Factory assembly manuals https://desoto.org/community/cars-for-sale-wanted/factory-assembly-manuals/ Sat, 10 Aug 2019 19:40:39 +0000 Hi club members.  I always wanted a desoto so i bought a 58 HT in 2010.  I took all the trim off 2011. it got stolen in 2012. I got it back 2012. I took it completely apart in 2013.  Years went by.  Sat at the painters for 5 yrs.  Now i am getting it back!  I am old(er) now and do not remember how to put it back together.  I bought the green covered "service manual" but it really does not tell you how to assemble the car.  I do have many bags of bolts cryptically labeled but cannot make sense of it.  Are there any factory assembly manuals somewhere i could get?

Painted 1958 - Desot0 Firesweep interior https://desoto.org/community/cars-for-sale-wanted/painted-1958-desot0-firesweep-interior/ Sat, 10 Aug 2019 19:28:09 +0000 Hi, I took all of my interior components to the paint shop to be painted.  I mean all the parts.  I totally disassembled the dash removing the dash and all gauges.  The painter looked at the parts and commented that the dash was two different colors.  The top was a silver blue and the bottom half was baby blue. totally different paint .  He thought it was odd but painted it that way.    The dash gauges housings that mount in the bottom half also were painted like silver.  Was the originals painted that way?

1942 dash article in Hemmings https://desoto.org/community/general-discussion/1942-dash-article-in-hemmings/ Mon, 05 Aug 2019 23:46:16 +0000 I got my September issue of Hemmings a few days ago.  (I still haven't finished reading my August copy due to life getting in the way.)  But when a new issue arrives, I always look through the ads and the articles to see if any De Sotos are highlighted.  On page 36 of this issue is an article about the design of the dash for the 1942 De Sotos called "De Lovely Display".  It's a nice article, and states that this particular 1942 De Soto is in the NB Center for American Automotive Heritage in Allentown, PA.  Another thing in PA that I've put on my list of things to see.

Kickdown Switch question https://desoto.org/community/general-discussion/kickdown-switch-question/ Wed, 31 Jul 2019 17:03:02 +0000 After driving my '46 with Fluid Drive for several years, I realized I had never tried to activate the Kickdown Switch. So on a recent weekly drive while going about 25 or 30, I tromped on the gas pedal. Car accelerated, but did not kick down into a lower gear. Then while going up a slight grade, I tried it again, and yes, tranny kicked into lower gear, however, the engine accelerated wildly but car did not speed up. It felt and sounded like it went into neutral. Have not tried it since. Any thoughts?  ( I should mention I previously had a '49 DeSoto and '50 Chrysler, both with Fluid Drive and used the kickdown feature with no problems.)
