General Tech- - BRAKES / 1963 New Yorker Master Cylinder ?
« on: August 01, 2008, 06:16:00 PM »
I need to get a master cylinder sleeved, and I have access to two different cylinders.  I have been told by friends that either one is correct for original equipment on the 1963.  I would like to have a definitive answer on which one is the actual design that was original equipment from the factory.  They both look the same on the  top side, but on the bottom, one has a nub that isn't drilled.  On the other, there is no nub at all.  There are part numbers cast into the bottom of both, but I have  yet to be able to learn anything from these numbers, when I search old parts books.  The one that is correct, I am going to have re sleeved with brass by Sierra Specialty Automotive.  They came highly recommended by another hobbiest and restorer and the people that are doing my brake booster repair.  Thanks for the help...

General Tech- - BRAKES / booster question
« on: July 20, 2008, 01:48:40 PM »
I need to remove the push rod from the booster to install it in a replacement booster.  This is a Midland Ross booster.  The rod that I am referring to is the one that bolts to the brake pedal.  I got a replacement booster, but it doesn't have the rod with it.  I tried pulling it out, but without any luck.  Does anyone know what the trick is to removing this rod?  thanks Junk

Tech- - Engine / Valve cover design
« on: June 29, 2008, 07:35:21 AM »
I have a 1963 Chrysler New Yorker, and it has separate brackets that bolt to the engine under the valve cover bolts to hold the spark plug wires.  I have also seen some 1963 Chrysler New Yorker's with the 413 engine that have the spark plug wire holders welded to the valve covers.  Which is correct for 1963 Chrysler New Yorker with the 413 engine?  In its short life, it has had a few parts replaced with parts from other years.  I just don't know what is correct any longer.... thanks Junk...

Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / Substitute for Type A trans fluid
« on: June 10, 2008, 03:27:01 AM »
I need to refill my transmission after draining and changing lines and filter.  Since Type A is no longer available, what is the recommended replacement?   Will it be compatible with what is still left in the transmission?  Thanks

General Tech / Horn not blowing problem '63 New Yorker
« on: April 07, 2008, 03:36:10 PM »
I can't get the horn to work on my 1963 Chrysler New Yorker.  I have checked the horn relay, horns, wiring etc., and all is well, with one exception.  The steering shaft has lost its ground, and since the horn relay seeks a ground, and there is none, the horn will not blow.  I have found a place in the mast jacket that I can slip a wire in and touch the steering shaft with a piece of grounded copper wire, and the horn will blow properly.  I have checked the 1963 Chrysler Service Manual, and it doesn't give an solution for this problem.  I have also looked at the mast jacket from one end to the other looking for a broken ground strap.  There is no indication that there ever was a ground strap to the steering column.  I pulled the steering wheel, and checked the contacts at that end, and there are no issues at the top of the column.  Anyone have any suggestions as what to do next?  I already have about 20 hours into this one project trying everything that I know, only to come up empty handed.  HELP............. Junk.....

General Tech / Key Question
« on: April 04, 2008, 12:18:55 PM »
I only have one key for my car, and it isn't an original.  How does the ignition lock cylinder remove from the ignition switch?  Is there a key number on the ignition lock cylinder?  What about the door lock cylinders?  thanks Junk
