1948 Chrysler Windsor problems in General Discussion Posted September 19, 2018 · Edited September 19, 2018 by hchris Reword (see edit history) The clicking noise just prior to stalling could well be the generator control relay dropping in and out as the revs fall off, from memory this is mounted on the engine bay bulkhead which acts as a sound board. Popping through the manifold and lack of compression in #6 would probably be a burnt valve, you could get lucky with adjustment. Sounds like you need a copy of the wiring system for the electrical stuff, cars of this era aren't all that complicated, get a copy and blow it up and trace the various circuits. Some of your symptoms sound like poor earthing, the dip switch probably has some crusty or loose connections. Gas guage coulld just be bad earth on the sender unit at the tank, or pull it and clean the wiper arm.
