1931 Chrysler CD8 Sump Removal

Recommended Posts

Would anyone have knowledge of removing the sump from a 1931 CD8 281c.i. without removing the engine from  the car?   There appears to be a cross-member at the rear end with a rubber stripped bracket that covers part of the sump, if I remove the bracket will the sump slide back enough to remove? any help appreciated.

It sounds like the setup on my 32 Dodge Brothers DL.  You have to remove the cross member to remove the sump  pan.  It's a good idea to place a support under the transmission to keep from putting too much stress on the other rubber mounts if it's anything like my car.  Just drop the cross member and you'll have full access to the sump bolts.  If you have a torsion leaf spring that goes from the bell housing to the frame, you'll have to remove that assembly, too.
