Technical information and pictures of the Plymouth, Dodge and some other Chryslers up to 1955.

Although many components and repair procedures are the same for all Chrysler-built cars there are also many differences and it is of course impossible to deal with all these various aspects. However, we have endeavored to make the best possible selection of subjects considered to be the most important to the average owner. Also many repair procedures on the more popular older models have been included and considerable attention has been given to the repair and adjustment of older type transmissions.

The Hy-Drive and PowerFlite automatic transmis sions are discussed in considerable detail, but mainly with the object of familiarizing with the operation and construction of these units. It should be borne in mind that these transmissions (the PowerFlite in particular) are highly complicated and adjustments and repairs should be left only to those who possess the necessary know-how, experience and equipment to perform these delicate operations.

To a great extent the same holds true for the Power Steering units and the electrical gear (starter motor, generator voltage regulator).
