    Poverty caps on my '66

    I did not see an option for black stock rims so I just stated not to add trim rings. The build sheet confirmed the black painted wheels.

    Reproduction Tires

    I have several collector cars with both bias and radial tires. I would suggest you chart the advantages and disadvantages to both plus the pricing column. I like my bias-ply from Lucas tires. for my '59 Imperial and '62 Chrysler 300. With your car being 1972 I suspect you can choose either from...

    Slow leak

    Determine for sure the condition on the bead and/or valve stem. Purchase or re-use a squirt bottle, put in a small squirt of dish soap and fill it up. spray the bead and valve stem after fully inflating the tire. Watch for the bubbles that may form. Also how long does it take to lose how much...

    Walking Wheel Covers

    By chance do you have radial tires on the car that was designed for bias ply tires. I have never experienced what you describe on any of my old cars.

    Passenger rear drum getting hot

    Look for uneven wear on the hot shoes. Sometimes the wrong shoes are given and/or problems with the brake hardware.

    Passenger rear drum getting hot

    Did you replace the shoes on the side where it leaked? my '62 300 was fine and looked clean but after driving a short distance the brake fluid came up from the brake shoes and the brake would lock up. We used brake clean and even burned them off with a torch but the brake fluid wicks into the...

    Anyone running bias-ply reproduction tires on their C?

    I personally like bias ply tires. I run them on my '59 Imperial and '62 300. Bias ply typically don't blow out if they fail. Here is my 300.

    Tires for my 1971 Chrysler 300

    So would a "Dremel" tool with a proper attachment be even better? if the tire rotates and you hold the tool stationary.

    Tires for my 1971 Chrysler 300

    I like your idea. I'm looking for tires for my '62 Chrysler 300 convert. The ones on it now are 3" wide whites on bias. That year 1" W/W was on the car but I don't like the narrow of the w/w. I found that Cadillac had basically the same thing you did in 1970. But, the w/w pattern is in reverse...

    Master cylinder cap leaking

    I would also check the casting of the master cylinder near the cap area to see if it is even and flat.

    On the road changing a flat tire.

    This same topic came up a year or so ago. I purchased a Larin 2 1/2 ton jack in a plastic case for $35.99 when on sale. You should also get a Slime brand tire inflator for about $65 on sale. It inflates a tire in a couple of minutes or less. Lastly a red or orange flashing light to face...

    Getting New Tires

    Too bad your car is not P23575R15 as Lucas has those with 1.5" WW as blems for $99 per tire.

    Rear brake is driving me nuts...

    After the test drive and the shoes cool down...what does the drums look like? are they clean or after test drive looks alittle greasy? Just went thru somewhat similar on the front of the '62 Chrysler 300. We burned the shoes cleam with a torch and used brake clean. When used they heated up and...

    What is this bushing called

    Is that attached to the torsion bar? if so look for that verbiage in describing it vs calling it a strut.
