Chrysler Royal, M6 transmission, fluid drive

Page 3 of 7  
I got the kingpins out... I guess maybe you were trying to scare me by saying they are always difficult... :D Took about 4 whacks with a 4 pound hammer and a brass drift and the
mamma jamma flew out like a greased pig! Of course, I only undid the driver's side so far, so the passenger's side may be a chore, but I doubt it.
So, off I went to O'reilly auto parts.. At first, I forgot my list of part numbers... the person who helped me said "we can't look anything up that is that old in the computer"... so I went home and returned with my list of part numbers. I went on the main o'reilly website and found all the 'rare parts' numbers... Amazingly, none of the parts cross-referenced in the computer. When the person finally asked someone else working there about rare parts, the rare parts site was brought up on the computer... according to the computer, i can't get the kingpin set, can't get the pins for the control arms. None of the parts I actually need. The only parts I was able to get were the shock absorbers.. All of it is listed on the main o'reilly website with part numbers. I can actually order the tie-rod ends from o'reilly, but they are twice the price of a place that actually has every part that i need online.. Sorry, I tried... I know you tried too. Whomever maintains the fricking website for the corporation needs to update the site if the parts are not actually available. It really makes these people at the local store look like a bunch of slackers when I have a part number from a live website and I can't order it.
They *were* able to order the 10W non detergent oil for the transmission. I have to go pick up the front shocks and the 12-case of oil tomorrow morning.
I went ahead and called Andy Bernbaum's and got everything else i need for the car at the moment.... cost an arm and a leg, of course..

The only thing i'm scared of with the kingpins is A> the pin is mangled and won't come out and/or B> the pin comes out, but the knuckle is worn out from neglect.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
Who knows, you may turn me into an O'reilly's believer after all.. :D
Don't know where you are located but there are numerous aged rusted cars in yards and fields along 27 in Ind. Gotta be a knuckle there if you can't rebush the one you have. If you can't find a new one you could always build it up then take it down to spec's.

Hopefully we won't have to do that :D
I am down in the deep south.. most stuff is hidden away around here. I haven't found any junkyards with really old cars.. guess i haven't talked to the proper old boy yet!

I bought a 12-case of the ND10 oil. Should I be concerned that there is no API service label on the bottle?

ND oil would not have an API service label, so I'd say "don't worry!"

No... there is no API certification on ND10 oil. The API certification came into being with multi-viscosity detergent oils circa 1955 or thereabouts if I recall.

actually, it's against the rules of USEnet to post binary images in any group not designated for such purpose.
all you have to do is copy and paste the link into the address bar of your browser, then at the beginning, where it says "xxxx" change that to "http"... it's really simple.
If you are still unable to do that, email me privately, and I will send you a link that way or just send you pictures in your email. There are a bunch of them, however..

Actually, this is a unmoderated group. We have never done "rules" here.

I'm aware how simple it is. I messed it up.
Looks like a fun project. A bunch of cleaning/blasting and so on. Brings back memories. Enjoy yourself.

sorry if i sounded like a piece of male anatomy, was not trying to sound like that. i am really enjoying this project. never had something so old that was actually fixable without all sorts of BS (not counting getting parts).

I'm afraid the world is on the virge of losing a vast majority of previously learned knowledge.

hey guys, was wondering what the best approach would be for removing the old kingpin bushings and then installing the new ones. One of the ones on the spindle is a needle bearing, which they did not send, but I am assuming one of the several bushings is to replace the needle roller... I can only see two bushings on the one side, but they sent me three for each side.
anyhow, I don't want to screw anything up at this point, so I would seriously love to hear your opinions. I was thinking of using a hacksaw blade or a dremel tool to get the old bushings out. however, for re-installing, i haven't come up with anything better than putting the spindle in the oven for an hour and putting the bushings in the freezer for an hour and seeing if they will drop in with minimal banging from a hammer or drift. I have installed at least three ring gears on flywheels with this method.... the ring gears were so tight at ambient temperature, they were a tight tight interference fit. after heat soaking the ring and cold soaking the flywheel, the ring just dropped right onto the flywheel.
Thanks in advance!

That's the approach I would take too! Just be sure momma is not around when you do the oven thing... wimmen have no sense of humor about stuff like that... this is the voice of experience talking to you...

Lol! Actually, i am encouraged by the people close to me to do whatever I need to do to get the job done. I would, of course, make sure the part is completely cleansed of oil, grease, etc. before i put it in the oven...
