I followed the procedure in shop manual the adjust clutch and got it adjusted. Need to fine tune a little crxause tranny wants to grind gears a little going to second and high but is much better. Interesting how it works to follow instructions!

I do have a 38/39 shop manual. Evidently I overlooked this procedure. It is straight forward. I will follow the instructions and post results.

Thanks

My 38 V12 Club Sedan’s clutch would not engage until it was almost all the way up, meaning it had about 1/4 inch free play. The clutch did not slip even with this small amount of free play. It should have an inch to one and a half inch free play. This car has vacuum assist clutch as well as vacuum assist power brakes. I loosened up the linkage to give it the proper free play and could not get it in gear. I thought the clutch disk was worn out so I had disk and pressure plate rebuilt by Surge, a reputable rebuilder in the Chicago area. Also had flywheel resurfaced and ordered new throw out bearing. My old throw out bearing was good and identical to new one, so used old one. After doing all of this and throwing $700.00 at it, i still have the same issue. The existing pressure plate had been welded on and broke in two pieces while being tested. Bought good core and had it rebuilt. The throw out bearing is against the pressure plate at all times which is not right. It is like the clutch rod is not moving far enough to completely release the clutch disk. The clutch fork is in the proper position is not bent and clutch disk is free on transmission splines. It does not appear the vacuum assist part is working. Is it possible the mechanical part of the linkage moves the pressure plate a certain distance and the vacuum assist part moves it the rest of the way? I am stumped. Anyone got any ideas?

I have had this radiator for over 4 years and tried to sell on
Ebay with no results. Decided to put it on forum to see if it will sell
I was going to use it in my 41 Packard Street Rod Convertible, but it wouldnt work with Fatman Subframe I used. Maybe I have it priced too low
Will make someone a very good radiator.

I have a Studie 4 Seasons roadster that had extensive pitting in the pot metal windshield frame. Kevin Klockman of Smitty’s replating Oshkosh
NE replated all the chrome on my roadster. His work is reasonable and of high quality. His phone is 308 722 4301.
I highly recommend him i have spent over $ 6400.00 with him and it was worth every penny
