  3. Lead body filler how dare you !!! I did lube it and it did get worse and I now also use a stick to hold it up . Thanks for the reply.
  4. The hood of my New Yorker has lost the will to to stay up easily and has crashed down violently a couple of times ! There does not appear to be any way I can adjust it. Does anyone have an idea?
  5. I reinstalled the reconditioned water pump on my 49 New Yorker and now the fan makes a clicking noise ie its catching on the flywheel or something . Is there an adjustment I can make ?
  6. The UK is adopting a European Union rule of introducing 10% of bio ethanol in gasoline by 2013. I am aware that ethanol has been used in fuel in the US for some time. I would be interested to know what precautions I should take with my New Yorker based upon the experience of you folks in the US.
  7. I had exactly the same problem with my New Yorker . I ended up getting a Sykes Pickavant model 08250500 hub puller. This is a 5 leg puller that you bolt on to the drum with the wheel nuts. You need to be careful not to damage the thread on the end of the axle shaft - I placed a flat piece of metal between this and the point of the puller screw. You still need heat though. I used a butane gas blow torch used for paint stripping. The last thing you need is a fairly heavy hammer - a sledge hammer if possible. It's probably one of the most frustrating jobs on an old chrysler, but its very satisfy
  8. Thanks for that. I now know that the capacity of the old one wasn't high enough which explains some of the starting problems I've had !
  9. I need to get a new 6v battery for my 49 New Yorker. Would anyone know the correct Ah rating for a battery for this car? :confused:
  10. I'm not sure if its any different from my 49, but my manual indicates that you remove the bezel, unplug the clock and then just undo the 3 nuts holding the clock onto the dash. I've never attempted this but I have removed my radio a couple of times and found that the only way to do it is to lay on your back in the footwell and get serious back and neck-pain as a result! A clock should be much easier though ?
  11. Thanks , but length of 25 1/8" surely cannot be right ? I would think 12" more likely .
  12. Would anyone know what the correct length of the brake linings should be on the rear shoes of my 49 New Yorker ( C46 )? Also should they be grooved down the centre ? my manual doesn't indicate this but a set one side is !
  13. Thanks everyone for the information - that's exactly what I wanted.
  14. Would anyone know exactly what the licence plate on my New Yorker would have looked like when it was first sold in 1949 ? The outlet selling it was in Louisa Virginia, but it was bought by someone living in Montpellier VA. I know the registration was CUT 591. Would it have had that on or CUT-591 ? What colour would the plate background and the numbering have been? Would the plate carry the year, if so where on the plate would this have been ? I would like this info so that I can get some show plates made as near as possible to the originals
