Are you sure the connecting rod is bad, or does it just need to be rebattited?
I have some connecting rods for a 29, not sure if they are the same.

Hi Carson,

Welcome!  You will find we are all partial to pictures.  If your choke knob has original printing, I would love a close-up of it.

Sir;  Two months  ago I bought a 1929 U fourdoor with what I think is original upholstery.  I would be glad to send pictures if you like.  Regards Carson

This is Great News Dave,

I had already painted the firewall black and being that the Dash was originally black.., this means that I can install the wiring harness and motor without painting the entire car now.  I can leave the body painting for a later date.  GREAT NEWS....



Back to my original plan.  :)  8)

Well New Year / Change of Plan

Need Guidance:
  • Firewall painted same as body
    No. Black. I have spots I can see the primer under it, positive it was never the body color.
  • In a two tone car lets say Blue Body with Black trim & Black fenders
Yep
  • Dashboard Question ?  What color
Black
  • Window Trim Metal ?  What color
Black
  • Holding down costs / paint myself / find a cost affective solution
  No input from me
[/list] Any words of wisdom ??  The old paint on the 29 is very stable.  The red paint that has been on the car for over 10 years and is in perfect shape.  Maybe an easy repaint.  ?  Maybe Maaco ?

Any comments ?   Chet...

You know your skill set best, seem pretty talented at what ever you take on.

Well New Year / Change of Plan

After reviewing where I am going with this project it's clear that my old car needs to be completely repainted.  Since the car is totally stripped down now I have to switch gears and decide on a body color that is in the very least close to an original color.  I thought Black which is easy and non controversial but then the original color of my car was the lighter Blue.  I would guess Marine Blue.   I can't start assembling things including installing the wire harness if I will be painting the car at a later date.  Easier to paint now then start installing items for the last time.

Need Guidance:
  • Firewall painted same as body
  • In a two tone car lets say Blue Body with Black trim & Black fenders
  • Dashboard Question ?  What color
  • Window Trim Metal ?  What color
  • Holding down costs / paint myself / find a cost affective solution
Any words of wisdom ??  The old paint on the 29 is very stable.  The red paint that has been on the car for over 10 years and is in perfect shape.  Maybe an easy repaint.  ?  Maybe Maaco ?

Costs are piling up with the complete engine rebuild, new suspension all around, refurbished starter & generator and not yet re-chromed surround and bumpers, interior seats, roof, and items I haven't considered yet.   Need to save someplace any suggestions.  The upholstery I can do myself although I might have someone do the exterior roof ??

Any comments ?   Chet...

All this hoo-ha said, do the flywheels/ring gears have the part number on them for identification?  How could you positively identify the e-bay flywheel?

Aren't these fun??

Frank,  THAT IS THE QUESTION ?  Neil might inquire to the seller what car or engine it came from.  Anything other than an early 29U might make it a #74455.  Ring gear U after Y-204-PP engine #U-89290 All US built, 30U, PA

Might also depend on which starter he has.  Who knows what these cars have in them after 80+ years of repairs.  Could be any combination now.  Maybe Ed Sapp can add some additional wisdom concerning the flywheel. 

Fun is an interesting description,  Chet...
