  1. Why not just ask him if he can have it completed by xx/xx/xxxx. If he says no, then say then I need to take the car. If he says yes, hopefully he does it. If not, take the car and move on. I went through the same thing with a body shop. They got it sanded and some primer and it sat in the corner of the garage and collected dust. Did as I suggested above. He said it was on his back burner. So, I took the car elsewhere.
  2. I believe this to be true! I will take a look and see if the jacket can come up enough to maybe get at the upper bearing where the horn wire is soldered to. If not, I am cuttning the wire and putting a remote horn button in. Hate doing that but it is not a show car so!!
  3. Well, it certainly looks similar. Not sure how that bearing is to come out though. I tried using a pick but no way it will pull up.
  4. Thanks for replying auburnseeker. Is the hub ring in the steering column? How do you get it out?
  5. Hello, so on my 1940 Oldsmobile series 90. I have the steering weel off. If I hook up the battery the horn blows. Now, in the engine compartment, if I wiggle the wire going into the steering column it will stop, then if I put the weel on and turn it slightly it blows again. I am assuming the wire is shorting out. How do I get the wire out? Where is it connected? With the wheel off, I do not see a wire and the manual does not speak to this. I am tempted to bypass the wiring and install a horn button under the dash! Really hate doing that though. Any help?
  6. Used or nos. I do not have a part number.
  7. Looking for the gravel guards that go on the front of the rear fenders behind the rear passenger doors. 1940 Olds Series 90. Thanks, Scot
  8. Hello, yes I did that. still no luck. Ended up taking the insturment cluster out of the dash to get the new wires on. Still have not finished it all! Thanks for replying. Scot
  9. Any ideas on how to remove the ignition switch on my 40 Olds Series 90?
  10. SO, what I did was undo two barrel nuts from the instrument cluster and pushed it towards the firewall. I then removed four nuts from the dash section that the light switch is attached to and pull it toward the steering wheel. This gave me access to the wires on the switch. Now on to the instrument wiring!
  11. I have had a post on the Olds section for weeks with no answer yet! Seems to be the best kept secret on a 1940 Olds!
  12. Hello, I am in the middle of replacing the wiring harness on my 1940 Oldsmobile Series 90. I can not get the headlight switch removed to get to the wires. I have pushed down on the spring steel that the rod is going through but no success. Is there a way to remove the switch without taking the dash apart? Thanks, Scot
  13. Hello, I am at a loss. Putting in a new wire harness on my Series 90. I can not for the life of me get the headlight switch out. Pushing down on what feels like a spring steel piece that is over the switch rod. Will not release the rod. Any ideas, photo of what I am supposed to be pushing on? Thanks in advance. Scot
  14. Very nice condition 81 MB 300SD. Paint is glossy with no rust. Interior in very nice shape. New glow plugs and realay, flex discs, Bilstein shocks, alternator. Runs and drives very well. I am the second owner. Bought it in 2002 with 145,000 miles, my wife drove it a few years. We then put vintage tags on it and then antique tags. Ended up taking the antique tags off and putting regular PA tags back on and drove the car to commute 80 miles per day. Never let us down once. Now has 271,000 miles on the 5 cylinder turbo diesel. Tires have excellent tread. PA state inspected till 4/13.
