  1. Gents, I do Not want to sound high falooting, however, there is a section in your service manual on how to adjust your fuel gauge at your dash board. Bending the float Rod sounds like the right thing, but the Service Manual addresses this issue in a completely different manner. Jus sayin, I cant barely read. Livin in NC takes away my abilities to do such. L.O.L. Tom
  2. A 250.6 cu. in. Spitfire calls for between .007 - .015 Ring Gap. Always reference your Service Manual. All other information is heresay. Service Manuals pay for themselves immediately in cases like this. Good Luck! Tom
  3. Chrysler1941, The above carpet from East Orange is only one piece. One for the entire front and one for the entire back. It is also loop carpet not hogs hair. Save your Carpet for patterns. One will have to sew the configuration you refer to above. I know of but 1 extant Company in Newark New Jersey (Bill Hirsch) that sells the hogs hair carpet and piping one can sew to the proper fit. That one will either be you, or someone you pay to do the job. Good Luck. Tom
  4. Cold Blue, I believe this Thread started with a Carpet referral request. When you go on ebay and type in 1948 Chrysler Plymouth Carpet from East Orange New Jersey you will see a listing with colors for your car. I believe its about $175 for a sedan. These people have been in business for over 45 years and seem to have the right stuff that fits. I have not bought from them but they have excellent feedback. I have heard guys up there speak highly of them. I would think they have been doing something right to stay in business that long. I have lived here (NC) for 39 years and remember hearing good things in the 70's about them as I am originally from East Orange and have owned 1948 Chrysler's since the early 70's. Good Luck! Tom
  5. Adjust Clutch first. That is most likely the problem. Then drop back and punt if and only if need be.
  6. It should go to yellow around 40 then red around 50. There is a prism in the unit that does this.
  7. Great Job! You must have that young energy working for you! Tom
  8. Is your 10WT Non-Detergent Oil full in the Tranny? Is your Tranny Screen Clean? Have you checked all your Electrical Wires and Connections? Also is the Fuse in your Tranny Selenoid good? Just a small check list before a full on trouble shoot from the manual Tom
  9. Amen Frank, Bleed them brakes two or three times around after checking for leaks at Wheel Cylinders. You should have a pedal by then or then maybe its the MC
  10. Andy Bernbaum 315 Franklin Street, Newton, MA, 1-617-244-1118 or go on line
  11. Looks like a new 13-33241 will do it. They didn't list ebay but they sell them on there as well
  12. There is also a plate at the back of the Trans down bottom in the back. It holds a filter cylinder in it. At some point remove and clean. insert back into the trans and I believe a small gasket will need to be made to seal the plate cover back into place. An easy gasket make with scissors or an exacto knife. I believe the "Fill with 10 WT Oil Tab is attached at the base of the Governor on the passengers side of the Transmission, whereas the plate for the filter is the backside lower driver's side of the transmission. Have a happy, fun, safe road trip! Tom
  13. Kanter in Booten New Jersey sell them too.
  14. Also I think you just spin the whole Long Rod once the TR End Bolts are loose not one side at a time. Go talk to a Front End Guy they are friendly Chaps when you catch them early on a Saturday Morning at opening. Bring a box of Dohnuts L.O.L.
