Are you a member of the Plymouth Owners Club and have you tried the tech advisor for your model year.

You can find the POC on Facebook and at:  http://www.plymouthbulletin.com/smf2/index.php

General Discussion / 30-U Firewall

I am looking for pictures of a correct early 30-U firewall so I can close up any extra holes in the firewall and mount the correct Kingston vacuum tank in place of the Stewart vacuum tank that was substituted for it by the previous owner.  Thanks

General Discussion / WME Shackle
« Last post by chetbrz on October 10, 2017, 04:17:34 PM »
I thought this was interesting any comments would be appreciated:

I am working on cleaning up the rear suspension on my 29 and my rear leaf spring shackles are marked WME Pat. 1921 - 25  They look and work exactly like the Tryon Shackles.  I could not find any reference to a Manufacturing Co. WME in my 1924 Chilton Automobile Directory.  Another Mystery ??



Also the leaf spring shackle plates are marked Right (Passenger) and Left (Driver's Side).  I have yet to determine if there is any difference.

Cheers Chet...

Hello  , Chet
  In a continuation of a discussion at Hershey on paint colors . When I said about light blue primer . Attached is a pic of the other Dodge '31 build pickup cab with light blue under black and interior green . Since it shows up in only the cab section of the truck and your composite cab . Can this be that manufactures primer and not a former color . Your page 6 shows it well .
   Any other examples out there ?

I don't know.  I think Walter P. was a waste not, want not, type of guy and liked to use what was left on the shelf.  I've been known to mix some paint remnants together and get a room done for free.  Another mystery or another practicality ?  Might have to ask those "History Detective" guys.  We need to find an expert on early 20th. century manufacturing.

As far as primer goes my understanding is that it provides a consistent and neutral surface for the top coat.  The lighter or darker primer I believe can affect the appearance of the outer paint but my knowledge is minimal in this area.  Maybe someone else has a comment.
