    1920’s Mannesmann Auto

    Looking through my wife’s family’s photo album we came across these cool photos of her grandfathers car about all we know about the car is that it is a Mannesmann. Oh and they lived near Giessen in Germany and it looks like cool car and it’s interesting that it is right hand drive. If anyone has any info on the type of car etc it would be much appreciated. Anyway hope you enjoy the pictures

    1920’s or early 30’s Sedan

    So yesterday I was at my in laws looking through some old photos and there were a few car ones. My wife’s family are German and these photos were taken there around the Giessen/ Frankfurt area and I’m wondering what their sedan was? One of the photos we believe is taken at a ADAC event as my wife’s grandfather competed in these. Also in the background of this photo is another big car it would be interesting to get a Identity on it too.

    1920’s or early 30’s Sedan

    Wow thanks for such fast reply I will have to get my wife to do a little translation when she gets home, I said to her yesterday that I did not think it was a cheap car she thought they wouldn’t of spent that much on it but then again that’s all relitive to what one thinks is fair amount of money. Thanks again it certainly looks a match

    Chrysler publication recommendations

    Thanks for the suggestions I have ordered both but for now and the next week or two I’ll have to be content with this view and dreaming of good yields to pay for more vintage car stuff
  7. Hi all I’m just wondering if anyone has some suggestions of good books about the different Chrysler models etc. I prefer info about vehicles up to about the 40’s doesn’t matter if there is extra or later years as long as that doesn’t take up the majority of reading or as long as the reading on the 1920’s is really good, that would be great. Anyway any suggestions appreciated and you may wonder with the internet why I want a book but that’s because I prefer book I can dream about discovering another project whilst reading a book 😁 thanks Oh I like photos too

    Crankshaft Pulley Removal 218CID G70

    Here’s what I used and what my pulley looks like. As for timing marks if you’re talking ignition timing and the G70 is anything like the 65 there is a plug in the head above number six that you remove to find top dead centre etc not much fun to do either.

    Crankshaft Pulley Removal 218CID G70

    To remove the pulley /harmonic balancer of my 1929 Chrysler 65 which looks very similar I just used a cheap harmonic balancer puller I got from the auto store I think I had to buy a couple of bolts to fit the thread of the holes on the pulley anyway I will try and get a picture later
  11. Hi all here’s a question I’ve been wondering about did 1929 Chrysler 65 sedans come with a side mount spare tyre or was this only a option offered on Roadsters, Coupes and tourers as they are the majority that I see with this option and usually they have wire wheels too. I’m wondering about this as I picked up a mudguard and all the brackets for this and I’m considering if I should fit it to my sedan but I’m still not sure if it will look right or just stupid. Any way any thoughts/opinions and any photos appreciated Cheers Ben

    Crankshaft Pulley Removal 218CID G70

    All the previous advice is great. I can’t remember having too many dramas undoing mine but make sure those tabs are on the washer are folded flat and I probably used a 3/4 drive socket with a breaker bar that’s probably about 18 inches to 2 foot long and she let go fine then used a puller to remove the pulley, best of luck with it

    1929 Chrysler 65 side mount spare tyre

    Thanks for that. They look good still haven’t decided what I’ll do but have plenty of time to decide. My main reason for considering this is that my wife and daughter tend to carry a little more luggage then me and by doing this I would have more space at the rear of the car for luggage

    DA Window Crank

    No problems. Yeah now that you mention the pattern I see the difference. When I got my car it had four different styles of winders and handles Yuk! I didn’t so much mind them not being 100% the same as the originals but I wanted them matching.

    DA Window Crank

    I replaced the ones on my Chrysler with these from Vintage Supplies in the UK they were quite affordable too

  18. Hi all was just moving all my spares from one shed to another and noticed this on the bottom of one of the steering columns any ideas appreciated. I thought maybe to do with vacuum wipers or some sort of fuel saving device apart from that I’m out of ideas. Cheers Ben

    Vacuum tank rebuild

    Oh well I’m wrong again 🙄 I’m pretty use to that. Then again I probably didn’t have shiny metal as it was the inside of the tank but I did make sure there was no more rust flakes or tar black rubbishy stuff coming out and that did still take a lot of time. I also had the stop silhouette out of a tail light that was very corroded and fragile I dipped it in the left overs and it’s still in one piece too. Anyway good product.

    Vacuum tank rebuild

    I used the POR product in the fuel tank of my Chev back in 2000 and it hasn’t caused any problems since. Although I have heard of some having problems with it but I tend to wonder how good their prep work was, I spent a lot of time on prep

    Steering box dissasemble ??

    There are several hammers of various sizes🙄😁
  23. Hi there. I’m sure I have posted this page out of the manual for my Chrysler 65 before but I’ll put here again. My Chrysler had better pressure then yours but it was stuffed And may have blocked galleries. Apart from something been worn I’m not sure of what else could help fix this.
  24. Thanks I thought it may be for vacuum wipers but thought that it should have been mounted else where. Thanks again
  25. Here’s another view of it
