I was jazzed to find a NOS window crank for my '54 Chrysler T&C wagon project. It seems that Chrysler used a round swaged retainer to keep the crank attached to the base, (there are 2 indentations that lock it in place) but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to remove it without destroying it. Because there were so few of these wagons made, I'm not thinking the replacement retainer is even available. I've marked the base in white - a red arrow points to the retainer and there is a spring washer is underneath. Suggestions?
I have a 1951 B3B undergoing a full frame off original restoration. Does anyone know of a structural diagram that shows types and dimensions of all the correct structural members that comprise the bed? I need to find out how the bed sides, bed front panel, bed wood, and all underlying structural members were bolted (or welded) together. I also want to find out what the exact dimensions of the underlying structural cross members and sides members were that hold the floor boards, side panels, and front panel together into one unit. I guess I'm the kind of guy who likes originality and doesn't like to slap things together because it's cheap or easy.
