  1. Thanks Terry, that was very helpful as I suspect the mechanical linkage settings are all part of the equation, R
  2. Hi Mobileparts, thanks your offer but I'm in Australia, so freight would be a killer, however time permitting could you perhaps physically check by pushing in the piston to see how far it goes, thanks from Down Under,
  3. When correctly assembled what should the stroke be of the 1 1/4 brake master cylinder, Thanks, Dicky
  4. Thanks Graeme, Mind boggling on first read, I will take time later to read it thoroughly. Was the bolt shop in Manns Rd, I used to work there,Richard
  5. Hello Newbie, i have still not figured it out, neither could two Auto Electricians, my 39 Chrysler has a Horn Ring not a button like the Dodges. It is so frustrating and stressfull not being able to figure the problem out so I have stepped back till i get my patience back, Richard
  6. I did it on my '39 Chrysler, best thing ever, let the purists whinge that the alternator is not original.!!
  7. It's an Australian built Holden HQ Premier sedan built by General Motors, Holden Division. i
  8. Yes ROY Clark of Hee Haw fame what a talent, what cant he play or sing!
  9. Here is a pic, you will note the Aussie assembled RHD cars shared a plain straight bumper as per Dodge, DeSoto etc, probably made here to increase local content and a reduce Government tariff charges. You will also note the Clergy bumper badge, this car was bought new by a gambling Catholic Priest after a big win. He had to sell it 12 months after a big loss. Car was bought then by a small town country business who owned a Funeral Parlor, Taxi Business and a Panel shop! Car saw action in all three places, as a Taxi it serviced a local Army base transferring WW2 American troops to and from the local Capital city, Brisbane. In about 1985 the car was retired and given a body off refresh by the Panel shop, however all the window winding and door mechanisms were all shot due to taxi service which I repaired with great difficulty shortly after purchase. I bought the car after being in their ownership for some 75 years and still going strong.
  10. Well..., Well !!....(as the famous Roy Clarke, guitarist would sometimes quip !) I sent the old girl off to my newly discovered nearby old timer bush mechanic, a knowledgeable guy on vintage Mopar cars. He zeroed in on brake shoe adjustment as his first priority and found that they were quite out of whack! He did his best to get them right without the Mopar special tool required to get the clearance and brake shoe heel and toe right. Hooray I have pedal, like something else not as hard as I would like but now some 100% improvement and car now stops pretty good! Thanks to all for all your input ! R
  11. What modern summer lubricants can you recommended for a 1939 Chrysler Royal Differential and gearbox w/- Overdrive, please Thanking you in advance, R
