1938 Chrysler

Its been a while since I posted anything of any use on here,. The MK's been a bit neglected this year due to the weather, work commitments and family stuff.

Nevertheless's it's not stopped me picking up a couple of other interesting cars. The silver one as my daily driver. which is nice.
More interesting and likely to pull on the LCB club knowledge resourse is the restoration project I've got.

To keep it brief here, I won't be doing much with it until I've moved house, but I have spent a bit of time desperately struggling with Wordpress and updating my web/and creating a blog specially so if the pic below interests yoiu take a look at my website. As below and save me typing here

Don't diss yourself, lack if interest is hardly down to the weather and if your like me ive been on my project since 2010 and the engine is in bits..

Despite that I've been collecting bits for my next build and despite that! I'm collecting engines ATM..

Your car looks very good and it would be nice to we it restored and on the road!

Go for it!!

My goodness, what a great looking car. My father had a Chrysler Viceroy about the same period but the side lamps were on the door pillers, had Marchell headlamps and Bedford cord seating material.....A real gangsters car.....

Thank for the encouragement guys.
Its a major project, no doubt. Will be plenty to discuss over the winter I'm sure.

Now who knows how to make Google find my WP site better?

Update, engine still seized
Another pint of Diesel in the bores and will try agin in a week or few.

Anyone with any other recipes for unsiezing/rusting?
Good news is the engine does at left have a reasonable quantity of oils in it, but i strongly suspect stuck pistons. Would just be nice to get it spinning rather than having to tear it all down

I have a friend who had a seized a series. He heard that tipping coke(drink, not the stuff you stick up your nose, that would be expensive) in the bores will free up any corrosion. He stuck some in, a week later he put a socket on the crank pulley, a bit of effort and it freed off. May be worth a try for the sake of a quid!

I've not tried it but if you google 'atf acetone penetrating fluid' there's plenty who say it's good. Think I've got half a bottle of ATF from an auto I no longer have which you're welcome to have!

Interesting Ben. There's quite a few different references to it, that is a new one on me.
Will see what happens next go. One problem is that. If there proper clogged up then the diesel in the bores cod still be there and need getting out first, else it will be head off

The thing with diesel is you have to be really patient, it took between 12 to 18 months for this old beeza to free off.
When it eventually got stripped to rebuild, there was little sign of it ever being seized.
It had sat in a shed with a leaky roof since 1957

My advice is get on with all the other stuff, keep chucking diesel in and try it every couple of months to see if it's freed off.
Great project, will follow with interest.

And when you pour in the diesel boil it up and put in hot, every bit helps.

Oooh.!
Never thought it was that sort of timescale. I was being patient leaving it a month!!
Problem I have is there very little I can do without starting a full resto and theres a lot of big bits to take up a lot of space when I get to that!
No problem though this is a bit of fun tinkering until I'm ready to go for it

Marks tip will probably speed things up, must admit never thought of doing that, what a good idea.

Yes I agree, thanks Mark!

Its too late for this time as mentioned, but if what in already does seep away to make some space then worth a try.

I dont think you need to be that elaborate.
Coke will sink and start its thing.
I have seen that Jamaica -the veberage has the same effect as coke.
Prepare some concentrated jamaica ad pour.
Good for small stuff.





Beware of what you wish.. for it may come true....
