  1. I am searching for the rear quarter window garnish moldings and one set of front and rear flipper window cranks. There are other pieces I an in need of but these are the most urgent. Thanx for any help that can be provided.

    I am in need of the transmission interrupter switch. For some reason the one that is currently installed has 2 prongs on the top instead of only one. The transmission and engine were fully rebuilt before I acquired the car and this is what was on it. And I can't afford the close to two hundred bucks some people want for theirs. I'll just have to wait for a break or for someone wanting to trade out for another part I may have.
  3. We're in the final stages of installing the aftermarket wiring harness but other than having the complete wiring diagram for the car, we need a more isolated diagram for the fluid drive wiring and components. I saw Long Island wiring sells a harness for this area but not sure if we need to purchase that since we are not using an original 6 volt harness for the rest of the car. Any helpful hints will be appreciated. Please post the diagram if anyone has this info. We are not sure other than the trans solenoids if all of the components are on the car. ie: ignition interrupt switch, etc. Thanx for the help. Hope to be driving her soon.

    Would be easier and cheaper to get the correct carb than to change transmissions. Besides having the correct functionality. As you see I was in the same predicament

    Yes I did get the correct carb. The micro switch was our first option until the carburetor became available. Now I'm just looking for the correct interrupter switch. The one that came on mine from them rebuilding the trans doesn't seem to be correct. Mine has 2 prongs and should only have 1
  6. Very old topic but next time check with John Plaskan @ He is an excellent carb rebuilder and has an unlimited source of old carb parts. He's in Webster Florida. 813 713-5820.
  7. I am still in need of the correct interrupter switch for my M5 tranny. I can't afford the one on eBay. Way outta my price range. If anyone knows of one available please let met know.
  8. Does this look correct? All the info I have shows one lead on the interrupter switch and as in the picture mine has two. This transmission was thoroughly rebuilt before I obtained the car so I have no idea if this was replaced or is what they removed and reinstalled. Does anyone have any idea if this is correct and if so what does the other lead connect to? The leads with the clips do not seem like a brake light type switch. I've looked around in the forum for a couple days and can't find the info I need. Thanx once again. Mark
  9. Pedal Pads

    I would think Andy Bernbaum would have replacements.
  10. Agreed. I live in south Florida and have a couple sources that will get me a title for around $400.00. And with no trouble at all. Just as long as there is no police report of it having been stolen. So I agree that if you can get a better deal without and makes him think you are gong to save him a big headache, then go for it. And there are other ways of getting a title too. Register in a no title state, then take to your DMV and transfer. They will send you a nice new title.

    This was done with a rattle can but it is also offered in a type you can spray from spray equipment. I have used the black from RPM for more than 20 years. This brand is new to me for wrinkle finish although I have used their heat resistant and header paint for many years. This one is from VHT. One thing about wrinkle finish is that you must follow the instructions almost to the letter. I have expedited the drying and wrinkling effect with heat before with good success. Almost mandatory in cold climates. VHT seems to be available in black, red, blue and gray. They all seem to be pretty heat resistant once cured and offer a durable coating. The RPM I always referred to as typewriter paint. Like the vintage typewriters had. I use extensively on motorcycle parts and valve cover inserts. Great for detailing.
  12. BEFORE: ^^^^^ BEFORE: ^^^^^ AFTER: ^^^^^ AFTER: ^^^^^ I couldn't afford to have my grill rechromed so I got hold of a descent condition grill and needed a way to improve the look of the harmonica insert section of the grill. I use wrinkle finish paint in my shop all the time but in the past have only found black and that wouldn't look right. Then I searched for other colors and found a very nice grey that I thought would look correct. After a few hours of prep and a lot of taping this is the outcome. It did what I wanted in hiding the pits in the painted portion of the grill. Plus it produces a hardened protection to help prevent future oxidation. I scuffed the insert sections with a purple scotch pad to open up the the pits then used the wrinkle finish paint exactly according to instructions. It produces a fine wrinkle that looks almost factory. Here's a before and after. This can help in many other areas for detail, especially under the hood. Hope it helps in your future projects.

    Yeah, kinda. Once ya figure out a system it's not too bad. But worth the outcome. I ended up measuring the length of the rectangle sides and tearing a lot of pieces of tape to size. Then just slapped em on. I have a custom paint and body shop so I'm used to masking things tediously. Even though not totally authentic, I like using wrinkle finish for contrasting detail. Like I said, the final product is worth the time and effort.
  14. Thanx. That's what I needed to know. I just wanted to make sure this one wont work before buying another. This is what came on the car and I wasn't around when the tranny was rebuilt and reassembled
  15. If anyone has first hand experience with this as far as knowing if the 2 prong switch in miner is correct or if there is a part number located on the switch, please let met know if mine can still be correct and possibly one prong is simply grounded.
  16. As some of you know my 47 Windsor came with the wrong carb to use with the fluid drive tranny. However I did have it rebuilt and rebushed by John Plaskan of John Plaskan antique auto parts before I found out this fact. The car runs fantastic and idles prefect. I finally found the correct carb for my Windsor and will now be selling the Stromberg which is factory correct for some Chrysler products. It has only been operated for tuning and testing of the electrical system. Most likely less than an hour of operation. I have it listed on eBay with a starting bid of $250. Which is the cost of the rebuild. Buy it now price is 385.00. If someone on the forum needs this carb I will make a generous allowance because of the tremendous help the forum has shown towards me. So in short, this is a sure thing. Not an older rebuild or NOS or a "has been sitting on the shelf" carb. Bolt it on and you're running. Plain n simple. I hope this ends up helping someone. Now I am sending the correct carb to John for rebuilding. I hope to have the 47 up and running in a couple months. Fingers crossed.
  17. I'm in no hurry. The mechanic that was helping with that project just baled on me so the rest is up to me from here. I can finish the electrical but will take me a little longer than it would have taken him. This is the problem dealing with proper with mental conditions.
  18. I have for sale an almost prefect original hood ornament for a 1949 - 1950 Chrysler that is absolutely beautiful. It has not been rechromed. I will post close up pix of any flaws I see visible. I would consider this as close to show quality original as it can get. I will take into consideration any serious offers and or trade for 46-48 Windsor parts that I may need as listed in my other posts. Hope someone gets to take advantage of this gorgeous piece.
  19. Thanx. I saw that also but it's odd that the one that was sold was listed as a neutral safety switch. Most neutral safety stitches look like mine with 2 leads instead of one
  20. Not the outer moldings but the garnish molding that surrounds the quarter window on the inside. But this is a club coupe which is different than other ones. The stainless steel window molding clips should come of fairly easy but I'm good with metal so I can most likely straighten a slight bend out of it. You also mentioned hub caps. I have had a lil trouble in that area also. I ended up using a set from I believe a 50 or 51. What is the measurement on your hubcaps please? I don't need fog lamps as I have had my housings rechromed. But ya never know. We have to start figuring out what kinda deal you want for any parts I can use.
  21. Valence looks to be in descent shape. Mine already has the holes for mounting fog lamps I also need rocker moldings for my club coupe. And now I need the interrupter switch on the fluid drive tranny. I still need the rear quarter garnish moldings and 1 stainless side window trim piece that hides the seam where the 2 ends meet. We'll keep trying. LOL
  22. The one that sold is listed as a neutral safety switch which mine does look like and what my mechanic thought it was. The interrupters are different. I wish I could use the neutral safety switch but don't believe they do the same operation.
  23. That was my thoughts. To me it looks like a brake light switch. But who knows. Now I just have to find someone selling the correct interrupter switch.
  24. These are pictures of the complete harness section that does the interior and the 3 different operations of the fluid drive. As in kickdown mode. 3rd speed and 4th speed operations.
