  1. Welcome aboard Melissa. Good to see another 1933 Plymouth owner here. Where are you located in "CA" (I assume California rather than Canada)? Good summary of differences between PC and PD. FWIW, I am the Plymouth Owners Club's technical advisor for the 1933 models. Most of what I've learned I've put on my vanity website at https://www.ply33.com Worse than that, there were a bunch of running changes, especially on the PC/PCXX.
  2. Escape from visiting art museums for a little drive in the Tuscan countryside near Firenze (Florence for us Americans). Not sure if the photo will upload from this phone... Edit: File upload doesn't seem to work on this browser on this phone. I guess you'll have to wait until we are back home next week to see it. :(
  3. There is/was a separate "standard parts" list with that information. In the really old parts book it was also in group 18. I've transcribed the version I have into the database at https://www.ply33.com look under parts. Sorry that I am not giving the whole link but I am on my cell phone only for the next few weeks and it is a pain to go back an forth to copy a URL. Anyway, if I've got it, you can search on the part number and get the description. Or you can browse group 18.
  4. Remember: No requests or offers of parts to buy, sell or trade is allowed in the general forum. Use the classified ads area and/or PM facility. I've edited the request for sources to remove the direct ask for parts and removed the responses individual trading. Is there a NAPA near you? If so, they may have one in stock (or next day delivery) that will work. See: https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/ECHVR27?partTypeName=Voltage+Regulator&keywordInput=voltage+regulator
  5. If/when I get around to doing this, I'll need a different type of bracket too. Apparently the really old engines like mine have a different arrangement for holding the factory bracket on. But the general idea of using a spin on adaptor designed for a modern spin on bypass filter will remain the same.
  6. Gray area. I believe that when an ad is created there is an automatic announcement post that is made. Not sure which forum(s) it shows up in as I normally have my browser set to show me new posts regardless of the forum it is in.
  7. There has been a number of parts wanted posts made in the the regular forums. Remember that any such request must be made in the classified ads area. Any made in the regular forums will be deleted. Thanks!

  9. Those fittings had to cost more than just buying some tubing. Only thing that comes to mind is that some PM must have had a pretty full odds and ends drawer so the fittings were free (i.e. already in the junk drawer).
  10. The locals were saying that the summer blend switch over was going to happen around the time I returned to California. So I guess they were on winter blend.
  11. FWIW a few years back I discovered that the "crap california gas with lots of nasties in it" was better than Arizona gas. I was not expecting that. I took a 2000 mile round trip in the '33 from the SF Bay area to Tucson and the only heat related gas issues were in Arizona. First full tank in Arizona started the problems and the first full tank west of the river cured the problems. This was in the spring so the ambient temperatures were only in the 80s and the California desert was basically the same temperature as the Arizona desert. I did a little research when I got home and discovered that California limits the volatility of gasoline and apparently that made the difference.
  12. And the stand is on a jack so they are using it as a "jack stand".
  13. And little slivers of tape are shed when the fittings are screwed together. Those slivers are not what you want going into places with small passage ways like a carburetor.
  14. Wow! My one experience was much less painful than that. But that was back in '98 or '99 and a whole generation of DMV clerks have come and gone since then.
  15. Your photo reminded me that I wanted to ask you about the J1772 charging cable connector you are using. I was under the impression that it was a North American standard and that other parts of the world used something else. Is the J1772 also standard in Australia? Or is your use of it based on using some North American designed components?
