  1. Exactly right. The underside of the head had a tighter fit area for combustion. The first aluminum heads I believe were available for the 34 Airflows.
  2. I have a whole bunch of new head gaskets for 31s. I will look at them and see if I have the one you need. Greg
  3. I have some 1936 C-8 parts for sale. I have them on ebay right now. Included are an exhaust and intake manifold with carb; clutch disc, pressure plate, throwout fork; spark plug wire loom; flywheel cover; and fuel pump. Not listed on ebay but available is an engine head, and an overdrive transmission with shifter. If anything doesn't sell on ebay, email me and they will be available. Prices are negotiable. I bought all this extra "stuff" years ago and do not need it anymore. The manifolds are very nice. The heat riser is not stuck, nor is the choke assembly on the carburetor. Email is Impconsent@aol.com. Thanks,' Greg
  4. The best and only real detailed guide is the owners manual for a 31 Chrysler. Otherwise, some of us who have helped you out already are the only other sources. Greg
  5. I like to think I am very good at identifying these two cars, but I must admit, if you are looking at only one at a time, it can be difficult to tell the difference, especially depending on the angle you are looking at. From the front, the easiest difference is the bumper medallions, like Dan already mentioned. They are very different and easy to spot. The CH is a much larger car, yet from the rear it is hard to tell from the CP. They use the same taillights and taillight stands. The hubcaps say Chrysler Imperial on the CH, where the CP caps say Chrysler Eight. Unfortunately most photographs are not detailed enough to read the hubcaps. Both are beautiful cars, but I like my CH's better. It is also hard to tell a 31 CD Deluxe sedan from a 32 CP. I won't get into that, except again, the bumpers give it away. Greg
  6. Yes, they are specific to 34 Airflow but there must be one out there somewhere. I won't give up!!!
  7. The museum is in Isanti, MN, a small town about 30 miles north of Minneapolis. It is called "The Old Chrysler Garage." Contains 14 pre-war Chryslers, (one is a 48), a lot of the old dealership signage and a bunch of memorabilia. The building was built in 1918, was a Willys-Overland dealership, which WPC was in charge of the corp. in 1920- 21, so it has a Chrysler history. I am open Thursday-Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. I only collect Chryslers, no Dodges, etc. I like them all but had to stay with one name to keep from going broke over the years. It's a lot of fun to talk to old car enthusiasts every day, and I have met so many nice people, including some with Chrysler corporation history. I'm on Facebook, The Old Chrysler Garage.
  8. Thanks for the heads up. I will check it out.
  9. I need to have the very first Chrysler magazine ad for my Chrysler museum in Isanti, MN. According to the biography written on Walter Chrysler, in a book by Cursio, the first ad was in the Saturday Evening Post dated December 8, 1923, and it was a two page ad. Anyone have it and would be willing to sell or donate it? Thanks, Greg Biskey

  11. I mistakenly said the cap that Keiser pictured was correct for your Imperial. It is the right style dustcap, but the Imperials were larger. Nothing from any other Chrysler or Dodge will fit your Imperial axle. The drums, brake shoes, etc. were all larger. I believe a cap would work from a '32 CL or CH Imperial also. I have not had a chance to see if I have any yet to sell. I will try to see in the next couple of weeks. My spare axle is a CH.
  12. I will be bringing Chrysler parts to Hershey, mostly 30's stuff. No Dodge or Plymouth, just Chrysler. Our spot is GCH-24-26. Greg
  13. Try to find the book, "The 70 Years of Chrysler." They show up on ebay once in awhile. Very informative and lots of pictures and data. Greg
  14. Odyssey Restorations in Spring Lake Park, Minnesota fixed my 24 Chrysler, same problem as you have. The original bushing swelled and they replaced it with a brass one and the steering is great. Greg
