After 5 months my 29 Plymouth is back on the road again, thanks to a  clutch off a parts car in California. 

I tried to install the 31 clutch and throughout bearing on my 29, but had problems getting the bearing guide post to line up.  I believe my transmission was repaired years ago and welded on the front, such that the bearing guide pin does no line up properly. It works for my 29 because the pin had been bent in such a way to make it work.  However, the throughout bearing on  a 31 is different and the bent pin did not seem to line up on it, and I was not sure I could modify it to make it work.  It should not be a problem with a transmission that had not been repaired in that way.

Anyway, we are operational again.

Hi Chet,
I located a 28-29 clutch pressure plate assembly and sent it to Kentucky Clutch for rebuild. It is ready for install. However, I also located a pressure plate assembly and throw out bearing for a 1931 Plymouth and it looks like it will fit. The design is more like a modern clutch pressure plate assembly, so it might be a better design.  I probably will put the 28-29 clutch in, and keep the 1931 clutch as a spare.

I have a spare rear wooden 20 inch wheel for a 29U.  You are welcome to have it for cost of shipping. I used it for awhile when I was restoring my rear wheels one at a time. It rode well, but I would suggest replacing the spoke bolts so they all look alike.

General Discussion / Clutch question

Has anyone installed a 1931 Plymouth clutch on a 1929 Plymouth?  It looks like it will fit, but there are some part number differences in the fork and bell housing, so I wonder....

That is exactly what I am looking for. That should get my car on the road again.

Trying to assemble a working clutch for my 29 Plymouth.  I have parts of three different style clutches, none complete.  Looking for either: (1) throw out bearing for 1930-31 clutch, (2) pressure plate for a 1929-30 clutch, or (3) a release finger for a 1928-29 clutch.

Thanks for the advice.  I have ordered a 1930U owners manual and hope it will have specific instructions on adjusting the clutch.

Do you have a clutch pressure plate assembly and release bearing?

I need information on how to adjust the clutch on a 1930 U Plymouth.  I am installing a 1930U clutch on my 1929U Plymouth.  A release lever broke on the original clutch on my 1929U. I have located a 1930U clutch pressure plate assy. I installed it in the car and it appears to fit, but I need to know how to adjust it.

I have four seals left. These are made by Harwal and are nitrile and Steel, with a spring in them.  I sleeved my axel shaft first, since it was a bit worn.  The Harwal part numbers consist of the size and style. These are 1.375 x 2.363 x 0.438 ADL NBR . (ID x OD x depth, ADL is double lip, NBR is nitrile butyl rubber.

See   They are still listed on their web page.  You may have to buy more than two though.  If you want two from me, send me an email.

About 15 years ago I found some new replacement inner seals. I will look and see if I have any left. I do not remember where I found them. I basically found some that were the same dimensions.
