  1. I believe if you peak under that spring steel tab you'll find they are riveted together. Technically I suppose you could take them apart but it's not really worth it
  2. Has Paul gone missing? Now that you mention it I haven't seen anything from him lately
  3. I had another round of IWOYTD. Finally got my cab out of the trailer. Was a series of lifting beams slightly lowering resetting and gradually getting closer and closer. Video of sliding the trailer out. Unfortunately my photographer aka neighbor only got the other neighbor helping me in the frame! I'm at the front of the trailer pulling it out. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/v172/dodgepu1946/VID_20220515_115526(1).mp4 Half way down into some stands. And finally basically on the ground.
  4. Window and track come out. It's been a while but I believe you remove the stop bolt and then crank it a little further down.
  5. The flathead could be had with a powerflite 2 spd automatic. I believe that same adapter will allow an early torqueflite to also bolt up. I'm not sure how current of a trans will attach though.
  6. Me too. 64 belvedere wagon with 318 poly and pushbutton auto
  7. Very likely as Chrysler was supplying Korean war items. Lots of little changes between 51 and 52. I've been working on them way too long even though I don't own one anymore. Started helping restore this one when I was about 10.
  8. 51s have plastic letters 52s the cast stamped in letters
  9. Does make me wonder why they had the complete no radio plate and then the one in the video with the speaker grill but the radio holes filled in.
  10. Do you want a picture of the burnt up coil or the dist cap with half the bottom lip missing??
  11. That sounds right. I think it's in the country by fountain city wi
  12. That redwing area is so great. For anyone coming to the area Elmer's toy and auto museum is a great site to see and apparently this is their last season. I heard late 2022 all the contents are being auctioned off.
  13. We're hosting our car club here next Saturday so today was my IWOYTD. Spent a couple hours trying to fix the 47. I was hoping to post a video of it running again. We got close but in the end didn't quite make it. Initially no spark was the coil. After a couple minutes of messing with it the coil was HOT. Swapped that out and still had irregular spark. The dist cap was missing about 1/2 the bottom lip so it wouldn't say seated properly even though it'd been running before with the same cap. I had 3 extra caps all for the other style dist!
  14. I got these from my local hardware store. They are a gas pilot light fitting for water heaters. I believe way back someone did post that McMaster has them too. For anyone trying to install one I recommend doing it outside of the vehicle where you can hold the nut on the back of the gauge while tightening this fitting. They require a fair amount of umph to set.
