  1. a few years back, but you get the "picture"
  2. I prefer keeping the split in the rim up. Lessens the chance of water getting in when washing.
  3. Here's what your '29 Plymouth contact looked like. The insulation was disintegrating on mine, too. Looked like rubber or plastic to me. frank
  4. Woo Hoo! What Fun - good for you!
  5. Moving out of garage, could you use the engine as the brake? Not running, in reverse to back down the hill and then chock the wheels? Completely unfamiliar with your master cylinder, but I was advised to use brake assembly lube on all rebuilds. I'm guessing you used this too. Your work is amazing. Good luck. frank
  6. Great work. I'm appreciate the expertise folks have here. Hope Florence is kind to you, yours and everyone else in her path.
  7. I used Red-Kote on my Kingston. Purchased locally.
  8. For what it's worth, I like the polished. Great work you're doing. frank
  9. Don't recognize your tank, but here's a picture of my Kingston.
  10. Congratulations! What a thrill that was. So special to have your granddaughter there.
  11. Ingenious method of attaching modern coil. Think back to your '29 Plymouth. I mounted my back up on the angle iron supporting the cowl, from passenger door frame to firewall. Good and secure and out of the way.
  12. A bit late to this party, but here is my latest experience. Drove 1200 miles round trip to Detroit Jul 24 - 30, 2 days out, 2 back in my 1929U Plymouth. My start-up pressure was about 30 and dropped to about 25 when hot with Shell Rotella 30. My Kingston vac tank is supplied from the OIL-VAC pump. Only issue I had was with the internal corks sliding up the shaft. This allowed gas to be sucked into the oil causing a decrease in oil pressure, naturally. Never noticed any decrease in pressure when I've run out of gas.
