  1. I found a bracket in the trunk for the air cleaner and it has the spring attaching point on it. Installed and working!
  2. Yesterday I worked on the 1948 Chrysler to try and get it running. The owners are away and I don't have the ignition key so I removed some of the wires I had connected and jumped the starter solenoid and coil. After lots of adjustments and tries the engine came to life for the first time in a long time. Sounds good. Blew alot of rust and nut shells out the exhaust. Now to get the radiator in.
  3. Sent out my Hershey renewal last week and yesterday got a phone call from the Hershey Region telling me that my renewal had been received. But they just didn't call me to tell me that it had arrived, my wife had inadvertently tore out two checks, the one for the space and a blank one. They called to ask what they should do with the blank check! LOL So I know that the renewal has arrived. Thank you Hershey Region for the call.
  4. Trying to get the throttle linkage connected to the carburetor and hook up the return spring, but can't seem to find out where it hooks on the head or ???
  5. What was the guys email, I just received a message with the same MO, 0 record, in Mississippi, all the usual crap. Reported it and Peter sent him a private message to call him. Peter told him that until he calls him he will consider him a spammer.
  6. I know that I can just put the wires on to match where the rotor is. I was trying to decide if someone had the distributor out and put it back in a different location, my rotor is pointing in about the same direction as keithb7, but the clips and ears on the distributor are different than mine.
  7. One more question on the Chrysler. Where should the distributor rotor be pointing for number 1 cylinder?
  8. C49ER, I had a heck of a time getting that counter balance spring(heavy spring on clutch shaft) on. I finally removed the lower bolt on the bracket and rotated it, but I couldn't get the bolt to start threading back in so I put it back in and took the top bolt out and rotated the bracket and was able to get it threaded back in and tightened. Then I looked at your pictures and can see slight scratches on the frame from said bracket rotating to install the spring as I had done. Pictures are worth a thousand words! Thanks again for the help!!
  9. Quick question, where does the spring for the E-brake attach? From the E-brake lever to the floor stiffener on the body? Seems kind of a funny angle but looks right???
  10. I want to personally thank the officers, staff, and regions of the AACA for a wonderful job this year. They have done a remarkable job dealing with the pandemic. It was a hard year on all of us but they worked tirelessly for us. Many car shows and tours had to be cancelled because of the Virus, but they kept up, working with regions and chapters to try and make something happen for us. The Grand Nationals trials and tribulations would have been enough to make even the strongest of us to fall under all the pressure and changes that had to be made. But they succeeded in pulling it off! Her
  11. Finally got to mounting the First Place award. Looks pretty good.
  12. Merry Christmas to all my AACA friends! Hope Santa brought you all the car parts you wanted and more!
