  1. I have six 7 lug wheels, lock rings, brake drums and lug nuts. Located in Brisbane. 0414805655
  2. Thank you very much. That is pretty much all I need for the time being. Nice car!
  3. Thanks, I will have a look. Can I veiw the pictures on a website or do I contact them? Would you have a link? Thanks again
  4. 75 is great, photos of everything would be great. Then I can make something that looks right and works. My car is a 72 standard roadster but i couldn't find any rear quaters so I am using a 1927 70 coupe body to convert into a convertible coupe. Got alot of work to do! leigh.raaen@yahoo.com Thanks
  5. Thanks, I just pulled the head of and meausred the bore. I have 3.127, so I guess 0.002 is what Chrysler allowed back in the day. I only have 5 thou wear so I need to hunt down some standard rings. I will have to wait untill I pull the engine down to see which pistons I have. One book says 3 rings, the spare pistons I have are 4 rings, and range from 1/8-5/32 and 11/64 rings! Not as straight forward as I thought.
  6. Thanks, I miss quoted the book. It says the clearence should be .002 I need to pull the motor down and measure the bore before I go any further. Thanks for your time.
  7. Thanks, you are right, I miss read the clearence, it is supposed to be .002 I need to pull the engine down and measure the bore and then work out which pistons will suit. I will ask the guy at the machine shop if he can find some newer rings to suit. Thanks for your help.
  8. Thanks for the information. I will do some research.
  9. Help please. I have a 1930 Chrysler 66 model. My manual states the standard bore size is 3.125 and the piston is 20thou under. So the piston size would be 3.105? I have a set of pistons I want to use for a rebuild and they measure at 3.125, so would these be 20 thou oversize pistons? Last question. Would the rings pictured suit the 3.125 pistons I have? The pistons I have are 1/8 and 5/32 grooves, not the 11/64 and 1/8 as per stated in the manual. This is probably a simple thing to work out but not for me because I don't know. Thanks for everyones time. Leigh<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
