Re: [Chrysler300] 61 300G

Les Fairbanks hub puller is a jewel. I know folks who have replaced the rear axle to get rid of the tapered hubs, The Fairbanks puller makes it so easy it just is not a problem. 

If you are working in that area, I have to share this: 
I was having a hard time after the drum was off the axle removing the axle from the axle housing,
Someone suggested I place the drum back on the axle after I removed the backing plate, shoes etc , then put a washer and the axle nut back and use the drum as a slide hammer. It worked, but it took such force that it forced the nut past the threads-stripped off the threads on the nut and the axle . I had to get two new axles. I don’t know what the answer is, but that wasn’t it.  I did something wrong,

Glad to have you focused on your 300!

Wheel & tire data for all letter cars:    Rear drums are on tapered axles and will be difficult to remove.  Great tool:   Stud bolts on LH side are LH threads.  Tiniest cleanup cut only on drums to maximize remaining life of scarce drums.

Hi All,


Now that I've sold my 61 Corvette my 61 300G gets all the attention!




1. What width size whitewall did the 300G come with?  I'm planning on buying Coker radials, The stock size was 8.00 - 15.  Would that equate to 225 70R-15?


2. I also need to do the brakes from stem to stern.  I was going to use NAPA for most of the parts.  Comments?  Recommendations?  Has anyone used s/s brake lines from Good Brakes or Brake Hoses Unlimited on EBay?
