I love following your progress.

Two comments/questions:

1. Have you applied vacuum to your rebuilt vacuum fuel pump? If it does not shut off the valves properly you could have an oil pressure issue on your engine (assuming I recall correctly that Plymouth used the oil pump to provide vacuum for the fuel pump).

2. With all that nice paint and new rubber gaskets, don't be surprised if you have some electrical issues. I had to scrape off paint here and there on my car to get all the lights to work.

Hi Tod, Many thanks for the questions and concerns.  I hope the info below is helpful.

In answer to question 1:

The Kingston Vacuum pump contains no check valves.  The only float in the assembly works the trap door between the upper tank and the lower tank.  You are correct that the vacuum comes from the oil pump and here is where the key point is.  The vacuum from the oil pump is relatively consistent or predictable across the rpm spectrum.  The Universal Stewart pump works on manifold vacuum which isn’t consistent.  You know this from your vacuum wipers that stop working when you accelerate.  The oil pump provides predictable vacuum.  Simply put the pump is in equilibrium with the engine throughout the rpm range.  Where issues arise is when there are leaks in the system that reduce the effectiveness of the vacuum or create problems with the delivery of fuel.  In most of these cases, fuel falls short.   Problems with vacuum leaks can affect oil delivery but would need to be serious to reduce oil pressure.  Knowing this, a good eye on oil pressure is essential.  I have installed a second modern oil pressure gauge to insure accuracy.  No holes or parts were altered to install this gauge which is clamped to the steering column.

In answer to question 2:

Thanks for the heads up on ground continuity.  I have taken particular care to insure that there is excellent electrical path to ground where needed.  I check with an ohm meter and install additional ground straps where needed.  In the case of the rear tail light I have a wire going from frame ground directly to the lamp base (hidden of course).  The 29 Plymouth had one main ground strap from passenger frame to the engine.   I added a second one on the driver’s side frame.  This eliminates possible issues because of the rubber motor mounts and also ensures positive ground to both main frame supports.  As far as the cowl is concern a Dermel tool can clean the painted contact points to ensure positive continuity at electrical connection points.

BTW, I have about 5 hours of runtime on the engine with the vacuum fuel pump connected and no problems to report.  I will monitor this closely and report any issues.  So far so good, fingers crossed.

Many thanks for the inquiries they are all very help to the reassembly process.   Chet...

It is only held in by the three bolts.  You might just need to play with it especially if the dash was painted. If so breaking it free might chip the paint but it should pop out.

I does appear to be bound and not turning. I'm not sure how the get it out of the dash. I removed the 3 nuts, but its still as solid in place as it was with the nuts on. any suggestions, I don't want to force anything?

I’m not that familiar with the 28 but you could check the parts reference manual and if the transmission number is the same it would probably work.   You could also check the speedometer part numbers to verify the cable size.  Do you know if your speedometer works. The pot metal can swell and cause them to bind. That was my problem. 

Check out this thread:

Thanks for that information. I have a 28 Q and I do have the outer housing but nothing on the inside. So I probably do not have the transmission key, any suggestions on what I need there? I'm assuming the one you speak about for the 29 30 will not work for a 28?

Chet, really enjoyed looking thru your pictures. Could you tell me what or where you picked up your Speedometer cable?

I just replaced the inner cable not the whole unit.  For the 29 Plymouth the cable is 0.130" OD and I was able to buy on Amazon for $8.95 and free shipping as a prime member. (Search for .130 speedometer Cable) The cable I purchased has one compressed Hex end and a Hexed key for the transmission which I didn't use.  I reused my old transmission key.  If you have a 29 or 30U you can buy a 0.130 transmission key from Restoration Supply but you will have to use a piece of 3/16" tubing to convert the key to work with a 0.130 hex cable.  You can use BJ weld to mount the key to the cable.  I rather do that than seriously crimp the transmission end.  This way you might be able to use it again if the need arises. 



Use a micrometer to measure the thickness of your cable.  I hope this info helps you.

Chet...

Tks Tod, BTW your website has been very helpful over the years.

Hi Bill, 

I have been unsure about the color since I purchased this car in 2006.  Finally made up my mind while the car was in the paint shop.   The Blue was matched to exposed blue on the car's body and also this is the same color as a 1929 Buick and 1930 Chevy (period color).  I think it is closer to Top Gallant Blue.  I think Marquette Blue is a much darker Blue.

Info from Tod's website:

Overall Body:                 Marquette Blue  (Top Gallant Blue ?)
Beads and molding:        Marquette Blue  (Top Gallant Blue ?)
Fenders & Sheet Metal:   Black
Stripe:                           Extra Perm. Vermillion  (Top Gallant Blue calls for Swamp Holly Orange Stripe)  Another decision.
Wood wheels:                 Marquette Blue (Top Gallant Blue ?) Although Clean Wood might eventually prevail.

I think the Swamp Holly Orange Stripe will really look good with this shade of Blue.

Cheers Chet...

Prep for Paint - Continued.

It's hard to believe that on October 29, 2019 I will start the fourth year of this project.  There is still a lot to be done but getting the car to the paint shop before the extreme cold weather sets in will be a big step toward completion.  It seems that the project is dragging but each completed task gets me closer to driving this car again.  Like reaching the halfway point in a marathon.

Hi Chet!
 Nice to follow Your work!
Please: is the Distributor Base custom built in Germany?
Who did it and what did they need as data input?
Is presenting the original sufficient for them to copy it?
I had trouble to find a GOOD gas pump for my 504 Peugeot 4 dr. sedan.
Until now, I had 3, none working to my satisfaction...
My mechanic calls it "China Junk".

Prep for Paint - The Motor Returns

My motor was finally returned to me after some needed rework to the main bearings to facilitate proper oil flow to the crank and connecting rods.  Rework was done at no additional charge.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

 Hi Chet, hope it's in order, over on the faceBook page a couple had recently purchased a 30 U and I gave them the link to this page, not sure where they are from but here's her FB page name Debbie Krivoniak Sheetz

The other purpose was to give people like myself and others who are far from an existing region a place to meet and have a voice in POC club discussions.   I don’t think Mark understood the concept or how to organize the board properly to accommodate the idea.   I even toyed with the idea of actually creating an internet region for disconnected and younger more computer savvy POC members.   This might help get them more involved in the club with the possibility to maybe help each other even though they are separated by hundreds of miles.   I enjoyed the early P15D24 site and I was influenced by this experience to create the 28Q29U site.   After 10 years it’s doing well.  No ads.
Anyway I couldn’t make any headway without national buy in.  I think the emphasis was put on Facebook.  FYI.., I believe there are one or two other Internet Group members I don’t know if they are still active on the forum.

BTW.., I highly recommend your site for Plymouth: The First Decade. … Well Done!!
Best Regards,  Chet…

Hi Chet, I've only just found this and I think it's brilliant I think it's a great resource and can see many good reasons for having it available, I did try to logon but couldn't. Your detailed page on your P15 interests me as I would like to think I may have one in the future. Access to your manuals would be very useful to me I think it was to top one of you list of Links.

Here in the UK it's too cold to do much bodywork, while the 41 Pickup is ready for paint the temperature isn't so of now I'm working on the upholstery for the cab, once thats done I can always drop back on the full retrim on my 33 PD R/S Coupe. By the way very impressed with the transformation of your P15.

Off topic: Chet, I see that your signature says you are part of the "Internet Region Group". This is the first I've become aware of such a thing for the Plymouth Owners Club and I don't see anything about that on the website home page nor do I see that in a random Plymouth Bulletin laying near my computer. Who/what is that and where can I find more information? Thanks!

Technically I am a member of the Delaware Valley Region.  Although.., the meetings are a 2.5 hour drive for me so unfortunately I don’t make many.  Not an uncommon story…, anyway.

The internet region was a suggestion I made to Mark to allow access to discussion boards within the current forum that could only be accessed by current members of the POC.   This is done through the administrative permissions that are created for the discussion category.  Members without permissions wouldn’t even see these boards when they were logged in.  This would keep POC member discussions unencumbered by nonmembers.  At the time there were a lot of critiques provided to the board by nonmembers.   It’s not that I wanted to shy away from the comments I just wanted to know that the discussion comments were being made by actual club members.  You can also create a group called “POC Member” rather than “Internet Region Group (Paid $$$)” You could create groups separated by regional membership, etc.  Each of these created groups can be granted permissions.  You are a tech savvy guy you should understand what I was driving for.
