  1. When I came home from overseas, I put several items in a box. Each one was wrapped and had my home address on it, these were put in a box with my address on it in large block letters, this box was inside another box that was addressed. This was a large box and they lost it! Had large jade statues, 2 bolts of pure silk, and about 24 rolls of exposed 35 mm film. All lost, they offered me next to nothing for my loss and paid my just what I paid. I'd say they x rayed the box and knew what was in it.
  2. These seals sometimes cut grooves in the wheel hub and grease could leak in the brake drums, mine did. I was able to install speedi-sleeves on the hubs that the seals grooved. Then I removed my old damaged leather seals and fit new lip seals in the original seal housings. No leaks.
  3. I don't know how much I paid because I had a restoration shop do the whole car. If you are in or close to Ohio I can recommend some people. Do you have a shop that does soda blasting? Might want to check with them. If you take the wheels apart you have to assemble them just like they came apart. number the spokes. A press was used to assemble the spokes in the rim. My wheels were not taken apart when refinished.
  4. Most parking lots have cameras, did you check with Walmart? My son in laws garage was broken into and tools and mowers were taken. There is a parking lot behind his garge that belongs to the police dept. Got them on tape!
  5. Forgot to tell you we have two model 70's built in 1929. A Royal Coupe and a Brougham. Brougham is all original and the coupe is a concours show winner. We have never seen another Model 70 Brougham.
  6. I did away with the rope packing on my 1930 Chryslers. I had the part the gland nut screws on to accept a lip seal. Haven't had a leak yet! And, you can't see the seal, pump looks original. I have pictures if your interested and send me an email address. timandjuliawolfe1@roadrunner.com
  7. Do you have all the old parts for patterns? Steve Glazier in Houston, Ohio does awesome work on old Chrysler cars. gpcwsteveg@centurylink.net Glazier Pattern & Coach 3720 Loramie Washington Road Houston, Ohio 45333 937-492-7355 I know he does wood working for a few restoration shops, and his work has won many awards. Tell him Tim Wolfe sent you!
  8. Looks like the one I had for a 1930 Chrysler 70
  9. Somewhere I read about a place to order a split shell for different fan sizes and radiators. I wish my car had one but I do point shows.
  10. Restoration shop used paint stripper then diluted bleach and the wood spokes look new.
  11. If you look up the balance bead and find their web site, they will tell you how many to put in and how to do it. Had to remove the valve stem and use a bottle with a nozzle to install them. They suggested holding a dremel tool against the valve stem to help shake the beads and get them to flow. Took our car out for a drive today.
  12. You might be interested in reading about balance beads. I used them on my 1930 Chryslers and I'm pleased with the results.
  13. Can you remove the top hinge bolt and then pull it forward to remove the spring while it is under some tension? The bottom hole is slotted to remove the bottom bolt.
  14. I just talked to him a few weeks back, he's still selling parts.
  15. Not necessarily, early production model 70's had a pennon louvered hood too.
