Am going to do some work on my trans and read a few articles that the fluid filter needs to be only washed out and not replaced. Any thoughts?

Re: What to check on a 46 Mercury

Re: Le Barron Bonney installer

I would think any good upholstery shop would do it. you'd be only paying for the labor.actually if it's only seats you can do it yourself. Hog rings, pull tight and keep everything straight.

a rad. in a '41 has lower mounts on the frame and upper mounts that attach to the inner fenders. also I believe '41 fenders mount differently than '47. I'd go with whichever parts matches up the best...
