  1. Did you ever get an answer? I just bought one and was wondering the same thing .
  2. Leave tomorrow morning. Found out its a McDonough micro car/ go cart. Mostly sold in the midwest for farm transportation. As far as i found out there are s few different types.
  3. Worked at a dealership but also did a lot of lemon law cars. I was in the top 7 techs in the mid Atlantic district and top 5 in the Pittsburgh district. Also did some training on the dealer level.
  4. I finially made it back here after being away for 3 or four years. The reason being my wife was ill was for at least 15 years and the last 4 years she was really bad, and needed full time care. So i kinda lossed interest in hobby. She passed away in 2018. About 2 months ago i got the urge to get back to normal. I got my chrysler going once again, also bought a 1978 chrysler sport satellite boat and am restorin it. So now im back i retired after 47 years with chrysler, and finially enjoying every minuet.
  5. It is not a vinton. Did some quick research and it is either a auto red bug( i really dont think so( or its a McDonough buck board made in the 60.s
  6. I have the chance to buy a 1950's Vinton , im not sure exactly what this is i seen vintons at hershey but never payed much attention to them. The guy is asking 150.00 for it. But is saying its a go cart. Is thst what they were? I cant get a picture of it. It wont let me copy the the picture. I havent been on here for quite awhile but glad to be back.
  7. ELECTRICAL THEORY BY JOSEPH LUCAS Anyone who has dealt with British cars and Motorcycles (Lucas electrical systems) will appreciate this... ________________________________________ ELECTRICAL THEORY BY JOSEPH LUCAS Positive ground depends on proper circuit functioning, which is the transmission of negative ions by retention of the visible spectral manifestation known as "smoke". Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work. We know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical circuit, it stops working. This can be verified repeatedly through empirical
  8. Note: The following is a June-July, December 1999 and September 2004 of email messages on the IML on electroluminescent dash lighting problems and repairs: Anyone know who replaces the luminescent coating on the instruments? What shop rebuilds them? If you mean the coating on the once-red pointers, that can be done by the DIY'er. The tricky part is getting the gauges out of the dash (which you have to do to send them off to be rebuilt anyway....) All you need is a can of electroluminescent spray paint (also called "safety paint"), available at most home-improvement, hardware or hobby shops. U
  9. check out htpp://teamchicago.com/Imperial/imperial.htm i see they list the part numbers for the parts there is a ling on the page to the gauge section
  10. its called eletroluminescent lighting they still use it today. I did see someone the computer that did repair these clusters, but for the life of me i cant find it. we usually send them out to get repaired due to the complex nature of the system. My understanding is it works somewhat like a fluorescent lamp. The new ones today use pulse width modulation output to light them using computers. I will try to see if i can find any info for you.

  24. trying to find out what year of rear fenders will fit this car. The service manual is set up for 49-50-51, are the body styles the same? I know they look much the same, also i have seen a dodge of the same year the body look much the same but the rear fenders were missing. Having a hard time trying to find any parts for this car. Guess i better say what it is, 1951 desoto s-15 4dr sedan. Looking for a left rear fender.
  25. that was going to be my next question, as to what fenders will fit. I dont think 52 will work, slight body changes. as far as the coupe not sure but i dont see why not.
