1953 Plymouth Cranbrook front Shocks and clutch

Recommended Posts

Got my survivor Cranbrook home yesterday and before she goes on the road need to address a couple things like tires, suspensions, etc.   First I need a source for not "over the top in price" front shocks. 150 for a pair seems steep.  Second is a clutch question. It engages REALLY high up on the pedal. Shifts fine though. Am I looking at needing to do a clutch soon or is this a rod adjustment?  Two owner car and not driven much in the past 8 years.   s-l1600.jpg

Get a shop manual in print or CD and adjust the clutch.   Should be your first purchase as you will use it continually.   Some owners preferred them high, some low.   Adjust where you like it and it shifts easily.    Join a forum like  http://p15-d24.com/forum/4-p15-d24-forum

   and ask for a modern interchange for inexpensive but very good gas shocks.  

 

Enjoy the ride.

My experience is that a clutch that grabs near the top is nearly worn out.  The advice to try adjusting it is good.  Do that first.
