General Discussion / Windshield wipper assy.
« Last post by chetbrz on September 04, 2017, 11:57:04 AM »

Whenever I finish this car it will have to go through a one time inspection and before I can get a Delaware registration the car will have to have a working windshield wiper.  I have collect possible solutions over the years but I am not sure if any of them will work OK.  I have two Trico motors used on phantom cars which had exterior mounts.   Neither work so before I waste time and money I was wondering if anyone has a solution to the wiper assembly issue.  I was told the one I had on the car couldn't be fixed ?? I am not even sure if it is correct for the car ??

Any advise would be appreciated.

John,

I bought one of these around 2006 and had the same issue.  I just figured it was my car that was the issue (or the installer).  You are right the gear shift cover fit no problem.

I guess the steering wheel hole is 1/2" to close to the top of the mate.  If it was cut lower the peddles might have fit better.  Mine was also off side to side which is probably my car. 

If I get another one of these I think I will make a template and align it to the new mat before I cut any holes or I'll just use my old one.

General Discussion / Steering column floor plate
« Last post by 29UJohn on September 03, 2017, 09:47:18 PM »
I purchased a steering colum floor plate and a gear shift floor plate from Steel Rubber. The gear shift floor plate fit perfectly.  However, the steering column floor plate had to be modified to fit my car. I had to raise the two slots for the pedals about 1/2 inch. I filled in the lower portion by glueing patches on the back.  These are expensive high quality products.  But not sure why the steering column cover did not fit. I wish I had kept the original one, but it was in awful shape.

When I rewired my car I went down to the next gauge on all the wires.  In recent years I have installed all LED lights, except for the headlights.  I did add a 10 gauge ground wire from the headlights to the battery.  I have considered adding a relay to the headlights, but have not had any problems. It might be good for the Culm switch though.

Hi Guys,
Just 2 cents worth disguard if you wish ,
I would install ( and have on a couple of cars) a relay/s (with a new fused B+ wire from the generator/alternator or battery) to both filaments of the globe (if used) on the side of the car with the longer headlight wires.
Relay/s can be fitted/inserted any wher eafter each headlight has its own wires (maybe near radiator) .
The switch and harness were designed to have a ~6+A load when new , with the new lights (~8A) & relay upgrade this will drop switch and loom/wiring load to ~4+A and give better voltage to both headlamps . Should you ever encounter a hick-up with the relay and/or connections you still have one headlight, and the chance of switch or switch wiring failure is reduced.
Regards,
     Des.

Here is a picture of mine.  This is a 29 4Dr Sedan.  It is more curved than the picture you posted.



Maybe it's a Chrysler Model 50 or 60 ???

PS Thanks for the info on the headlamps.

Ok, then it is not from a 1930 30U roadster with rear-mounted tire, for whatever that's worth.
