  1. I was going to check the fluid level on my transmission and to top it off in case that was causing my hard shifting....I can shift with ease when the car is off...when the car is on I can hardly go in gear... so I check the filler area and I notice a second filler spot. i believe its for the fluid coupling.  Isn't the fluid coupling sharing the fluids from the engine??  I am not sure now... can you please help me figure it out...




  2. The Imperial web site has a M6 Technician's training pamphlet (actually 2) on their website in the repair section.  They might prove helpful in getting yours diagnosed and put back in order.   Remember you are dealing with a dual range transmission with 2 gear ratios in each range.  The transmission was meant to operate in the upper range (what you are calling 3rd) for normal daily driving.  Low range was for driving in sand snow or towing etc.  So when operating correctly you need the clutch to move the selector between ranges and using reverse, but in normal use, you would usually select the high ranges 2 gears. 


    Low gear in low range is really only needed if you decide to pull your house off its foundation.....


    this might help you out like Greg G mentioned.... http://www.imperialclub.com/Repair/Lit/Master/012B/cover.htm

  3. Did you do the door panels yourself?  Looks really nice.  What color are the window garnish going to be?


    I sent them out to be done. I cant imagine doing them myself! looks like alot of work! got a good deal on them. i just put them back on the car. They will come out one more time once the headliner goes back in later on this year. The window garnsih will be red along with the dash and mostly everything inside is red. the outside will be black shiny black. I will run it in primer until i finsh the modifications to the body. (im almost done...)

  4. I have not. i cut them on mine and did it wrong! :o so im gonna re-do as soon as I find another set of originals...since I am gonna chop them i was thinking of going with an easier to find parts model that might just fit easier than the originals...but I'm not sure yet. I'm still thinking about my options...

  5. Got my interior panels installed, working on my window sills, they are in primer and will be painted this week. That's as far as i am gonna do, to run the car until summer time, when I will get the custom headliner done, along with the carpet... so here it is! dont mind the window sills not done yet. they will be done soon!





  6. I don't know for absolute sure...but I think the voltage through the switch is irrelevant.  The switch is just that, a switch.  And the power coming into it...be it 6V or 12V makes no difference to the switch.  Hopefully someone with more knowledge then myself will chime in.


    I agree with you...thats 100% true. if he is gonna run the 6v motor with his 12v system He just needs a voltage reducer..
