My guess is that you must re-link every picture again Raffaele - the same work as uploading the dictures here directly. I'm not a puter-jockey, so perhaps someone else could kick in?

Raffaele, the edit is on all posts on all pages; I checked one random page and there was a too large photo posted - that means that you must side scroll until you see the EDIT button. Hope this helps you out.

On your desk is the ring missing.
The hole set, electical part of the switch, and lock
are mount from rear side of face plate and fixed by a screw.

Hi Raffaele

As far as I remember from the service manual from my '56 New Yorker (the Beast), or a service bulletin (087 in this case), if there is too much oil in the steering gear it starts leakting through the vent hole. From the pictures... your steering gear looks quite similar to mine (coaxial power steering gear). At my steering gear there is a filler screw at the top of the case near the upper bearing.

 

Good luck!

Dieter

The lower section of the power steering unit is under pressure, and the upper section with the hole is not. If there's leakage from that hole, fluid under pressure is getting past a seal within the unit. I've had mine rebuilt (I had the same problem) but didn't do it myself, so I don't know where to obtain the seals. Power Brake Exchange in Pittsburgh PA did mine.

Here's the place that rebuilt mine: http://www.powerbrakex-change.com/

The only "complaint" I have is that they were ready to paint it black "which is what they usually do", until I told them NOT TO--it SHOULD NOT BE PAINTED. I don't know if they will sell a"kit".

Since you posted the photo above I was able to make this.
Even though it is not done yet you can see under the missing door trim the original white paint. What an amazing transformation and what the car deserved. When you get it done please shoot another photo from the same angle as the top one so I can make a real representative Before and after shot.

I've seen the results of their work and it's really nice craftsmanship - their doorskins are very nice. Check out their home page (sorry, not in English yet)

Sure Lee.. i will make a picture with same angle ...
I like the Bumper Guards .... But i don't success to find. ...


Are they the same as on a 1958 Chrysler? If so, I might be able to find some for you, as this car is being parted out:

Hi raffaele , you're car looks to have had manual windows in originally, you will have to remove the blanks where the original winder handles came through as that's where you window switches will be , also the front doors and pillars will need drilling for the wiring to go through, you will see a indentation in the steel where the holes are located,

Also I see you have left the grill in silver , if it was a replacement bumper as in the picture with the guards,yours may have been Gold , I know there are a few Adventurer's with silver , but I think the Gold does make the front stand out more ,

Looking good anyway,

Just looking at the underhood shots , I noticed that the plates from the inner fenders to firewall are missing?

Paul.
