  1. Would anyone have for sale a capillary type temp gauge like this? Or could tell me of where it can be repaired. I would appreciate any help.
  2. yes I have now thanks, just got back home to the U.K.
  3. A friend has now fully overhauled the carb, the engine has also now been overhauled so once it's back in the car it'll be fingers crossed how it runs. I guess if it's disappointing I'll be looking for a later carb.
  4. Many thanks you for your information much appreciated, hopefully it will be similar to the Dodge.
  5. Would anyone have knowledge of removing the sump from a 1931 CD8 281c.i. without removing the engine from the car? There appears to be a cross-member at the rear end with a rubber stripped bracket that covers part of the sump, if I remove the bracket will the sump slide back enough to remove? any help appreciated.

  7. Can anyone advise me please! On overhauling a Stromberg DXC-3 carb. for my 1931 Chrysler CD8 Deluxe convertible coupe I noticed that there is a threaded hole in the base of the fuel bowl which leads into a metering jet. The thread doesn't appear to have been used so I wonder what should be there (if anything).
  8. Thank you Matt, you've filled me with enthusiasm after some doubts about buying the car!
  9. Thanks for your reply and detailed photos, I am at present in the process of buying the car but will be in touch if there is a differential problem. Regards Vic
  10. Thank you for the information, I am in the process of buying this CD8 and wanted to find out what comfortable cruising speed I can expect. Since posting I see that I didn't mention it was a convertible which possibly has a slightly higher ratio, also I now have the engine number from which I have found it is the 282cu.i. model with 4 speed box. Regards Vic
  11. I am trying to fine the rear axle ratio of a 1931CD8 Convertible Coupe with the 282cu.i. engine and 4 speed box Does anyone having the answer?
  12. I used to own this unique car! If you wish to know more of it's history please contact me. There was an article about it in the AACA magazine in the early 1980's.
