  1. Hi everyone, I just bought my first old car this weekend and so far so good, but I'm trying to learn as much as possible before I have problems. I picked up a 1949 Dodge Wayfarer Business Coupe with the fluid drive trans and flathead 6. I Don't know much about these old Dodge's but I'm dying to learn. Looking forward to everyone's input! From reading some posts I noticed that everyone is recommending 30W or 20/50 in the motor and 10wtND for the fluid drive trans. Any disagreements there? Does anyone know where I can get a repair manual for the car? Wiring Diagrams? Thanks everyone! Steve
  2. What is the optimal warm engine idle speed for a 1948 6 cylinder Chrysler with fluid drive and the hydraulic transmission? I was having trouble with the transmission not wanting to shift until I was going faster than the factory recommendations of 12-14 MPH. I was having to get up to 25-30 MPH in high range (and sometimes trying more than once) before it up-shifted. When I last drove it, it would not up-shift at all. Someone suggested it might be as simple as the idle speed. I can go through the factory service recommendations for up-shifting problems when I get a free day, and it mentions RPMs, but without giving the proper setting. I want to address the idle speed issue before I check the electrical.
  3. I took my car 1950 Chrysler Windsor with fluid drive) in for service to fix leaks in the oil pan and pump, plus transmission seal. Never had a problem with the tranny but they tell me now there is no reverse. Any input would be appreciated. I'll pass along advice to the mechanics. Thanks.
  4. I just purchased as '48 Traveler. It's pristine, original and hasn't run for a number of years. IT appears to me that the Fluid drive hose that attaches to the fixture between the engine and the radiator and has been sealed off. It appears to me that they've disengaged the 'fluid' part of the Fluid Drive and were running the vehicle that way. Is that possible? What are the dangers? How do I lubricate for that? Anyone help me with this? Thanks for your time. Tom.
