Re: Fuel pump for 22nd and 23rd eights

It appears I have a 53-54 clipper fuel pump. I wonder what issue there would be in song it on a 48-50 288. It was on a 49 288 so I am supposing it worked.

Fuel pump for 22nd and 23rd eights

Hi, On 22nd and 23rd series Eights we’re there fuel pumps made by AC and Carter? I purchased some used parts and, off a 23rd series parts car, there was a Carter mechanical fuel pump on it. Is this a factory, or OE, pump? I have photos attached of the Carter fuel pump. Also, are these reliable pumps...

Re: How to replace antenna grommet, 1948

I forgot to reply. Yes, the diagram was very accurate. I replaced the seal on my 1948, which was subsequently damaged quite badly in a garage fire and totaled, and I just did it on my new 1950. One thing though: The clip holding the wire was gotten to from the outside, not inside of the car. The Ste...

22nd series. How replace tail pipe?

I replaced the down pipe (nos!) and muffler. How in the world can you replace the tail pipe in one piece? It seems a dumb question but I cannot see how to do it without dropping the right hand rear suspension.

Many Thanks,
Sid

Re: 1948 clutch pedal will not return from floor

Yes, there was slip in the linkage. I feel silly not catching it.

Now I have to find a wavy washer for the transmission arm to the linkage. Modern ones seem to be thicker.

I do appreciate the help.

Re: 1948 clutch pedal will not return from floor

I saw no retaining clips on the pressure plate.

There is no pedal return spring on my model, 22nd series, 288 with 3 speed, no overdrive.

The pedal is connected to the throwout fork.

1948 clutch pedal will not return from floor

I have replaced the clutch assembly in my Deluxe Sedan. I was finishing up tonight and lo and behold the pedal goes down and does not return up! What can be up?

I would appreciate any help.

Re: Flywheel lock plate. 22nd series

I have some 16 gage cold rolled steel. That should work.

Flywheel lock plate. 22nd series

I took the flywheel off my 1949 Deluxe to get it surfaced. The lock plates, the pieces of metal that get the ends bent up to hold the flywheel bolts in place, got damaged. There are three of them. They are 19 ga stainless. What have others done to find them? What did you make them out of? A photo of...
