  1. Thank you for posting a picture of your hardware, Are these extras? I'm interested in the two pivot blocks if they are available. The screw and chrome washers appear different from the ones I removed, what model are these parts from? Thanking in advance, Dave STAY SAFE!
  2. Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words and those pictures certainly spoke volumes, they clearly gave me the proper direction. Thanks Sasha39. I heeded the earlier "Good luck" and soaked the whole windshield in citric acid for a few days before trying to remove the bolts. The bolts came out without too much work and no incident. As recommended, a few stern alternative taps with a block of hardwood and the top bar slid out and I was able to remove the glass. I then re-soaked the frame in the acid for a few more days. It has from what I've read the usual issues around the bottom corners but over all it still is solid considering it's 89 years old, I've taken the frame to my metal guy and he's going to repair the lower corners. I'm not sure if Chrysler had the same type of seals but would anyone have or know the profile of the proper rubber seal that slides into the outside edge of the frame? I've seen a few at local shows on different makes but none appear to fit proper. I require a few items which are pictured here, I'm sure the screw isn't a big issue but I'd like to find the proper washer, oh, and the pivot blocks I require two. Thanking in advance! Dave STAY SAFE!
  3. I looked at the parts list for 28-33 and in the body parts list for the Coupe (Group 23) under the door section (group 23-D) they list a "Door bottom weather-strip" 2 required for the PB.... part # 363631.. it also list two "door header weather strips (upper rear corners L&R) for the PB... PN# 364202 for the left and 364201 for the right side.....hope this helps.....sorry no pictures Dave STAY SAFE!
  4. We stopped here in 2010 on a trip around Lake Ontario and truly enjoyed it, not only was he an early innovator in aircraft but he also was an early innovator of motorcycles, here's one of his 4 cylinder models.
  5. Thank You Sasha39 for taking the time to respond, ponder and respond again... Yes, I see it as a bolt, Is it hollow all the way through? if so, are they prone to twist off? Just want to ensure that while I'm tinkering I'm pulling in the right direction, left hand threads? Would it be beneficial to bend the washer where the indent is, to try and lessen the friction between the bolt and the pivot mount? I've tried loosening the bolts using a six point socket on a 9" 3/8 ratchet but no movement yet. One more question for now, Is the bracket inside the frame attached to the frame or is it just wedged in between the frames. Thanking in advance, Dave STAY SAFE!
  6. Hey All, Has anyone had any experience in removing and replacing the glass in the early folding windshield frames? I've looked at a few pictures of earlier Chrysler's with folding windshields and it appears they mostly use the same engineering as on the Plymouths. I'm tinkering with a PB, and what I would like to know is how to open up the frame so I can replace the rubber weather-strips and the glass with safety glass. It appears that the nut with the washer attached has an indent that locks it in place? (circled with red in the second picture) Would I pry up the washer to allow the indent to clear thus allowing removal of the nut/washer assembly???.. Also, what does that nut/washer assembly screw onto? Is there a stud or something inside the frame? I am also looking for a few bits for the pivot mounting, I require two of the pivot blocks and the outer chrome washer and screw... I have enough of these items to mount one side only. I have pictures of needed items if required. Any help would greatly be appreciated! Cheers! Dave STAY SAFE!
  7. According to the Plymouth parts book, serial # GC 346 P would've been used near the end of the "U" model run....I'd be interested in the rad emblem if you're parting it out.
  8. Agreed, the car looks rock solid, in the same picture of parts with the tail light bracket there are three windshield support brackets, the lower one in the picture appears to have the windshield pivot clamping blocks in it, I have two of them but four are required per car....would they be something you'd be willing to ship to Canada? Thanking in advance, Dave
  9. When I took the pistons out of the PB engine I noticed that three of the four connecting rods had numbers stamped in them (two of # 3 and a #4) and the other had 3 punch marks in the area of where the numbers are on the other rods, which is where the cap bolt goes through. One of the number 3's had a matching cap #3 and the other three caps were blank. If it matters the pistons that came out are 30 over. My question is, Are these numbers to indicate which cylinder the rod was intended to installed in (for balance?) or was this for assembly at the plant to match rods with caps when building the Babbitt? The only one that was in the coordinated cylinder was #4. I checked the parts book and it list one number for a connecting rod for all four cylinders and it was on an exchange program. Any advice or input would help, Thanking in advance, Dave
  10. Thanks for replying, I'm assuming that it was driving OK before it was parked 60+ years ago, the flywheel was well polished with a nice groove from a previous misadventure. I haven't had the engine running but the clutch did disengage fine before I removed it. Cheers! Dave NEEDED....PB- Intake-Exhaust Manifold Set....
  11. When I removed the clutch from the 32 I was surprised to that the disc contained none of what I believe are called "anti chatter springs". The picture in the parts book shows it should have had the springs. Before I go ahead and have this disc rebuilt I'd like to know if it was it a cheap aftermarket disc or was it used for any particular reason? Any thoughts? Dave NEEDED....PB- Intake-Exhaust Manifold Set....
  12. Top one is for a PA I believe, The two outside intake ports have smaller size holes and the carb mounting plate is also smaller than the PB intake. The exhaust looks the same between these two other than the last number on the casting, anyone have an idea on what the last number in the casting represents? Edit. These two Exhaust manifolds have different size pipe flange, The PA is available and I'd like to get a replacement for my PB, Is welding recommended?
  13. While at the POC National in Michigan this past summer I met a couple from here in Southern Ontario who had a PB sedan convertible. In conversation the owner mentioned that it had come from the south but the buyer became ill and was unable to proceed with it. The fellow mentioned that he bought it from the widow and had it professionally restored. It's pictured in the POC Bulletin #352, top of page 29. We met up with the couple again at an event for the Antique & Classic Car Club of Canada a month or so later and was given my first ride in a PB. Hope this helps,
