  1. You all have been able to point me in the right direction before so I am hoping you can again. I a looking for a driveline u-joint for a '48 Chrysler Windsor. I have been looking and calling and driving myself crazy. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, I have found a couple place for upholstry, door panels , etc. But does anyone have recommendations? It's expensive work and I want to make sure the money is well spent. Thanks for your help.
  2. Yes, It shift's just fine when you do it right. Still a lot of tinkering to do. Any idea where to get door molding and floor mats and upolstery? Like I said lots of little things to make this a really nice car. Thanks for everything so far!
  3. Yes, about 5 to 10 years. I did check the tranny level and it was OK and look clean. I'll try your shifting idea, I've never driven one of these. Try tomorrow rebuilding carb tonight due to leaking. Thanks for all your help and I'll tell you what I find out tomorrow.
  4. I'm working on a 48' Windsor. I would like to find a shop manual that covers this car. The main problem right now is the tranny doesn't shift up, do to solenoid wiring not being hooked up at all in the engine compartment. Can anyone help with a schematic or explanation of where they are and go. Thank You.
  5. Thanks! This is a great start. I really apreciate the help. This place is great for those of us who don't do this all the time. Thanks again and I am sure I will have more questions as we go along.
  6. Wow! thanks for the fast and thorough answer! We had found the tires at Coker but didn't know which one was standard. For the upholstery. What I was wondering is if there is any place that makes repros of the "seat covers", that they did originally, that I can put on myself? Or door panels that I can install myself. That sort of thing. For the other info: i know for some vehicles there are restoration books that describe exactly what the car was like as it was produced. So we get all the right chrome, colors etc. I haven't such a book or information for this car as of yet.....
