Question From Jadebug25 on 1925 Chrysler #477, what's it worth?

Anyone know what a 1925 Chrysler with the factory number of 477 is worth? It's just like the one in Walter Chrysler's boyhood home (of course not nearly as nice) It needs fully restored. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Response From Jadebug25

I am unable to add pictures here, but have it listed on ebay just in case anyone wants to see it. It's actually a 1924, not a 1925.

Just go to your ad - copy and past the pics here. They will expire when the ad expires and just show a red X,

Here is the main pic

Response From Jadebug25

yep, this is it! Thanks

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Couldn't find that car by that exact name but found a jack for a Model T I'm using right now in my shop!



That pic will expire in 16 days, $35 bucks. Slow thing but could lift a barn,

Old Cars Weekly Reports

Response From nickwarner

This is a specialty type of car for a collector/restorer so I would advertise it in Hemmings Motor News. Great magazine for those interested in the classic iron and the people that subscribe are also the market for this car. RT's link might give you a good idea for pricing too.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Not a clue so far. If you take a ton of pics and detailed information known about it try marketing it thru the assorted sites for that. For value perhaps see if you can find another for sale whole or for parts. List out what is still known good as best you can,

Question From szamocka on CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY-PLEASE HELP QUICKLY!!!

HI! I HAVE A 1998 CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY. I JUST GOT DONE CHANGING THE SPARK PLUGS IN MY 98 CHRYSLER MINI VAN,3.8 ,I HAD TO TAKE OFF THE INTAKE MANIFOLDS ETC! IT'S ALL BACK NOW BUT IT IS IN FAST IDOL! OR STUCK IN FULL THROTOL!!?? WHAT IS GOIN ON? i rechecked everithing !!" PLEASE HELP!!!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Did you replace manifold gaskets? If no pinched wiring seems like a vacuum leak so far or maybe if torquing manifold(s) etc., broke/cracked something??

T

Response From szamocka

HI! AND THANKS FOR RESPONDING! I HAD RETITENED ALL THE BOLTS AND IT HELPED! BUT I THINK IT STILL IDOLS TO FAST! ITS OK IN D, BUT IN PARK IT IDOLS OVER 1200 RPM! AND AS IT WORMS UP EVEN FASTER! I PUT NEW GASKETS AND DID NOT USED ANY SILICON,BUT WAS ONE IN THE PACKAGE! I WAS TOLD NOT TO USE IT?? ON THE INTAKE!? IS THERE WAY TO SET THE IDOL SPEED LOWER? SINCE I PUT NEW WIRES AND PLUGS IT RUNS BETTER! IT WAS NEVER CHANGED! WHAT IS NORMAL?ALSO I DID NOT WANT TO TORQUET TO MUCH!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Many parts of things especially engine you need to tight things in order by specified torque. If not done that way can be trouble especially on engines using alloy/aluminum parts!

The manifold gaskets may or may not be interchangeable side to side/front and rear. Plain don't know for this car but if so problems are near certain. New gaskets should have said or included any sealer/silicone if needed,

Response From autotecha

TOM, I'm glad you said sequence ( I meant to say that with using a torque wrench....)

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Thanks for clarifying. In sequence using torque wrench is much better than saying in order. Old all cast iron you could get away with murder but sure wouldn't trust the aluminum/alloys - engine, pumps, wheels and all!

Response From Discretesignals

Don't use silicone on the upper intake plenum. Silicone will kill an O2 sensor faster than you can say, "Opps did I do that?" Only time you use gasket maker, which is O2 sensor safe, on one of those is when you are doing lower intake gaskets. You use a little bit of gasket maker on the china walls in the corners.

Don't adjust the throttle cam stop to lower idle speed. If you have a high idle, you have done something wrong and you need to figure it out instead of compromising for it by changing something that isn't intended to be messed with.

Response From samg. Top Rated Answer

Did you tweak your throttle cable?

Response From autotecha

X2 Like he said it sounds like a vaccuum leak. Do you have a torque wrench to torque it down?

Does anyone have a schematic (starter, relay, interlock, etc) section of the car
they can post?

Thanks in advance!

Response From DanD Top Rated Answer

This diagram can be a bit confusing because it’s showing both auto and manual transmissions.
Hope it’s what you’re looking for?

That is exactly the schematic I needed!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

1996 Chrysler Town & Country Gas Govener in Park?

Showing 2 out of 7 Posts | Show 5 Hidden Posts
Question From Guest on 1996 Chrysler Town & Country Gas Govener in Park?

Does the 2006 Chrysler T&C have a govener so you can't redline the engine while in park? It seems to sputter around 300 rpms.

Thanks.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

You meant 3,000 - right? If it's not restricted around that with no load it should be to save youself from the BIG BANG you'll probably get a chance to witness if you keep trying that!

T

Response From Guest

Your reply was too funny! Yeah I meant 3000. Is that a yes though? It drives just fine.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I don't know if this is purposely limited but anything over 2,500 rpm with no load is not a good idea on engines for the most part. Why are you doing this? The resistance of load actually helps hold the engine from blowing up - keep trying and you may find out!

Redline would probably be 4,200 or so (guess) and you could see that and the behavior if you want just flooring it from slow or stop safely on a highway and 1st to 2nd shift would be about the max the engine should ever be exposed to and should handle that - with the load! With good judgement that could be a safe and legal test if you need to know if it can.

You won't catch me testing the no load limits on cars unless I want the exposion - not!

Computer controls for engine in this vintage I would expect to be confused with making automatic adjustments for NO LOAD high rpm.

Again - if the vehicle is running properly for you, why are you doing this????

Response From Guest

I'm crying, i'm laughing so hard. No I don't just sit in the van and gun the engine in my spare time.

The reason we gave the van a little gas while in park was I thought I heard a strange engine noise. Then we noticed this governer thing kicking in.

It appears though there could be power steering issues with this van that is common with 2005 & 2006 Chrysler Town and Country.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer


If you did just sit in the thing and gun the engine all the time this could happen No problem - it's just one last big bang.......... then no more noise! Good way to meet your neighbors and see how fast emergency response is in your area

Seriously - it could be lots of things. Check all fluids first. See if steering the van while sitting still makes the noise louder - that might be the steering pump/rack. don't force it at end of steering range.

Also check for pulleys that are bad or just a belt noise. Belt noises usually shut up for a while if you shut engine off, spray some WD-40 on the belt and if when started noise is gone get a new belt.

Other noises could be loose parts like air cleaner assy or exhaust heat shields sometimes even when this new. If a rattle or even a buzz it could be exhaust. Sometimes you can find those with engine off just tapping on pipes with a rubber hammer.

Are you still under warranty with this thing?
