Chrysler 1930 camshaft

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have Chrysler 66 1930, engine no C5595, and want to change camshaft, found it but is from 1933 model.

Question - fits it to mine 1930 Chrysler?

 

With best regards

Saulius

for  Chrysler powertrain, I have noticed many parts are passed down from Chrysler to Desoto to Dodge to Plymouth over the years, so it pays to look both ways in years of parts.

I used to have a Chrysler interchange book that started in 20's and went to about 1956 models. I was amazed then to see the pass down of almost all engine parts.

below id info I have now, and I Suspect you will find cam shafts to fit  your car

////////////

Hollander info : 

Chyr  engine "66"                                1930  & 31 interchange

 

connecting rod "66"    # 303795       1930  $  31

 

cyl head     1929  &  1930          Chry  29-30  "66" 

see note: below i

See  103, 110 & 112 for info

What I find puzzling about the interchange books is that they go to great lengths over pistons, rods, bearings and so on, but no camshaft interchanges.

well when they were doing the books data was most likely on areas that had a demand.

 

Crankshafts and camshafts may have had less demand, more demand for entire engines.

 

Any way if you have a camshaft you can measure and compare Lengths of cam bearings and dia of them to yours.

 

I find the same comparison of parts for my engines over several years. They do not show interchange but they do fit. Of course a crank may have a shorter or longer throw, but can still fit and work. although a significant change.

 

The info is given to help you  in obtaining parts from comparable engines, I trust the likely hood of a usable part works for you.

I believe the 1930 Chrysler 66 engine has a timing gear rather than a timing chain. If this is your case, I believe these are unique. The 1930 DeSoto Packet truck engine also uses timing gears. This reverses the rotation of the camshaft.
