  1. Quickest way to to if the generator is working is to start the car then remove a bat cable if it stops your generator isn't working .I will stand corrected if that isn't true .I had this same problem with my rebuilt generator ,did what you did drove it like that the whole summer just kept charging the battery .Eventually cleaned all contacts tore the generator apart again found oil cleaned it all repolerized the gen.and away it went.

    My new 54

    Love your posts the step by step reminds me of the restoration of my car in the 80s. I looked up the 54s love the looks of the hardtops .
  3. It just wouldn't look the same.
  4. Sniper you mentioned the ring between the breather and carb I found fruit jar rings made by Viceroy to be a perfect fit.
  5. Not sure if this will help ,there should be an O ring between carb and breather I use the Viceroy rubber fruit jar rings fit perfectly. maybe they will keep any rust out.

    mirrors

    Well my 48 original mirror was rectangular it had a red reflector on the back of it. couldn't find any similar. I now have two chrome clip on mirrors ,it took a while to get the mirrors adjusted properly but I am happy with them.
  7. Thanks Andy I will Try all those things and let you know. well I did as you instructed when i took the pressure of with the jack lifting the lower control arm I did get grease in it was coming out around the cup on both sides .And yes they are loads of fun ,thanks to the people of this forum I am able to do some of the work myself Thanks again
  8. Thanks Andy I will Try all those things and let you know.
  9. I also have an issue with the passenger side upper control arm bushing .My problem is that I have a hard time getting grease to go in I changed fittings same problem. Someone told me to take the fitting out and put in transmission fluid to try and clean out the old grease let it sit and then blow it out with compressed air then repeat until the grease goes in . Will this work?
  10. Well I thought I would give an update on the brake issue . It is its still doing the same thing grabbing until I apply the brakes a few times and then its fine . I disassembled everything and checked again for leaks and sure enough found brake fluid on the pipe between the two wheel cylinders tightened the threads cleaned everything with brake cleaner and put it all back together . I will test drive the vehicle and make sure that it is no longer leaking but I imagine I will be looking at new front shoes. Thanks again to everyone who helped me .
  11. Hi Sam I was under the dash trying to locate the dash light bulb as mine is also dim .Be damed if I could locate it . I am sure its accessible without too much trouble any help would be appreciated . My car is a D 25 same dash as aP15.
  12. Just a little update So I made Sams tool and checked the shoes and according to the tool my shoes are fine .Marked the shoes with a sharpie as Don suggested and went for a spin applying the brakes on numerous occasions and the sharpie marks are all gone .Also no pulling at any time . It will have to remain a mystery.
  13. This is the cupping I was referring to .Already sanded shoes and drum noticed uneven wear pattern so will try adjusting again Sam my shoes also came from Bernbaums I am impressed with your home made adjuster.I am going to print your picture and attempt to make one
