  1. Thanks guys , thought that was the case but wanted to make sure . Keep on the sunny side !!
  2. Were the early 50's Mopar transmissions syncronized in 2nd gear when down shifting ? Should it grind when down shifting ? It is fine when up shifting ? Hope this makes sense :confused:
  3. Thanks guys , it is a 50's Mopar and set in metal . They are tapered and flush mounted head. They are rounded out pretty bad .
  4. Hello all The head of the screw is rounded out and on top of that they are recessed about a half inch in the door post ........ any ideas on how to remove would be appreciated . Thanks !
  5. Hello all After sitting a few days gas seems to be running back toward fuel pump? there is a glass bowl before the carb and it becomes empty and have to crank it a lot ( bad ) or pour gas in carb . At first I thought it was the carb ( orig. carter ) leaking down but now not sure . Also bowl is lower than the carb . Thanks for any help ! Ray
  6. Thanks Dave , good info ! Now i am thinking about my 51 pontiac 2dr hardtop that did not have the split but seems some did ? Dont remember if mine was a catalina .
