Thanks.  I ended up using a Model A one and cutting it to fit.  Worked great.

Does anyone know of a source for a new Steering Column to Dash Clamp Gasket?  Mine has worn out completely.  Thanks.

According to the Plymouth Master Parts List 1928-1934, the shock part numbers are as follows for the 30U: Right front: 1590A-3C, Left Front: 1590B-3C, Right Rear: 1590C-3D, Left Rear: 1590D-3D.  They would be Delco-Lovejoy shocks.  Please also note that this is for the 30U, not the plain old U (both made in 1930).  You may want to check your serial number to make sure your car is a 30U and figure out roughly when it was built, as there were many running changes to the 30U.

Thank you for the photos.  This is what I was looking for; I appreciate it.

Thank you kindly for the response, but I need to know what the original oil cup looked like.  It originally had an oil cup, not a grease fitting.  Any other owners have a response?  Thanks again.

   What does the rear oiler on a factory 1930 30U water pump look like?  According the the owner's manual, the water pump should have an open oil hole at the front an a oil cup on the rear.  Is it a small spring-door cup, does it have a bend or angle to it?  Is it a larger cup?  Not sure.  My car had a 4" long tube screwed in with a zerk fitting for grease at the end.  The hole is not vertical, it comes out at maybe a 15-20 degree angle, so thought I'd ask the experts what is correct for the car.  Thanks!


Attached is a photo of a repro made by Floyd Carlstrom, who sold these from the back of the Plymouth Bulletin.  Unfortunately, he is no longer in the business.  The other photo is an original spark advance label, for reference.

Here's passenger rear.  Photo is lousy, but after I took this one, my batteries died.  Hopefully give you enough info with the arm orientation and mounting bolts able to be seen.

Thanks for the info.  My handles looks exactly like the handle shown in the photo with the roadster, and it looks like raw pot metal, like that one, too.  Those are the kinds of photos that get me wondering if these roadster handles are plated at all, when I see them all in a uniform grey natural pot metal.  I would assume they were plated, but I don't have 100% proof of that at this point.

« on: March 12, 2018, 10:13:41 PM »
   I have a 30U roadster.  The original interior door handles are currently the color of raw pot metal.  I assume these would have been nickel plated originally, but since I see no trace of any plating anywhere, I am not 100% sure.  does anyone know how these interior door handles should be finished, originally?  Thanks!

Really enjoyed your posts, keep up the great restoration work!

Ok, then it is not from a 1930 30U roadster with rear-mounted tire, for whatever that's worth.

Thanks for the responses.  It looks like the only way to see what's going on behind it is to remove the kick panel in front of the hinge, which could be a lot of work, as it appears to be tacked on.  May be a little while before I tackle this job, as I have my hands full with some other projects currently.  I'll share the findings once I get to it.
