  1. Some cars had the dash lights on the same fuse as the tail lights. If your dash lights didn't work it alerted you to the fact that your tail lights weren't working.
  2. Mine does the same - even if I pass a bicycle.
  3. Can I use a 12 volt battery pack to jump start a six volt positive ground vehicle?
  4. I once installed a pair of Hush Thrush on a Z28 - 2 1/2" pipes. Started the car and blew the end off one the the mufflers!
  5. 51 DeSoto with original wheels - P225/75R15 - Radials
  6. 51 DeSoto Custom Deluxe two door has rubber in the front and carpet in the back.
  7. I don't know how they actually stapled through the steel. Most of the staples had pulled through and tore slots in the rubber. The staples are still in the steel. I pop riveted the rubber back on using the staples to align the rubber.
  8. 51 DeSoto has a continuous metal piece from side to side and then the rubber gasket stapled to the steel.
  9. straight 30 - non detergent
  10. We drive the 51 DeSoto to church on Sunday to honor the old lady who did the same!
  11. How to I remove the seats to take them to get upholstered? 1951 DeSoto Custom - two door
  12. I am working on the tip toe transmission in a 1951 DeSoto. Where can I get a new wiring harness?
  13. I use straight 30W non detergent in 1951 Desoto
  14. Took my driver's test in Dad's 1950 DeSoto. Cop asked me how long I'd been driving already!
  15. got one from YNZ - looks great. Tip Toe transmission is a DeSoto thing. Two speed transmission with high and low range (= four speed). Low range is seldom used. Usually you drive with the high range. Once in gear you don't need to use the clutch. Press the gas and go, when you are at about 20 mph let up on the gas and it shifts into high. When you come to a stop sign you only have to use the brake, even when you're stopped. When the light changes - repeat
