    49 chrysler rear brake adjustment

    Hello again how do you adjust rear brakes on 49 Chysler royal? They work but hub is getting hot and I think they are grabbing and not letting go, restricting wheel free turning.. I don't see a hole in the back that turns the spindle to adjust them with the brake tool Thank you

    1949 chrysler royal woodie for sale only $59,000

    I'm just on aaca to get help on rebuilding and selling my 49 Chrysler Royal Woodie I've had the utmost pleasure of dealing with Rusty o toole. bob Harwood and many other that have helped me immensely. I ve learned so much here and actually bought parts from some members with great response. Most people have been very nice -some hatefully degrading and offering no solution most very helpful I know I need criticism but that makes me better Thanks to everybody on this forum that makes it better and a learning tool not a condemnation of the hard work we do

  12. Hello everybody I have a 49 Chrysler and just bled the brakes and the brake pedal stays down to the floor I adjusted the hydraulic master cylinder and the brakes work well but pedal doesn't go back to top could it be the spring Help
  13. May I present a mostly restored 1949 Chrysler Royal Woodie , probably one of 4 or 5 existing out of 850 made in the world according to antique automobile forums. This woodie automobile has a 251 spitfire, 6 cylinder engine naturally aspirated by a carter one barrel carb resulting in 116 horsepower. All brand new tires have been installed are Coker, 3+1/4 inch radial, a new brake master cylinder and brake cylinders on all wheels, new front floor boards 16 gauge steel and rebuilt tranny tunnel. . The transmission is a fluidmatic which can run partially without a clutch, and has the shift on the column - hi low reverse- . This car is a one owner besides me (the restorer) , has mostly new white ash wood installed- unstained but left for the new buyer to select the color of their choice. The car requires a few small finishing details that are being completed. I have worked on this car almost 6 years, rebuilt motor , wood, new interior, new wood inside panels and roof. If you google 1949 Chrysler royal wagon for sale you will see that they sell for $179,000.00 at house of cars. I am not asking anywhere near this price although I have put in 6 years of work and parts and rebuilding on this car. Only $59,000 it is a steal!!!!!!! * Spitfire 251 cc engine * One previous owner * 8 passenger station wagon * 850 made in 1949 maybe 4 or 5 in existence * Fluidmatic transmission * New glass windows except one with inspection sticker on it from 1972 *new front metal floor boards *mostly new white ash wood * wooden head liner * Freshly painted
