    47 Plymouth won't shift into 3rd gear

    John Reddie, I agree that does look like a choke stove. I'm not very familiar with the Canadian models and options as I have lived in the middle of America my whole life.

    47 Plymouth won't shift into 3rd gear

    Jayfire, Is this a Canadian car? The reason I ask is I see it says Spitfire on the head, which would be a Chrysler head, that would make it a 25" long block. The American cars were 23" long, so somebody may have switched the engine and that may be causing the shifting problems if not properly lined up. Just thinking out loud.

    Will worn shackle bushings cause clutch chatter?

    Mine has done it since my dad bought it in the late 70's. I'm going to follow along and see what we can learn together.

    Looking SWEET. What kind of insulation did you use above the headliner?

    NAPA Signal Flasher

    I tried a little diplomacy. Let's see how far this gets. This is what I sent to their technical department. It has come to my attention from several members on different antique auto forums that the pilot terminal of a NAPA 535 signal flasher does not work. From what i have read they are having trouble with the middle post losing connection. I am not sure if it is burning out which could indicate a too small of wire gauge being used. Or if it is losing connection due to faulty soldering or crimping. This is a six volt flasher which needs to be able to carry twice the amperage of a twelve volt flasher. Your cooperation in fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated by many people who enjoy these antique cars.

    Has anyone alerted NAPA of the problem? That would at least give them the opportunity to correct it for future purposes because NOS won't last forever.

    47 Plymouth won't shift into 3rd gear

    Not going into 3rd gear could be a few different things. Shift rod adjustment, worn shift rod bushing, worn or broken down engine/transmission mounts and possible obstruction somewhere along the linkage to the transmission. Good call on the wiring harness, let us know how it goes. Plymouthy Adams pretty much summed up about speed and handling. As always show us some pictures of your project. Good luck and have fun with your project.

    1953 Suburban with a V8

    You could shoot some clear coat on it to give a little shine and have bumpers and hood ornament chrome powder coated. That wouldn't be too terribly expensive and it would give it back some of it's nostalgia. It's just got 2 doors so that helps a little in some peoples eyes. I'm not a '53 fan so I'm probably not the best person to comment on this. I hope he finds a happy home for it though.

    Oh, what to do? AND Are these wheels stock?

    I'm not a wagon guy but this one has a cool factor to it. My wife would probably love it, she's always looking at old wagons when we're out and about. Good luck on your project and keep the pictures coming. How's the seats, door panels, headliner and floor boards?

    New to me 1947 WD-21

    Jomani, By watching your video it looks like you have some room at the front of the fan and back of the engine. There is only 2" difference in length so I would think you could find some fudge room to move the radiator forward if you needed extra clearance. Without seeing you mounts and how they're arranged it is difficult to be sure but I'm guessing there's room.
