    Oil or Hydraulic Fluid

    If you don't have a low gear position, you have an M-6 transmission.

    Grinding Gears or Clashing

    If you can move the shift lever out and down from neutral, you have a three speed transmission.

    We and the Windsor 2018

    It's not likely that the shaft moved. That would mean the throttle platea had come loose from the shaft. More likely the lever is loose on the end of the shaft.

    Distributor shaft to engine block gasket?

    Not having new cork gasket to replace the broken one on my distributor, I got a large O ring at the big box store. I thought it was important because I frequently hose down the motor with water and I don't want it leaking into the crankcase. Yes, it will seep oil out if there's no gasket. Use the cork one pictured.

    Clutch Pedal is on the floor

    That's what mercury feels like when you shake it. Think of it as a liquid steel ball.

    GL1 80-90 wt. Since 1994, no problems.

    Coupe won't start.

    Did you put a tiny dab of grease on the point arm so it doesn't wear down and close the gap?

    Speedometer registers fast

    Autocorrect makes you say things you didn't nintendo.

    Acceleration at High Speeds 48' Windsor HELP

    With the engine off, have an assistant press the accelerator to the floor while you look down the carb throat to see if the throttle plate is actually opening all the way. Linkage is adjustable.

    Fluid Drive Stalling

    The shot of gas has to start at the first movement of the throttle plate.

    Artistic or to much time on their hands?

    That's really clever. Artists see things much better than I.

    Rack and pinion steering for 46 Plymouth

    Stopped or moving at a slow speed, the steering wheel is harder to turn, but driving is much easier. Tread width problem? Dunno.

    Rear brakes broke? Fittment issues on '48 Dodge

    If it's only 1/16" or so, you could just file the notch in the shoe web a bit deeper.

    There's a hole in that theory.
