    I like old cars... a lot.
  1. yes, sorry about the expired posting, here is a link to the CL posting: http://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/4319157526.html would like 2500 since ive put a lot of work/money into it.
  2. To be honest it's not, but it's very quick and only for a few seconds. The tie rods are what was in the way and pushing them very slightly out of the way slides it out easily. No damage was done to the tie rods and for some reason, it slips in easily, it's just impossible to get out.
  3. I need the headlight ring fittings for a 1955 chrysler windsor deluxe and also the air regulator. I'm not sure if it is called the air regulator or what, if someone could tell me exactly what I'm looking for that would be great. I have a manual choke on it right now and was also wondering how I could fix that and if the air regulator (?) Would fix that. As for the rings, I have the entire headlight assembly with the exception of the rings that hold the headlights in place. If anybody is selling those I'd be happy to buy for the right price.
  4. I know there is a lot of trouble removing the oil pan on old Windsors (mines a 55), but I didn't have a way of picking out the engine so I could replace the gaskets, so I had to improvise. If you put a jack between the ti rods and the engine block (i did it on the left side) and push it about 3-5 inches the oil pan will slide out pretty easily. Just letting you guys know because it wouldn't come out for me without doin this.
  5. I have a 1955 Chrysler Windsor project for sale, I'm going to college so I need to sell this and get something I can drive longer distances without as much trouble. This runs and drives, but only under 45 mph, because it has to use a manual choke to start. For more info on the car you can see it on Craigslist here: http://fresno.craigslist.org/cto/4248731322.html this is complete with pictures, info, and contact info, but please reply here if you could.
  6. Hello, I am extremely new to restoring cars, but i have a passion to learn about them. This is my first car and currently I am simply trying to remove the oil pan to clean it, and i'm not sure what exactly is going on but i must be missing something really simple because i have drained the oil, and removed all of the bolts but still, no matter how i move the pan, there is always about two inches of clearance i still need to be able to remove the pan. the tye rods seem to get in the way but i have lowered and raised the car and nothing helps. is there something i need to remove to get to it? Another problem i have had is finding the correct part or parts to be placed atop the carburetor. right now i have to use a manual choke to start and run it, and the car only gets about 35mph. if anybody has information on those parts or even those parts for sale please let me know. I know this is a lot but bear with me for this last question: How can i match the engine and chassis numbers? i have both and i am pretty sure they should match, i just need concrete proof. Thank you all for your time.
