My Letter got some progress...

At the propeller shaft I got later I went to friends nearby to press the pin out (easy job with the ancient manual Sauerer press). The plan is to use the pin and the b/t case in conjunction of the second propeller shaft with new rollers with needles (end cups the best ones).

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Make sure that the pin is totally centered when you press it in Dieter. It's very important.

wizard - 2022-01-14 8:08 PM Make sure that the pin is totally centered when you press it in Dieter. It's very important.

The pin on the second propeller shaft was about 5 mill out of center. For sure I keep in mind that the pin must be centered - the more precise - the less the vibration caused by the propeller shaft (the U-Joint at the first propeller shaft (colored) turns almost itself, that light). In my mind.... 1/1000 mill accuracy, the second friend at the barn in Wald ZH (almost finished his 1938 MG Sedan) is retired machine mechanic.

If you want to do a favor for me, please build a 5 mill disc as you did for my Beast, because the second b/t-case shows wearing marks.

Happy Restoring!

Hi Sven

It's around 82 millimeter cc, the same size as the Beast has (both B/T original and later arriven have the same diameter and the purchased rollers are fitting with the pin into the B/T-case).

This day I went to my mum and did enjoy a super delicious meal. I adjusted her television set that she could watch television again,... Then, after the meal I went to the basement to work on my drill rig (constructed 1982 as with all the basic mechanical operations).

I repaired the washing water bottle cover (better appearance than that from epain) with success. On Monday remove the rest of the brass tube... plus the B/T-case will get at least one layer of primer.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

The too long brass tube is shortened, a little bit too far. But okay

This morning the second B/T-case got two layers of rust converting and sealing primer, two coats of metallic color and one layer of clear coat. The color is almost identical to the color of the propeller shaft.

Happy Restoring!

I did open the lower part of the wash water container cover to look after...

The internal of the lower part of the wash water container cover looks like new (even the spring shows the original color). While the second (later purchased) wash water container cover looks very corroded inside. While opening a load of rust poured out. Now wonder, the spring is broken and very rusty. This morning I felt like a dentist, cleaning all internal parts of the second cover. The cover itself looks very brittle... So, the only way is to use that one as a parting out item.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: this week as well: power steering pump, the same type as described in the service bulletin "151 Steering Service Tips for 1960".

Yesterday afternoon fighting with the first propeller shaft. With loads of effort and four people turning the spindle at the ancient Saurer press, the pin finally was out. A rubber booth mounted, the second B/T-case and the pin of the fist propeller shaft, it was almost impossible to press in the pin again. The whole press started to rotate on the floor (.157 inch / 4 millimeter per rotation at the spindle of the press). One participant promissed to take his 20 ton hydraulic press with him from his garage - next Saturday next trial.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: engine stalling at the cylinder grinder (engine restorer has a imense stack of cars to work on). A sad story.

BTW2: the pin of the first propeller shaft is colored the whole length of the forged beam (with the guy who will bring his press we discoussed the mounting at the factory, an Alfa Romeo expert, that most probably the forged bean was glowing red when initially pressing in the pin at the factory)

No heat was used for to mount the pin. The tolerances are tight, but it should only be pressed in. My hydraulic press is 12 ton and it will do the job. Absolute straingtness is demanded. I have wooden blocks for to support the propeller shaft horisontal.

Technical dates of the B/T pin installation: 0.04 mm, well below the factory specification of 0.003 Inch. I did use the hydraulic press again with a measurement installation to see how much the pin did move. Later on the evening both rollers (from the parcels) cleaned and installed with the grease by packed with the Dodge Neon cv drive shaft boot (614 001). I was hardly fighting to bring back the rear end of the boot. Finally I found a solution to install the boot, even with a felt ring (breathing of the B/T-case). The long tube needs a grinding with sand paper and a new layer of color (too early painted).

Happy Restoring!

I don't recognize the jute felt around the shaft Dieter. As I recall it should be a square piece only.

I'm sorry, I do not have an example with the felt installed. Neither does the service manual show the felt installed. So I did trim the felt to get a little better appearance.

Yesterday afternoon I went to the paint and body shop. The body is painted now. The Letter looks wonderful in the original color. Pictures later.

I tired to remove the washing water nozzle at the cowl vent. With no success (electrochemical corrosion, the cowl vent is made out aluminum). Many times CRC 5-56 penetrating oil applied.

Furthermore some marks from laying on tree leafs for years (coloration).

I do not want to destroy the nozzle (very hard to get for me).

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Two possibilities Dieter,

- Apply heat from a fan heat-gun
- Split the nut with a Dremel grinder with cutting discs

You will always find a nut, the nozzle is worse.....

Thanks Tom

This morning I visited the body&paint shop once again. I was astonished when I saw my Letter. We relocated the Letter to mount both front doors and the front end, except the inner fenders (not mounted until the engine is in).

For the whole front end all new screws, hex nuts, washers. On Monday the boss of the shop and his employee will install the hood and do the final polish of the color. My job I to bring the door locks to secure the doors for the transport to me. Most probably next week.

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

BTW: installing were the boss of the body/paint shop and me
BTW2: The whole front suspension needs an adjustment for sure, ball joints included (at the first location the parts were ejected into the air and fell together as they are now).

Thanks you very much for your comments.

In the mean time I mounted the fuel tank with the sender in it, the whole fuel line to the exit of the front subframe, the inner and outer door openers. As the pictures are telling, it looks like I have the get out the clips with the fuel line at the passenger side as well to fiddle out the resting sand blasting sand. I applied on several areas transparent fluid wax out of rattle can to preserve the seams, but the front end needs some more.

Happy Restoring!

The door locks are installed, both doors do close very smooth. But the drivers side door is a little bit too far in, how to adjust, except adjusting the body mounted part?

Still more than enough sandblasting sand in both front ends of the rockers. I was working it out with a small painting brush and all the fingers of my hands. No air compressor today (Sunday). More works on removing sandblasting sand next Saturday.

The exhaust hangers are temporary mounted on both sides, but the screws not fully tighned. The clips (3) are off from the fuel line. When the rockers are quite enough free from sandblasting sand, through these holes I'll apply transparent fluid wax (very good quality, but not cheep).

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Dieter, mount the door weatherstrip first. This might be just enough to get a more proper alignment. If not, the door lock catch mounted to the pillar can be adjusted to the best fit.

Thanks. I used the biggest cross blase screw driver and the impact driver with the fitting cross blade to try to open the screws at the striker plate - no success. Yesterday once again 4 hours removing sand blasting sand (with lowered air volume at the nozzel I got better results). From the rear wheel well I noticed at the start up to a thickness of 1 centimeter sand blasting sand in the rockers and longitudinal rails in the rear axle well, as wel in the two boxes under the rear seats accessible from the bottom and internally connected the longitudinal rails at the the end sheet of the propeller shaft tunnel. In the rails of the front Subframe as well - Sand Blast Sand removed...

So one more full Saturday afternoon as Sand Blasting residuals removing...

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

Youtube must try reach the screws from the backside and soak the threads with rust penetrating fluid.
Get a PH3 screw bit for 1/4" ratchet and try.
If the screw heads are worn you can get diamond powder paste - it will help to get optimum grip.
Heat is not and option now that the car is painted.

I guess you'll see now what's the problem... in my opinion, drill out the heads and separate the striker plate from the back plate (different position as the one on the passenger side... visible from the slot of the quarter window).

Then apply loads of heat (until red glowing), then from the back with a vise grip (plate in the bench vise) - hypothetically I could save the plate and the threads in it.

Then purchase a few of these screws.

Happy Restoring

Dieter

BTW: the wing nut at the threaded stem (battery tray, to hold down the battery) was solid frozen. First I tried 5-56, then the propane torch. Finally with wiggling it break free.

Yes Dieter, in that state it's yhe only option.
Start with a small drill and work up with larger drills.
Cover the pillar with protective material, perhaps masonite with a cut out as large as the striker.

I got both plates out. The resting stems are out as well. As far as I did measure, the screws are #12-24, about 3/8 inch long.

Happy Restoring!

The dashboard, four rims and some other stuff is sand blasted now. No primer actually. Because both, the boss of the body and paint shop got Corona.

On one rime I discovered a stamp 6" x 14". Two rims are that size, the two other slightly wider (e.g. 6.5").

This afternoon I cleaned the floor (loads of quarz sand sucked up with the vac cleaner - from the first location where my Letter was). Again I mounted the clips and did clip in the fuel line after I unloaded the third rattle can of transparent wax (professional grade). I mounted the front and the rear brake (on the axle shaft) distributor. Temporary I did close the openings with adhesive tape that no dust will enter.

I checked... new brake cylinders in plastic bags are waiting, as well as a set of brake hoses. All junction steel plates are mounted (from the brake line to the brake hose). I guess I'll take my old brake cylinders with me to measure the flange to compare with the new, to have a look if they will fit.

With the driver side LED-lamp I discovered that the tie rod end boot is cracked as well. Hell... where do I get new tie rod ends for my Letter?

Happy Easter Season

Happy Restoring!

Dieter: I think that the PN for your 300's outer tie rod ends is 2084 353. Searching on "2084353" doesn't show up anything the easy way.

Nothing at Hiltop or Grease Monkey but Len Dawson does show 4. Not cheap but he has some.

http://www.dpmotorparts.com/inventory_4_b.cfm (enter 2084353 in the box and click on the "Search")

Moog still lists a bunch of parts for 1960 Chrysler 300s, just not tie rod ends (which is strange). You might have to get creative and go to a year or two later or newer (?)

Here is a listing for 1962 Chrysler outers:

Thanks Dave

That could be a solution, but the parts numbers on the tie rod ends for the full size 1960 Chrysler (Imperial included) is 1881 821 (passenger side) and 1881 820 (drivers side).

Happy Easter Season

Happy Restoring!

 

BTW: comapring to many old pictures I took during the disassembly and restoring at both places I decided to take the tie rod ends from Andy Bernbaum. Hypothetically I'll get the correct tie rod ends.

After visiting my Mum and getting a very good dinner on the way at home I did a small detour to visit my Letter to remove all four cotter pins at the front suspension (steering knuckle). I hope to get the ball joint out with no problems because the whole front suspension was disassembled at the first place. I'll take a big 3/4" ratchet with me as well to loosen the pre-loosened ball joints fully to exchange it prior the brake line job.

Umm....those 1881 821 and 820 numbers are for the *INNER* tie rod ends, *NOT* outer.

Dave, you're correct. After a second look I discovered the correct number you provided.

This morning (many hours) I exchanged both upper ball joints... the driver side went out three turnings and that was it. I could dig it out. The new one is tightened. The lower ball joint on the drivers side is that tight, that I could wiggle the body of the Letter on the stands.

A tool press out the stem of the lower ball joint I do not have. So I have to look for a solution for next Saturday afternoon.

BTW: correct, last December I got a 3/4" Stahlwille ratchet with a long handle - easy to work with. And in the box I discovered two more tie rod ends, looking back - no urge to buy another two tie rod ends....

Happy Restoring!

Dieter

This afternoon, just a few hours to get the resting ball joints out. All four ball joints at the front axle are exchanged now. Next Saturday I'll mount the wheel brake cylinders... and further cleaning of the speedo and tach cable.

Happy Restoring!

At the picture with the new upper ball joint you might notice that the brake support plate got a primer layer (Etokat at the first location). Neither the old nor the new brake cylinders will fit (paint layers too thick). I have to brush all the color down inisde the dust shield and brake support plate (what an incompentent team was that, hell on earth).

I took the support plate and the dust shields at home... I noticed that the brake cylinders first must be mounted into the support plate and then the support plate to the dust shield (different, than on my 1956 Chrysler New Yorker - brake cylinders exchangeable without removing the support plate). I had to take the brake pins out of the old dust boots and clean four more of these pins at the rotating wire brush. They all got a layer of WD 40...

The screws at to mount the assembly to the spindle hub got a small amount of copper paste to get it out easier next time...

Dieter

BTW: the dashboard (hardware included) and rims got a primer layer in the mean time.
