1930 DeSoto...part needed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My husband and I are working on a 1930 DeSoto. We have it running but now to get it moving...need a main drive gear bearing retainer. The number on the piece is T2C-6. The part number might be 42954, but not certain about that. The transmission is WG T2C-1. Any help finding one of these would be greatly appreciated.

If you cannot find the exact part, I'm sure any competent welding shop could weld this one back together.

If you are close to Denver, I could recommend one for you.

Thank you, Mike in Colorado...but it's made of pot metal and I don't think this can be welded.

 

Oh but you can "weld" pot metal.

It's called "muggy weld" and it is the closest thing to TIG that you can get with a torch.

 

Look it up on youtube..........

There is a place on the North side of Ft Collins Co that could rough cast you one of those out of that hard bronze. You would have to have it machined back to specifications but it should last a lifetime after that. That stuff is so hard it's even a challenge to machine it. Sounds like you could do a run of ten or twelve and help out others. I don't have the contact info but could get it if interested.

I haven't had time to be one here for a while but I want to thank you all for your helpful suggestions.

 

We found a machine shop that will make the part for us. With the original part being pot metal, even if we were able to find another original we may just end up having the same problem when we try to put it to use. The new one will be aluminum and so much stronger. Hopefully this will solve the issue and we will be able to get the car in motion.
