Chet, I will try to get the tee if he still has the rear end. I heard back from him and he said he's not sure if the other stuff is still at the yard where he left it.  He will let me know when he finds out.  If all the remains are still there I will see if he has the running boards as well.  He indicated to me that there was a possibility that some of the stuff may have been removed as scrap by accident.

Thanks Chet.  I talked to the guy selling them today and he still has the complete front & rear ends so I may see about just getting it all.  He had fenders and other stuff as well so I may just go take a look at what he has.  He said the stuff was taken off a restored car that was hotrodded.  He didn't know if it was a coupe, sedan or what as he got all the stuff after it was removed.  If anyone out there has a need for anything let me know.  I may drive up there next weekend and have a look.

Does anyone know if a 29U came with wire spoked rims?  Mine has wood spoked rims but I have a chance to get some wire spoked with good tires on them that are said to come from a 29 Plymouth.  I'd like to have wheels to put on the car when I restore the wood spokes.

Chet, Just saw this as I've not been on for a while.  My 29U coupe has metal running boards with ribs running the long way on the underside and they appear original.  Were yours originally wood on the sedan?

Hi Gary and welcome.  I recently brought home a 29U coupe but have been busy with house and yard projects since late Nov.  I still check this board out almost every day even though I haven't had any thing to report lately.  I love your country and was in Melbourne in the late 80's. I also visited Brisbane, Darwin, Perth and Sydney on several ocassions.  Perth is much like San Diego where I've lived now for many years.
Chet has some very helpful info posted on his website that is linked on this one.  I recently got hold of a 28 Plymouth owners manual that has some info.  I will scan it when I go back to work so it can be available over the internet.

Well I won an ebay auction for a 1928 manual.  I'll let you guys know how it is when I get it.  p4jim I had tried that sight after finding it on a google search but no luck.

Chet, Yes I got the belts.  Thank you very much.  I'm going to run the one on there for a while since it was such a bear to get on.  I've been watching ebay for a book and will keep on looking.  I found your web page to be very helpful especially the section on setting the timing.

Yes, I believe a Carter came on the car originally.  I have one that I picked up but have not checked it for fit yet or even opened it up to see if it's a possible candidate to run.  The Tillotson that came with it may be a generic replacement.  The prior owner said he bought it specifically for the car and the choke and throttle all line up like it was made for it.  He didn't have the old carb.

General Discussion / Re: POSITIVE GROUND?
« on: November 25, 2007, 04:09:09 AM »
Yes I did get it sorted out.  I hooked it up positive ground and it started and ran fine.  The ammeter was working properly.  I think the prior owner had hooked it up Negative ground when he bought a new battery to try and get it running but he never did so I'm hoping the generator is okay.

Chet, I am planning on re-installing the vacume unit.  The only reason I removed was because the prior owner had already plumbed in the electric pump so I suspect there had been a problem with it. I'm also going to try and find an original carb at some point.  I was originally looking for an old plymouth or dodge to put an early hemi in but when I found this one it was too complete not to bring back to original.  It will be just as fun.
