Hi All

just wanted to share a problem I had with the Fleetwood since I purchased it back in April.  It ended up being an incorrect or faulty torque converter.

Previous owner had tailshaft balanced and new harmonic balancer installed. I took all the belts off to no avail, had the carby checked, full engine tune, checked exhaust. Engine snd trans mounts we also replaced previously. This was doing my head in to the point I wouldn’t drive it, I could barely look at it! Some old school guys at Pro Automatics took a look at it and said “I reckon it’s in the TC”and it was. It had s Blue JA7 which was a Jaguar part number. The guys put a heavy duty one on from a later modelTH 400 and all fixed. The car had shakes through engine (at all RPM) and anything above 35 was shaking the whole car. If it wasn’t for this it would have been an engine out and balance. Now all the other little things are insignificant!

just thought I would share, cheers Shane

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

Posted by Lee Martin on June 24, 2019 at 3:07pm 2 Comments

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…
