50 Custom being parted out. Says heís keeping the body but not the front clip:
https://nh.craigslist.org/pts/d/hudson ... es-custom/7157931051.html

Now that I just posted that, I see itís listed as totally for sale too here:
https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/hudson ... -custom-8/7161995001.html

Seems like an abandoned rat rod project that never actually started.

Alright, she locks! The u joints worked, though Iíd go a size up next time if Iíd do it over again to eliminate the corner filing. I went with my thought above around u joint placement, ie close to the tumbler assembly, and there were no issues and also room for error also if something goes wrong cutting/grinding.

Unfortunately one of my eBay door locks the tumbler just pulls out pending what way I turn it. It locks and holds tight so I just have to be careful about that when I unlock I guess. Another issue is my passenger side lock is very temperamental in general. The key doesnít seem to have the torque to lock it, and the rubber end is too shallow to allow the locking tab to go far enough down to lock the car. So I can get it to lock with pliers to reach below the wood grain trim, but it also takes convincing. Iíll have to open up the door again sometime I guess and maybe remove the whole lock assembly to see why itís not locking easily.

Any thoughts on u-joint placement before I start cutting? I was thinking basically as close as I can get it to the tumbler housing because that seems to be close to the intersection of a level rod and the straight through line of the tumbler housing.


This was a ďneed an extra handĒ type of picture but luckily the phone balanced in the upper door access.

Thanks Howard! I was about to get new ones but I think Iíll give that a try to see how it goes. Given itís a daily driver in the NE I also like the idea of avoiding pot metal joints and opting for something a bit stronger, at least for unseen door innards. Iíll report back about how it goes.

Great, that is very helpful! It seems like Iíll need to just buy a new kit with the joints and stepped down shaft.

Thanks a bunch!

So Iíve heard there might be small u-joints to install that rectify this issue? Can someone confirm this for me before I drop unnecessary $$ on another set of locks?

Finally got around to the locks, of course it didnít go as planned. First I realized that I needed to grind down the end of the new shank as mine was square up to the end. Once that was done, I thought it would just slide in but the angle of the tumbler is too severe for the shank to fit in the latch and the lock to sit flush. I may have to order another set of locks and keys because the eBay ones I have donít have enough angle.

Why wouldnít they just make the tumbler directly across from the latch?!?

Ok great, definitely something Iíll get to with some help and maybe a jack! Iíve assured itís the bumper, knocking it with the hand upward it makes clear contact. Something at some point happened on the passenger side of the car, likely it was swiped or ran along a wall, thereís some scraping along the trim and the front fender isnít quite straight. Luckily no other damage or serious issues but I bet thatís when the bumper got out of its place.

48-50 front bumper adjustment

Hello All,

My front bumper seems to be a bit crooked, the passenger side end makes contact with the fender when I hit a bump causing a loud bang in and out of the car. It was actually a relief discovering this was the sound and not a suspension part! In looking at the mounts and hardware there though, everything seems a bit solid and Iím not sure how to adjust it really (Bend things? Spacers/shims?). I also see pictures of other cars where itís similarly angled up, as if the lower part is smiling a bit, and other cars where itís angled down, as if the bumper is hanging from the middle. Is it an easy thing to adjust?

Thanks!
