  1. Btw. At the risk of wondering off topic for only a moment, what is that protrusion just behind that shield. I've been looking at that on my engine wondering what it's purpose is?
  2. As I was saying it looks like I'd probably end up with the glass replacement fuel pump if I can't find a rebuild kit for mine. In that case it looks like it's a simple matter of replacing one of the screws with the long post from my carb, and attaching a home made shield similar to the one in this picture. Thanks
  3. Thanks Terry, I just went to their site and I didn't see my carb or a kit for it. but I'll give them a call.
  4. whoops,,, I meant to type MO-539 for the number on the casting.
  5. Looks like it's a Carter MO-532. In the one image you can see a long stud replacing one of the screws that hold the two bodies together. I'm assuming the heat shield was attached to that at one time. In the image that shows the diaphragm you can see that the mounting holes are offset so to say. I'll see if I can just get a rebuilt kit first. There is a number on the metal part of the diaphragm M203-16s Perhaps that's a clue regarding a rebuilt kit. None of the local parts stores have anything so it looks like I'll have to try Andy Bernbaum. Their P/N seems to be P-104. But no pictur
  6. Thanks Terry. Good to know about the make and model. In the 2015 posting here, the fellow said the part # was 683 056. The local parts stores don't have it so I'm going to pull it off where the car sits and perhaps I can get a rebuilt kit for it. My mechanic said those holes were designed to pop and spit fuel when the fuel pump is faulty. He suspects that the diaphragm has deteriorated from ethanol gas over the years.
  7. My fuel pump just started leaking out of one or both of the nostril shaped holes on the side of the fuel pump as shown in the image in the mirror. I'm wondering is this a fixable problem or will the pump need replacing? I read in a 2015 posting here that a fellow ordered one but he got a glass bowl style from Andy Bernbaum. As you can see in the image mine is not that style. So I don't understand about the heat shield he made reference to? Is he referring to the fact that the upper body is steel, that being the heat shield? Or is there an actual shield. I don't see a shield on mine, but
  8. ohhhhhh, ok good to know. Thanks. So is first gear towards and down on the shift lever? Mine being away and up.
  9. I was just reading over some old threads on fluid drive and your comment has me scratching my head c49er. I don't understand how one would start out in 2nd? I can start out by putting the shift lever in first ( low range) in my 48 Chrysler and wait for it to shift into second. Or I can start out by putting the shift lever in third (high range) and wait for it to shift into 4th.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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 reg
  14. 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?
  15. 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 adjustment
  16. 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 ?
  17. Thanks Jim. I'll PM you. The part I really need is the small tubular piece that connects the flipper to the handle shaft.
  18. 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. Plast
  19. Thanks for the great pics c49er. I'm curious why the term "air horn" is used? How does that anti-stall control work?
  20. 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.
  21. 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. ??
  22. 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 hav
