  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!
  13. A friend received his letter today that his cars didn't win.
  14. I installed the transmission in the 1948 Chrysler Windsor today. Was harder than I expected but it is now in place.
  15. Sorry to hear that. Nothing goes easy in 2020!
  16. On Wednesday and Thursday I got to use the antique 1956 Willys Jeep. Did a good job plowing 11" of snow. And it was running on 3 cylinders, bad sparkplug.
  17. Sweet, between the parts diagrams and the pictures I should be able to figure it out! Thanks so much. I wish a club that I will not mention would offer support like this without always wanting me to join their club... Puts a bad taste in my mouth. Again, thanks for the help Terry and C49er.
  18. Today I was able to get the engine in the Chrysler Windsor today. I rented a engine hoist and got some extra hands to ease the install. It is alot heavier than the Crosley engine... Does anyone know what that Chrysler Windsor 6 cylinder engine with bell housing and torque converter and clutch would weigh? It is now setting in the chassis and waiting on all the extras to be installed.
  19. Now I am working on getting the engine and transmission in and looking at all the shift levers and brackets and I think I am missing some. Can someone show me the linkage for the shifter? I have the shop manual but the pictures are terrible! Reprint... Am I missing something on the end of the linkage that is in the picture below that would mount to the bell housing? What is the metal plate with two holes and a few notches in it, the clean piece on the table??? I wish I would have bought a parts manual...
  20. One of the Farm O Road ready to take on a load of leaves!
  21. Yes, I agree 100% with Wayne. Looks original to me. (Not a license plate expert either)
  22. If it has a starter solenoid, check to see if you are getting power to the small terminal when you turn the key to the start position. If not I would suspect the wiring or the ignition switch. If you have power to the solenoid then I would suspect the solenoid or the starter. You could run 12 volts directly to the main connection of the starter. I am not familiar with Cushman scooters, so this may be way off.
