    41 Packard polarity problem

    Frozen clutch disc again...cold damp weather?. With the engine off... wheels locked/blocked... put it in 3rd... push clutch in.... try cranking over starter.... if the disc was the issue it should quickly break free. Heat, moisture, freezing can stick a clutch disc if the engine didn't get hot enough to heat soak all parts.

    driveshaft lubrication

    I went through both my 1953 and 1954 Chrysler Shop manuals to understand this proper lube of the spline joint... The 1940-52 Chryslers use grease on the splined slip joint. A grease fitting is on the splined yoke on the early cars. The 1953 and 54 Chrysler made a change to lube as you have made me aware of.... Thank you on that. Some info out of both the 1953 ad 54 Chrysler Shop manuals..

    driveshaft lubrication

    No gear lube oil is used on any old MoPar center driveline carriers except maybe the 30's cars...BIG CW Imperial Airflow, LB Chrysler's CG's etc... see photo... They take up to 2 pints of lube oil. Also shown are the 1954 Windsor Six Chrysler "Winged U-Joints"....... very hard to find. You can see the slip joint threaded cap and in the middle you can just see the excess grease bleed off hole...

    1949 m6 reverse linkage

    That's because the reverse/forward shift linkage adjustment is changing as the car is lifted... loose worn engine mounts are likely the cause but..adjusting the forward/reverse linkage rod and taking out the excess slop should fix this. As mentioned in the other thread already posted.

    41 Packard polarity problem

    A good Packard does not need a conversion to 12 volts.....hackers.

    1949 Chrysler windsor wheel cylinder

    He might be talking about these retainer springs used on the heavy chassis Chrysler brakes... eight cylinder and wagon 12" brakes ...they are similar to bendix brakes... There is a pin, rubber inner insulator, steel tube sleeve, spring and retainer cap.

    no reverse how to adjust link 49 chrysler fluidmatic

    The reverse adj. on early M-6 1949 -50 Chrysler transmissions can be located either at the transmission shifter cover of at the shift rod at the fire wall... If you over adjust too much one way or the other you will not be able to get reverse or too far the other way no forward....just remove the excess slop in the rod... no more.
  10. The 1949 Royal Woodie arm rests are covered with Tolex and are shaped different. So no they are not the same.
  11. Better join to get what you need.....http://www.rv-coach.com/current_category.181/Forum.39964/forum_thread_full.html
  12. I spoke too soon..... the seal you show is the OE correct style. I thought mentioned was the later two piece as I mentioned...typical front crank seal with a separate external felt dust seal pushed into the back of the pulley.🙄
  13. No slinger or Felt seal is used on the Chrysler Straight eights. They don't leak with a good pulley hub surface and the correct seal. The felt washer was used on the 1953 on up 23" and 25" engines if the crank pulley had the recess and prongs in it to hold the felt dust seal from rotating in the pulley.

    Chevrolet town and country woodkits

    The "Town and Country" is a Chrysler built luxury car built from 1941-1950. All massive exacting fit and finish woodwork. The Chevrolet "Country Club Kit" was a a wood overlay kit to imitate the Ford Sportsman and the T&C Chrysler's. It does look good.
  16. lets see pictures of some of these parts....

    1960s car sales TV add.

    In 1968 Ralph opened up a new Chrysler Dealership (North Seattle Chrysler Plymouth) a couple miles from my N. Seattle parents home. I was 16 then and had my 51 Plymouth. So of course I'd have to go in there and check out the cars and parts dept. His loud crazy ads were on TV with him and his dog Storm. Oh those were the days of good TV ads..

    1949 Chrysler windsor wheel cylinder

    The replacement Lockheed style cylinders now mostly all made in China are made incorrectly position wise and with all different types of piston depths and piston rubber cups.. This can cause the need for a shorter push rod. Also too thick of shoe lining can be an issue on these old Mopars...... .185" max thickness on lining...... and linings need to be arc'ed to fit each drum... A lot of things people need to know when working on these old Mopars and to do them right need some special tools or drive em till the shoes wear in to the drum shape and keep adjusting brakes till finally seated in 100% then they are awesome brakes and work extremely well. Asbestos linings are the best for service but I will not go there. Some pics of all these issues...

    Lift suggestions

    R&R 'ing front coil springs on a 4 post is a snap using rolling jacks.. ...raise the front of car off runways with rolling jack..pull tires..(jack positioned rear of front wheels) leaves work area wide open) ...set 8" X 8" block at outer end of lower A-arm..lower car down on blocks ..disconnect lower ball joint or knuckle support lower pin bolt and nut ..loosely safety chain spring to lower control arm for safety .. raise front end of car till springs are loose , ....A-arms hanging down .. remove spring/springs. With two rolling jacks it's even easier.
