  1. Looking for window trim for 37 truck passenger door. Truck is a 1 1/2 ton. What else do you have?
  2. Update. Finished up transmission install today and drove car about 10 miles. Shifted a lot better than before. Only issue I’m having is clutch disengages right before pedal hits firewall. Trying to figure out why.
  3. Thanks for your help Doug. Car rear end is back in. Will try and button up a few things tomorrow and test drivew
  4. Apparently I am wrong. I do not have a 2506 u joint. 2506 does not have bushing and the parts are not interchangeable with b5233. Thanks Harry Reding for this correction. One U joint I have has yoke casting number db 161 on transmission yoke. Really can’t read other numbers clearly. I repaired the u joint that came out of car and hopefully will be fine. I apologize for the misinformation And confusion, John
  5. So here’s what I found. B5057 yoke on B5223 u joint is about 0.400” inch longer than B1507 yoke on B2506 u joint all other dimensions on all other parts are the same B5233 has steel type bushings B2506 has brass type i believe you can use the longer yoke on older cars ( tried it and seems to fit, Mark’s idea). you may be able to use older ujoint on newer cars but torque tube shaft would be in ujoint housing 0.400” less. Might or might not cause trouble Heres what I did. My older style lock ring and bushing had minor damage so put newer style with origi
  6. Thanks for the responses. I compared the u joint from my 17 with alum housing to stamped steel transmission and here is what I noticed 17 u joint has brass bushing. Later transmission has steel bushings. bushing appear to be the same dimension and I think I interchangeable. The only difference I found is one yoke is shorter than other. The 2 universal housings are totally different. 17 has 7 bolt holes. When I get home will post more details. I think I am going to repair mine.
  7. Just took my 17 transmission apart a few days ago. The sequence was as you described
  8. Rebuilding Transmission and clutch and found some damage and wear on my u joint. Wondering if anyone has one they are willing to part with. Thanks, John
  9. Wondering correct installation for h channel between top and bottom glass. should the bottom of the “h” straddle the bottom piece of glass and the top of “h” be outside top piece of glass.
  10. Glad I found this old post. Having issues with my 17 dodge brothers clutch and getting ready to start work.
  11. Hi all, working on finishing 17 roadster ser# 157,775. Wondering how the original wire looming was routed on firewall and material. My firewall has been replaced and I have no holes for wire. First 2 pictures are of firewall in 23 coupe. Was 17 the same? third picture is firewall I acquired with parts. Is this the correct location for wire loom holes? Any pictures or information would be appreciated.
