Geoff57,

I have not repaired my roof yet, the work posted has all been Chet. I have just taken a few pictures and measurements.

See his details here > http://www.1948plymouth.info/1929/Work_files/2017/08312017.htm

and the main thread here > http://www.1948plymouth.info/28Q29U/index.php?topic=1102.90

If there is a specific original part that I can measure or take a picture of let me know.

Good luck!

 Also there is a connection from the drivers side head bolt through a grounding block attached to the firewall.  This ensures good grounding to the cowl and dash assembly which is partially insulated by the wood framing. 

Hope this helps,  Chet...

Are you talking about about piece under the brake reservoir? I believe its purpose is limit the engine from twisting (torquing). It's rigid and has vibration damping, (shock absorbing) material behind it. I believe its insulated electrically.


I have the strap at the battery, goes straight to the frame. And the other strap Chet talked about on the passenger side.

This thread came up at a good time. I have been experiencing harder starts, starter struggling when gas starts entering (Choke). The lights are dim, I just figured they always sucked  :o. A few weeks back at the Nowthen show I left it over night, at the end of the day (total darkness) I was driving it across the grounds and noticed with the lights on it didn't have enough juice to run the horn.

Think I'll start with a clean up of all major electrical points of contact and see what happens.

Dave - thanks for pic.   Looks like battery connects to frame and starter switch and another ground from transmission to frame on passenger side?

I'm curious as to what is correct even though I'll probably wire up the way I have for now with bigger cables.   Would I need the other ground off passenger side?

No grounds on my transmission, the cable on the passenger side is the speedo.

I believe mine is a flat strap as well. I'll take a look later to confirm.

More like impossible to find. (in a usable condition)

There is a guy that used my good handles to recast and make new ones for members here. If you search it, you can find the thread. Or if you want contact info we can provide it. Think you are a ways away from those finishing touches. But if you decide to keep and it redo the car, order them up!

Tom beat me  :)

Key lock handle is on the passenger side. (mine was and I believe it is correct based on past discussions)

It is funny the different feedback you get from people. Some enjoy the story, some want to tell you a story. At one point I think Frank and I at the same time had 2 different people telling us individually how they like our car for how he finished it, or how cool mine was raw.  ;D

Didn't spend a ton of time sitting by mine, (was out both Friday and Saturday) but managed to hear about a half dozen "Don't ever paint that car!"

Met Frank for breakfast Saturday morning, we were doing our part to represent early Plymouth's in the car show portion of the Nowthen Threshing Show. Few laughs, few beers, some smart talk, fun day over all.

(I know someone will ask, the blue car in the far left of one of the pictures is a 28 Pontiac)

I never did price it. I forgot all about at the time, my focus was getting the axle bearings replaced and dealing with the busted pinion gear retainer.

Whats pricey? I guess I have no idea how to assign a cost to an odd ball bearing. I don't remember what the axle bearing setups cost.

If you have the serial number handy call cuttersales and see what they say.

I had every intention to replace the bearing at the time, but spaced it. It has been back in service with no issues. I think I pulled mine a part with simple hand tools, so I wouldn't say it was pressed on, bit of a friction fit. If you look at the pictures below, I actually reassembled it with the bearing zerk clocked in correctly. (7 O'clock instead of 1 O'clock) But find it easier to grease from below, then taking everything apart from above. See pictures, let me know if that answers questions. I will actually be doing a little work on mine the next couple days. She has a show and a short trip coming up next week.

Could also try these guys. If it exists they can find it. I used them to get replacement axle bearings and a replacement for the front hub. they also have replacement seals of all kinds.
