I can see the forward nut on the left K member but I still have not been able to get a socket on it. I did remove the lower bolts and nuts on the K member. I will try to remove the trans and engine with the upper portion of the K member still bolted in ( I don't think I can reach it anyhow. However it looks like I will have to remove the rear shift fork so it clears the upper part of the K member.

1941 engine and transmission removal

I have a 41 120 which I am trying to remove the engine and
transmission as a unit. The front motor mounts are easy, it is the mounts on the transmission which I need help with.
I removed the snubber and disconnected the drive shaft. I removed the shift linkage from side of the master cylinder,
and took off the horizontal shift rods. Can someone please tell me what has to be removed from the back of the transmission where it is attached to the frame?
Thanks in advance

If you live anywhere near Chicago there is a fabric store at 2121 W 21 St. which sells odd lots of fabric. I did my 51 300 for about $100.00. It's 30,000 sq. ft on three floors and you have to go through the bins on your own and drag it downstairs. Beutiful 52" wide grey broadcloth for the seats 7.00 sq. yd. headliner beautiful ratsfur velur-
whole bolt 5 yrds, 8.00( not a yard, for the whole bolt.
and they have leather at very reasonable prices. Not a nice naborhood, not open on Saturday ( sabath). Wonderful find

I have a 41 120 which needs to have the steering wheel
refurbished. I am thinking of filling the cracks with
bondo, painting and clear coating. Good idea? I am having a difficult time removing the 3/4" nut in the middle of the steering wheel. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Casey Rog

I acquired a 1941 120, I am in the process of removing the square knobs on the dashboard. Can someone please instruct me as to the correct procedure for removing the knobs without the little cut-out at the bottom of the knob. I do not want to damage the knobs since they are very brittle and extremely expensive to replace. Thanks in advance

Sold my 51 300 and just purchased a rusted out 1941 120.
Are the 1940 and 1941 120 rear fenders interchangable?

Thanks Don,
I checked the output of the generator and regulator which I also bought on e-bay as a rebuilt and "sealed" replacement.
It was putting out 7 volts, but only 7 to 8 amps at medium speed. I replaced this unit with the unit that came with the car and am getting 7.5 to 8 volts and 8.4 to 9.4 amps at medium speed.
I will not replace the generator, but keep checking the output on the existing.
Thanks again,
Casey Rog

alternator wiring.
Hello,
I purchased a one wire 6 volt alternator on e-bay along with the voltage regulator. However I have no clue how to wire it to my 1951 300. The regualtor has terminals marked: bat, fld, and arm. Your help would be appreciated since my 300 runs fine except after I drive it and the it sits for a couple of hours, the starter cranks slowly.
Thanks,
Casey Rog

Tim,
How much higher should the fluid level in the transmission read on the dip stick when the engine is cold?
I'm considering cutting a door in the floor above the the
dip stick so I can check the fluid level easily without jacking up the car.
thanks,
Casey
