    Love early Rocket Olds, 303, 324 speed parts etc.
  1. I'd like to use them on a 62' Chrysler wagon. The stock rims seem to be too narrow or not deep enough to accommodate.
  2. I assume the "whale oil" will have to be Dextron III + red bottle Lubegard. ?
  3. Thanks for the input. Got it figured out. Throttle rod out of adjustment. Drive is back in business. It's got fresh fluid. I'll change it again after driving / adjusting it more. thnks
  4. > Throttle rod out of adjustment < After several valve body tear downs (last fall) I've discovered tonight that the TV rod was way to low. Not sure why it worked before. I suppose the rear motors could have thrown things off. I've had the linkage off a few times after rebuilding the carbs. Maybe I threw it out then. After tightening it towards carbs, I now have drive gears. Still needs adjustment but at least it's shifting now. Anyway, thanks for your tip on the Chemtool.
  5. I did use Seafoam Trans-tune with the rear wheels jacked up just off the ground. I may for look that Chemtool. I think it circulated though I didn't try and elevate the car back and forth. It idled for a while up to temperature and tried to work through the gears.
  6. Hi, new to this forum. I do apologize if this is redundant. Just posted this in the AAC general technical forum. I'm getting ready to tear down / partially disassemble my hydramatic and am in search of any other thoughts on my issue before I do. This started last fall and I have yet to resolve it. I posted this in the classic olds forum last fall and received some much appreciated feedback. Just looking for any other hydramatic tips or suggestions before I disassemble this thing. 1951 Olds hydramatic: driven out of drive way down the street and back first time in years. ( 10+ ?) Shifted late and hard. (nothing new) Pulled back into drive to drop the pan drain torus and clean screen, clean valve body... before I do I back up once and it sticks in reverse and will not let go. Reverse only... forward gears engage but will not move forward, bogs down as if under load (resisting reverse cone clutch is my guess) In neutral reving up, car inches forward a bit. No pushing the car forward in neutral unless cranking or idling. I've since drained pan, torus and cleaned screen, valve body (several times) checked linkage, checked the movement of the servos with air... I'm about to pull the tail shaft to remove the reverse clutch assembly. Any other thoughts? Much appreciated.
  7. I've got a set of 66' Charger spinner hubcaps and want to find a set of rims that will accept them. They seem to require a deeper rim than the ones I have. Are there other years/ model rims that are similar?
