    JOY! First Drive

    Knuckle, she was actually surprised how easy it turned when moving, the brakes- now that's a different story. She squealed a little bit (and I don't mean the tires) when she went to stop. I told her to just stand on it! Thanks all. Tom B

    JOY! First Drive

    My oldest daughter made it home for Christmas. On a run into town she decided she wanted to try out the old whale. She was pretty proud of herself as was I. Mechanical things tend to petrify her. Made my day!

    A Good Day

    Here's a pic or two. Don't look too closely, its a driver! The interior was redone back in the 80's. Although not original, I believe its similar to original. Recently saw a 47 with the same upholstery only with moth holes in it.

    A Good Day

    Thanks. No jump seats. As you can probably guess, it was the only Mopar there. Lots of comments and questions from people

    A Good Day

    Didn't have anything going on today so decided to run in to a small car show - about 50 cars. The Old Whale got into the Top 10. Heck, I was happy they didn't make me remove it from the lot! About 75 mile round trip. No issues. Celebrated with a pint at a local brewery on the way home.

    1952 Coronet Transmission Question

    Hey fellow Kansan, welcome to the forum. I'm over here in Rossville. I had the same problem with my fluid drive. From what I understand these trannys are pretty bullet proof. Make sure the engine rpms are around 450 or so at idle or it won't shift. But the Gyromatic might be different. Someone will be along with more experience. Might check out this link http://www.imperialclub.com/Repair/Transmission/index.htm Tom B

    Voltage Regulator

    I had the same symptoms. Had the guy that rebuilt my generator check it out. Reg was bad. Replaced and gauge reads steady now. Got mine from The Brillman Company.

    48 Chrysler Fuel Sender

    Thanks. Kinda makes sense. I believe I remember the previous owner saying he got both a new tank and sender from above company. No wonder it doesn't work.

    48 Chrysler Fuel Sender

    I'm not that experienced with trouble shooting electrical stuff. I have a two wire sender on the tank. I have continuity between the center post and the flange, side post and about everywhere on the sender. Seems like the center post should be isolated. Just need to know if that's correct or if a new fuel sender is next step. Gauge shows empty. Have power to the power wire at the sender for the center post. I read some trouble shooting info somewhere on here but can't find it again. I see Tanks Inc. have a sender for early mopars for $35. 73 ohms empty, 10 ohms full. Anyone used one of these.?? It would be nice to look at the fuel gauge instead of watching mileage. Thanks TB
  12. Nice! It always feels great when they fire up when leaving the show and you make it back home. Did the same this weekend on a 70 mi. round trip. All was good when I pulled back in the shop, even with the 90 degree heat.

    Cowl vent dismanteling?

    I just replaced mine. By loosening the screws I was able to raise the cowl vent on my Chrysler to get enough clearance to squeeze in some weather strip adhesive and slip it in. Put the screws back in, closed the vent to keep is pressed down into the groove. Still staying down nicely

    48 Windsor Hood to Radiator Seal

    Well, I went ahead and engineered one, be it right or wrong. I really don't see much need for it. There isn't much space between the hood and radiator anyway. I used "door sweep" rubber. Its fairly pliable. We'll see how it holds up to the heat. I'll give it a shot since I'm not out much. Max, thanks for the tip on a source. Tom B
