  1. I installed an NOS throw-out bearing in my '32 Chevy Confederate. Every time I push in the clutch it squeals like a pig. Was I supposed to soak that bearing in oil or something before I installed it? Or is it something else? Thanks. tom griffith/wisconsin

    1932 Chevy clutch squeeling question. Please help!

    Thank you for your advice. Yesterday I did takeoff that inspection cover and discovered that indeed there was a little flip up cover where you can put in oil. So I did. The next day after I let the oil sit in there overnight I started the car in about 60% of the noise went away . This morning I went out there and started it again and now I would say 85% of the noise went away, so apparently it worked. Thank you everyone for your detailed comments and helping a fellow car collector out. Tom

    Thanks. Now I'll see if I can get to it without having to take it out. Much appreciated.

    The only places I could find to put oil are the 1/2" plug in the first photo located in the center of the photo just under that arm; and, where the blue piece of tape with the arrow drawn on it is. I started the car and it still whines when you push in the clutch. And the faster you rev the engine with the clutch in, the faster the whine gets. I am missing something here? How do you lubricate the thing that making the squeal without pulling the trani out?

    Thanks for the advice. I'll try adding some oil as you suggested. No, it's not the 'ball type', but rather a disc looking thing with a hole in the center with an insert in the donut that looks to be made of something that's not metal, but rather some composite material.

    1932 Chevrolet Confederate clutch question??

    As I said, I did not lube it at all before installing it. Should I take it back out and coat it with grease or soak it in oil or what?

    1937 Imperial Airflow COUPE for Sale.

    Yes I know of the car that’s coming up for auction this weekend and in fact my car is number to 1217 and the one up for auction is 1216. Which means they were made the same day and right next to each other. However I can also tell you that I have looked at the photos of the car up for auction and it is nowhere near the condition as mine and that’s probably why the estimate is low.

    Overdrive question for '37 Airflow

    I test drove the car yesterday and you are correct that at about 40 mph or so you definitely hear a clunk and the RPMs go down. So I guess it is working. Thanks.
  19. I have a '37 Chrysler Imperial Airflow Coupe with overdrive. Is the overdrive activated when the dash lever is pushed in or pulled out?

    Overdrive question for '37 Airflow

    Believe it or not, this is near an original car. New tires and chrome and a 60 year old paint job! Engine has never been touched or detailed. It runs and drives like it's brand new.

    Inline water pump?

    Is there an inline water pump you can buy that would go in place of the bottom radiator hose that gives the internal water pump a boost for higher flow? tom griffith lincoln1955@msn.com
