Re: [FWDLK] 58 DODGE D 500 SUPER OPTION, QUESTION.



Ron, if you are asking about the 1957 D501 models: all of them
were manual transmissions.

Dunno about the 1956 D-500-1 models, as far as their trannies are concerned.

    The parts book doesn’t show any of the known 1957 Super D
    exclusively components. Like – for instance and among others –
    Generator Bracket, Shaft to Carburetor Rod and Coil Mounting Bracket.

    So, not listing a Super D cam doesn’t mean there wasn’t one. But
    like I explained earlier: the ‘basic’ D500 was capable enough to
    handle the increased air/fuel mixture flow at higher revs. And the
    higher revs were simply and solely accomplished by adjusting the
    transmission rod to a higher shifting point. Higher revs need more
    air/fuel mixture, that’s when the second (front) carburetor comes
    in. In contrary to the 1956, the 1957 Super D dual carburetor
    setup was progressively linked.
