  1. Yep. Gotta remove the ends.Probably easiest to remove the caps from the distributor side and pull the wires through.
  2. Hi John, I know that you are looking for a pair of original fender skirts but I figured I'd ask anyway. - in case you cannot find originals. Would you be interested in a pair of aftermarket skirts that I have for sale? They can be found on this link:https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/metal-reproduction-fender-skirts-overlay.1163436/ As noted on the box they will fit 42-48 Oldsmobile (except Series 98) Joe
  3. I am looking into buying a 1968 AMX and I would like to know what to look for as far as these cars go. I have ZERO knowledge about them so I need some sage advice. Thanks, Joe
  4. Nice bunch of cars. Annoying music......
  5. Hi Frank, I have a complete set of these support bars for your car in case you wanted spares. I also have the following for your car: NOS taillight lense - I would have to check which side. The 4 chrome strips that go below the taillights - very nice condition Some chrome stainless trim for the rear windows Tailgate window glass Backup light or lights - would need to check I may also have other stuff. I had a 1951 T & C wagon and I bought this stuff but have since sold the car. If you are interested in any of it let me know You can PM me. Joe
  6. Instructions on the bottle said "apply to a non conspicuous area to test the results" OOPS !!!!
  7. "Just what does the other lever do that doesn't shift anything and is quite loose?" That lever, as I stated in my previous post, is activated by the gear shift lever in the car. When going into reverse, the gear shift lever in the car is pulled TOWARDS you and then shifted up into reverse. When the shifter in the car is pulled towards you that activates or moves the other lever on the tranny. As far as your picture goes and what gear position you are in I cannot help you there. Probably best to move things around until you feel you are in neutral.
  8. From my own experience...... You should have the gears in NEUTRAL position when you reinstall the cover and the fork. (note: the levers on the housing should be pointing straight down when installed in the neutral position.) When I put mine back on I did not have the gears in neutral and the tranny would only go in reverse and bog down the engine. When I removed the cover again I made sure the gears were in neutral and reinstalled the cover - end of problem.
  9. When shifting into reverse the gear shifter in the car is pulled towards you and then up. What that pulling towards you does is activates the other shift lever on the transmission in order to engage/disengage reverse. Without actually looking under my car and seeing which direction the lever moves I don't want to speculate either towards the front or rear of the car - but it can only be 1 or the other. Maybe you need to simulate that movement on the lever(s).
  10. Update: I went in a different direction and did not purchase this car. I would have definitely bought it but something else (a different car) came along.
  11. The Woodie is now safely tucked away in its new home. It was loaded into an enclosed trailer on April 30th at 9 am and it was in my driveway on May 1st at 11:30 am. A little over 24 hours to transport a car over 1100 miles. I consider that fantastic. And the cost was extraordinarily reasonable. Anyway, I have been tinkering and I am going to drop the oil pan as there is about an inch or more of sludge (was going to do it anyway) in the pan and I am going to remove the side valve covers and clean that area up, too, before I even try to start the car. Also, clean the pickup screen, etc... I cleaned up the interior a bit and it is looking good. Having said all of that, I bought this car sight unseen (I know, I I know - should NEVER do that). But I couldn't get anyone to go look it over for me and I was 1100 miles away. But when the car was delivered I was more than pleased with my purchase.
  12. I am looking for a decent passenger side rocker panel molding for my 1949 Plymouth Woody. It is 80" long. Doesn't have to be show quality but should be nice. Thanks, Joe

  14. IF all goes according to plan the Plymouth should be in my possession this Thursday. IF all does not go according to plan it will be a few days later. I will keep everyone posted (if interested) Joe
