  1. Hi Murray,

    I'm sorry I can't advise on your seal but notice you are in Havelock NZ. I am restoring a 1929 plymouth model U coupe but have yet to tackle the engine. I am in Christchurch NZ.

    I have a few parts that I am looking for. Could you give me an email address or cell phone as I would like to contact you some time. Do you belong to the VCC.

  2. Hi Guys,

    Can someone tell me if the 1929 model U is the same manifold as the 30U. I have 2 engines that came with my plymouth coupe , one has sharper corners on the head and I am told this is the correct engine and this would be the one that I am also looking for an inlet manifold ? I would be happy to buy a cracked or damaged one as I have experience in pattern making and if I could get a sample I could make a suitable pattern and cast one A lot of work but would give it ago.

  3. Hi 

    I am restoring a 1929 Plymouth Model U Coupe. There was no carburettor or manifold with the engine so I am looking for both parts.

    However I was told by one source ( and this is confirmed on on internet site ) that the carb I require is a tillotson FR-1.

    A reputable carb restorer/supplier in the states says the original cars had a Carter RT-08 but recommends fitting a Carter BB1 as fitted to 

    Later models. Can anyone confirm what is the correct original fitting.
