  1. I guess we should be grateful at least folks are still around to help keep the old car hobby up and going. The poor quality parts certainly are a aggravating issue for sure. Requires extensive parts searching to over come that issue.
  2. Many of the people doing repairs/rebuilding of old cars and trucks parts and what not didn't start out working on them. Many do not know exactly how and what to do. Those people who did these older cars truck back in the day are old/retired or dead! Though there are some who know the right way around the old stuff.
  3. Good brake reliners can quickly adjust oversize band lining to required spec thickness using a spindle drum grinder. Most don't realize say .030" or a little more matters. .156" material was available by our Brake and Clutch Supply shop thru the 80's. If they have to.... they grind it to the required spec. thickness now.
  4. Just did one on a 47 Chrysler T&C ..told the reliner lining cannot be thicker than factory .156". Fits fine....shown is the shop that did the leaky seal and speedi-sleeve job not so good. Brake band got soaked with 10 weight oil. Same job as a 1946-48 DeSoto with the M-5 trans shown.
  5. That looks great! Well done. One step closer to driving down the freeway in a mad rush to a car fire๐Ÿ˜
  6. Very sad to hear this Paul. Take it one day at a time as you are doing. Try to keep a positive outlook and get better! It's good to see a post from you!๐Ÿ‘
  7. Took care of it....he wasn't too mean to me. Maybe he knows or was taught to be lenient and more tolerant with older folks.
  8. Thank you...I thought I read the OP's complete post. Guess not....I was in a rush to use the potty when I read it๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  9. Does the input shaft bearing have a shield on it facing the inside of trans?
  10. I cannot tell you if it will fit.. The radiators in boxes are 15 feet up on Costco style racks. I was there a couple months ago buying parts...saw tons and tons of old stock parts for all makes of cars. E-mail him to be sure it's correct and get the information and pictures of the radiator.
  11. Thats a old stock replacement radiator. Not a original factory one. I have seen his warehouse of parts and the some of the radiators in boxes three racks up.
  12. Always use a razor blade, box cutter, sharp knife or hose cutter to cut fuel hose.. Makes a straight debris free professional cut.๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Here is a cut open FD coupling... The fixed crankshaft half of the vanes is spun by the crankshaft spinning oil against the opposite output side of the vanes... thus causing that output side of vanes to spin which then turn the clutch and transmission.
  14. As for sealer needed...yes glass and body. Type and procedure....I'm not the person to give the proper advise.๐Ÿ˜
