  1. I didn't realize I was wasting peoples time on here. I was under the impression that forums were a place to share ideas and thoughts and ask and answer questions. When someone has asked me a question on here, I reply with an answer. I don't see it as my time being wasted. Why would someone even contribute to a topic if they thought their time was wasted? Not to worry Spinneyhill, I won't be wasting anybody's time on here anymore. Thanks to anyone who was willingly thoughtful enough to help me out and to spare some of their time.
  2. Not at all quite the contrary. Emails display documented verification of what someone said. It's valuable reference material down the road, perhaps years later when you can't quite remember exactly what the person said. Not only that but it's verifiable proof of what someone said. Point in fact. Just a few hours ago I was looking for a set of vehicle ramps. I called the local auto parts store and the guy said he had a pair for about $40 . I said I'd be right there. They were in fact $80 for the pair. When I mentioned about him saying that they were $40 for the pair. He simply said I don't remember saying that. It was no big deal I paid the $80 because that was about the market going price. He just made a simple mistake on the phone. My point being if were were using emails and the circumstances were difference, such as moving the decimal point a few times and 50% difference in the price would be huge. But no question about who said what.
  3. You caught my interest by indicating that the transmission won't shift with the kit in the image??? Please explain why Jon? I can't seem to figure out the connect between EXCELLENT, registered mail, and insurance ??? I've been getting things shipped to me by various means including USPS, and various curriers, either direct or through a customs broker. Not once has anyone insisted that it be registered and insurance was always put to me as an option.
  4. Thanks Jon. So my next question is where can I get that kit? Most of the kits are inclusive of a number of different models it seems. When I google carb kit cs-112, nothing comes up on the first page related to a carter carb. When I go to The carburatorshop.com, which is the source for coming up with that number as that link suggests, it looks like the website was created back in the late 90's and there is no place to actually narrow down the search to find cs-112 or to purchase it. You can't even email. Phone number only. Plus in order for them to ship to Canada the parcel has to registered mail and insured. There must be an easier way to get this kit? I don't see anything on ebay. I think I mentioned earlier that I got an available p/n from Napa for a carb kit with a picture. But I asked for a 1948 carter carb. Maybe if i just go back and ask for a 1946 carb kit I'll get lucky. Here is a picture printed out for me at Napa. Sorry for the poor quality but is it possible it might be the right kit?
  5. Ok guys, so according to that "Chrysler application and repair kits" page that carbking linked me to, I need a #112 carb kit. My carb model is EV1. According to that reference, it's a 1946 carb. Am I right?
  6. Thanks guys, This is all amazing information, I love it. Thanks to everyone for all the great pictures and illustrations. I can't wait to take this knowledge and apply it. I noticed that when I took the car for a test drive. I found that I really had to put the pedal to the medal and get the rev's quite high, when I was taking off in first gear in order for it to shift into the high range. Taking it up to what you might feel as a comfortable rmp for it to shift, just nothing would happen when I took my foot off the accelerator. Sounds like maybe that could be overcome by some adjustments to that mechanism or even carb issues. When I took off in 3rd gear low range, it was super sluggish and really wanted to stall out the engine. That may have been a carb issue since the car had been sitting so long, because if I feathered the gas pedal it did keep going after a few jerks. However once I got going in 3rd., shifting into the high range at that point was quite normal and a smooth transaction. I'm sure I'll figure it all out once I get a few miles under my belt. I'm going to change the engine oil, trans fluid and fluid drive fluid right away. I'm thinking maybe I should change the differential fluid while I'm at it. What would I use for differential fluid?
  7. Well how about that. Never too old to learn. After all theses decades I'd never heard of the velocity stack referred to as an air horn. Good to know. So if this Anti Stall mechanism or solenoid should fail, how would one determine that it was actually that particular thing that was causing the engine to stall. In other words is there a particular way to troubleshoot it? If it does fail can it be repaired or rebuilt ? Or can it be purchased as NOS ?
  8. Thanks Jim. I'll PM you. The part I really need is the small tubular piece that connects the flipper to the handle shaft.
  9. Regarding those inappropriate emblems on my car. I'm assuming there will be mounting holes in the front and rear fenders that hold the two "chrysler" nameplate and the 59 rear fender trim. Hopefully there will only be two holes for each totaling 8 holes and I'm guessing they will be somewhere between 1/8 and 3/16 " in diameter. I'm thinking my ultimate goal will be to have the holes tig welded closed, then find a painter magician to paint the area ( probably 4 in. circle or so) to blend into the rest of the paint. Until then, does anyone know of a plug that might fill that hole. Plastic probably and I could paint them red. I know it will still look weird but not as weird as those fender trim pieces. Even just leaving an open hole would probably look better.
  10. Thanks for the great pics c49er. I'm curious why the term "air horn" is used? How does that anti-stall control work?
  11. It appears that there is a limit for the number of messages I can send per day, which is quite strange. But it is what it is, so if you don't hear back from me the same day you post your message to me, than that's probably the reason. I really appreciate all the input and advice. You guys really know your stuff. Thanks to all.
  12. I don't have the car right in front of me and I won't have for a few more days. But I do have this picture of the carb and it sounds like from the location you described, to be the right place to look, but I don't see any stamped id # Jon. ??
  13. Thank you for that info 55er. I was scratching my head when keiser asked that question. The other oddity is the chrysler emblem on the side of the rear fenders. it's not supposed to be there. Although in the picture it's not really clear but even though it looks like an authentic emblem, the font style is slightly different. I'll take a better close up of the emblem so everyone can see soon. The letter r doesn't go up above the horizontal part of the r just before it sloops down to finish the letter. I'm applying for collector plate here in BC. They want lots of photos and they have lots of restrictions. There can't even be stone chips in the paint. According to the rules. But every 70 plus year old car has stone chips. Anyways I'm wondering if they will reject the collector plate application because of these two things. If I took them off they would refuse it because of the holes. You mentioned RCI. Do you mean RCI Upholstery in Belle Plaine MN ?
  14. You mentioned RCI. Do you mean RCI Upholstery in Belle Plaine MN ?
  15. What do you mean by saying "except for the electric switches" ? The car comes with a nice thick service manual, so I might try to clean out the carb and put a kit in it myself.
  16. Yes the prices of them on ebay are not cheap once I convert them to Canadian currency and add shipping and maybe even brokerage fee.
  17. Thanks for all that info christian. Interestingly the crank handles on the drivers side are the ones keiser linked to with the plastic inserts. But on the passenger side they are the solid metal ones a bit longer. In my research I've discovered a couple versions of that style Mine are one piece as opposed to the ones that look like they are split down the centre. Mine have a philips screw on the inside. But both of them seem to be in fine shape. However now that I've been told that the plastic ones are the correct ones I'd eventually like to get them all matching. My front floor carpet is in good enough shape to take a pattern off of it. Actually it just has a few worn spots and that horsehair backing is missing in a few places. If I can't track down one on line I might try to get some period correct material and make my own carpet. I have an awesome pfaff 145 sewing machine that I'm pretty handy with.
  18. Yes I went to my local napa store and they can bring in a carb kit overnight. But I've heard that there is more than one model of the carter B&B carb. Embossed on the side of the venturi is 6-431 They came up with a part number 25066A
  19. It actually snapped off internally. I'll try to take some close up pics of it. There is a tiny hole on the side and I'm wondering if I stick a sewing needle in the hole if it will release something and allow the plastic end to come out.
  20. Hi keith, I'm in Sidney BC. The window crank is the same as the ones that keiser posted pics of
