  5. It did work when i disassembled it about 5 years ago, I finally found a ring that wasent broken it is a full circule ring. all the plastic insulaters are there Havent gone out to look at it tonight the wife is in an uproar.
  6. I really feel like a dummy right now. The horn ring on my desoto is apart and trying to put it back together and cant figure it out it either blows all the time or not at all. I have all the parts but just cant get them in the right order. I put the triangler shaped part in first then a round concaved washer in next (dished side down) then a large toothed type spring teeth up then the fiber and metal ring on to which the ground wire connects to then the horn ring with three screws which go though plastic gromets when i tighten down the screws the horn ring goes down to far and grounds out the horn causing it to blow now if I dont tighten them up all the way then the ring is loose an slides one way or the other and still grounds out and blows. Not sure if I am putting if together right my service book does not show the horn ring. This thing is driving me up the wall I have put these together on other cars many times before in the past but just cant figuer this out.

  9. I work as an auto tech at a chrysler dealership in my area, well yeasterday the temp outside was a nice 18 below zero in aur area. My wife leaves for wirk at 6:30 am so i start her van since it set outside, well it barely started turning over slowly but starting, now this is a 2002 Dodge. I leave at 7:15, go out and start my 89 plymouth, no go justs turns over to slow to start. Now thinking of what to do, I can call the garage and they will sent someone to pick me up or........try my other car which hasent been started in at least 3weeks, well lets give it a shot. Now everyone is always giving me a hard time beause of this car which is not restored but in good shape for the year. Put the key in the ingition cross my fingers, turning over slowly at first the faster then it fires and runs. I let it warm up a few minuites and off I go. Getting to work i notice that only 2 other people are there, after picking up the others in the car they make fun of all the time, they now have respect for the old beast. The beast was the talk of the day with both workers and customers. The car .... a 6volt 1951 Desoto. Just wanted to share my pride in my old car.

  13. 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.

    Advice needed

    Phil<BR>You didnt say what engine you are working on, but I dont think i would pull the heads off the engine to remove the carbon unless you are having mechanical problem. An easy way to do this is to go to your area Chrysler dealer and purchase a can of Combustion Chamber Cleaner, (im sure other makes use the same stuff). You spray this down the carb when the engine is running to the point of almost stalling out them shut off the engine finish off the can into the intake let it set for awhile then restart the engine, it will smoke quite a bit untill all cleaned out. I have been working on cars for 25+ years and using this stuff and never had any problems using it as long as you follow the directions. Back in the 70's we had a problem with carbon knock on some AMC engines and that was the factory fix. Lately have had some engine missfires due to carbon build up on chrysler engines and that is the factory fix. I quess the best thing is to take all ideas you get and chose the one that you think is best. good luck
