  1. 1931 Chrysler CD8 Sump Removal

    Many thanks you for your information much appreciated, hopefully it will be similar to the Dodge.
  2. 1931 Chrysler CD8 Sump Removal

    Would anyone have knowledge of removing the sump from a 1931 CD8 281c.i. without removing the engine from the car? There appears to be a cross-member at the rear end with a rubber stripped bracket that covers part of the sump, if I remove the bracket will the sump slide back enough to remove? any help appreciated.

  4. Stromberg DXC-3 Carburettor

    Can anyone advise me please! On overhauling a Stromberg DXC-3 carb. for my 1931 Chrysler CD8 Deluxe convertible coupe I noticed that there is a threaded hole in the base of the fuel bowl which leads into a metering jet. The thread doesn't appear to have been used so I wonder what should be there (if anything).

  8. 1931 Chrysler CD8 convertible coupe

    Thank you for the information, I am in the process of buying this CD8 and wanted to find out what comfortable cruising speed I can expect. Since posting I see that I didn't mention it was a convertible which possibly has a slightly higher ratio, also I now have the engine number from which I have found it is the 282cu.i. model with 4 speed box. Regards Vic

  12. Putting a Downdraft Carb on a 1931 Buick

    I have a '31 Buick 8 L90 with an incorrect model Marvel updraft carburettor fitted, after hours spent checking and adjusting I just can't get the engine to run smoothly (running too rich). Also with gas at around 7 dollars a gallon in the UK I want to flip the manifold and fit a more economical downdraft. Can anyone advise me what carburettor would work? Would I bolt it direct to the manifold and dispense with the heat riser? as I can't think it would otherwise clear under the hood. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.
