  1. Thanks Narve, For the update and the photo, you learn something new everyday, hope all is well and that you are getting ready for you Winter, unfortunately here in Australia we are hitting high 30 degrees and plagued with Bushfires and we're only starting Summer. In your photo the control rod at the base of the steering box is that the choke or advance and retard control? Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and helping as you do.
  2. As always you are correct keiser31, that's why the confusion about what motor it was.
  3. Hi maok, No it's not a 77 it's a 65 so prefix P is correct, the confusion came about because he said that the bought himself a modal 77 manual and I though that he bought a modal 77 but when he sent through the photos I saw it was a model 65, as for the starter the 65's only had the single locating bolt. He is over in Hungary so communicating is a bit difficult at times, but you know mw I'm willing to help anyone who cares to ask for help. Cheers Mate!
  4. Yes that is correct is a model 65, there was some confusion about which engine it had that's all. I am however confused as it says that the Vin number is 187341 but that's the engine number, I got him to send me a photo of the Fedco badge, if anyone with good eyes wants to have a guess? LL6?1R the ? looks like a 4 to me. So I would had though that the VIN would have been 776419 any comments would be welcomed. Thank you Gentlemen.
  5. Hi lambroast, As I said in my post unfortunately not mine, I am only trying to help a fellow forum member get some information and some spare parts, He recently purchase the car via eBay and now has the car over in Hungary. If interested here is the car that he bought: Cheers to all.
  6. Thank you keiser31, you have always been very helpful.
  7. Hello Forum members, does anyone know the original engine colour for a 1930 Chrysler 77? The Head is Silver but need to know the main body of the engine, not mine so don't have a photo to show.
  8. It would be best to remove the flywheel from the motor, you might like to have a look at how it's done.
  9. Thanks keithb7, Great to see the additional photos, hope it finds a good home, thought the fuel tank was missing but now it see it sitting on the back floor, at least it explains the Jerry Can holder bolted onto the Cowl.
  10. Paul can you please let us know what you and your Dad decided to do with the car and what the out come was? After reading some of the comments I envy you over in the States as it sounds like you have a greater selection of cars to choose from when looking to restore, my little project was in far worst condition when I first started, that's why in my first comment I said that I wished you lived in Australia.
  11. "LD819Y" That would make it a 1928 Dec. build, thanks for the photo.
  12. Hello again Paul, Any chance of a close-up of the Fedco badge, you refer to it as The plate in the center of the dashboard says "LD 9Y" there should be 3 number, I take it that it is LD..9Y which would suggest a early model 65 built between Oct. to Dec. 1928 the two missing numbers should pin point the month of build. From all the photos so far it appears to be a stock standard Chrysler model 65 although the Headlights are not correct for a 65, also not sure that the wind reflectors would have been an accessory you could have added when buying new car but someone put them on, the wheels look to be 5.50 X 18' 4 lugs to secure the tyres on, the vacuum tank is missing so either a electric pump was put on or that Jerry can hold bolted on the side of the cowl was the source of fuel "gravity feed". Good luck with your decision as what to do with the car , I can't believe that someone wouldn't that it on as a restore project, from what I can see it's 98% all there.
  13. Oh why couldn't you live here in Australia I'd take it in a heartbeat great project you have there, please do not take it to the metal recycling yard, someone in the US will give it a loving home I'm sure! Could you give us a few photos of the left side and rear of the car and more detailed photos of the wind reflectors, if by chance you don't get anyone who wants the car I'd be interested in buying the wind reflectors that are mounted on the front doors. Good luck and cheers from Australia.
  14. Hi Jeff, Just a quick thank you, the Bendix drive arrived today safe and sound. Thank you again. Alex
  15. Hi Vintageben, Can't give you an answer but this one was sitting in a 1925 Chrysler which had the ute conversion / treatment Cheers Alex
  16. Thanks Tristan, Sometimes the vent gets blocked and that will give to the same sort of problems that you're having, good luck with working it out.
  17. Hi Tristan, Is it possible to get a photo of the top, from the photo you posted I can't see a vent tube
  18. Hi Dave, What carb are you using? You might like to check out this post. cheers.
  19. Hello to all, I sent him a PM and got a reply, and yes it was a fuel problem apparently the fuel pump is faulty, they have ordered a new one and now waiting delivery. Here is the car in question with the proud owner.
  20. Alain, have a look at page 30 of the Owners manual that I sent you, it has the drawing of the valve in the engine and you'll see how it works.
  21. Alain, I have drawn the tightening sequence for you hope it will help, the stud torque should be 60- 65 for Chrysler 6 1924-32 models. It would be best to torque the head in stages say first to 20 then to 40 and finally to 60-65
  22. Yes it looks like the clip holder is upside down
  23. Yes indeed a Beautiful car, from your comment "not enough suck" sounds like your using the vacuum tank to get the fuel from the tank to the carb which is fine but if you have a small pin hole leak that could drain out the fuel over the few days that the car is not in use and there is your problem, I have a inline tap at the bottom of my vacuum tank that I close off when not using the car and below that I have a clear inline fuel filter so that I can see if I have fuel running down to the carb, being an up draft carb it could also be a problem with the needle and seat in the carb allowing the fuel to flood the carb over the few days and drain the fuel out that way. Please let us know what you find out.
