General Discussion / 30-U coupe
« Last post by Russ T. Fender on November 19, 2019, 06:32:40 PM »
I have an early 30-U coupe with the rectangular rear window and need to replace the cloth insert in the roof.  The current insert is an obvious replacement and I am looking for pictures of the correct insert trim and material.  Also, my owners manual has a wiring diagram that show a dome light but a footnote says that the dome light is in the sedans only.  When I dropped the headliner there are wires running to the area where a dome light would be located but there is no evidence a dome light was ever there.  Did the coupe have a dome light or not?  If it had one, what does it look like?  Thanks.

John,

It attaches by two bottom bolts.  I don't think a PA radiator will work with the 29 in that the hoses attach differently and probably mount differently.  I have a spare radiator that was in my car and setup for the 29 thermosyphon engine.  The only problem with this radiator was it didn't have the hole for the crank.  Outside of that.., it looked and worked great.  You can have it for shipping costs.  Also I have the surround for it which the bottom was repaired with bondo and painted with chrome paint.   Didn't look bad on the car But I have since acquired a better replacement which was re-chromed.  If you want them you can have them.

The picture below is the car in 2007 with the parts I described:

Some more picture from the assembly of gearbox
@chet, the Babbitt bearings was inspected and checked they were at very good condition.
So we desided not to changed them. We think they maybe has changed this bearings before.
The car has not been used for very long time we we got it.

Hi
Does anyone have any picture how the radiator is attached to the frame?
The hole in the frame looks strange..
The radiator that was with the car has a PA number.
Does this radiator fit to this car?
Thanks,

Thanks ski. I think now the only thing in question is the oil line.  Dave posted about another car for sale. Looking at that motor compartment it seems to verify pretty much everything but the oil line.  Interesting stuff.   Most likely manufacturing line switched the connection point from the pump to the opposite side of the engine.   Probably par for the course in 29 - 30

Yes Chet, my oil line attaches to a port in the side of the block just below the starter as shown in the second picture. The third pic shows it comming through the fire wall under the dash. I'm going to move my speedo cable to where yours is when convienient.

I am in Jupiter Florida and believe me closed car transport from the midwest to Florida ain't cheap.  I'd have a lot more cars in my garage if I could get them shipped for under $500.  They get $1,200 to ship a modern running car from New York to Florida.
