    broken distributor cap

    Forgot to add that I would contact the mfg. tech. dept. to advise on how to use it for this purpose before buying it.

    broken distributor cap

    Look at Amazon for The Last Glue, I've had very good luck repairing broken tool housings with it, I used it to glue bakelite dist. cap for a 1930 Chrysler. Not a cheap glue, about $30 an ounce. How much is a new cap?

    Well, I have good news! The grease was from a poor fitting outer axle seal and not the inner seals. The eight mounting holes were out of line with the center of the seal. The metal of the seal was rubbing the hub so hard that the rubber seal was pushed way up and letting the grease leak. Do not buy the pressed out sheet metal bearing housing that have a lip seal in them, buy ones turned on a lathe so everything is concentric. I was lucky enough to find a few NOS outer seals for the car so I won't have to have new housings turned. ( unless I can't get the NOS rubber seals to soften up! ) Thanks to all for the input and advice .

    Thanks for the input. I was an assembly foreman before I retired. One of my departments built the clutch and driveshaft assemblies for large metal forming presses, and the gearboxes for right angle drives. I feel comfortable that I can rebuild the axle after I locate the parts. Wouldn't good prints be great !!?? Again, thanks for the input, any experience and knowledge is appreciated. A friend in the Northeast gave me the seal information.

    Chrysler # 304004 Might have to wait until I remove the leaking seal and take it to a bearing company to match it up ( Bearings Inc. )

    Anyone know of a replacement seal? I've got to start reading what I type before I send it !!!

    I plan on replacing the inner seals also. I have located some nos outer seals and a couple inner seals. The outer seals are very hard and I'll have to try to soften them. Anyone a replacement seal for a National Seal # 5156 or Victor # 26031, they replaced the Chrysler inner seal. I want to use modern inner seals if I can find them. I will be replacing the brake linings too.

    Thanks John and dep5. The one's that dep5 made look just like the ones I'm having quoted at the machine shop. I texted the people John mentioned.

    Haven't been able to find new outer axle seals for our model 70 coupe, so I'm having some seal housings made at a local machine shop. Mine leaked and ruined the brake linings on the real axle. I had a set of reproduction seals on the car and the mounting holes were out of line with the center of the modern seal and caused them to leak. Chrysler part number for original seals 304009 Victor seal # 26031. Anyone else have the same problem?

    Carburetor for 1930 Model 77 Chrysler Sedan

    Check out Daytona Carburetors, they have a replacement modern one for the 1930 Chryslers that used the DX3.

    Leatherette Source?

    Check out a material called RAVE, looks and feels like leather. Made by Spradling International.
  13. I had a rattle in my 1930 Chrysler, only at certain speeds. My friend , a retired mechanic, and I couldn't find it. On day I noticed the water pump pulley had a slight wobble . The bore in the pulley was egged out a little. Had it bored and bushed and the noise went away.

    My mother was in her 80's with dementia when the local bank gave her a large 30 year loan on her home. She sent the money overseas by Western Union at $9,999.99 checks. Under 10 grand so it wasn't reported. Bank said they knew something was wrong but Heppa rules prevented them from sounding an alarm to us. She lost everything. They were never caught and our government sends millions of dollars in aid to the country they were from. Channel 2 news did a special about her problem ( and she was mad at us & embarrassed ) Keep a close eye on elderly friends and family, scammers are everywhere!
