  1. I have replaced my rubber on the vent windows, all hardware is in good shape the passenger side works perfectly, the driver side is sitting low in the rubber there is a small gap at the top. Does anyone know how to adjust the alignment so that the window will sit in the rubber properly ? Any help ?
  2. I want to thank all of you for getting my 1941 Chrysler on the road, now that I am driving it more, I have a question about the running temp. What should the normal temp be for the 242 flathead 6 ?. When I run the car the temp gauge goes up to the red mark of the gauge, never higher(I only drive about fifty miles one way at a time.) this worries me I would like to drive a little further, but i worry that I will over heat. Any help, thanks
  3. I am looking for a exhaust manifold with casting numbers 666876-2 it's for a 1941 chrysler 242cid flathead 6, please contact me if you have one to sale.
  4. Would anyone know where I might purchase interior glass window sweeps for a 1941 Chrysler ?
  5. Fustydad: Thanks, I have worked out all the problems, I was having with the transmission. Now I am completing the interior restoration. Now I am redoing my front end suspension, the only part I would like to have is the lower control arms, in the near future. Skip
  6. I wanted to thank all of you for the help with the fluid drive, I am back on the road. I found a place in Torrence, California that was able to do the work. I really wanted to thank Desoto Frank and Rusty O'Toole, thanks for putting up with my questions, it's all down hill from here. My next question is exactly which oil to use (30W non-detergent) ? What is the final conclusion on the tires (Bias- Radial) ?
  7. This sounds very much like my vehicle, are you located in southern california, thats where my "Bertha" is. Does the vehicle work properly now ?
  8. I think I found a mechanic to repair my transmission vacumatics, thanks for the help. Here in Southern California there are not many who can work on these old models, not many around.
  9. I do belong to the WPC, I have had a better responds fron AACA, I need to see a car in Southern California. This not my first restoration, I remember having to wear out shoe leather and travel to other ststes to find parts for My 1931 Model A, 1940 Chevy Delux, 1957 Chevy 3100, I just wanted to find something different, and I have. Thanks
  10. My mechanic has given up, Doesn't anyone have a 1941 Chrysler/Royal/Windsor/Desoto 6 cylinder with fluid drive that I can get a picture of the electrics for the shifting of the trans, all the electric have been removed and I need to know where the componets a placed for the signal to the solenoid for the up shift, this is a solid car that needs to be driven. Please help me get it on the road. Thanks
  11. I wanted to ask if anyone would have any images of the m4 transmission and fluid drive in a 1941 Chrysler. All the components were removed from the vacuum to carb to the switches of the transmission, I have recovered most of the parts required to fix the problem. My major problem is that looking at the manuals and schematics, there is not a good picture of the exact locations for the shifting components, I think I am missing a mounting bracket for the switch to the carb and/or throttle, if I could see a picture of existing car with this set up I know I could mount all the components in the rig
  12. Please help!!!! Isn't there someone out there with a 1941 Chrysler willing to take detailed pictures of their electrical controls/componets to the fluid drive, so I may get my 1941 on the road. Any help would be good, Thanks

  14. On EBAY there is a seller offering interior plastic for the 1941 Chrysler, the seller name is TOWNANDCOUNTRY1947 the price is $1200.00 for the set, including dash knobs.
  15. This looks just like my chrysler, do you have any pictures of the electrical componets, from the carb to the transmission solenoid and so on, everything was removed from the car and I need to replace the electrical componets, which I think I have all of them, but seeing how they mount on the car, I would know if I have all I need to make the transmission work properly. Any pictures you would have would be useful. THIS CAR RUNS GREAT AND IS SOLID, be a shame to let it sit because I can't figure out the electrics, I think there are some brackets missing for the set up, Thanks

  18. I appreciate all the knowledge and help I can get in trying to troubleshoot the fluid drive transmission on my 1941 Chrysler, now that I have the mechanics working properly, I need to figure out the transmission wiring, with the transmission being first year M4 vacumatic type the kickdown switches/relays/solenoids operates from different sources than the later years, I am trying to figure out the upshifting circuts, I have a schematic drawing, and I would like to know exactly where and how these conponets fit into the circuts ?, and possible the part numbers of these relays/switches/solenoids

  20. I have a M4 transmission in my 1941 Chrysler, I have rebuilt most of the mechanics and now I am trying to adjust the shifting. I can't get the trans to shift up. I was hoping someone could tell me the exact operation sequence for troubleshooting the workings. The vacuum is working, the solenoid is working, the govenor checks out, but still no up shift. Any advise would help. Also would anyone know of a mechanic on the west coast that might be able to look at the transmission, all of the help i can find is on the east coast, if you know of a mechainc near Los Angeles, CA. could you direct me
  21. I have a 1941 Chrysler Royal with a fluid drive transmission, I have had the diaphram replaced and now I am being told that the vacum pull cable is broken and the transmission won't shift on its own, because the vacum pull cable is broken. I thought that this cable was for freewheeling when pulled out, and I wanted to know if anybody can tell me what this cable does, before I continue to troublshoot the transmission. Any info would be of a great help
  22. Rusty here's my problem, I had the transmission rebuilt, and the electrical converted 6 to 12 volts (my mistake). Now the transmission works, but doesn't shift up, when the electrical shop did the electrical, all voltage reducers were added as needed, the transmission shop said the voltage was wrong and now the solenoid to the govenor is burned out, I would like to find what should be the right way of reducing the voltage, before buying another solenoid/govenor and giving it to the shop. Now the chrysler is 12 volts neg. ground, any suggestions would be useful, Thanks
  23. Did they make a 12 volt govenor for the fluid drive chrysler transmission ?. I am having a hard time getting my transmission to work right, now the transmission shop is giving up. Here in Los Angeles, Calif. it's hard to find a mechanic who works on vintage Chryslers. Any advice would be helpful.
  24. I just had my 1941 Chrysler Royal converted from 6 volts to 12 volts, and I wish I had not listen to the mechanic, because now I can't get the transmission to shift up. I was told that the govenor burned out, using a voltage reducer, can anyone tell me what I can do to resolve this problem. Did they make a 12 volt govenor for the fluid drive in a newer model ?. Any advice I can get will be appricated
