Thanks Kim,

I'll review when I get a chance and I added your diagrams to my data file.  The coupe shouldn't be that different than the 4 door. 

Unfortunately my floor is already finished now but good info can help the next guy.

Tks Chet...

You might want to check an old Motors Manual from the late 20's or early  to mid 30's.  And look at the Maxwell 4 cyl.

Below is a link to the "Plymouth First Decade" tech area:

Just in info on the Rod bolts:

Hello Chester:
   Actually replacements are available.
Since we had done a PB engine a few years back I had in my memory we used ARP.

   Tell your friend that the modern replacement is for a 440 Chrysler, of course.
Part number for the bolt is AR312-1 and nut is N503-RE  Heíll need 8 of each.

Thanks
John

Hi Russ,  Please verify before ordering but hopefully this will work,  Chet...

Hi Rusty,

This is what I received back from J&M Machine concerning the rod bolts.

"Chet:
Thanks for the e-mail.
I have been out for several days with the stomach flu so I didnít see your e-mail.
We are trying to find a modern replacement for those bolts as naturally all Nos ones are long gone.
Will let you know what we come up with."

Rusty when I know you'll know.  Sorry I guess this is going to be one of those simple things that turns into a big project.  I would guess that they would have to re-tap a standard rod bolt if one exists.  I hope they don't have to change the connecting rods ?  Now you got me worrying.  $$$

If you do remove the dampening top springs don't discard them. When I had my springs built that was the only item they couldn't duplicate.

Rusty,

Unfortunately I think you may have ordered the wrong size.  Check the catalog or website.

I will email your description to J&M Machine and ask them what they are using on my engine.

What is so different about these bolts that make them so hard to find. 

Form, Fit, Function, Thread size ?

Me Too !

We'll see, I would have liked to have the 29 ready to go but maybe next year.  My wife definitely will not want to drive that distance in the P15 but who knows what might happen.  I wouldn't show the 48 it has a 6vdc negative ground alternator and the engine is Chrysler blue.  I know wrong, wrong. but good driver.  If it wasn't for me the car would be in the crusher.

I did everything except the final paint.   Spent $$ on paint which over time blisters in spots ?

Long horror story...  Might have it repainted if the 29 comes out as expected.  Breaks my heart after 8 years of weekend work.
