  1. I'm familiar with worn clutches. No slip, no sign of oil around the disc. engine mounts are good. There's a quarter elliptic leaf spring under the trans, over to the frame to keep the engine from torquing sideways. Maybe that needs to be snugged up. Engagement point is adjustable of course. So what years/models/brands have the same clutch assembly and do the 6 and 8s use the same assembly, and where to get it for the best price and quality?
  2. I have a serious shudder taking off in first gear, so I assume the clutch needs to be replaced and the flywheel machined. Does anyone know the diameter of this clutch and what year range it fits? There are a couple sets on ebay with a 9.25" diameter. Is a 6cyl. different than an 8cyl?

  3. I have the split windshields out and apart for rechroming, and need to source new rubber. Around the frames and on the body in front of the dash panel, that the frames close onto. Steele or Metro moulded? Was the quality decent? The frame rubber comes by the foot and needs to be joined at the bottom of each frame with a superglued miter. Should I do that on the inside bottom corner or the outside bottom, or both? I'm thinking both. Thanks, John Walker
  4. NC industries had excellent repops of the bumper bolt bases and covers, so I'm good there. Still need a pair of uncracked chrome headlight rims/doors, or undented complete headlights. Windshield frames w/good chrome. (NC can make them in a pinch). Rebuilt water pump.
  5. FOR SALE: Lots of stainless, chromed steel and pot metal pieces from a '54 hemi wagon. Just trim pieces inside and out, no car body, no running gear or bumpers. Tailgate hinges, sliders, window crank, inside rear stainless strips, pot metal rear fender spears, 235HP tags, etc. John, Seattle, Wa, 206 789 6800 jwworkshopataoldottcomm
  6. Looking for two rear bumper bracket covers that the big attaching bolts go through, like in the picture. Front and rear are the same. Ignition switch/armored cable/coil assembly with a key Opening, split windshield frames with good/decent chrome Flex beam headlight retaining rings with no cracks, or nice complete headlights Rebuilt water pump.

  7. I welded the holes and redrilled. The new Bernbaum master cylinder I ordered has a very small reservoir section, so I had Hagen's sleeve the original one. Easier to bleed without constantly adding fluid every 4 pumps.
  8. Well, I dug around in the garage and found a 2bbl carter carb from a '48 buick super 248ci. I made an adapter and it runs great. Automatic choke, so no more choke and throttle cables needed.
