Tech- -BODY / Door Latches - Rear Doors

Thanks, I was looking at the bottom of the door, and before I put it all back together, I am going to vacuum out that area, and I'll tuck the plastic in there too.

I'll definitely keep it. If I can't get it to stick on it's own, I'll get some double sided tape, or use duct tape. I don't need any mildew.

Thanks... I will pick up some axle grease on the way home, and see if I can get it hooked back up properly.
Speaking of dust, do you keep the plastic lining between the panel and the door? I intend to, since it's there, but I wondered what others do.
Thanks again,

General Tech / Did Imps have 28" radiators?
« on: July 12, 2010, 07:56:34 PM »
Thank you... I was torn between that one, and the 2949037, which is the one for the 440 with the Max Engine Cooling option... I just wasn't sure which they would use, and when I actually had the car, it didn't matter what the part number was, since I already had the radiator. Also, it was 25 years ago, and I am not likely to have remembered anyway.

Do we have  part number for the 4 core radiator that would come in a tow package C-Body in '69?   I can't tell from the radiator listing that was posted, and the ones I can find all seem to have 3 cores...

I'm starting to see my own name in here alot... but I'm learning alot, so thanks in advance...
When I bought this '69 Monaco Wagon, the guy told me the doors weren't lined up right, so he had to lift up on the door handles to get the rear doors open.
My daughter found that the doors open just fine from the inside, so I presumed it was something in the linkage for the door latch mechanism.
Everything looked to be hooked up ok, but the button in the handle was not operating the latch, so I disconnected it, and removed the latch, and it really just seems to need some cleaning and lubrication.
So, the question part is... What sort of grease or lubricant is best, once I have cleaned the latch mechanism?
The fun part will be getting it all back in right, but I'm not worried about it much.
Thanks, as always...

Tech- -BODY / '69 Monaco / Polara Grill Question

I see the light... I just did not dig through enough pictures...
Thanks for the great info.

Tech- -BODY / '69 Monaco / Polara Grill Question
« on: July 12, 2010, 08:58:00 AM »
Here's a question.... more of curiosity than actual need...
On this '69 Monaco Wagon I recently picked up, I noticed that the grill material is a grid of squares, for want of a better description... The grill on the Polara I used to have was lines, as are most of what I've seen of '69 grills from these cars.
So, what I wonder is... did they offer a special grill? or could this have been specific to the cars build in Canada, or is  it likely a replacement or aftermarket grill?
For whatever reason, I prefer the lines over the grid, and I will probably try to find the panels for it, but if it is just a different grill that was actually offered on the car, I may try to see if someone wants it, once I find a replacement.

General Tech / Monaco Wagon Seats...
« on: July 06, 2010, 08:45:39 AM »
So, I finally got around to addressing the issue of my seat spacers... Found they are only on the driver's side... I took them out, and now it sits better, and I have better clearance for the legs under the wheel.
Funny how much difference that 1/2" or so can make.

Tech- -BODY / Sheet Metal

I have looked up a couple of places locally, and will see what I can come up with... Thanks for all the good advice....

I tried searching on this, and did not come up with anything, so I may be doing it wrong...
I am just wondering, since we don't have the availability of repop panels, like our cousins with Chargers and Cudas... where can one get some mild steel sheets to do small repairs on fenders, or frames?  While I'm there... what thickness are the fenders and frames on our C-Body cars from the 1969 era?
I may be in over my head, I wanted to put that out as a question...
