  1. Hi Tim, do you have any pictures? will it fit a Carter BB-1 thanks Tim
  2. Hi Dana, take a look at the attached files. you should find the torque settings your looking for. Tim B
  3. If you're located in the Pacific Northwest you should take it to Johnnies, I did. He machined my 1930 cj motor and was very pleased with the work. Johnnies Machine 2121 Westlake Ave Seattle, WA 98121 206-621-1940 If you need Gaskets try Olson Gaskets, Port Orchard WA I also have a 1929 65 motor needing some parts do you have spares? Tim
  4. Hi all, I'm looking for a "brass oil pump gear" for a 1930 Chrysler CJ motor. Any ideas of where to find one? I the one I have has some excessive play in it. Thanks Tim
  5. for the head gasket you may want to try Olson Gaskets, Port Orchard WA (Sandy (owner)) (360) 871-1207 info@olsonsgaskets.com 3059 Opdal Rd E Port Orchard, WA 98366
  6. CJ20565 --- engine stamped number 310229-1 --- engine casting number A1 22.3 --- engine casting number Engine is all torn down. Here are my findings if you?re interested. After pulling off the FRONT engine support of the CJ motor, I checked it to my frame and it doesn?t fit. I have some documentation that states the CJ motor for a SHORT time (how short I don't know) was used in the 1930 model 66 car. Maybe the documentation is wrong or I just need a different front engine support. Overall the engine is pretty good. Once in the machine shop they let me know if any thing is of issue. Measuring the deck heights it appears the block is concaved from piston 1 to 6 or there is some other issue like piston sizes or rod lengths. On piston 3 & 4 the deck height is pretty low. I plan on decking the block so I?m hoping there is enough metal available to deck it. I haven?t checked the head yet so I don?t know its condition yet (whether it can be shaved). The crankshaft end-play appeared normal. Piston removal was fine except for piston #2 which I removed after removing the crankshaft by pulling thru inside of the block. The wear on #2 cylinder prevented from pulling the piston up and out as normally done. The camshaft has a non-metal gear which I didn?t know they did this in those years (interesting). The camshaft end-play seems excessive but I?m checking on that. Camshaft lobe wear seems ok and can be cleaned up, the shop will let me know. Lifters seem excessive on the wear so not sure if they are within tolerances. A few valves are going to be close if they can be ground again. Two valve springs look out-of-wack in size compared to all others (interesting). The BAD area of the motor was when the freeze plugs were pulled. The block was over 50% blocked in the water jackets with sediment. It was three inches of sediment at the rear of the motor. This may/must have been causing over heating issues with the motor, which may have contributed to poor running and ? I have been told that line-boring this motor for modern type bearings is NOT going to work due to the main bearing caps shape and sizes. I am researching this
  7. Hi gang, What are the weak areas to keep an eye on when rebuilding a 1930 chrys CJ (6) motor? Any insight on rebuilding these old ones is appreciated. I plan on going thru the whole motor prior to installing in my car. one example- should I babbitt the bearings or line-bore and move to a more modern bearing? thanks Tim tim_byerly@hotmail.com
  8. any pictures can be sent to tim_byerly@msn.com please place chrysler in the subject/title line I get a lot of spam emails and wouldn't want to loose any picture that are sent. thanks Tim
  9. pictures are sent, let me know if you need anything else? I'll look for additional #'s on the engine. I'm trying to identify this motor so I can sell it. Cheers Tim
  10. anyone have "Hollander" interchange manual for the 50's that can verify this?
  11. Tim- The engine in the picture is a postwar Chrysler 6 cylinder L head engine. It could be for a Dodge, Desoto, Plymouth or small Chrysler. All the blocks on these cars were pretty near identical with the only difference being slight changes in bore and stroke. By the looks of the carburetor it is probably a very recent ( 1950's ) Chrysler product. If you can get a hold of a "Hollander" interchange manual you should be able to quickly identify make, model, and year, as there is a lot of published information on postwar car parts. Good luck! Bill (I can send a picture if that helps)
  12. I have an engine with the following numbers and not sure what it is. A few pictures if anyone needs them. It's not original to my 30 Chrys(66) car. Can anyone help? (all numbers on engine) LPo*39209* -- (block stamped #) 1484929-3 -- (block casting #) 58 -- (block casting #) 1676337-2 -- (cyl head casting #) 11-25 -- (cyl head casting #) It has a trans with these numbers. (maybe this will help indentifying the engine) 579298-6 -- (bell housing # right side) 10-23-50 -- (bell housing # right side) s81 -- (bell housing #) c 39701 -- (Case # side) c 39896 -- (Case # top) Thanks Tim
  13. thanks! If I can help in any way let me know. Tim
  14. Hi All, I'm looking for some pictures of what the wood framing looks like that supports the rumble seat in a 1930 Chrys model 66. I probably missing two or three supports and I don't know what they look like. Can anyone help? cheers! Tim
