  1. The 1929 Chrysler Imperial came with spring covers as standard equipment. Does anyone know if they were metal or leather? Thanks
  2. Thanks to all of you for your help. The grease question is a good one that I haven't tried and will. The water flow into the top tank is "robust" so the issue of air being sucked into the system from the water pump seems very likely. As I mentioned in the post, when I drained the antifreeze l didn't do a thorough flush that I will now do. That will eliminate the antifreeze as the cause of the problem.
  3. I have had trouble with foam in the cooling system that at times comes out from the radiator cap. It an open cooling system, the engine has good compression, the radiator core and bottom tank are new, the water pump is in good condition and has good packing, there are no leaks in the hoses or elsewhere, no water in the oil, and no oil in the radiator. I took the antifreeze out but did not flush out the system, and replaced it with water and a can of standard anti rust and water pump lube. This did not fix the problem, there was still foam. Has anyone else had this problem or can suggest a fix? I am currently thinking of trying No-Rosion and start with their flush product. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
  4. THANKS for the warning! I got an email from Squier in response to my looking for a Purolator SA 2. I responded to "Karen" by email but was suspicious and tried to looked up Squier who was the AACA contact and here I am.
  5. I'm looking for a foaming solution and just came across this discussion. I contacted Evans, they use propylene glycol without water for racing and high performance engines. They said their antifreeze would not stop the foaming issues. They said they had researched the cause of the foaming and that they believed it was the packing on the water pump of non pressurized systems that was allowing air in. The grease cup was not mentioned.
  6. Thanks. There was a similar one being reproduced for Buicks a few years ago that had both supply and return on the top of the tank, so it couldn't substitute for the SA 2. You'd think there was enough demand to make it practical for someone to reproduce them.
  7. It seems like there are a lot of us looking for a Purolator SA 2 oil filter. They were used in many 20'-30's cars and I wonder if they are being reproduced by anyone. This is a picture of one. Oil connections are on the top and bottom of the can.

  9. What a great meet! I never cease to marvel at the amount of organization and work it takes to put on one of these events. Among many things that were well-done I was pleased and impressed when on this wickedly hot day volunteers were going around giving out bottles of ice-cold water in the afternoon. This is also a great venue for the meet. Congratulations Chesapeake region I really enjoyed it.
  10. My car uses 700x18 "6 ply" tires. These are basically truck tires and correct for the car and unfortunately balancing is always an issue. I'd like to know what you think of the balance beads, how they are installed when using a tube and if you can recommend a brand or say where you got them. Thanks, Steve
  11. Thanks, it's very helpful and I'll share it with several people who are interested.
  12. Can anyone suggest a source for the correct color engine enamel for the 1929 Chrysler Imperial L80? In a much earlier post a color was suggested for the 1930 Imperial that looks close. Does anyone know if the 1929 and 1930 engines were the same color? Thanks
  13. Pete, if you are still looking for a generator for your model 65 Jay Astheimer has been a good source of parts and information. His number is 610 462 3631.
