Welcome, it looks like a twin to my original.

If it has been sitting a while, (years) MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN AND FREE THE DISTRIBUTOR BASE!! Before trying to start.
It will break into many pieces. It took me years to find an original replacement. (I got mine that way) The oil sits in there and binds it up and when you start cranking it or get it running the pot metal crumbles.

There are a couple of build threads on here, (mine needs picture updating) that will likely cover anything you encounter. Best site on the web here for the old Plymouth's! They are fun and simple old cars.

I'll get back on here when I get some more time, just had to get that warning out.

My one headlight lense is broke, but the glass is there.
How does the throttle control work vs the accelerator?
I think my pedals must be...clutch, brake, accelerator, starter(this doesnt move), then headlight dimmer?
I figured the clutch and brake, but I have 3 more "buttons" to the right of the brake.

Welcome to the forum,

Nice find.  I am sure others will chime in with additional info.

A few responses to some of your questions:

  • Radiator cap is available as a reproduction ( in the $300USD range )
  • Headlight lens - Yours look OK in the picture there are bulbs in the buckets not sealed beams.
  • The 2 levers on the horn are broke, what do they do - (1) Headlight/Park light switch (2) Throttle control
  • Is there a starting procedure manual? - There is a Plymouth Instruction Book for 1929 - Copies are available on ebay.  You can also check the Tech Section of this website
  • What do all the buttons/levers on the floor do? - Not sure what you are referring to but Here goes:  Clutch, Brake, Accelerator, Starter Switch, Gear Shift, Parking brake.  I believe that's it unless you have something else installed ??

Welcome to the forum, I think you will find the folks here very knowledgeable.
