  1. Thanx much. Very helpful.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. I will try to remember to do this tomorrow
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. This thread has been moved to the correct section: Chrysler products. Now if the admin could please eliminate this thread. Thanx and sorry for my mistake. Didn't mean to offend someone
  11. In looking for my high beam indicator lens we realized either my Windsor does not have one or it is one that uses one of the "turn indicator" lights for the high beam. I wanted both turn signal indicators to work as normal so I thought, why not have the shift knob glow when using the high beam. It's an easy DIY job. We are running the wires from the high beam switch that normally would go to the instrument panel light, up the steering column and thru the hollow shift lever. Connecting it to a low mcd LED. The result is a nice low glow that does not transmit thru the side. So it doesn't blind you. Only the ribs reflect the light and the dome in the center. So if anyone wants a little something different this is small easy fix and doesn't hurt the authenticity of a great old car. You can use for whatever kind of use you want. Even your alarm warning light.
  12. I have that on my cowl vent knob. Seems there are a few variations along the way. My inside vent knob was different as well as my lighter. It works for me

  14. It's from my 47 Windsor
  15. I would like to find the correct switch but if not we are just going to use a micro switch to do the same thing. Please keep checking though. If you have the little stainless piece with a complete molding I will buy the whole piece if necessary
  16. SEAL FOUND. THANX. I need the seal or complete vent flap that closes the heater vent at the bottom center of the unit. It attaches to one of the clear knobs under the dash. Not that one for the cowl vent. The rubber seal on mine is shot. I don't care about the condition of the metal part. Only the rubber seal. Any help will be appreciated so that we can get this jewel back in service.
  17. I was in the thought that it was Chrysler and Desoto airflow. I guess I didn't see the Chrysler only section. My bad. Maybe the moderators can move the threads to the correct Chrysler area.
  18. We are installing an aftermarket wiring harness in my vehicle and can't seem to figure out where the high beam indicator light is supposed to go. The original wiring diagram only shows its existence but not location. Any help will be greatly appreciated. This is one of that last items to hook up and I don't want to just stick a light anywhere. Also has anyone has their radio converted to a modern function radio. I am considering it but kinda hate to ruin the authenticity since it is in great original condition. But I do want FM radio and refuse to hang a unit under the dash or in glove box. The car is 95% original and I'm trying to keep it that way.
  19. 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.
  20. Thanx, Our car is the 47 Chrysler fluid drive. We need to know what is involved other than supplying power to solinoids. These actually are the diagrams we are using. I think we have it figured out but have to hook a micro switch to the accelerator. Then we should bet in business
  21. No problem. I have time. Thanx for the update and previous info

  23. Any luck with the other parts you may have? Am waiting with fingers crossed.
  24. Anyone have any leads? not sure which ones came on the 47 Windsor. I have found conflicting info in different places.
  25. Here's the little stainless piece. Thanx
