    lifter adjustment question 35,462,165,195,165

    yes mine have the "jam nut". I also havent seen any write up, pics or in depth discussion on adjusting this style. They do suck though. Ill see about getting a pic of them tonight. I got a busy day in the shop but ill try to get it apart after work. Can the lifters be removed through the covers on the side, or do they need to drop out the bottom? Id like to upgrade them to the later style if possible.
  3. My 37 royal has what i believe to be a 228 I had adjusted to valves in it a few months back and it was a pain in the ass. Most of the write ups on here i see have a different style lifter then i have. They adjust the valves using two wrenches with the car running. Mine I did cold because i saw no way to do it running. The lifters i have need 3 wrenches to adjust. Took me forever to get them as good as i could. Im getting ready to pull the head and pull the valves to grind them and do the seats. Can i switch over to the other style lifter while i got it apart? What years came with which style?

    I just dealt with the same thing for months on my 37. Drove me nuts. Turned out to be distributor bushings. Pull the cap and see how much play there is in the shaft. Doesnt take much to make them miss

    1937 chrysler Royal. I have searched and came up with Steele and Roberts for vintage parts and rubber. But i dont see the gaskets for the head light lenses. Whats everyone doing with theirs?

    1937 chrysler visor question

    1937 chrysler visor question

    A few months back i bought a 1937 royal. Ive been driving it quite a bit. Sorting out problems as i go. When i got it, the trunk i found a visor. It looks like the fulton visors i seen on other cars. Looks to be fairly strudy. Came with the left and right panels and the two center pieces they slide into. But no mounting brackets. Ive seen other 37s with visors on the internet but i dont see a source for the mounting hardware specific to my chrysler. And on some websites they say my year doesnt accept a visor because of the flat windshield. Anyone know what i can do to mount it?
