    1949 Plymouth Super Deluxe 4dr Sedan Parts

    I was wondering what that bolt was for thank you Well got it out what a struggle everything came out OK except the water sensor tube which broke off in the head that sucker was almost welded I did everything possible but it broke. Darn radio must go 20# or so and all it does is hum might work if I pulled the tubes and cleaned everything up. Gauge pods are OK except where the daen gasket got soft over the years and leaked out around the edges.

    Problem is I can barely get the panel out far enough to let one hand in and on the horizontal I was able to get the speedo loose by a sawing movement with a finger, it just does not seem right that the panel with the gauges does not come out further than what it does even with the oil tube and temp tube. Well if push comes to shove I can always bring out the polish heat wrench

    1949 Plymouth Super Deluxe 4dr Sedan Parts

    Hey Andy Yup I removed the windscreen moulding and the 6 screws that fasten the dash to the body, I also removed two screws one on each side that are just under the dash that hold the dash to the A-Pillar. I was able to just get my fingers behind the cluster to remove speedo cable and I disconnected the temp and oil line, steering column and hood release also have to remove the heater cables. From the firewall side there were 4 bolts that I removed. There has to be a bracket holding the radio heater to something.

    I think in my area it would be to hard to sell as one piece, I have a 49 Chrysler 4dr on craigslist and have had no bites and the car runs and drives I am about 60 miles NE of Minneapolis and I really thought it would go but I might have to drop the price I am asking 3500 for it. There is no clock. EDIT, How bad does a chrome diecast have to be before it is just junk, The back emblem/trunk release on this car is really pitted.

    this car has a lot of surface rust and the only item that is gone to the iron dust in the sky is the floor pan, I am at present attempting to get the door handles and locks off but the slidy things that hold it all together do not want to give it up. The big hunk of diecast on the trunk is quite pitted and I have no idea as to what the chromers can do. I also have a good back window, all wings are in good shape except the driver wing has been sold. The hood is nice and straight nobody has jumped on it. The dash is complete but for the life of me I cannot find what is holding it together, removed all the screws across the windscreen and the screws on each A-pillar. I do not think it has a clock.
  8. I have a 49 Plymouth Special Deluxe 4dr Sedan that I am removing some parts to sell, I am wondering what on this car would you save before the crusher gets it.

    Clutch Pedal is on the floor

    Back to the clutch, I am not sure what I did or did not do, after I reinstalled the throw out bearing and adjusted the fork travel I ran out of threads on the adjustment I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem ? ?

    Hey Dodgeb4ya The picture with the starters to be more specific the one in the middle and looking at the top two studs the one on the right does that go to the ARM on the regulator and the small stud to the right goes to the ign switch. The bottom two terminals does the one on the right go to the auto chock while the post on the right goes to the neg batt terminal - Batt terminal on the horn relay and also a wire for the AMP meter. As I mentioned before the wires are of no color only thing I have is the size of the wires and while messing around I now have no ign. Thank you

    Thank you for the location of the brake switch. How do I get the dash apart to get at the ign switch and also the headlight switch?
