  1. Just a bump so people know this excellent carb is still available for now. Thanx
  2. 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.
  3. You have a great weekend Country. Make the best of it.
  4. I think I may have just found my own answer. According to my parts book, the club coupe takes a part# 1238 271. This is part# 1238 267. Is this right and if so does anyone have the correct one I need and possible trade for a rather nice NOS stone deflector? Guess I will be modifying another one. Good thing I'm pretty good at fabricating. Just hate when it's not necessary.
  5. I have now purchased 2 rear gravel guards for my '47 Windsor club coupe that were listed to fit my car. Neither do. The gravel guards are too long to fit between the rear fenders. Are the 6 and 8 cylinders different? The first one was supposed to be for a 6 cylinder club coupe. It had the same issue as this NOS one I just received which it's listed as follows from the seller; "Fits 1946-1947-1948 Chrysler---2 Dr sedan, 4 Dr sedan, Town sedan, Conv., coupe, 7 sedan & limo (Info taken from Chrysler parts book)" After that what do I do. I modified the first one to fit my car (3rd picture) and was hoping this one would bolt right on. NOT! What's wrong with my car?
  6. This is s very helpful topic
  7. Thanx for looking
  8. Thanx again. I just hope it helps someone get their car running good. It operates prefect. John Plaskan does great work as I'm sure you do also. He goes to most of the shows and swap meets around the country like the Turkey Rod Run, Hershey, etc. peddling his wares. Nice guy also. I appreciate your help. I still need to find the linkage that connects the automatic choke to the butterfly. I fabricated the other one that was missing on the EV1.
  9. With the popularity of food trucks this would make a great "snack" truck. Homemade donuts or something similar. The uniqueness of the truck would help sell a delicious product. Nice wheels and motor would attract the customers.
  10. Ya gotta get lucky once in a while. I fabricated the linkage on the side of the carb. Hopefully I got the length close. However if someone has the correct one and also the linkage that connects the automatic choke on the manifold to the top of the carb, I sure could use them. Slight bending will adjust enough, I think.
  11. The carburetor that was supplied with our Windsor did not have the kickdown switch attached and we cannot find in any parts boxes. I had the carb rebuilt by John Plaskan so I'm hoping to find the switch by itself to keep from wasting money on another carb. This one is running great. Part # Carb kickdown # 1121 125, or 870 864
  12. I finally found and bought the correct Carter B&B carb. The only thing missing is the choke rod that goes from the upper butterfly to the lower dog cam and the linkage that connects to the choke to the carb. Thanx for everyone's help.
  13. Keep an eye on eBay. I just bought one at a very reasonable price. It cleaned up to look almost new. On another note in reference to parting out the Royal, do you have the pair of cowl mounted mirrors? I also need the small clip the hides the seam on the outer stainless steel window trim?
  14. Do you have a picture of the 870862 terminal plate? Thanx
  15. I'm sure there aren't many out there and a lot of people wanting them but I would like to add one to my 1947 Windsor club coupe. Not particular about condition. I can restore or refurbish if I can obtain one economically. Thanx for any help.
  16. 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.
  17. Thanx much. Very helpful.
  18. Can't find the listing. The only one I can find has been listed for quite a while and is a 2 barrel. If you see again please post a link or an item #. Thanx
  19. I will try to remember to do this tomorrow
  20. The wheels on my 1948 Windsor must not be correct. I bought what I believed to be the correct dog dish style hub cap with Chrysler script. I think it is a 10", and when I tried to put on the wheel it will not come close to snapping in place. They do have the clips but the size does not fit. I ended up purchasing a set of one piece hubcaps I believe for a 1950 and they fit and look good but ultimately I would like to get the 2 piece wheel covers that have the hubcap and trim ring. But I need the correct wheels to start. Is there a part number i should look for? This is a picture of my current hubcaps.
  21. Can you post pix of these or send to steelbreeeeze@aol.com? Or text to 954 558 1382 Thanx much. I'll try and look up numbers
  22. First of all it's the Stromberg that camber on some. We are either going to have to adapt one of these switches or most likely just use a micro switch to accomplish the same thing
  23. I can't unmount the tires to take a measurement but I did know these are not the wheels that originally came with the car. In the beginning it was in the hands of a scammer which is why I need some of the parts that I do. I would rather the wider wheels but it's not that crucial. I would need then shipped to 33009. Do you have all 5? Thanx
  24. As I stated in the post. The clips are on the wheels. But there must be variations. The hubcap I believe is correct it's my wheels that are wrong. EVEN THO THEY HAVE THE 5 CLIPS. Do you have a set that might be correct?
