Ski,

I am not sure if a shop manual exists.  The 1929 Plymouth Instruction Book or operator’s manual has a lot of technical information.  If you don’t have one they come up on eBay frequently so keep an eye out.  I am in the process of doing an OCR redo of mine which I will make available online to this group whenever I finish it. 

For example see the link to the Distributor section:

If you find anything let us know.

PS… did you get the belts and were they any help.

Chet, Yes I got the belts.  Thank you very much.  I'm going to run the one on there for a while since it was such a bear to get on.  I've been watching ebay for a book and will keep on looking.  I found your web page to be very helpful especially the section on setting the timing.

my 1930U instruction book came from books4cars.com.  Looks like a 29 engine to me, no water pump or fuel pump.  not cheap but a big help.

Well I won an ebay auction for a 1928 manual.  I'll let you guys know how it is when I get it.  p4jim I had tried that sight after finding it on a google search but no luck.

An original 28 Instruction manual is pretty neat.   It looks the same as the more commonly found 29 book.  You may find some differences with the Master cylinder picture or diagram.  The Motor in the 28 looks slightly different then the 29, but functionally everything else should be the same.

I saw that book and almost bid on it,  I’m glad you got it.  It should be an interesting read.  It seems the folks in that time were more prone to self maintenance then in today’s use it once.., throw it away society.
