Were these engines originally painted silver and if so than what years would have been this correct color and if not silver than what was original. Thanks

I am very sure that the 28 & 29 were black with a silver head.  The trademark Silver Dome.  Just when they painted the whole engine silver you may want to pose that question on the POC site.  

Sorry I now realize that you were speaking about the Dodge.

I am sorry for the delay, not worth explaining except I have alot going on. I would like to offer what might be of assistance Chet and you can post it as you say.
Would someone please tell me who PLY33 is on the AACA site, I dont understand why people dont use their first names so we all know who we are dealing with.
He made ( has made ) some very good posts and one in particular stood out to me and I would like to know if he posts here as well and who he is by name. Thank-you

P.S I dont normally collect too much Plymouth memorbilia unless it has something to do with something I am working on and these bulletins just came to me with other literature I was purchasing/ requesting as a package deal.
Some of them are well into the thirties, some of them are original and some of them are photocopies. There are only maybe 25 or so, maybe less maybe more
They all have good information but maybe the later bulletins have no place here on this site. I do hope the information will be usefull to some of you guys.
I cant send them all at once because of time but can do my best with what time I have.

I understand because I usually have more going on then I can handle.   I could post any related bulletins in the Tech Section maybe you could send a scan of 1 or 2 at a time.  Sometimes copies are really heard to read that’s why I have transcribed some information but here again finding time to do the work is the hard part.

You can email to

I believe ply33 is Tod Fitch.

His website:

Thanks Chet…

So, just to be clear, the arms on the driveshaft and the arms on the differential are to alternate or overlap with one another and NOT line up with each other like it looks like I have done???



That is correct.., the arms should not be bolted directly together.  The disks provide the connection and allow for off center flexibility in the drive train.   This was probably why the bolts seemed to be to short when you assembled the rear disks the first time.

Good Luck, Chet…

No.., It should not be metal to metal.  The purpose of bolting to the disks is to allow for a little give in the joint.  The arms should straddle each other.  Sorry I don't have a picture.  Look at the connection on the transmission.  Unless that one is also incorrect ???

The disks are supposed to flex to compensate for differences.  You didn’t by any chance bolt the metal driveshaft to the metal differential drive.  Sorry I had to ask and I am not even sure if that is possible.  

Ok.., here is something more realistic.  The driveshaft should be on an arc tangent with the differential.  If the differential has shifted or twisted on it’s spring mounts this might possibly create the excessive wobble.


Hi Gary !
         I would prefere my spokes to ride on the hub rather than the bolts and they also have to be press fit in and will take load better ,I would say that. Bolts would be there to hold them straight against hub not load bearing down,but then I could be wrong.

I agree, As far as the spoke length is concerned are the hub diameters the same?  I would think not.



Who is doing the work ?


PS... Wayne if they can ship to Oregon they might just as well ship directly to Australia.
