  1. Hi there, thanks for the reply. As mention by Sasha39 I am Ludovic living in France and Alain (Chrysler owner) is my father in law living in France as well, but at 900 km from my house! This is the reason why you find signature as Ludovic, Alain or Ludovic & Alain. Finally it is only me (Ludovic) who write message, and sometime Alain is using Google translate to read but prefers my translated email ! I am his official translator so before posting I need his directive ! And sometimes he is too busy or directive are not clear but 🤫 ! All these reasons make my replies sometimes a bit long. As I was thinking, it is a great opportunity to get original FEDCO serial number if you don't use it anymore. Alain is very interested. It is possible to get picture and a price ? Best regards Ludovic
  2. Hi Sasha, thanks for the link ! Just to inform you except administrative paper, electrical circuit is still under renovation on the car and I asked someone to get the hood (soft top) renovated as well. My car is already painted, as soon as soft top will be installed I will post picture. Thanks again to the community! Ludovic and Alain
  3. Hello, My Chrysler E65 (1929) renovation is almost finished, I am to finish some small details but the biggest difficulty is administrative paper ! In order to get Chrysler administration paper to drive my Chrysler on the road, administration ask me a picture of my Serial Number plate. However the problem is I don't have this part. I do not have the FEDCO plate, a solution can be to make a new one, for example like they used on a 1925 Chrysler on the firewall but I need a model ! Does anyone have a part SN plate not in use? Thank you Alain
  4. Dear all, We well received the speedometer from "Oregon Desert model 45" and it fit perfectly. We are pleased to received a parcel very well packed up. Thanks a lot Ludovic
  5. Hi broker-len unfortunately I am looking for working speedo and odometer. Thanks again Alain
  6. Hi Sasha, thank you for the tips, I had completely forgot this solution ! I sent a message to "Oregon Desert model 45". Alain
  7. Good morning all, effectively as said by "Sasha39", Alain does not speak English. I am his sin in law, my name is Ludovic and I am also his particular translator because we French! My wife allows me to spend time helping her father at distance despite my many trips a week! Alain lives in north of France and me in south. "Broker-len" we did not understand your post, does your speedo and trip mileage work? "Oregon Desert", we are interested in your meter, we would like to contact you directly by e-mail if possible? "Narve" did you get time to look at your counters and the bumper? Thanks again to all of you and many apologies for our late responses -> (personal message from Ludovic) Alain
  8. Hi, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I need to change it as the inner parts are broken, it is not turning anymore. I didn't know about the model A compatibility, that's a good news! I will have a look on this solution... Viv w, I don't know Snyders or Mac's, do you have a address, please? For all for the tips's Alain
  9. Hello, restoration of my Chrysler E65 (1929) is going well, engine is almost completed! At same time, I am working on dashboard. And it appeared that my odometer is broken (see picture). Does anybody has a spare part ? Or knows where to find one? Thanks a lot Alain
  10. Hi there, for those who follow my adventure in Chrysler E65 (1929) renovation, a little present for you : actual stat of the Chrysler renovation picture... Furthermore another question again : I have a oil duct with a spring and it is connected to the crank shaft (see picture). My problem is I don't know how it works exactly and so how to adjust it? What is it used for ? And finally how do I adjust it in depth? Thanks in advance Alain
  11. As usual, you perfectly answered my questions. Thank you again. I will give you update of the engine very soon! Alain
  12. Hi there, I fit new pistons in cylinder and I'm now ready to close the engine. However first if all I want to double check something. Months ago Sasha sent me doc name:"Torque chart for cylinder head and bearing installation". On it I could find : the stud torques which is 60-70 ft.lbs is that correct? but could really find the head tightening sequence, I am afraid qulity is not good enought for tired eyes ! Do you have it please? should we tight bold in only one sequence or smoothly increase torques of "X" sequences ? Then should double check tight after "X" kilometers ? Thanks to you all. Alain
  13. Hi, and first of all thank you very much to all of you, and well done for all your knowledge and your quick answers ! I confirm about the part Oil throw disc (50053) I have it and I see where it goes! Now I have additional questions: just to confirm there is no seal on the crankshaft support bearing on the clutch side, if I understand correctly the oil that passes and goes back into the oil pane ? Do you know what are the use of the two long joints of square section? and where do they go ? Same for the round joint? What is the purpose and where does it go? Thanks again from the sunny Normandy !
  14. Hi there, I started to re-build engine on my 1929 Chrysler roadster E65. For now everything went well, however I have few questions: is it necessary to have a seal in the crankshaft support end bushings ? Is there a seal between the crankshaft pulley and the crankcase? what is the purpose of the steering wheel attached to the pulley, this steering wheel is in two parts with springs between the two parts ? I made the valve stem settings at 1.5 for the intake and 2 for the exhaust. Is this correct? Thanks in advance Alain
  15. Great, thanks for your reply. I will have a look on it. Have a good week end Alain
