Re: REPLACING THE 6 VOLT GENERATOR ON MY 52 DELUXE 200

I found my picture. It looks like the 4th wire is a ground that goes the condenser retaining screw.

I forgot to say that it is a Delco-Remy generator.

REPLACING THE 6 VOLT GENERATOR ON MY 52 DELUXE 200

I am putting the engine back together and can't find the picture that I took of the generator wiring. It seems pretty simple. 1 large red wire, 1 large black wire those are color coded. there is only 1 place the condenser wire can go-same as the black wire. I have 1 wire left. I believe it goes to t...

Re: Looking for upholstery in N. VA, Maryland area

Hi Todd. I am getting ready to do the upholstery on my 52 Deluxe 200 4 dr sedan. It needs everything-headliner, seat covers, door panels, and carpet since I can't find the rubber mats to fit. Can you make these from measurements, or do you have to have the car there? Please let me know. Thanks, Trac...

Re: Splash guards for 1952 Deluxe 200

I ended up making them out of some very plain black rubber floor mats. They look pretty good and very flexible. The inside of the fenders on my 52 Deluxe 200 are just painted the same color as the body along with the inner fenders. Did they ever undercoat these? They are undercoated on my 56 Dodge. ...

Splash guards for 1952 Deluxe 200

I am detailing the engine compartment of my 52 Deluxe 200. The splash guards are made of a canvas like material that came apart in my hands. After 65 years I guess that is to be expected. I didn't see replacements available from Max Merritt or Kanters. I was thinking of just getting some canvas and ...

Re: 288 engine rebuild.or refreshening

I just finished the tranny service. What a difference! David is correct when he said that the Ultramatics are like no other automatic tranny. Howard said that the "slipping" is probably normal. Both of these seem to be true. I drained the transmission and torque convertor, and pulled the pan. The sc...

Re: 288 engine rebuild.or refreshening

i am not worried about a lifter noise. The smoking has diminished quite a bit. It may just need to be driven. I have ordered a seal kit for the tranny. I will drain the fluid and clean the screen and make the necessary adjustments. The seal kit should be here sometime this week. It would be great if...
