They do resemble 1928 DB Standard Six rear fenders. Some have a rolled bead around the wheel opening, some do not. This one does not.

Hey guys hope you all doing Great, now I'm working on a spare rim, if it doesn't work I guess I'll have to buy one at the swap meet in Ok.

Oh! Can anyone identify these fenders, I think they are Dodge just not sure thanks.

Thanks Keiser 31, I appreciate you, I have a motor and transmission I'm not taking to the swap meet its off a 29 dodge, if anyone interested.

There should be a packing adjuster nut at the front of the shaft.  If it is a very minor drip of water leak, you can tighten the nut a bit.  That was normal service during car maintenance.

 

If the car was not used for decades, the packing may be too hard or stiff.  In that case, you replace the rope-like packing with new packing.

 

 

When you unscrew that packing nut out, you use thin ice-pick type tool to dig out the old packing.  Then see if the shaft is rusty-pitted where the packing was,  If it is Ok, and if the shaft is not sloppy up and down, just put new packing in with lube.

 

There is an old-time "house well water pump" place in our area.  That type of business would have rope packing.  Another place that should have something, is a "hydraulic rebuild shop" that fixes construction hydraulic pumps, cylinders, and valve bodies.  They should have some rope packing for the older vintage valve bodies.

Hi Ruben ! Long time no see. It always makes me happy to see you out having so much fun with your original old sedan. Here are a couple pics I took out having fun with mine. It is a 1927 Cadillac. I like going out to dinner with it. Ladies seem to go crazy over it also. Good to see you back with us !     - Cadillac Carl

Hello! hope all of you all doing great, well had a problem with the motor on my 31 Plymouth. I had a valve get stuck, open up the side cover tap it and it open work for a while but same problem again. thinking of switching engines to the 28-29 silver dome, only thing is will the drive match up with the 30-31. Only thing is this motor doesn't have a water pump.  

did this as last resort.

Not sure how spraying oil where the tappet contacts the valve will make any difference on a sticking valve. Seems to me that the sticking would most likely be between the valve stem and the valve guide. Second most likely would be the tappet sticking. Taking the head off, removing the valve and cleaning or reaming the guide would probably fix it. If you have a valve spring lifter and the correct size reamer, and nothing unexpected comes up, it probably would take less time to do that than it took you to rig all that plumbing.
