The Code C-46 Owner's/Driver's Manual/Instructions D-12627, Second Edition, reproduced here was purchased ca. 1954 for use with my 1949 Chrysler New Yorker 8 C-46 sedan (bought lightly used for $750.00 after I had driven and fallen in love with my dad's new one).  It has been sold as part of the sale in April 2007 of my 1949 Chrysler Highlander 8 C-46 Club Coupé but I chose to scan the entire original first so others can benefit.

The manual measures 6" (150mm) wide by 9" (220mm) high and the images were "only" scanned at 150dpi but are rather large, averaging about 450Kb per double-page spread (all are thumbnailed for ease of loading of the page).  This extravagant use of precious domain memory is my little gift to Chrysler 8 C-46 Straight Eight enthusiasts - you VILL ENCHOY!

Although the Index is shown as an image on page 32, I have scanned in the page here as text (edited slightly) and linked it to the images:

LUBRICATION CHART     CHRYSLER C-46 - because the lubrication chart glued onto the inside rear cover measures 20" (50cm) long, it ends up a whopping 2.17 MEGAbytes and so I offer it in full here or as two smaller images, the left and right halves:
