  1. Hello Schoppi, Your English is better then my German. I am a 74 year old retired mechanic and tinker my days away in the old car hobby. I will sell my Plymouth axles for $75. each. I would buy two and you would have a spare. Send me your city and I will get a quote on the shipping. I have a 1931 Chrysler rear end apart in the shop now. The axles are different but they use the same bearings, cones and seals as the Plymouth. I have been working with the owner as where to find the parts. I checked my local NAPA store today and they can order the cones new for $10 ea. The bearings are shown on American E-bay at different.prices. The cone # is Timken 14276 and the bearing # is Timken 14138 R You can find the bearing on American E-bay under that number. Do you have your parts removed? These rear ends are not user friendly. The end play shim washers are under the inside race, this means that to change or set end play you have to remove the inner race, In doing so the inner seal gets ruined. In 1936 Plymouth changed the design and moved the shims to the outside. I will be very busy the next month and away from home a few days a week. Attached is a picture of my 1928 Plymouth Q, yours Don Feeney
  2. Hello, I have a axle if you are unable to locate one. The bearings and races can still be bought along with the out side seal. The Plymouth club list of vendors can help you. yours, Don Feeney, Ohio USA
  3. Hello Larry, I am building what I call a Vanderbuilt racer much like the Famous Locomobile " Old 16" which is now in the motor city. I plan to use as many period parts as I can find. I'm starting with a a 1914 Cadillac chassis with RH steering. I would like to find a set of 34 x 4 wood wheels/tire rims. I could go smaller depending what becomes available however I would like to stat in the 1905-1912 period. I enjoy building things from pieces that many people would throw away .Attached are photos of the 1922 Studebaker Big 6 racer that I have just finished. It started life as a touring car, was converted into a truck and set for 40 years. When I bought it 7 years ago it was beyond restoration. However I had a vision of a dirt track racer that was built "Back in the Day" I have the same winter here in central Ohio that you do in Michigan and it keeps me busy in the heated workshop. Can you help or point me to someone who might have a set of wheels, thanks for your interest. Don Feeney 740-816-4284
