Noticed while cruising the forum that I was not the only one that had problems with the throwout bearing guide on front of the transmission. At the time had access to the machine shop to make one and here is a copy of the print to duplicate one. Hope this helps. It is for a 1929 Plymouth U, 4 cylinder with original transmission. The square thread only returns tranny oil back in tranns.  Rich

What's the motor running like if you hook a vacuum gauge up to it, if you can get it to run for a little?

Are you running a vacuum tank or fuel pump?  Is the issue fuel starvation?  Another possibility is a intake manifold leak.  With the car running spray some WD-40 around the manifold where it meets the block and see if it makes a difference.   I was running a BB-1 carburetor with a electric fuel pump plumbed through my vacuum tank.  Ran great.  If the manifold is not leaking you are right to try a known carburetor before doing anything else as the BB-1 should not be a problem if it is adjusted correctly and it may very well not be set up correctly, especially if the float level is not set correctly.

Chet, It's 1/4" thick. Looks like the width was 1 3/8" and it hung over the sides of the mount by about 1/16 on each end. One end of mine is gone but the remaining side is this way. The height was probably the same as the mount as the only side I have remaining is missing just below the rivets.  The material seems to be ordinary hard rubber almost like old tire tread.

Could you tell me what the thickness is of that rubber piece.

That hard kind of shiny surface on the rubber bumper is just heavy paint which is probably what preserved the dried up rubber all these years.

Chet, It appears to be just a rubber bumper that is riveted on. The rivet has a round head and is attached by bending two flat shanks back against the mounting plate. Kind of like those old brass pins used to hold several sheets of paper together.
