  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?  Thanks, John Walker seattle, 206 789 6800 jwworkshop ataoldotcom

  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. 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

  5. Looking for two rear bumper bracket covers that the big attaching bolts go through, like in the picture. Front and rear are the same.

  6. Bernbaum's says they never saw a front cylinder with this bolt spacing. Who else might have new wheel cylinders? The pictures show the clean, new Bernbaum cylinder in the backing plate , compared to the original and bolt spacing measurements from both. Any leads appreciated. It's possible I can just move the bolt holes in the backing plate and use the new ones, but I'd rather not. 







  7. No key for my '33 Chrysler. The ignition is "protected" by a metal flex tube. I need to get the tumblers or the whole ignition switch out to cut a key. Got 5 blanks of the zig-zag key to play with. Any ideas on how to get it out? Is the door key the same as the ignition? Anyone out there with '33 Chrysler knowledge? Thanks, John Walker Seattle, Wa, 206 789 6800  jwworkshop ataoldotcom


  8. Who can I get the 6 bolt flange rear axle seals from? Bernbaum didn't have them. There are also a few other pieces in the seal area like a felt ring, a stepped metal spacer and a plastic, stepped spacer. Who has a good source for '33 parts in general? Any leads appreciated. Thanks, John Walker, seattle, wa, 206 789 6800 Jwworkshop@aol.com
