  1. Addendum: A digital caliper was used to measure the diameter of my rear hub and it read 2.496 so I have to challenge the information posted by Sasha39 (please don't take offense). It appears that my rear hubs are 2 1/2 inches wide 16 TPI and not 2 3/8 inches wide 16 TPI. I've also heard from an knowledgeable third party who claims that information is not accurate. This is the reason my puller does not thread on to my hubs.......
  2. Hi Vintageben, something came up when I was discussing this. Does this "insert" for lack of a better word fit into the bottom windshield frame which sits on the cowl and does that cowl frame have a straight piece which goes over the insert and under the rectangle windshield or does the windshield rectangle just sit on the insert?
  3. Hi HarryLime, I'm in New Jersey. It's not a crisis now because my wheels are off and are in the restoration stage. However, it would sooth my mind to know why this %#@&% puller does not thread on. I tried to bring it to a local machine shop for a diagnosis and was turned away, too busy for that stuff. Now I feel I can't trust another one to fit unless I try it before I buy it!
  4. Now this really vexes me. After months of looking for a correct hub puller for my 1928 Chrysler Model 72 with wooden spoke wheels, I find one, 2 3/8 diameter 16 TPI (yes I measured it with a thread pitch gauge) and it will NOT thread onto my hubs. I don't know if the threads on the hubs or the threads on the puller are buggered but I can say the hub caps screw onto the wheel hubs with no problems. Has anyone else encountered this?
  5. Hi Calm, yes the right idea unfortunately the wrong years. It appears I'm going to have to make one by a place that bends metal tubing, maybe a muffler shop.
  6. In my own experiences with my 1928 Chrysler Model 72 with artillery wheels the style looks the same but there subtle shape and thread differences. My front caps have a different thread than my rear ones and I don't know if other models have their own thread differences. I've gone through a pile of these hub caps at Jay Astheimer's place and found them to all look similar with the same face and "C" but not be the same.
  7. Hey Keiser31, what do your cables look like?
  8. Regarding the battery connections, does anyone have a photo or know where the positive ground strap is attached and negative cable is routed? Also, what these two look like?
  9. Hey Vintageben, I'm embarrassed to say I did not look in my manual first but I think I really misstated my question. What I'm looking for is a description of how to properly replace the kingpin and bushings.
  10. I have a little back and forth movement in my brake backing plate from top to bottom indicating wear in my kingpins. I need to find replacement parts but also a diagram of what they look like and any other information would be most helpful.
  11. You will see in the photo that a metal pipe is connected to the water pump and radiator by 2 separate hoses. This pipe is not common to all Chrysler engines of this era. Does anyone have a diagram of it's dimensions or know of anyone who makes reproductions?

    Mounting tires

    Interesting topic, I just called Universal Vintage Tire Co. Hershey PA about buying 5 tires for my 1928 Chrysler 600/650 - 18. The negotiations went well until I asked about mounting the tires on split ring/locking ring wheels. Sorry no can do was the answer. Now do these people expect someone to spend over 1000 dollars for tires, tubes and flaps and have to personally mount them or take them someplace else to have it done? Really? I live in New Jersey, can someone recommend a tire business within a reasonable drive which will not only sell me the tires I require but also do the unthinkab
  13. Is your engine a 4 or a 6 cylinder?
