I can assure you it is a very clear 1634983 as well as the one on my 58 Firedome was. Have I perhaps misunderstood the measuring of a pinion ? When I measure the yoke stem it is 1 7/8"...
that is the inner diameter of the pinion seal.

The pinion seal for a 55-57 Dodge was 663 602 which crosses to an SKF 18880 which has an inner diameter of 1.875" (1 7/8")

That`s a very good thread Dave , it tells me I have the same pinion seal as your 56 D500.

That is true. However, I think the main point of that thread was to point out that a 1958 Dodge Pinion, PN 1828 644, which also crossed up to a much later flange, i.e. a 3004 872. Supposedly the same thing as a 58 Dodge 1826 644, just a newer NOS PN. I will call it an 1828 644 to be consistent. Both it and the 57 1738 748 seem to have the same key dimensions, i.e. the distance from the 10 spline end of the flange to the "bottom" of the U-joint bearing cap seat.

Using the 1828 644 allows you to go with a "modern" U-joint, like a MOOG 315G, provided that you use a Ford Pinion spacer when installing the pinion.

Now I have compared the two pinions on 741 and 742 rear ends with my 1634983. As some guys already know the 1634983 pinion is quite slender without a step in diameter for the inner
bearing looking just like the 741. This is a fact.
I made new pads between the leafs and could save all the retainers after some repairs. My grandpas 100 year old powerbelt supplied the raw material for the pads. I think it was balate
and that is quality I would say.
I am going to paint the body shell on tuesday and I can`t wait for the sound of the jaws dropping...surprise, surprise...

Goose bumps..this is structure paint. No side moldings, matte silver bumpers on this car. I have done many original restorations so I decided to do this last one
a little differently. These are only cars after all...

You have been amazingly quick on this build. I hope to be as active as you are when I finally retire.
My lancer is painted with a texture on it, but it's just primer with a tint. Then they put clear coat over it. Now the clear coat is starting to peel and I'm left with bare tinted primer. Fortunately, it doesn't rain much here, otherwise I would be concerned about it.

This paint is polyurethane with 2k hardener and it gets incredibly tough and durable. It is close to u-pols raptor.

Finally got the frame blasted. I examined it carefully and found the number 203057 on the left frame beam behind the rear axle . Suppose 57 is the year but 2030 I have no clue...

That should correlate to your motor number. Check the motor to see what it says.

Unfortunately that motor is missing....a 318LA is going to fill that vacancy.
Would that original motor number have been KDS-2030 then ?

Yes, probably, though I don't know much about '57 Dodges.

The frame is finished in epoxy..
The red areas are where I have stamped the VIN , to be sure on two locations. In Finland the law requires a stamped VIN number.
