Steve, Yes it's a business coupe.  I didn't get pics today, stuff came up and I didn't grab my son's phone before he went off to work.  My phone = old and the wife has my equally old digital camera with her while visiting family.  I did start my coupe up today along with the other runners I have hanging around the house. Coughed right up on the first turn after sitting since mid May.  Here's a pic of another cut-down coupe I have stashed in the backyard.  It's a far in the future project. I have the hood and some 4 door sedan doors that I plan to turn into roadster doors.  Right now it's yard art.  My granddaughter digs it.

No problem Steve but I'll have to take a picture tomorrow, can't find one on my hard drive.  Believe me, the bigger the picture the worse it will look.  I need to start it up and move it around anyway as it's been about a month since I've done so.

I'm can't say for sure but my 29 has none and it doesn't look like it ever did.  I've got a picture somewhere of one with friction shocks. I'll try to find it and post.

racertb, I would make an individual cylinder compression check my next step just so you know what you have.  If you get a low cylinder check it again after shooting a bit of oil down the hole.

Thanks Chet, I appreciate that but I don't think this engine will accept the floating power mount due to it's lack of mounting bosses and holes as Old Man described. Every time I eliminate something it's not I get closer to finding out what it is. I am learning a lot about the whirlwind times WPC was going through during the late 20's- early 30's with the wide array of vehicles offered.

Here's a better pic of under the pump. No grinding but no floating power provision either.  The engine mounts are the same as in my 29U but I have to make an x-member. I'm researching Fargo, Packet, Freighter and early Plymouth buses when I'm unable to work in my garage.

Cast date on trans is 1931.  Nothing under water pump.

Thanks for the info Old Man.  The fan was a four blade that somebody cut down.  I can't see anything under the water pump but there's a threaded hole and some other fitting under the tranny, aft. The universal is a knuckle with a female spine.  I figured the T may be for truck so I'll look in that direction.

It kind of sounds like it's running on 3 cylinders.  Does the plug in the cyl. that is squirting oil out of a hole look like it's been firing?  I'd do a compression check on the engine if you haven't already.  You may have gotten the distributor situation tightened up enough to run and are now seeing a separate problem. The play in your distributor looks concerning.  I just went out and check mine and there's virtually no play.

My plan is to use newer engine and tranny and save the 29U shortblock in the hulk as a spare for my other coupe. I'll use original rear end and parallel leaf front end with original wire spoked rims. No fenders. (unless I find a couple) The car will look like a depression era doodle bug of sorts.  I think this car was made into a pickup at one time.

Here it stashed in my backyard.  I picked up 4 sedan doors that I'll make coupe doors from.

Chet, the "roadster" is a cut down 29 coupe someone did years ago. I bought the chassis for parts and ended up with what was left of the body a few months later. The only reason I'm interested in specifics on the engine is because I'm curious that way and possibly it might be useful if I need parts. I'll definitely use it regardless. This is a far back, back burner project.

Yes, the "T" and the low number is what puzzles me. It has a water pump, mechanical fuel pump, and different hose connections than on my 29U coupe. The generator is mounted low since the water pump occupies the space it was on the earlier engines.  The shifter has what looks like maybe a reverse lock out lever?
