  1. 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
  2. As usual, you perfectly answered my questions. Thank you again. I will give you update of the engine very soon! Alain
  3. 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
  4. 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 !
  5. 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
  6. Great, thanks for your reply. I will have a look on it. Have a good week end Alain
  7. Hello, First of all Happy new year and thanks a lot for your support. There is now more than one year I started to get a "new old" Chrysler roadster E65 of 1929 from a heap of blended parts and it is getting on not so badly! Today I have a riddle for you: What are these two parts ? And do you know where they go? See pictures (the ruler is in cm, parts are around 2 cm long) Thanks to all Bonus: a picture of the car to let you know where I am! Alain
  8. Hi, a little history from Alain... I am in my 60's and I live near by Rouen, between Paris and D-Day landing beaches (1h30 by car). Concerning my Chrysler Roadster E65 1929 please find it before it has been disassembly. Then I bought it, and I completely disassembled. Here is ours movers the day of buying. With my brother in law kind of mechanic and me (Alain) former joiner, we assemble the car. Alain Claude, brother in law & mechanic at same time ! We are working on brakes and then after we will start on engine; we are waiting pistons & rings. Cylinder head has been modified with a gap of 3/10 mm, we got cylinder head gasket from US. This is an actual imagine of the Chrysler: Thanks to all of you for the valuable information you bring me and the quick answers. Is to believe you never sleep! Bernie for information I don't know this expression literary translated by "seins sur un taureau" but if you could explain in which circumstance and what means this expression I am sure we have equivalent in french! Before, I renovated a 2 CV Citroen of 1982. Originally I got 2 cars: The result of these (one blue and one red) didn't made violet but... Today it is yellow ! Maximum speed 90 km/h (around 55 miles/h )
  9. Hi there, I wanted to know if it was possible to disassemble oil filter on Chrysler E65 (1929) (and how ?), or is it better to change it (and where?). Thanks in advance Ludovic
  10. Hi, thanks to all for your help, I am not at home for the moment and will be back next week (I am on holidays with madame, unfortunately for her she still hears me chatting about my car!). From my memory I don't have any electrical connection behind this levers, but I will confirm this next week. Any that's full of good information! As soon as I will be back I will dismount more and compare with drawing and pictures. Thanks to all again and write again next week.
  11. Hello, I have a question about Chrysler E65 (1929) steering wheel. I believe there are 3 different levers with theirs rings. See picture of my steering wheel. Do you know what they are used to? Probably one is used for the starter what about others? Mine are broken or missing, anyone knows where to buy some? Thanks in advance. Ludovic

  14. Hello, I have a Chrysler roadster E65 produced in 1929 but the engine is a 1928 manufactured. I started to restore the engine however when it will be time to close it I will need to know the clamping rate of the cylinder head bolt? I will need as well the game for the adjustment of the rockers? Thank you in advance Alain
