  1. Maybe it is still there in the attic!!! Waiting for you!?
  2. I know, your sign is just fantastic. Great design that inspired me to make mine. Unfortunately neon is not so easy to simulate. You will sell it quickly!
  3. Really love it. But for 10 grand I rather buy cars, not signs. 😁😂
  4. To give you an update, the neutral clutch drum was totally broken in the hydramatic. Dramatic failure!
  5. Spent the evening watching videos of people dismantling hydramatics. The horror to do that is still there but it seems to be manageable - at least the dismantling part. 😂😂😂😂 I need to see it as a free of charge (hahaha) opportunity to learn. 🤣🤣🤣
  6. Hi, no it shifted down to 3rd without me touching the lever.
  7. Hi, the linkage was good, everything tight and nice. Shifted the hand lever and it was delivered to the tranny. Just opened the pan of the tranny, nothing in the pan, looks good to me, but I do know similar to nothing about how it should look.
  8. Pan is clean, nothing that I can see.
  9. Was not low on fluid. Checked that even on the highway while idling.
  10. Hi, just crawled underneath. No easy fix. Linkage between shift leaver and transmission is completely okay. That leaves it to the tranny. I just drained it and now I open the pan...
  11. Back home on a flatbed trailer..... 👍
  12. Hi, back home, had to wait for 2 hours but then we were quickly off the highway on a yellow flatbed ADAC car. Pays off to be a member. Tranny has enough dexron 3. Checked it before we left. A little leak but nothing spectacular. Will look underneath the car later. Food supply now. 😁😁😁😁 Thank you!!!!!
  13. Did so already. Waiting for 90 min now.
  14. Dear all, standing on the highway with my '56 CdV and in need of quick and good advice. No matter what I do with the hydramatic gear selector, there are no gears. Car is in neutral and idles fine, but no reverse, no low, no drive. Still in neutral. Looks like the connection of the lever to the transmission is gone. Any other explanation, quick fix or solution? We were driving in 4th gear, then it shifted down to 3rd for no apparent reason and then it was in neutral and no power anymore.  Don't want to crawl underneath. Here is the start of school holidays and high traffic. Thanks, Hans
