General Discussion / Re: 29 Windshield Removal Article
« on: June 11, 2017, 01:07:11 PM »

Was looking for info for Dave.  He is taking his out to replace glass and it doesn't go up/down properly.  I removed mine to put in safety glass a few years before the article and my memory is very sketchy.  I didn't remember removing the dash, but who knows.

Thanks, John.   Time flies, would not have guessed it was 15 years ago.  frank

Hi folks,

Anyone remember which Plymouth Bulletin had a good article on removing the windshield?

Nice Chet!  Just remember this is not a high falutin Chrysler!

I believe kimmc used 2 part epoxy with sawdust as a filler.  Bondo in thin layers to fill holes and cracks?

They have been on ebay from time to time.  Only place I've seen them.  Wonder what the Model A looks like?

Chet-my sedan Kingston tank has no vacuum relief and works just fine.  I have seen it on Stewart tanks.

Rwollam-by looking at Chet's picture, the cork diameter is probably about 1.5" or so.  Interestingly my cork has not been replaced or coated since I've owned the car, 1965.  i 've been told corks can be coated with "DOPE" paint from a hobby store.  This was/is used on gas/alcohol engine model airplanes.
Your brass float may be in the wrong location on the shaft allowing the gas level to rise to high.  I had this problem when the top cork stay solder failed and the corks slid up the shaft.

good luck,

(now I need a Kingston for the roadster)

From the "Plymouth Bulletin" No. 132, Jan-Feb 1982.  I've always understood the '29 had the "hex" on the inside and the 30U was smooth without the hex.  Otherwise, they appeared the same size and identical script (Old English?) P.  The parts list can be confusing at times and occasionally wrong.

Regarding the handles, the length is the same for all 3 years.  The 30U are narrower with the stronger metal.

For the running board mat, a picture and or part number would be very helpful.

As Chet said, safe travels.  Thanks,

Hi Ted,  I don't know if they are correct.  There are a number of things that aren't right, bt will save that for another day.

John,  Another dimensional question which I should have thought of before, the base should be 11/16" diameter for the Q, U handles.  Is this what Mike has?  The 30U is closer to 19/32."

All the 30U handles have the same pattern, but are slightly smaller than Q, U.  They are made of more substantial metal (don't know type) than who knows what.  The diameter of the base is smaller and consequently so is id of escutcheon.  Q, U escutcheons are interchangeable, but not with 30U.

If you have enough material in headliner to go lower, there might be enough to go higher and give you the room you need.
