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.
