My Klaxon 12C on my '29 (supposedly correct according to the parts catalog) is an ahh-oo-gah horn with the rotating motor.  So what part is the "agitator"?

Is the agitator the flat diaphram vibrating piece or something else?

Doug, from the pictures, that is a nice looking roadster and nice price, too.

Old Man, caps for sale: Don Summer, 105 Kinross, Clawson MI, 48017.  248.435.6115 or 435.2916 no web or email.  From "The Plymouth Bulletin" Parts Reproducers section.

Advertising 28-29, 31-32 parking cap; 31-32 goddess; 33 goddess (lock-on) and hood ornament; 34 & 35 ship.  Did not list a 30, but might be worth a call.  I bought one for 29.  Very nice, and you pay for it!


I've got a repro by Don that I've had for 10 years that is beautiful...not cheap, but well worth it and it looks better on the car than my "repaired" original!

If you need a cap, I would definitely invest in one!

frankp - is that your engine compartment?  Looks great...are those the correct colors for everthing?  My vacuum tank and air cleaner are both black...

No return line...pump has been on the car since 2003.  I have a new one just like it as a back up.

My Carter 6v pump is rated at 6 psi, so I am hoping and assuming the regulator is keeping the pressure under control...if it ain't broken, don't fix it :)

Is there a 6v pump out there that put out 2 psi where no regulator is needed?  Just wondering...

Thanks Ian and Craig...

Years ago, a 6v Carter fuel pump was installed on the frame near the tank (with a see-through in-line fuel filter installed between the tank and the pump).  I am going to leave the pump in place and just wanted to "clean up" and possibly re-do the lines.  There is also an older round metal fuel pressure regulator (Chicago Rawhide) in-line on the frame 2-3' before the carburetor...set on #2...not really sure if it works or not.

Besides all that, the car runs great and if you saw my earleir post on distance driving, just came back from a 200+ mile trip over Thankgiving.

Anyone else on here using an electric fuel pump on their old Plymouth?

No one on here knows or cares to share?

Can someone tell me what the correct size fuel line is for our cars?  Also, is it the same size from the tank to the vacuum tank and then to the carburetor?

Well, the trip to and from was a success.  Over 200 miles of great driving and perfect weather...very happy with the car.  I brought several hand tools, a gallon of distilled water, a quart of oil, car cover and detailing supplies for the show.  Didn't need anything other than the detailing supplies!

Also had my GPS to check the speed.  It turns out I'm only 2 mph off.  40 mph on the speedometer is 42 on the GPS.

Here's my homemade license plate holders (with '29 New York plate - car came from NY - and Daytona Beach topper) installed on the headlight bar.   I wanted to make this happen rather than wait indefinitely to find the right (non-existent?) parts:

What's the furthest distance you've driven your old Plymouth?  For me, it's only been 40 miles one way with the total trip only being about 115 miles.

I'm thinking of driving to Ormond Beach/Daytona Beach FL his weekend from Orange Park which is 90 miles one way...I'd be off the main roads and would stop occasionally to "check on things".   I'm thinking it will take me 2 1/2-3 hours.  Weather is supposed to be perfect!
