NO REVERSE!!!

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone could help me please. My 1956 Patrician push button ultramatic was working fine and then i went to go into reverse and nothing. If i put it into drive, no problem, but sometimes if i put it into neutral it wants to go forward and if i put it into reverse it wants to go forward (sometimes) but if i put it in park, then netural, then reverse nothing. I hear the actuator selecting/clicking but nothing. I tried the trick with the jumper wire to drive to align it back up, nothing, i tried it for reverse as well and i had nothing for any gear, so i redid the pink wire and it was back to how it was, minus the reverse.

My thoughts are that the worm drive or selector has over hunted and now can not reach reverse. Is there a way to fix this without having to pull everything apart? Or am i completely off the mark?

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the delay in replying!!!

It was in fact the rotor button that had caused the issue. I have ordered the part and it is ready to install.

Thanks for all your help.

I dropped the tank, there was a small hole in the top of it where it kinked or hit something, probably when the new fuel sender unit was installed. Anyways i tank welded it with the putty and it doesn't leak anymore.

Good work! Typically the seam on the tank doesn't leak but if there is a leak elsewhere above it, it can run down onto it and seem to be leaking from there.

Hi Brain Trust,

I got my Patrician up and running and took her out for her first outing, she did well. Came home, parked in the driveway, took the daily out for a bit, then came back to do a swap around and the Patrician wouldn't start. I have looked at the fuel its getting to the carbie, there is power getting to the coil, but the ballast resister is getting quite hot, which I think maybe is the issue, but wanted confirmation. Or if there is something else wrong, idk. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Don,

I've "welded" the seam with kneading weld and it still seems to be leaking, not as much as it was, so i may just have to pull the tank out and see whats going on, which wouldnt be so bad as im not getting any fuel level readings on the gauge on the dash. Two birds one stone sorta thing, lol

Hi All

So after a bit more fiddling on the old girl, I have decided to consult the professionals on the wiring, there are wires and such going here there and everywhere, to relays, to nothing. If anyone knows anything about wiring, wiring diagrams, please let me know. I have a button i have no clue, its under the dash near the torsion leveling switch, the other long one i figured out that was the milage reset.

I also have a huge hole in one of the mufflers and the begining of a small one in the other, hope to have those fixed up when shes running.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the long submarine looking thing in the left front guard is and what its used for? Very weird I havent seen it in any diagrams.

Otherwise still waiting on the carbie and the cleaning fairy to arrive.

Hey Peeps,

So far i have changed the oil, it was black as black. drained the radiator and put water in it (only temp till i get her going and do a proper flush), re installed the brakes and did a bled of the brakes after filling the master cylinder (what a pain in the butt spot) filled the power steering fluid resivor, the front doors where not shutting properly, so thats been fixed, the front windscreen was not installed properly, so as a tempory fix to stop the water leaking in (its currently winter here) its been siliconed until i can get a new rubber seal for it. I've replaced the battery and installed a battery holder. While under the car bleeding the brakes i have noticed that there is a hole in the muffler and the fuel tank seeps at the seam. That will be fixed today. The eletrical system is being fickle, replaced some globes and fuses, some things work, some dont, so investigating that. Waiting on the manifold bolts to be made so i can install the carbie and get her running, hopefully that will be in the next day or two. She still needs a good clean, which im going to get a detailer in to do (i am not going to spend hours polishing all the chrome lol) And I've named her Penelope, hahaha.

Hi All,

Today is an exciting day!!! After 6 months from purchasing this beauty in January, she has finally made her way to Australia and has now arrived and is in my driveway. I can not wait to start cleaning her up and getting her driveable and taking her to be shown off.

Hi All,

Just an Update on the '56 Patrician I purchased back at the start of the year. It has finally been shipped, after much delay, and is making its way to Australia. ETA is 13th June 2023. Whoop Whoop. Then travel arrangements need to be made for it to get from one side of the country to another, this is currently in progress.
