General Discussion / Re: 1939 Plymouth
« on: January 21, 2013, 08:51:36 PM »
Hi Tony, and all you great Plymouth fans. The 39 is doing great. I did clean up the interior and it is not bad. (Just Letherette) I did rebuild the engine completely, new pistons, etc, from Bernbaums. Runs and drives great, may take some trips this summer as well.  When I had the engine out I took it to the body shop, after setting there for 4 weeks I brought it home and re-assembled it so I could get some driving time on it. (The body shop just did not have time to do anything.) I did put quite a few miles on this summer, very few on the 29 coupe though. So the car looks like it did when I bought it. Maybe I should leave it that way. lol   The bodyman said to bring it back in mid February, I have to think about that. I have been working on a "bastard" lol mustang convertible this winter, a 1992 model, but nice. I am installing a new top right now.  I will get back to the Plymouth in the spring. It is winter time in SD, temps have been no higher than -5 degree F for the past week, lows about -17. I am looking for spring. lol  Maybe see you all in Arizona in April?
Take care guys,

Also, I run the 6V Fuel pump, with filter before the pump. I also have the pressure regulator, however, I have never used it, So I have another Item setting on the shelf. lol   I would like to go to the Vaccuum system. I found a fellow that had 4 of them, (quite possible restorable) not very far from me. He will not part with even one right now. It is not a money thing ($ were not even mentioned) maybe it was me. lol  I will check with him occasionally, if he will part with them I will post it.  Meanwhile I will enjoy the 6V fuel delivery system, it keeps me going.
Take care.

I have used everything, from a large soup spoon to a screw driver to force back the compression spring, and a nail, a small screw driver, a pin punch to a ground down punch to fit the hole and (as Chet says "some patience" should work) It is not very diffucult.
Good Luck with that.

Keep it up Kim, you will eventually get there. Some time it is good to take a short break, then a person feels like hitting it hard again. I keep thinking how lucky I was to find one in the shape it was in when I got it. Only had basically mechanical things to fix. I am looking forward to seeing your completed project.  Take care.

General Discussion / Re: Comfortable Crusing Speed of Your Plymouth
« on: November 16, 2012, 10:37:36 PM »
Sometimes a person can not count on the speed-o-meter to be accurate. I think where-ever it feels confortable to you is right. Mine seems to be about right at 45 mph on my speed-o-meter on the 29 model, however, sometimes it creeps up to 50 before I realize it and slow it back down. The 39 model seems most comfortable at about 60 mph, by spd-o-meter. With GPS shows about 56 mph on the 39, at 60, the 29 has never had the GPS in it, I will try to do that one day. Take care

Great info all. Yes I am in SD. Lived here most of my lfe, and probable will die here. lol  We learn early in life in SD. For storage of batterys, disconnect  at least one btry terminal and check your charge monthly, and add a trickle charger if a bit low, let it charge over night. I haven't had a cracked battery in the last 50 odd years. I guess I have never kept track of how many years I get out of a battery though, when it doesnt start the car anymore I just replace it. With the price of used batterys now days, I turned in 2 batterys - one 6 v and one 12v Marine, and got 25 dollars for the pair. (From a iron salvage yard)
Thanks all

I sure do appreciate all the help. I think you have me covered. Now (I thinK) I know enough about these to get something, or other. lol  Thanks all. On my pontoon I put a solar charger on the roof, it keep all three 12V batterys up real good. I wish I could find a solar one for 6V systems.. My 1929 model is stored in a covered trailer, parked away from an 110 V electric source all winter.

Thanks Kim. I am going to have to run down to the Stores tomorrow and check those out. I also ran across an old Mustang convertible that need some restoration last week. I think I will get that tomorrow too, My daughter always wanted one, maybe I'll surprise her with it. Some thing to keep me busy this winter. We are starting to get a bit of snow today, hasn't amounted to much yet.

Come on guys, tell me where I can get a "Battery Tender".  It is a new item for me.  I never heard of that one before.

Kim, Referencing your door not aligning right.  I hope it is just the hinges that are sprung, not the body twisted. You may be able to spring the hinges with blocks, to make it fit. You don't have to move the door much so be careful. I would try that first.  My doors fit perfectly so I did not have that to contend with. Good luck with that.

Can you imagine the expertise of these workmen, wood and metal, that built these auto bodies. All these years ago, without all the modern machines, tools,  and PC's helping. It is amazing.  Kim, you are doing a marvelous job also, you maybe would have fit in with these past workmen.  Good job. I like your workshop. nice.
