  1. I have a 1928 chrysler 4 door sedan 4 cyl. engine, model 52. To start my car I have to retard my spark[ left leaver in down position] once the car starts I advance[all the way up] to drive the car. I have a model A, which is just the other way around. Since yours is a model 72, it may be different, if I try and start with the leaver up, it drags as if I have a dead battery....HOPE THIS HELPS:)
  2. I Have a model 52, I changed over to an electric fuel pump when I expericed vapor lock, with the electric pump I have had no more trouble, been driving the car for years. I Left the tank on the fire wall for appearce only, ran fuel line under it, looks like its hooked up...Just my 2Cents worth.[bought the pump at napa store]
  3. I seen your ad. on the forum..was just wondering what model 28 chrysler do u have. I have a restored 1928 model 52 ..4 door sedan that I restore in 2002. I have not seen any other model 52 on the forum, was just wondering if that is what u have. my e-mail miklassr8@msn.com Jerry in wheeling wva.
  4. I had my chrysler 1928 model 52 with stainless, about $50.00 per wheel. Works Great. The Master was around $75.00
  5. I Have a 28 chrysler 4 cyl. I just got plugs from snyders antique parts for a model A . Ford, these plugs work just fine.
  6. Jay had same problen a few years back, got dirt in the carburator, cleaned out carb and put screen in fuel line, problem solved 1931 Model A Roadster 1928 Chrysler Model '52'
  7. I USED THIS IDEA AND IT WORKED. USE A SMALL MAG FLASHLIGHT PUT IT AGAINST THE INSIDE OF THE FRAME, THE LIGHT WILL SHINE ON THE INSIDE OF THE APRON, MARK CENTER OF BEAM WITH A DOT OF WHITE PAINT OR SOMETHING U CAN SEE. PLACE PUNCH THRU HOLE TAP WITH HAMMER, U NOW HAVE A CENTER MARK. I THEN TOOK A PEICE A CARDBOARD AND USED THE GROMMLET FOR A PATTERN, DREW A CIRCLE CUT OUT WITH SISSORS PLACED ON OUT SIDE OF APRON, DREW MY CIRCLE, DRILLED HOLE, USED FILE AND GOT THE PROPER HOLE THAT WAS NEEDED FOR TIRE MOUNT. YOU DO HAVE ROOM FOR ERROR AS THE GROMMLET IS LARGE TO COVER ANY MISTAKES. WORKED FOR ME AND I ANSWERED MY OWN QUESTION. THERE IS NO TEMPLLATE OUT THERE AND THIS WORKED FOR ME.
  8. I Have the fender wells done, does anyone know if there is a template or do they know how to measure for the tire mounts that fit the frame where to cut the hole comming thru the apron on a 1931 Model A delux roadster.
  9. Could u post some pictures, and how do u know its a model 58, I have a 1928 model 52. Do u know if it would be the same.
  10. Just a quick note; Be sure and number spokes for each wheel and keep seperate, so when u put back together each spoke will match the next one. I did my 28 chrysler this way, except for the 1st wheel, and 3 went together nicley, and the 4th one took a while. So far so good ive been driving the car for about 8 years, and no problems.
  11. Check to be sure u are not having an exhaust leak wher it hooks to manafold. My Model A was sucking air and wow what a back fire. After sealing exhaust I no longer have the problem.
  12. I had my 28 chrysler model 52 glass all replaced., about 10 years ago, any windsheild/glass place can do the job, if i rember correctly the wind sheild cost about $100.00 and i installed myself. about $25.00 for each side glass, and i also installed myself. {it is safty glass]
  13. Can any one tell me where i can get a key blank or an extra key made for the pop out switch on a 31 model A. antiquepa @ miklassr8@msn.com
  14. You still charge the battery neg..to..neg pos..to pos regardless of how its grounded to the car. as far as charging an 8volt battery.. not sure. but i would think it would be best to charge at the 6 volt rate, as if u used the 12volt it would be the same a overcharging a battery..just my opinion. antiquepaw
  15. Can u post picture of the wheel. measure the wheel , and post or e-mail to me. i may be insterested in the wheel. my e-mail address.....miklassr8@msn.com thanks, antiquepaw
