Craig,

If you are talking about the metal window trim pieces, they popup on ePay every now and again.  Body parts are generally a hard find.

Nice car Bob.

I think the 32 & 33 are examples of the best cars Plymouth made in the decade.  After the depression, labor and materials were cheep and the cars of that era were really spectacular in comparison to the previous 28 & 29 model years.

Welcome to the forum,  Chet...

Gary,

Does the tail pipe go straight out past the rear bumper or does it curve out at the rear wheel well.

I curved mine out at the Passenger side wheel well because there didn’t seem to be enough room to get around the gas tank.  I would be very interested in seeing how it was originally mounted

Any good shop that does re-chroming could build up the missing metal and re-chrome the piece.  The point being...,  it isn't cheap.  I have similar issues with my 29.

It's in the Plymouth Instruction Book.  Page 67 

You are adjusting for 1/16" (0.125) clearance between the drum surface and the brake pad.

If you are having something custom made you might want to measure your car just in case there is a slight difference.

Hay Doug,

A picture is worth a thousand words.  I can't wait for this cold weather to go back north where it belongs. 

Take care,

Crag,

Sorry, I was out in Delaware this past weekend but forgot to snap the picture.  Sorry but it will be another two weekends before I am out there again.

Sorry, Chet...

Dan,

My 29's body plate is HAYES BODY CORP. GRAND RAPIDS MICH.



My 1948 has a Briggs body but I am not sure when Plymouth started using Briggs bodys.

My 1948 body tag:

Craig,

I will take a picture over the weekend.  My car is in storage.  Basically mine are a slotted round bolt.  Just by looking at the bolt head I would think quarter inch.   My assumption is that they are original.

Rusty,

When I did my valves in my 48 I set them using the cold setting and the engine ran fine with no excessive tapped noise.  I never went back and did the hot adjustment because the engine worked fine.  I am a firm believer in the saying, If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Good luck,  My 2 cents.., Chet...

See link below.  I know this to be the correct lense for the 29, not sure about the 30U

General Discussion / Re: 1929 verses 1930 frame and 4 cyl engine
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:51:09 PM »
My 30U has the stright cross members, but they aren't welded. They are rivited in place.

I thought mine was a later model as it has fuel pump, water pump and oval rear widow, but the production record show it built between May 25 and June 15 of 1930. They build 30U until June of 1931 so may have had welded or x frmes sometime later.

Just some info.

Gary

I'm thinking that the hot rivet was considered a welded frame.  Just my thoughts I have nothing to support that view.
