  1. One would think but they did not do it that way
  2. Not even getting a group number 8.124 in the Chevy Parts book from 1949....
  3. What is the first digit of the group number?
  4. Thanks so much, He found a rebuilder here in Ocala Florida that advertised they have been in business since 1953 owned by the same family at the same location. They also state that they rebuild convertors in house, so he is going over today to see if they might be of help. More to come There was an excessive amount of play in both bushings, we set up two dowels the same diameter of the transmission and WOW they were sloppy!
  5. The Cheaper unit, I am going over there later this afternoon The middle bushing seems pretty scored up Thanks
  6. I never played with one of these fluid drive units so help is appreciated. My friend has a 49 Dodge Wayfarer Convertible. He was getting a grinding noise and thought it was the transmission. After listening to it myself and several others as well we felt it was a clutch problem. We took out the transmission and then the torque convertor/flywheel assembly. the surface on the flywheel area needs to be cut with out a doubt! There appears to be two bushings in the torque convertor, one seems to be buried at least 6" down in the convertor. Has any of you ever removed these bushings? Are they available? I will have some pictures later today. Thanks
  7. Mine started falling apart at 40,000 miles. I sold it when the third transmission started to fail. Best looking car I ever bought new, but it became a money pit...
  8. Good Luck! In 1992 I worked at the Jacob Javits Convention Center and ended up purchasing a 1992 Roadmaster Wagon the same color as yours that was a show display vehicle. One thing I remember if the cruise control stops working check the third brake light in the gate window. There are some contacts that tend to get oxidized.
  9. Theatrical lighting uses what as known as "gels" to tint lighting, and they come in many colors
  10. That makes sense, Artie sold the business before that and at that time it was being run by a few young guys. I had problems as well. I hope the new people who purchased the business are not haunted by this.
  11. Actually there were five awards, but three of them were for a local guy in Ocala who could not attend the banquet.
