Is it the same as a 1930 CK transmission? If so, I have one.

I can't find any #s on the case. See picture?

I am not quite sure what you are asking for, but I think it is the carrier for the bearing. Those a couple of years later I think were originally sold as a unit, carrier with bearing pressed on. Is that the part?

 

A picture would help us understand exactly what you want.

 

Post 1054 on p. 43 of Taylormades' topic on the restoration of Daphne (Dodge and Dodge Brothers forum) shows the bearing and carrier for Daphne, the DL Dodge. Is yours anything like that? Further down you will see the bearing having been taken off the carrier.

 

My interchange shows the following vehicles with the same throwout bearing. Some may have something but not know the interchange.

DeSoto K, 1928-30; CF 1930; 

Dodge DD 1930;

Chrysler 52 1928; 66 &70 1930-31; 

Plymouth Q 1929; U, 30U 1930

 

These vehicles used the same transmission. They didn't necessarily use the same input pinion though.

TR72 (interchange number, perhaps Chiltons):

Studebaker, 6, 53 1930
Chrysler, 52 1928
Erskine, American, 6, 51 1928
Erskine, 6, 52 1929
Erskine, 6, 53 1930
DeSoto, 6, K 1929
Chrysler, 6, CJ 1931
Plymouth, 4, Q 1929
Plymouth, 4, U, U30 1930

Hi, was it a reproduction or did Bob have a good original for you? Just wondering how long my 1929 Plymouth retainer will hold up if I need a spare and they make them?

Glad Bob came thru for you.

There have been a few threads on these bearing retainers. The earlier ones are diecast metal the does/will fail over time. There are later ones that are cast or forged steel that are a direct replacement.

Yes, mine is a die cast and the snout broke off. 

They seem to be hard to find. but finally found one in California.
