  1. eBay listing https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/283858192605?hash=item42174448dd:g:AZcAAOSwJrdeo2Qc
  2. Morse Timing Chain No 803 1 & 1/4inch wide centre rail 79 links I've attached photos of a Chrysler 75 timing chain which is shorter than the imperial.
  3. Irrespective of your diff ratio, your car should be able to achieve better than 30mph. My first thought is that something is wrong with the engine.
  4. My preference is to use Dot 5 if the car is not going to be used regularly. I always use Dot 3 in my daily driver. Dot 5 will affect pressure brake switches. I've found no difference in the driving of a car with either 3 or 5. To me the brakes feel the same.
  5. To the best of my knowledge, all of the export 75 roadsters had a folding windscreen. Typically with Chryslers, the lower level models were available for locally built bodies, but the bigger cars were not. There are 1929 Model 65s in Australia with Holden bodies, but the 75s and imperial 80s were all imported.
  6. If you are wanting an early Mopar, I know this car has been around a while but it was a very well built car and very reliable. The 75's are great to drive and hydraulic brakes make them stop along with the modern traffic. I haven't seen the Les's car since the mid 90's but I would assume it is still as good now as then.
  7. Originally restored by Les Smith in Shepparton. Absolutely beautiful car. Manifold and gearbox are from a 1930 model not original to the 1929. They were fitted for better driveability. Lanes Melbourne sold the car when new. All model 75s in Australia were fully imported and not fitted with TJRichards bodies.
  8. shock absorber, modified to act as steering damper. Mine had something similar.
  9. Any body able to tell me the correct part number for the headlight lens for a 1929 Chrysler 75? I'm going to have a search thru some lenses on the weekend and hopefully will find the correct lens.
  10. Your best bet is a 12volt to 6 volt step down converter that will supply 30 amps. https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Waterproof-DC-DC-Converter-Regulator-12V-24V-Step-Down-to-6V-30A-180W/141929142470?hash=item210ba2d8c6:g:IlsAAOSwz2pfQ05B This will do the job. There are 40 amp units available as well if you need more grunt. Do not use a resistor. It just becomes a fire hazard.
  11. The cars I know of use the same handle that opens the golf club door on the side.
  12. The small door is unlocked with the handle underneath. The large door is unlocked with a removable handle. It should have a U shaped handle to pull the door open. The locking bolt protrudes from the large door into the small door. The small door has two lock bolts which engage with the sides of the car.
  13. I've seen a lot of the top handles on Australian built cars. It could be that the top handle was used by TJRichards, and the bottom handle US built cars.
  14. Not really possible to tell because of the angle of the camera. In each photo the seat closest to the camera will always appear larger.
