Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Steve on October 31, 2010, 02:16:07 PM




























I hope I'll be able to post pictures every week for the winter.
 
Decided to call her the Blue Diamond.  Why?  Because the car is going blue and it's a diamond in the rough.
 
Got the front back off, did some nit blasting on the rough spots of rust.  Washed it all down with my whiches brew and letting it dry.  Tomorrow, I'll blow some rust converter on it , then prime and paint the fire wall.  Have to get the inner fenders ready too.  Haven't decided how I am going to handle the front fenders yet.  I have to get all that paint off, or at least smooth before I color them up too.  There are olaces where the paint is coming off.  It's hard to tell how the car was prepped.  The black should probably all come off.  I just need a way to do it quickly, short of dipping

Yeah. . .It was in the other tent on the hand truck with the Cylinder heads. . .   Figure that one out.
 
At least I have something to keep me occupied all winter now.  Plenty of work to do.
 
I looked at it this morning and it looks good after painting it with rust converter.  ready for primer

AFTER rust converter(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/attachments/5/62day2-1.jpg)
 
Next it will be masked off and primed.  May be painted by the weekend.  I might be able to get the inners done too.  The left one needs to be degreased first. 
 
This car is going to be an easy one.  The H will be just as easy if not easier

beauty is always in teh eye of the beholder, but I'll take that '61-2 Chrysler over the Plymouth or Dodge next to it any day.
 
I think 1960-1962 are the worst years for American automotive design for all brands.  There are a few highlights, but most are butt-ugly.
 
I do LOVE the '60 Chryslers and learned where one is in the Bake just last Saturday.  It's a 2-door HT New Yorker - gotta go by and find out what's up!  We saw it on the way home from Fall FLing where a Buddy told me about it.  There's a '62 NY wagon in the same tow lot.

I liked the 60's.  But I'm not into those damned fins.  So the plucked chicken gives me the best of all worlds.  The slant headlights, the unique grill, and you have to admit, the tail lights were unique too.  The profile looks clean and simple.
 
To ablib on Snotty. . .The 60 to 62 Chrysler were the best looking cars of the era, next to the Dorf Galaxy

BTW,ever thought of heating the bubble with a salamander or other heating source??
It wont take much to get her up to temp to aid the paint drying process.
 
Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Steve on November 07, 2010, 04:45:39 PM
Yeah Lea, heat has been discussed. . Problem is for painting, I'd need allot of heat.  To get that, I need forced air.  That would stir up allot of dust.  So I heat the car with the halogens, paint small areas at a time, and leave the halogens.  I am thinking of getting a couple of those vanity light bars, mounting them on a stand and filling them with heat lamp bulbs.Since there is a lack of room, I have to prep  big parts outside, 
 
The Hood will be next, then I can mount that.  Then the front fenders will be stripped and primed,  and I can edge them, hange them and paint them on the car.  I can strip the doors on the car, not the best way, but it can be done.  So I do is in little chunks at a time.  I plan on finishing the front completely and then taking the hood off again to do the motor.
 
By the way, I'm priming the car, then over coating with a god heavy filler primer, 320 that and get a glass finish.  That is if I can keep the dirt out.
 
I have a plan Stan

Heh
 
Between yesterday and today I managed to get the inside of the hood done.  Saturday, I hope, to put it back on the car.  That will get it out of the way and one more big piece prepped.
 
Well this morning, I checked the weather and it was to be in the 60's today and clear through tomorrow.  So I painted.  While I was painting, the sky started to cloud up.  I checked the weather again. . . RAIN!  I got some help just in time, but not before it got several dozen tiny drops on it.  But it's going to survive, I laid another coat on it after drying it out.  Looks like glass again.
 
(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/attachments/5/62day16-1.jpg)
 
This is an interesting spot.  When the chimps working on the car removed he hood, they broke all 4 bolts.  Then they tried to repair them, but drilled them off center taking the molded nut off the inside.  I ground the bolts down and drilled the whole area out with a 9/16 drill.  Then I took a 3/4 drill and counter sunk the hole.  I used 5/16 nits that are like washer head bolt, only solid and welded them in, penetrating down into the inner support piece.  Ground it down and whal-la.

This was taked right after it was painted.  still wet.

I didn't waste too much time on the center of the hood because it's getting a hood pad.  FACTORY PAINT JOB (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

This weekend I'm stripping the trim pieces off the front fenders, sanding and edging and getting them ready to mount.  I'll be fixing up the heater box too. 
 
I got my weather stripping and window track.  So the doors being edged will be the following project.  I keep going like this and I'll be putting the glass in by Christmas.  The goal is to have it completely painted to the rear quarters and assembled by spring.  Then I can focus on the engine and trans.  I have to turn the car around to finish the rear.

It's a 62 Chrysler Blue.  DD1  It looks real good in the Nasson 2K Poly.  Changes color in different light.  I'm thinking a nice set of wheels with white walls will do just right.  1" white is period correct, but maybe a wider white.  That color, the white roof and a good looking set of wheels and WOW

Good idea on the hood bolts repair.
When you have 36 square feet of sheetmetal to prep and paint,it is best to pieces one at a time.
Any mistakes can be fixed with ease compared to a 6 foot run in the paint,IMO.

The bad news for today is I bent the hood.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
 
It seems the hinges were siezed and with very little effort, the hood bent.  I can save it, and I think I already have, but the hinges are toast.  My buddy and I worked on the hinges for an hour after that, ducking a hinge spring in the process.  But they are bent now too.  The rust just poured out when we hit them with some PB.  I am so upset.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gif)

The good part of the day is I have the left front fender into prime already.  Found this black paint comes off faster by hand than with the DA Sander.  120 Grit does better than 60, but clogs too fast on the sander.  Guess I'll be working my arms.

 The Blue with the white top should have a very nice pop to it in the sun, I would go with a wider white wall IMHO

You bring up Donkey while I watch Schrek 2.  LOL
 
I got the hood fixed.  I just came in from it.  It needs a dot, literally of Bondo on the hood now after beating it flat.  I put a slight ding in it with a bolck of wood.  But the edge is nice and straight. 
 
I have to wait for a new set of hinges now.  I'll put the hinges on one at a time with the hood in place this time.  The good thing is it looks like the hood is in perfect alignment.  Nice straight line along the cowel and it's flat.  Other than some paint damage under the hood, it will be fine.  It's hiding the paint damage that will be a PITA.
 
I hadn't oiled the hinges yet because of the painting still in progress.  I didn't want any oil for obvious reasons.
 
Irronically, the hinges are working good now.  I wonder if I can get the spring back on the one hinge. . . . .

Chris  AZBLACK!  I have a question for you on the hood support.  This is for the education of all of us.
 
I have the hood all straightened and the kinks pretty much invisable in the support.  What I am concerned about is it kinking again since it's weakened in that spot.
 
Do you suggest reinforcing that spot with some additional metal?  I was thinking of making and forming in a saddle and welding it in with some spot welds in the center.  I think you know what I mean.
 
This hood has been a problem since I started on it

Steve, Since it's been kinked and straightened it will certainly has been weakened. As long as the hinges stay in good operating condition you shouldn't have a problem but somrwhere down the line they are bound to stiffien up so reinforcement is a good idea. Now would be better than later after it's all painted. I would say just make sure you bridge across the entire kinked area .

Yeah.  .that was the plan.  Do it now.  Since you are the resident pro, I figured I'd get a second opinion.
 
Ironically  One of the nuts I welded in popped out on the other side.  Didn't kink the hood though.  I realized I only got partial penetration on that nut I welded in.  It only hit on half the nut.  The key to those nuts are they need to be attached to the reinforcement behind the the sheetmetal
 
Thanks Chris!

Snotty   I forgot about that damage on the front fender, I got it all straightened out.  Miminal amount of plastic.  Other than that, I want my money back!  You said the car was never hit.  I found BONDO in the front fender and one of the body pieces in the front was a different color!  You fraud. . . (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)
 
Wow!  Did not know that.  All I can say is, whoever did the work must have been very good!  That fender was very straight!
 
But, with the damage under the rear fender this news does not surprise me.  I find it rare to get hit in one place and have no other damage on a car.
 
Sorry about the hood.  I'm still pissed that original hood springs and mounts were not there.

I got on the reinforcing right away so I can finish repairing the hood.  I welded strips on the inside and outside sides,  While doing this, a crack  appeared right where the kink was.  (Yellow circle)  I welded the crack and over laid another strip of metal and built it up so the depression in the support is now straight and built up about 1/8".  I have some flexible filler for plastic bumpers, so I am going to fill it and smooth it with that.  I put a brace on the other side too, but only on the inside.  It's not kinked there.

I have this friend that is into all the really old rusty stuff from around the farmlands where I used to live up in Washington, guy was great with coathangers and tin cans for small repairs, but anyhoooo, see if this is something you are willing to do and willing to take the time to do it. There are actually two ways to beef this up properly, depending on the amount of work you are willing to put into her as a finished product. One is to remove an end of the bent location (it is a boxed bent metal box as support and strength in design), but by cutting the front or rear of this box off and slip a minimum U channel into the area and then reweld the box, grind her down, good to go. A little time is needed to get the U channel in there so it gives support against as much as possible and not shift around (like a tack weld in a couple spots to hold it), then refit the cut access and grind/fill it and good to go. It could be done so the hood bolts actually go through this channel to change the stress location also.
 
If this is too much, the next one is pretty good, too. Take a slice going aft to forward on the inside of the hood box, picture 21:17 (love military time, wife always asks me what time it is), make it as long as you can, say 10-12 inches at least.  Drill spot weld holes on the opposite side, picture 20:34 top, not bottom, so it will have strength on both sides. Slip a formed piece of .085ish thick flat metal into the slice and reweld both sides. For added strength, do another slice along the bottom side between the two sides and slip another little something in there and weld it, too.  It's a lot of work, but it won't bend a second time.
 
Right now I wouldn't trust it at all, been there and done that with the TR-4 hood, still have to rebuild that spot.

Post by: Steve on November 22, 2010, 06:25:11 PM
Good points.
 
I don't think the pictures are doing it justice.
 
I made some of these.  Made sure I didn't grind the metal itself, and plugged and welded the parimeter.  Now it's almost like one piece of metal.  I understand what you are saying and even looked at that when I was dealing with the poorly drilled nuts.  Attaching the nuts to the inside support was the trick, and key to the bolting strength.  I thought about slitting one end somewhere and drilling a series of holes in the frame,  Then sliding my piece in and spot welding it through the holes.  But!  If you look at the shape of the frame, there is a bend in the original contour of the hood support frame.  Right where that bend is, is where it kinked.  In order to span the kink, I would have to dismantle the whole hood.  Not a good option.  Trust me Ed,  It will never kink there again.  I tried to bend it there already and it's not moving.

The only bad thing out of all this is I have to repaint the inside of the hood.  But I will be taking the inners out first when I get the new hinges.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
 
I had to mess with the shape of the hood some more and now I have a bigger dent there.  It's not much, but ehough that I wish I could pull out, but not enough to fuss over.  I think I will just fill it.  Before I hang the front fender on that side, I will get the repainting done, under the hood, align the hood and fender properly, then finish off the filler work with the fender on.  I was going to pre-paint the fenders before hanging them.  They're going to have to sit outside for a few days while I get the brake hoses on and finish the inners on the fender side.
 
See?  I have a plan.  Whether it's a good one or not, time will tell. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

I made that strip before Ed suggested it.  It beat making the saddle, which I ended up making a partial anyway.
 
Finish this touch up, several layers of filler primer, 320 grit, paint and you'd hardly even know.  I'll probably forget it's there.  Damn. . . I rust proofed the channels.  I have to redo that I guess.

Aaah.the joys of driveway restorations..
Good recovery on the hood--even though it cost you a few days progress.
If your shop is not heated, condensation will build up much quicker in your compressor and lines can become a problem no matter how many filters and driers you have.
 
I had my compressor freeze on me once and popped the fuse.
Once it thawed and remained in the heated portion of my shop,it was fine.
Being in an unheated environment,it built up moisture much faster than normal.
 
I would suggest draining your tank before doing any painting
Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Steve on November 28, 2010, 04:09:56 PM
Gee Lea. . Thanks for the compressed air lesson 101.  LOL

The garage is heated.  And it is a common practice to bring in cold air from outside.



What causes the water is running the compressor hot, it compressed the humidity.  As the air travels through the hose, it WILL discharge water unless you pre-dry the air.  Pre-drying the air is done either with refrigeration or desecants. 

In my case, I drain the tanks daily, drain the separators, and in this case, used an inline oil/water separator.  I have no idea how it happened other than maybe the water was trapped in the hose.  How that much got through is a mystery  As long as it wasn't on the hood, I'm happy

Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: azblackhemi on November 29, 2010, 05:03:49 AM
The trick is to cool the air before it goes through the drier. I use a coil of copper tubing that I put in a 5 gallon bucket full of cold water. This way the air is cooled and all the condensing is done before it hits the drier.

You can get some "smoothie" or other form of "fisheye" remover at any body shop supply place. Not only does it remove fisheyes,it causes the paint to run out a little better after you lay it on the panel. I've got one of those huge decatent driers in the garage as i spray lots and it is sure nice to have.
It's lookin' good steve.

Post by: Steve on November 29, 2010, 08:13:49 PM
I have all that too Glen.  It's so cold out it refrigerates the air lower than the dew point in the desiccants.  This was grease in the filter on the gun.  It absorbers oil and moisture right before the trigger.  Like I said,  No biggie.  Sand it and paint it again.  Oh Well!
 
As far as fish eye eliminator is concerned, this Nasson 2K Polly paint does not like it.  I was advised NOT to use it by the body shop supply.  Sessile, the guy at the supply, has been selling me paint for 40 years.  Hell, he's 70.  I was told by a few bodyshop firends, I am the only one who can make him smile.
 
The colder air is stretching the total cure time from 72 hours to 96 hours.  It takes a week to see any flaws in the job.  The big key with this stuff is to lay light coats.  So it can take 4 shoots to get a mirror finish.
 
Right now, I have blown several coats of filler primer on the hood and probably 320'd more than half of it off.  Tomorrow moring, I will hit the hood with some 600, wipe and blow, tack rag, and hit the color.  When those inners are dry enough, I'll sand and reblow the color on.  Then I can put the front together mask off the hood and finish the fenders and front pieces.  I'm debating painting the front fenders off the car, as the valance and latch support,  The left front is ready for paint.  The RF needs to be worked yet.   It's been ripped and heavy coats of filler primer.  I see some slight damage that beeds filling.  That fender had damage on it, I had the sheetmetal so close, it's possible the primer took care of it.

When painting, you have to get enough paint in the first place to be able to batch the cans together in a bigger container....that's what we do at the resto shops. Once we had to mix 16 gallons of lacquer together in a empty lacquer thinner drum for a Duesenberg to make sure the color was correct.

I had an incident with my resperator.  It's a dual filter 3M made for this stuff.  One of the filters fell off while I was painting.  I didn't notice it until well into the job.  So I got a face full.
So I went out and got an oil free compressor from Amazon, got a refurb for 169.00.  Went to Grainger and got a pressure mask and a 25' hose.   Now the mask will be under positive pressure.

I can get the tent up to 65 with no wind.  It holds it pretty well.  I can keep it at 50 with a cube heater and the halogen lights when 35 outside.  I get the sheet metal warmed up.  shut off the heater, lay the paint, relight the propane heater in 1/2 and hour and repeat the process.  Works out fine.  Polyurathane has a hardner in it, so it dries no matter what.  Actually it allows it to flow a while longer.  45 predicted for Friday.  I have to go for it then so I can get everything inside.

While it's cold out, I am working on other things like getting the 413 done and getting the doors stripped down and ready for painting.
 
I repaired the window tracks on the front doors tonight.  This was pretty easy actually.  I got the track material from Restoration Specialities.  (Thanks for the link Bob)  The one that was split, shown previously, has been spot welded back together.  That was the drivers door, where there were numerous other problems
 
I peeled the old track out, it was pretty bad,  Then I washed the piece up real good, making sure I had all the loose material out.  Using 3M spray adhesive, I sprayed the channel on all three sides.  Waited a bit and started to press the material in.  I used a stainless ruler with a rounded end.  Worked perfect.  I was able to push the material into the sharp corners.  Then I took a razor blade and cut off the waste.  When that was done I tucked the top under the stainless trim on the top half and Poof!  Perfect window track.  The glass slides up and down nicely in it and no laterl play.  This is actually how they did it in the early 50's.
 
I got some real nice metal backed stuff for the rest of the window from, of all places, JC Whitney.  It's perfect.

A month ago I was complaining about how cold it was.  But today, the weather was great.  I took advantage of the 65 degree weather to get the front doors edged.
 
Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40's so I;ll sand the filler primer and wait for the enxt warm day so I can throw some color on it. 
 
Given the space I have to work in, I'm going to paint the two doors and front fenders.  I need to align the RF a bit more, needs a 1/8" tweak up on the nose.  Put a few pieces in and blow the color on.  The Hood has to wait until I get the new one.

Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Guests on March 07, 2011, 03:20:19 PM
Constant pressure air pump for sleep apnea patients, a problem with the uvula relaxing too much during sleep closes off the air flow, which allows a person to stop breathing during sleep, which causes gasping snores, which causes a reduction of oxygen during sleep and reduced REM sleep and can be dangerous over time. My mask is much smaller.

  Yes air flow does help paint dry quicker. Having air flowing over the car helps draw out the solvents. The hardner / catalyst in the clear won't really kick in good untill the solvent is gone. I always leave the exhaust fan in my booth on for at least an hour after I'm done spraying. Looks good in the pictures Steve.

Looks good, glad you verified the fenders have to be off to install the valance without bending it to install, and yep, 1000 grit is to remove the little stuff and bug legs. Between that and the buffers (you have a video on how to do that right), coming along just fine. SLow process to say the least, on my end I have a few last things to do to the Dakota before I can drop the engine in her, but at least I have all the pieces now, I had to cut the exhaust in half to get it from the wreck to the other one so I have to weld that up, then I get to adjust some wiring harness, headlight wires at the grille area were damaged, but the truck wiring that caught on fire was good in that area, so I should have some fun tracing and replacing, will splice and shrink wrap if too much of a hassle.

Don't remind me about the love of a good basket case. My TR4 has been in a 4ftX5ftX16ft box in the garage since 1995, all the parts except block, body less all panels, and frame are in the box, the rest have been in a 9ftX12ft storage shed on a concrete platform (old garden house that termited out years ago), all degreased, wrapped and packaged up, just waiting for reassembly. That's dedication for survival. Heck, it took me 15 years to get the engine and tranny (j2.5 and 5spd manual) for it, sitting in the back of the Dakota it just came out of (I got the spruced 3.9 and 5spd manual trans into the engine bay this afternoon)(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif).

No you wouldn't. Think about what you did to Polaraco because you could, not because you had to. Working on cars is the best therapy there is. If in working on it you get frustrated it gives you something to think about to ease the daily grind problems, and when you get bored you get to daydream and contemplate how and what to do to make it to your liking if the daily grind gets to you. These abstract thoughts keep the mind working. What do you think got me through thirteen years at seatime deployment with no land to touch?

Bowlegged? No horse riding out there. Keeping a sharp mind worrying about the family and three weeks between letters, that is, before email, was worrisome to say the least, so cars in general, porting, engine design, improving those designs, no desktop dyno to play with in the first 10 years I was in the Navy, so a lot of it was done in my head. I am still working on a Bourke engine design that does not have a horse collar common rod and triple slipper bearing on the crankshaft. Between that and a shear supercharger design that doesn't require an almost equal amount of hp to run as it produces and only has two touching parts, I kept my mind busy.

Once we have this engine party, I can concentrate on the engine and trans.  I have no idea what I'm in for on the trans mount yet, but it looks pretty simple on paper.  I might be able to use the original mount with the spring and Mount.  I'll have to make an adaptor plate for the trans.  Then it's the drive shaft.

 Snotty be proud.. Which reminds me. Hey Scott! Do you remember how the passenger door fit? I have it straight all the way around, the gaps a re stright and good in the front. But the back gap widens as it goes up the pillar and it;s close at the top. Was it like that or don't you remember? I futzed with the alignment of that door for 3 hours.
 
 
Car's looking really good Steve.  As for the door, I do not remember; sorry Buddy.  I just looked at a picture of the car but could not see anything for clarity.

The door panel lines up perfectly.  Once it leaves the panel, the shape of the door must change. 
 
Imagine the skin of the door aligned perfectly.  Level on the seams, even seems.  But once you look at the door frame above the skin, the upper window frame goes up in the back and the seam widens as it goes up.  The top rear of the window frame is close to the gutter.  I can probably straighten it with the trim pieces., but afraid it may hit the gutter trim now.
 
I'm thinking the door skin may have been replaced sometime.  Minor indications of that inside the door.  That and the skin didn't have any of the original color on it.

I know the assembly in those days was + or - 36".  I can't imagine them selling them like that though. . .  But as stated above, I suspect the door had been reskinned at some time

Hard to say withour seeing it but if the window frame is high in the back and the gap widens as you follow the gap up sound to me like the frame is attached to the lower door frame a tad too high. Maybe it was rewelded when the door was skinned? I say this because if you lower the window frame it will fix both problems. It will give you clearance to the gutter and it will close up the gap on the top of window frame. See if you can find any sign of the window frame being messed with.

Post by: Steve on May 09, 2011, 09:10:15 PM


Looked at it tonight again, I think I will try to slide the door back a bit.  Needs a 1/4" back.  There is less than an 1/16th on the top in the back, but a good 1/4 in the front.  The gap is pretty wide at the back along the frame.  A good 1/4 there too.  But again, all the lines are straight and even.  Guess I have to mess with it some more.

There is always the secondary option of moving somewhere else so you can have more room to do things. I would almost (almost) move to Arizona to own a garage like Chris's. If I could just get the humidity up above the 2percent range, I would be in heaven.

Sounds about like my week with my Dakota. Took it out of non-op, down to smog, at a test only place, and of course she failed NOx. Off to the other place I go, everything is working and they come down to Cat (of course), so it gets replaced (150K, was probably about time), weld it all up, passes, so back to the test only place, failed again. Pissed. Back to the smog place and they are about to close but said it is guaranteed, bring it back in the morning, so I do, and they weld up the exhaust some more since everything else does work and function properly. Goes back to the second time I have heard that more back pressure was needed, just like you were told, and with a glass pack muffler (very quite after the head was ported, by the way), but she passed with 10 percent of the average output once the exhaust was welded up some more, rest of the numbers are just about double my PT Cruiser which are less than four on all measurements, so she is definitely clean burning. So Friday I have to go across town (yeah, 17miles one way) and I develop a tick. Right now number 2 is dead. Although it may be a bad sparkplug, which of course, in listening to it tap, everything else is fine, just a metallic tick, idles fine, temp fine, oil pressure fine, just this bad metallic tick that increases with speed, so the first plug I pull is number 2, which is black, the rest are just fine, so, either a bad plug, or hopefully not a broken valve spring.  So much for trying to keep the price of this build down, at least it didn't come apart, just hope the driving below 1600rpm for about 16 miles didn't hurt her badly.

I can hope. Thing is, first 130miles didn't do this. I don't get to jump on the repair instantly, but will get to do the spark plug replacement first, then pull the valve cover. Thing that is the biggest bummer, I was going to get the garage inspected so I could have that over with, but between the smog fun and DMV, then an in-house paint and refurbish job while the wife and kid are off on vacation, garage inspection was on the bottom of the list. I just pray the new cam isn't hurt.

Well, got lucky with the valvetrain sputter, turned out to be a broken bolt for the exhaust valve rocker. I had one that was a little sticky, guess there was some grit in it, then I probably upset the thread balance before I cleaned the threads. Drilled and easy-outed the bolt and things were back to normal.

Hey, I got the garage itself approved, no more work on it itself, just have to add an 8ft by 8ft slab area to back out of the garage onto.....at a 90 degree angle from the side that is, because the shape prevents the full length "required", which would put me over a four foot embankment, and the fire marshall has to do a walk-around, but at least I can start getting a few things moved around.  Time to scrap the parts truck after pulling a few more things off it for spares (like we all do), then start more on the house itself.

It's possible, but it has 2 wires going to it so I don't know yet.  I have to find a wiring diagram for it.  We know one of them is a 12 volt signal, but somehow I get the feeling it was controled by the lean burn computer

Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Guests on September 15, 2011, 10:42:01 AM
The second wire will show going to the coil when you trace it down, but I can't remember if it is the positive side or negative side. You are right, lean burn along with a mess of wires that includes some temp sensors on the intake manifold and controller on the air cleaner, so delete all them and go directly to the coil or it will not charge. Had this fun on an 84 Ramcharger a few years back.
Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Steve on September 15, 2011, 12:00:34 PM
It uses a regular regulator.  But I think it takes a straight 12 Volt signal.  The coil would be 9 volts.  The harness piece I saved when I took this has 2 green wires.  Not a green and a blue like we are used to seeing.  Strange.  That's why I am questioning the wiring right now.
 
Leanburn!  You don't happen to have a wiring diagram available for 88 and 89 do you?  This came out of the champaign car.  I just nned to know if it's wired the conventional way

Steve, I may be off a little bit here, but it sounds like you have a laquer/enamel problem going on, making the paint/primer do this stuff.  Either that or there is some stripper material underneath the paint which was making it come off in sheets and was never neutralized, continuing to contaminate everything above it. After the second try and failing, I would (myself, not necessarily you), strip it to factory primer and metal and simply start over, trying to fix whatever is the problem isn't going any faster.
Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: azblackhemi on September 21, 2011, 08:00:28 PM
Well Steve I don't think you'll like what I have to say but here goes. Strip it to bare metal and start from scratch. Also quit using Lacquer primer. Your lifting problem is comming from the very aggresive solvents in the lacquer primer softening up all the previous layers of NON catylized materials. All the paint put on it back in the day was either acrylic Enamel or Lacquer. Both of which were air dried with no hardner. The final product is only going to as good as the weakest link. The paint you're using is good due to it being new technology but by puuting it over all that old school garbage you're taking a big chance with long term durability.

Because the grit is closer together. The grit is smaller but there is less area with no abrasives. Of course this only holds true with these 40 -150 grits. 600 grit will NOT strip better than 100.

That makes sense.  I have a box of 40 and 80 that has to be 5 years.  But I blew through 4 rolls of 120 on the car so far.  1/2 a role of 180 and 320 too.  AND I'M STILL FINDING TINY SPOTS! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif)

A very wise decision. I haven't done anywhere near as many paint jobs as you have, but I admit that getting down to original primer from the factory is always the best result, I have had and seen problems trying to cover some unknown quality/paint. Best one that taught me this lesson was enamel over a '62 Cadillac Hearse, which was laquer (black of course), and it quickly looked like the crinkle paint lead top, so she got stripped to bare metal. That's a big car to do three times.

I forgot to mention that it was used over sanded original Ma Mopar paint and some sandblasted to bare sheetmetal on that truck. Paint ended up being a catalyzed acrylic enamel (sanded and buffed).


But I have been told by quite a few painters that the polyester primer/fillers like Rust Defender work well to hold down questionable coatings and eliminate rings in paint jobs.

top down


or.....separate the roof with masking and do later (usually done when car is on a rotisserie and there is a molding or vinyl roof to break to)

Yeah, top down, that way you have less chance of damaging newly painted surfaces. Run the hose through your pant leg (bottom up, not top down, goofy), then through your shirt (again, bottom up) and through the arm you are going to paint with, or, if you have to or want to switch arms to paint with (rarely does a person do this), have it simply come out the top of the pants and use the opposite hand to hold the hose so it doesn't drag. Use a two step ladder you can move with you to get up that high, you are kind of short to shoot the roof easily(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif).
 
Best of luck, I know it will look great after you finish.

Here's my 2 cents. Top down is the way it's been done for years. Back in the day when spraying Lacquer and acrylic enamel top down made the overspray melt in better with air dried paints. Also old style conventional spray guns had the big old cups underneath them. If you sprayed bottom up with them you couldn't see what you're doing or at least where you've been. That being said with todays material and HVLP Gravity spray guns it doesn't really matter. When I was painting busses I would spray about a 4-5 foot section of the side top to bottom. when I moved to the next section I'd spray bottom to top since I was already down there. When I was finished there was no difference in the results. Even painting all these classics I've been doing it's probably 50 - 50. Usually the last coat of clear I go bottom up becase with the cup on top I have a better look at how it's going on. So my advice is do whatever feel comforable to you and do what gives YOU the best results.

Except for a couple of spots on the lid, I think I am done.  I did 320 and then 600 on the sealer.  See a bit of orange peel left.  The paint will probably fill that in just fine.  I didn't put that much into the hood and it looks great, but I see a couple of 320 scratches popped through.  You really have to look for them.  I saw a ding in the hood, and now can't find it.   Ahh I'll have to jitter bug it out anyway.  Ticks me off those bugs had to take a cruise across the hood.  Going to repaint the front anyway to get all the color even

What paint are you using Steve? (didn't go back and try to find it in

color we used on Clara, PPG Shop Line base/clear. Got a lot of orange

Does look good.  I'm likin' that Dupont 2K stuff... I've gotta
pick a B-5 Blue paint for Sapphire, that car is on my agenda for a body
touch up and new paint come Spring.  I'm not sold on Base/Clear,
it's too shiny for me.  I remember well how these cars looked new,
and B/C just doesn't look right.  Thinking this 2K might be the
right stuff, now gotta find the right painter, takes a good one to do
single stage just right, and the local paint jobber mentioned a nearby
guy I'm gonna check out.  How pricey is that stuff Steve... ? (he
said with a grimace of anticipation.)



PPG ShopLine single-stage is a good yet cheap paint, only $140 a gallon
in Red for the son's SAAB!  (not including hardener &
reducer)  It's pretty good stuff too for a driver quality job, but
not good enough for Sapphire!!

In other words, if you have a lot of dirt, like I have, don't spend too much time with the DA.  Some of those pieces of dirt are BIG!  Have no idea how this is going to look.  It looks like some of that dirt was so heavy it settled in the bottom of the paint.

Was wondering what those blunt end wires were, should be able to get a six or eight plug and matching connector to add it and look professionable at that point, and sure you know about NAPA carrying all the wire end male and female brass connector ends to do it prettylike. Did you use non-stick wrap, sticky black tape, or the cloth tape? I wholeheartedly prefer the latter myself, hard to find the non-stick wrap. dana442011-10-11 00:53:13

Non Stick wrap.  It took about 2/3 a roll to that.  But I have 3 more if needed.  It was hard to find, but I stumbled over it.

Much better than the sticky stuff. I finally found the cloth tape by 3M, very factory original, my Dakota had it in 1995, and yeah, lots of plastic tubing, but the black cloth on the ends, feels sticky when you  put it on and after that, it not only doesn't, but it doesn't unwrap like the sticky stuff, gas doesn't seem to affect it, and dirt really doesn't stick to it, either.

Man that's looking good Steve!!  I could easily live with dirt in that paint if it was on my crewcab...sure beat the chalky, thin to primer stuff that's on there now.

Think I will be looking into that 2K stuff as well.

As for tape wrap...I like to use Hockey stick tape...the cloth stuff.  Cheap to buy and looks, and sticks very well.

One reason I usually use  Basecoat / clearcoat is because it makes touch up easy. Especially metallics. Blend out the color and clear the whole panel and you're done. The downside  though the  is the cost.

I consulted with my body guy today.  He had a real good idea. 
 
Since it's only the hood, and I can get the car pretty deep in the tent, why not paint it on a damp day where there is no dirt in the air.
 
Today would have been perfect, but it's too late to run to the paint store.  Oh there is enough rain around here for me to just blast it anytime in the next few weeks.  I guess the plan of attack will be that.  I can 600 the hood out and wait for a fairly warm/damp day to hit it.  Since it's polyurathane, there is no blushing unless it collects on the surface.
Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Guests on October 13, 2011, 11:59:34 AM
Yeah, I would do the whole hood and be done with it. Remember where you were standing when you did the other parts of the front end so the angle of the spray will lay the metalflake down at the same angle so it doesn't have a weird shine to it (funny how that works with touchups or whole panels. At least you have the edges of the hood so there isn't the tape line panel touchup thing going on.

Nothing really new, except!
 
Mr. Chris
 
I'm having alignment problems with the hood.  Horizontally, it's perfect.  Vertically on the left side it's perfect.  But the right side, at the cowel, it's high about 1/4.  The hinge is all the way down on the adjustments.  The hood latch is caught, the front is just about perfect, give or take a 32nd on the right.  RF Fender is right on.
 
However, the hood is low in the middle at the cowel.  It's OK on the right.  Now I know if I bend the middle up a little the right will come down, but so will the left and then the Horizontal goes to pot.
 
Short of taking the hinge out and elonging the holes, you have any other ideas?
 
I'm sure you've seen this before.
 
Hard to say without seeing but one possibility for the cause is after all these years of closing the hood with stiff hinges the inner hood skin has been pushed in at the front mounting hole. If that's the case pushing up on the front of the hood on that side when opened just enough to bend it back might work. The other question is after closing the hood it sticks up but if you push down on the rear corner after closing does it go down? If so it might be a worn out hinge. If all else fails slotting the holes is your only option.

Here's one for you.  Ed and I took the power steering and AC from the parts car.  You saw the compressor installed.  I finished the pump and went to install it, and it did not fit.  The bracket doesn't fit over the AC bracket in the front, and if I put it behind the bracket, the bracket runs against the pully.  According to the manual the bracket goes over the power steering mount.  Must be the pully on the compressor.  It's brand new.  Well the compressor bracket is now gone.  I can go back to it again sometime, but the compressor has so many brackets on it now. . .  It's will probably never be missed.

This B & M shifter is driving me nuts.  I want to put the car down so I can get the info for Bob on the valve rebuilter.  I can't seem to get it right.  The shifter I bought is not what I thought it was.  It's a ratchet style and I can't seem to get the cable to join up in sync.  I run out of adjustment.  Back to it after dinner.

Quote from: POLARACO
I finished the pump and went to install it, and it did not fit.  The bracket doesn't fit over the AC bracket in the front, and if I put it behind the bracket, the bracket runs against the pully.  According to the manual the bracket goes over the power steering mount.  Must be the pully on the compressor.  It's brand new.  Well the compressor bracket is now gone.  I can go back to it again sometime, but the compressor has so many brackets on it now. . .  It's will probably never be missed.

I did this on the 360 in my 70 Sport fury when I installed the Eddy LD4B intake.  I had to loose one of the support brackets running back from the RV2 compressor to the intake.  Since there was no hole for it.  The compressor never moved...way over bracketed.

Here's a good one that rattled my cage.  A trans cooling line was in the way of the shifter cable.  So I decided to take the fitting out and replace it with an elbow.  Snap!  I had to drop the tail, drill out the hole and tap it for an 1/8 NPT fitting.  I had to reduce the size anyway.

Still having issues with the fan clutch and belts.  The belts I got yesterday were way too short.  The ones I got today are way too long.  The books call for a 68" belt.  But it's more like a 63" belt.  It's probably because of the smaller alternator.  I can get the 68's taught, but run out of adjustment.

Broke my onions trying to figure out why this thing wouldn't run.  Turns out it was a control box.  I put in a spare and she ran pretty good.  But I question the carb, even though Cory rebuilt it.

I have to say, as good as the Mopar electronic ignition is, I really like the Mallory Unilite system, no control box and it fits into the distributor. Glad you got her running at least, verify the firing order, double check the timing, needles to 1.5 turns out to start, keep her above 1500rpm for the next half hour, warm her up good, check for leaks, disconnect and plug the vacuum advance for right now, and take a breath knowing the hard part is done.
 
Congrats on getting her running.

Well, check the float level and make sure fuel is getting to the carb to begin with, no plugged line, crimp, filter dirty, needles in the jets properly and not too fat (plugging the jets themselves).
 
What did the 800 do? If the carb swap fixed it, yeah, something wrong with the other one.

Sounds like the float is low, starts and runs at 2000rpm because of the fumes after she has been sitting a few minutes, also why the choke helps and why dribbles of gas keeps her running.  Just saying.

I hate  it when you are right.
 
Hey, I had the center carb on my 6pac stick CLOSED, so when the last time I started her to get her home, no gas to the carb even though the filters showed gas pumping in, and there was gas in the two outer carbs. Was just about to pull the front carb off so I could get the center carb off (it's designed this way), then thought, well, usually the needle sticks open and floods gas all over the place, so pulled the needle adjuster off the carb and it was stuck closed this time. After about ten moving up and down she started moving on her own and everything was OK after that.
 
You know how to pull the top of the carb off, this may be something worth checking, I have that same carb that used to be on my Barracuda and it was a really nice monster of a carb. Does yours have a phenolic float or a brass float?
 
 Absolutely agree with you that it is the carb, just have to figure out what is wrong and how to fix it.

TQ's are a ficle carb.  I find unless you spend a good couple hoours checking, and re-checking all the settings on the carb it just nevers runs right.  But when you do get it right...boy watch out!!

I'm not disagreeing with either of you.  My original plan was to go with this carb to begin with.  It was Eherenberg who conned me into going TQ.  So I picked one up, had it rebuilt and here I am.  I suspect there is some3thing wrong with it internally, and not Cory's fault.  I bet this edelbrock will perform the same.  I bought the Thunder series.  Not that means anything

The Thunder series will do just fine, you are probably right, something internally is wrong but not Cory's fault more than likely, probably something from a humidity collection problem making something stick inside that shouldn't.

New one is here, but it will be later before I can put it on and try it.  I am finishing up the harness and adding wires and relays for the AC and electric choke.  All these new loads are coming off the ignition switch and going to relays.  I had to relay the headlights anyway and was planning on one for the AC compressor.  I have to rewrap the harness and make some corrections anyway.  I got this really neat little fuse block that looks really cool and simple

For those of you who don't know. . .  
I learned something about sand paper after speaking with Chris yesterday.  The low end , off sore crap is not consistent grit.  More expensive papers have consistent grit and should be used to get that show finish.  It's also easier to polish.
 
I spent some time with some other discs I had today and see the difference.
 
I have to repaint the door and do it again.
 
I really do appreciate the tip.
I did enough things on the car twice...

Got the trans lines in, can't terminate them on the Rad until I get it down on the ground.  I am redid the throttle linkage with a store bought cable, the other one was jamming.  As innovative as it was, it was a PITA.  I started on the permanent mount for the shifter, the pieces are cut, when I warm up a bit, I'll weld the piece in.  I wanted something that I wouldn't have to worry about with the carpet.  Had to raise a portion of the hump 1".  I'll get ya some pictures when I finish it.  I will be rerouting the cable tomorrow and if I can find the lever arm, I am going to hook up the kick down linkage.  Done underneath for a while.

Why not take the pushbutton console and make a center console to mount them in where your shifter is? My buddy did that and it was pretty cool, pushbutton on a center console in a '64 Custom 880 2door. Flexible cable worked just fine that way.

Steve-0- why don't you do what I did with Ukin' Fugly; Leave the Stock AM radio in the dash. If you want it to work and it's got tubes, Angelo can get it going for you. Hide a small power amp under the dash and connect an IPod jack to it, I put the plug in the ashtray. Nobody know its there but me, and it sounds great. Of Course thats assuming you have embraced IPod Technology, or any other MP3 player.
Try it... You'll Like it!

Yeah, figures, the year of my Charger. Hmmmm, brackets are different for the B blocks, but yeah, that dual turbo setup would be pretty cool, and so would a turbo diesel, huh? You could also do a stroker 5.2 and have a 392 I think it is, Hughes has that kit. The 1.94 intakes breathe plenty fine, heads and a real intake need some serious porting, but at least she will be able to breathe better than the small 318 intakes or 1.78 for old 318s. It could be set up as a direct bolt-in to the mounts then later in the year you could get that other 413 and drop it right in.

Your heads would work. It is just an industrial block, nothing fancy, just durable, probably about ten extra pounds of metal in it, that's all. It's the heads and water pump together that are needed for that application (cooling attachment at the ends of the heads), but the water passages are the same in the block for your heads. Thing is, the block would need to be cleaned up and probably bored if it is bare, rarely are they in good condition when industrial and all that, probably an emergency generator or something industrial like that.

Title: 62 Chrysler New Yorker Blue Diamond Restore
Post by: Guests on April 13, 2012, 03:26:03 PM
452 is the last three digits on the casting number, located on one of the runners located under the valve cover. You'll find it. Bowls, short side turn and port matching, pretty standard all the way around. Last thing to do is etch the head gasket ring itself and get rid of the sharp edge inside there. These are open chamber heads, meaning they do not have half the chamber (almost) machined flat so they have a good burn inside the combustion chamber, just a sharp edge all the way around the chamber. Only other thing to check is any machining rings done around the valve seats in the combustion chamber. If you can catch your fingernail on the rings, take the end of the carbide burr cutter and smooth them out and leave it at that.

Take some 600wet/dry to the piston sides, it will knock the sharp edges off, sand around the piston, not the same direction, they will be fine. Dirt can be a pain. If the journal wasn't cut on a taper, could have been dirt under the bearing, too.  Are the bearing journals stock, or are they .010/.010? .020/.020 is still well acceptable in necessary, Mopars are known for oversized journals to begin with.

800 crocus will work fine, they just need touched up. As far as the rings go, replace them, they only have a ten percent chance of sealing a second time as it is, and that isn't worth thaking her apart, again, so don't worry about abrasives getting in the ring grooves, wash them afterwards. If you need to use the crank again, go .020/.020, more than safe enough.

The machine shop siad since the rings have never seen the road and the engine has only seen 2 gallons of gas, they should be fine with a fresh bore as this was fresh too.  But given all the crap I have found, I might do that anyway.  I have to put money into this I don't have

Well, pull them off without breaking them, 400grit them the length of the ring face five or six times, wash them, put them back in. Heck, I have had to replace rings because they sat too long inside the bore of an engine not run and went lax, plenty of smoke and oil blowing around inside the exhaust pipes. If you have a fresh bore and all that, it's a real savings, might as well.

It was quite a while ago, like 1990, but they were moly rings, only ones I ever use. The engine sat assembled for 11 months before started. This was the third time I had rings do this, the other two engines sat about the same length of time but were cast rings. Other guys, engine assembled for 13 years and sitting under a bench and didn't have a problem at all.

I'll have it close to runningby the time Leaburn gets here.  I am missing 2 items.  One is the idler assembly for the fan belt and the upper rad hose.  I have a new one,  Everything else is accounted for.  Except for the box of NOS dash parts.  MMMMMMM (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

All 413's were 6 bolt valve Covers.  

Only after mid-year 1962.  The original motor had 4-bolt valve covers which was why I used stock covers instead of chrome or aluminum.

I figured Steve used the 452 heads instead of the stock heads (larger exhaust valve if nothing else), and yes, hardened exhaust seats. Never had a problem with any of the heads, but I like the closed chambers over open chambers (I'm a high compression type of guy, and can still run 87 octane, I showed Steve how to fix the problem).

As far as I know, those are the 63 heads.  Hardened seats are notan issue if the caris run slightly rich.

Absolutely correct there Steve, closed chambers are superior to the open chambers for burn, especially with the lip to the closed chamber removed right next to the valves, flame travels an easy 30 percent farther into the area, meaning even more power. A little rich is always good in these cases, so I'm thinking you are either retaining or retreiving more information from your little medical issue, so that makes me happy all the way around.

Really coming together now!! ... hope to hear this one run one of these
days.  My youngest sister recently moved from the San Fran CA area to Noth Joisey
(Clinton), so maybe I can swing a two-fer this fall when the lake
season is over.

Car pulls very good.Power steering and the 4 wheel disc brakes feel good as well.
Steve is on the home stretch but still a lot of work to do.

Right on Dave!!!  They are Flowmasters that Steve wants to get rid of.  I was thinking the same thing!  They sound great Stevo!!  Keep them!

(And, put on some tail lights, eh?)

Snotty, I sent the tail light bezels out ot be rechromed.  I need to order the gaskets for the outsides frm Gary Goers.  And I have to finish sanding and polishing the rear around the tail lights.  Patience isn't one of your better attributes.  LOL

Sick of single stage! 'Bout time. I seem to remember telling you that LOL. Can't remember the last time I used anything other than base / clear. On another note Steve start making a list of anything you might need off this parts car because as soon as it cools off here (probably middle of October) I'd gonna do a major clean up here. I'm going to strip and scrap everything I have no plans for.  I'm gonna keep all good parts but shells are out of here. I need the room.
