Chet,  Check your link, the one for the plymouthowners.club is correct.

Are you sure you don't want to install window regulator until after paint?  My recollection is the slotted screws face out towards inner door skin.

Great work!

Frank,  FYI

All the glass, glass channels, window weather stripping, etc., I will install after the paint.  Makes for a much cleaner look.  The door's center board is easily removed.  Basically I installed the door locks to ensure all doors close properly and it will make the transport easier.  Also less masking for the painter.

Cheers, Chet...

Update on Motor & Pressure Plate

Well its been 2 years since this car has been out of the garage so it was nice to roll her out and see it sitting on its own four wheels.  Also cleaning the garage bay was a welcome task.



I ran the engine for a little while but shut it down after 5 minutes because the valves were making a lot of noise and need to be adjusted.  Vacuum was excellent and oil pressure was at max 38-40psi with the vacuum fuel line plugged and the pressure relief valve set to minimum pressure.  I will stabilize this once the engine is broken in a bit longer.  Right now the high oil pressure is a friend.



I used the known good old wiring and carburetor.  Once I stabilize everything I will try the new carb but then again.., I might wait until the car is back from the paint shop. 

Up Date on pressure plates.

I received the new style plate in the mail today and it is in excellent condition and the clutch doesn't look like it has 500 miles on it yet.



Also purchased the two early Plymouth pressure plates from the AACA post.  Hopefully make at least one good one from the two I purchased and the parts I have left from my original,  Maybe get two goods ones out of the deal, fingers crossed?



Sometimes it seems like two steps forward and one back.., but making some progress.

Chet...

The carb is not correct but I know it works.  And yes the direction is incorrect.

I have the correct brass bowl but will install after I work the bugs out of the motor.

Not sure yet which pressure plate I will use.  The one from Jay appears to be a much better design.
