49 keys

Could someone please tell me how the keys for a 1949 Deluxe are arranged. That is, are the doors and ignition keyed the same, and the trunk and glove box keyed the same, or all keyed alike? Thanks for your help.

If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

Thanks BDeb for the pictures. I thought the one I have might be the one with the lighted plastic wings. I also see that mine is missing the centre bar. Was considering selling it but who'd want it since it's broken? I'll likely make a base for it and use it for an ornament on the desk.

'49 Deluxe Speedo help please
Home away from home
Home away from home

Mark Hill
Hello all. My speedometer is making some funny sounds, some needle bounce and I have read about the oil hole at the back. I would also like to pull the cable and oil it up. Am I better to remove it from the transmission, pull it up and run oil in from that end, or can I remove it from the back of the speedometer and pull the cable out(thought there would be a clip holding gear on). I started at the transmission the other day, but I could not get it loose after removing the retaining clip. I was reluctant to put too much force on it so I put the clip back on and thought I'd ask. I have looked through the service manual and didn't see anything about it, but I also may have missed it. Thank you in advance for the assistance. This forum has been the best thing since sliced bread since I purchased the car. Many thanks to all participants.

Master clyinder is in and garage working. Weather is not nice so I haven't had it out for a drive. Don't expect any issues. I posted earlier about the boot not fitting the brake rod and was going to machine it. Before and after pictures are below. Where the red arrow points is where I put the groove. I used a parting tool and cut in about .040 and just wide enough for the shoulder of the boot to fit inside and lock in.

Thanks for the tips. I am well aware of the pitfalls of a single master cylinder brake system. This is an issue that has come up since I started driving it. I don't think that the gentleman I got the car from drove it very much, so as I start to use the car things are cropping up. When I rebuilt the master, after honing it, it got a good washing out, then a good rinse with brake fluid, and all the seal were wiped down with brake fluid before assembly. Brakes are never something you want to scrimp on.

OK, so if this guy identified some of this through the casting number, I should try the FE1134 part number on him and see what he comes up with. As I stated above, I have rebuilt my master, and seems to be good on the bench. I haven't got it installed yet because I am still a working stiff. I just wanted to see if I can get one, how available it might be, and cost. I would consider buying one just to put it on the shelf for a back up unit if it's not an outrageous price.

Called a brake rebuilder here locally and he crossed the Wagner FE1108 casting number and told me that the master cylinder number is F1131. He also stated that this was one that did not crossover in to the forklift industry as quite a few did.

Put the new parts in to the master, some oil and pumped it few times. Oil flows nicely out all ports. No drips other that the one operating the push rod. I don't like the way the boot fits the rod. It doesn't seal at all so I'm going to machine the shoulder a bit and put a groove in it like the one on the master so when the boot is installed it will seal at the master end and around the rod. The old one was full of crap. I will post before and after pictures with an explanation
