    Hey I'm new on this forum, however, I need some help with my new chevy toy. I need a picture of the linkage on the tranmission for this classic car. I don't beleive this has the vacuum as has been mention in other notes. Looks as though some parts are missing. Hey has anybody any help on this problem? Bill

    What can I help you with? I have and drive a '48 Fleetmaster. I removed the vacuum assist from my car. I installed a vaccum assist bypass linkage rod. My Vacuun assist "can" froze up over time and made my shifter on my column almost unmoveable. So, I removed it, installed the bypass linkage and down the road I went. I have repair manuals I could take pictures of, ot I could take photos of the car itself. Let me know what I can help you with.

    My dads best friend lives in Cullman Alabama. How far are you from Cullman?
