  1. The postal service has closed a lot of their hubs and even my mail lady told me things that use to take 3-5 days are now taking over a week. I live in MI and had a small package mailed over a week and a half ago from NY and still not here!
  2. Did they use red primer in 1941? My 1940 56s was a grey primer from the factory.
  3. Still waiting on ours in Michigan.
  4. I agree and you can buy a lot of polish for $420.00 !
  5. I sure would be interested in some hood springs for a 48 Nash Ambassador as mine are weak and won't hold the hood all the way up.
  6. There is a group that does the route 66 tour each year. Last year was the first year and I joined them at the start in Joliet IL. The same group does a old US27 tour in Michigan each year and it is fantastic. Last year they had nearly 800 cars. Well organized and planned. This year the 66 tour is Oct. 4th - 18th. www.route66motortour.com
  7. Jack M, As seen here in your picture in the center is the aluminum fins for the speaker grill I need. The plastic can just be broke off the dash as all I need are the fins.
  8. Jack M this is the spring for the right side. Left one is reversed with points up on opposite ends.
  9. Jack M, sent you a PM. Papaw
  10. Yes, John is right! I am in the process of doing a 48 and would jump on it but it is a slipstream, and mine is a trunk back. I sure would like to get the left front door upper hinge assembly if possible. Can't locate the spring on the assembly for the left side that keeps the door open.
  11. Today an answer from a Nash person "That lever adjusts and controls the tension in the clutch pedal." Guess I got to do a little more reading!
  12. Both good guess. The car did not have a vacuum clutch to my knowledge but will pull out shop manual tomorrow and read more. I have read it over and over and don't recall anything on vacuum. To convert cars to RHD good thought, but why the loop? I wonder what years this was used on, or if any other Nash owners have this. I posted in the Nash section but no replies.
  13. I found a photo of the transmission and you can see the shaft goes all the way across the transmission for the clutch. Now what is the purpose of it???
