  1. Thanks for your replies. Yes I rather like the wooden spoke wheels, the car isn’t original , it was cut down into a roadster pick up many years ago and the wooden wheels suit it. There is a wheel wright down here which I will contact and take it from there, in the mean time the offending wheel has had the ethylene glycol treatment
  2. I have wooden spoke wheels which have some slight movement where the small round section of the spoke goes into the steel rim . Trying to decide which way to go, have them rebuilt or change to wire wheels . Is it possible to find brake drum / hub assemblies and wire wheels . Any thoughts / ideas would be appreciated, thanks
  3. c49er . Your last photo is the filter housing which I have , but the center part had no metal pipe. Some one has obviously changed it in the past . I would like one of those if any one has a spare. Thanks for all the help guys.
  4. My filter has the anti drain back flap in it , the oil is draining back through the center hole . I have fitted a pipe into the steel fitting which the filter screws onto , it extends up into the filter about 3 ins, so this should fix the problem.
  5. Yes that is the same as mine , I guess a previous owner has changed it.
  6. The filter is a modern screw on type which screws down onto the the housing ., ( up side down ) possibly off an industrial engine ? c49er the lower part of my housing is like your photo ,but the top section is flat with a steel fitting which the filter screws on to. Thank you for all the replies
  7. c49 er. -- Grimy Yes that is what I have . I think some thing is missing . If I remove the filter after the car has been sitting over night it has drained out ,---- completely empty. If there is no drain back valve available I intend to fit a piece of 7/16 tube into the steel fitting the filter screws on to, about 4in long , which will extend up inside the center of the filter and stop the oil from draining out.
  8. Rusty Thanks for your reply. I am concerned the filter will drain when the engine is switch off and will need to refill , therefore taking longer to get oil to the bearings etc when re started.
  9. I have a 251 cu in. 6 cyl engine with a full flow oil filter which screws on to an aluminium housing . Should there be a valve to stop the filter draining when the engine is not running.
  10. Viv Thank you for your reply , l value your thoughts and suggestions. This is my first Chrysler, you are right they used many parts which do not interchange between the various models. I have much to learn. Barry
  11. WTB Chrysler 72 3.58 rear end gears , ring and pinion or complete center . Would need to be shipped to CA if available in USA . Come on guys, someone must be able to help , I would consider other ratios between 3.5 and 4.3 to 1 Thanks
  12. Spinneyhill. Thank you , I also thought it would be a simple straight forward task, but alas it is not to be.
  13. I checked the chrome shaft , it is .865 ( .010 to small, loose In the stub ) So back to the search. Needs to be ground finish to .875. So where to buy this in NZ ?
  14. Spinneyhill your king pins appear to be very similar to my 29 Chrysler.Very complicated way to remove the cotter pin , normally a hammer and punch will shift them.My thrust bearings are the same, they cleaned up and feel good so will be re used, I bought bronze bushes from the local bearing suppliers, drilled the hole and used the die grinder to make a small spiral groove for the grease. Intending to make my own king pins, can source some 7/8 chromed medium tensile shaft, but not sure if this is suitable, what do you think?
  15. Sasha39 Thank you, just what I needed , it all makes sense now.
