  1. Hi Viv, thank you for your experience. I have new spark plugs type AC 78S. You should be right for my type. The manifold cover is new, as is the exhaust and intake manifold seals. But the fact is that the intake manifold that is bolted to the exhaust is always very hot. I put a heat-resistant pad between the intake and exhaust pipes (some were there, but they didn't last). So maybe the problem could be here too. I adjusted the ignition advance by listening, because I now use petrol with an octane number of 95 (in our country it has the lowest octane number and I have to add a
  2. My 1925 Chrysler four keeps the engine warming up a lot. I replaced the seal under my head, I had the radiator cleaned in a specialist workshop, but the temperature is still just below 100 ° C. The water pump does not have this type. I don't know what else to do and where the problem might be, so it occurred to me that I could replace a two-blade fan with a four-blade fan from a six-cylinder B-70. Not sure if that would be possible? My fan has a diameter of 17 ". Thanks for advice.
  3. I disassembled the front axle and when I put it together, I found out that I don't know how to adjust the toe-in of the wheels. Don't know how much it should be? Thank you for the advice. marbeton
  4. My 1925 Chrysler four 58 has very high gasoline consumption. The spark plugs are new, the ignition is adjusted, the valves as well, so I'll probably have to disassemble, clean and adjust the carburetor. On the lid of the float chamber is the type Stewart 25 series 1. There are other numbers and I do not know what they mean. I-28-I7, 4-22-I3 and II-28-II. When I disassemble the carburetor, does anyone have a plan of what it looks like inside so as not to damage anything unnecessarily? Finally, I need information on how to adjust properly. If anyone knew, they would help me a lot. Thank you marb
  5. Thanks for the help, your information helped me a lot. The engine is already repaired and working again. Now I just have to watch the temperature. Don't know what the operating temperature of a cooled engine without a pump is?
  6. I need to replace the cylinder head gasket on my 1925 Chrysler 58. There are numbers and letters on the engine block next to the head bolts. I don't know what they mean, because the process of tightening the nuts should be about the center of the head, rotationally or crosswise. According to those numbers and letters, that would not be possible. Don't know how Chrysler prescribed the cylinder head tightening procedure? And what tightening torque did he prescribe? Another question is that I didn't have any washers under the nuts. Probably someone didn't assemble them during those 95 years,
  7. Thank you all for your help and documentation. I finally got a new bearing from Timken with the same dimensions I needed. My car is driving again !!!!
  8. When I measured the real diameters, they were in inch. Timken Europe is looking for a similar bearing in their production. So let's see if he finds anything. But I would prefer to have the original old bearing so that the car has as many authentic parts as possible. My dream is for the car to be as it left the factory in 1925.
  9. Don't know the Olcar Beraring email address? Speaking English is difficult for me, my translator helps me to write.
  10. My 1925 Chrysler 58 has a damaged outer tapered roller bearing on the front wheel. The Chrysler parts catalog contains the following information: Outer bearing cone 10591 outer bearing roller 10596 and outer bearing cup 10592. Only cone and roller are damaged. Do you know what the new designation for this bearing is and where could a replacement be found? Or does anyone have this bearing? Unfortunately in Europe, most bearings are metric. The bearing is manufactured by Schaffer. Thank for you help.
