Wow, thanks for the info Chet.  Didn't think to check the book (which I have!) and just looked at what I had on the car.  So I wonder what the difference is in all three and I assume the J and Q would work since the D does???

Ted, Read the document I attached.  There is a difference in the starters J & Q because of a ring gear change to the flywheel.  No info on the 710-D

Hi Ted,

The 714-J is the correct started for the 28Q and 29U. 
See Master Parts Reference 1928 - 33 in the Back of the book. The United Motors Service Section starting at page 27.

The 714-Q for the U29-30 Finer 30U PA PB

I didn't see any reference to 710-D

see attached document below:

Also I did a search on Delco Remy 710-D and it appears that it was normally used in CHEVROLET-CHEVY-1927-1928 There was also some reference to John Deere tractors.

Well, I'm glad when mine was done they used plenty of assembly lube or primed pump or whatever before giving it to me.  I don't remember doing anything out of ordinary before starting.  In fact, I believe the last shop ran it first for a bit before delivery.

Chet, I'm sure it will go well this time.   frank

I'll let you know.  Picking up the motor this Saturday.  Fingers cross.  They checked out all the oil ports and they are all free from debris.  Clear through the mains and crank.  I really need this to work out OK.  I need a shot of enthusiasm to get going again !!

Progress, as always.  If the shop id the problem with your motor, I have forgotten the answer.  Good to get it back.   frank

Frank they had to redo #1 & 2 babbit bearings. Suspected cause lack of lubricant.

Prep for Paint - Body Work.

Well we finally got some nice weather so I was able to start the body work that needs to be finished prior to paint. 
It looks like I will get my motor back shortly so I will be able to get some wrench time during the colder weather. 
Need warmer temperatures for the body work.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

When you have a chance to look.  If you might find a set of running boards lying around I would be interested.., in almost any condition.

Cheers, Chet...

 … I do not know how to make pictures smaller(less kb) to post here.

If you are using windows open your photo in Paint Brush. (It's packaged in Window's accessory's. )  Follow instructions below.

Then save your new picture under a different name.

  Don't suppose you have part number : I have boxes of bearings that I have no idea what they are for, mostly newer
that say MOPAR but several others of various mfgs, it will be a quick search but will keep eye open as I go through boxes

Plymouth Part # 41208  Release Bearing Assembly

The bearing can be removed from the assembly plate. The inner race diameter (id) of the bearing only is = 1.8125" (1 & 13/16")
The ID of the assembly plate with the bearing installed is:  1.500" (1 & 1/2")
UGE Ball Bearing Co. NICETOWN Philadelphia PA NO. 5068 or 5063.  This number could be the 4 digit phone number used in the 20's, not sure.

Hey guys

I have decided to put a rebuild kit through my master. As it leaks out dust boot.
Wondering if anyone had some light to where these components go

1: wavy thin shim washer
2: thick rubber round gasket. ( same size of bore).


I believe the early 28Q's had a different master than the 29 & 30.  See below the picture of the 29U master.  I believe the new parts in the picture are placed in the order of reassembly.  Removing the end cap isn't necessary, just clean with solvent. 

Here is an old page from my 29 site from a repair in 2006.  Sorry out of sight out of mind.  Don't remember much about the repair.

Doesn't answer your question but maybe the pictures might help.

That does thank you. So did they always have a long ‘joining’ bar that went across the back?

Looks the same as my 29U.

I am currently using these cylinders on my car.  I got them from Andy Bernbaum when he still owned the business.  They work for sure but the rubber dust covers are a little fatter then the originals and you may find that the hub bolts may rub a flat spot on them.  Just an FYI...

Same Parts a little cheaper.
