Off The Hook - CPPC Information Resources for Members

By Phil Lapin / Technical Coordinator with Gary Rusher

Parts Book"I know they made it, I have one in my hand and the number on it is XYZ 123." We have all been in that place where we have something and we want to know what it is, or we need to find the correct part to finish our project.  Parts identification is a big part of restoring or rebuilding any project. It is also critical for identification of parts sold on Ebay or the swap meet to generate revenue for our club. 

One of our members, Gary Rusher, has acquired a large supply of old Mopar parts and is working to identify them. In an effort to help with this he has started a collection of official parts books. He would like to have a complete set covering all Plymouths up to and including the P15's or later.

In addition to parts books, Phil Lapin has several Service Manuals covering 1936 through 1954 Plymouth Vehicles.  He also has an "Interchange Parts" book covering 1938 - 1954 which cross references common parts for many vehicles such as Mopar, GM, Ford and other producers.

A complete list of these books is available on the CPPC website.  The list covers what Gary and Phil have to date.
If you have parts or service books that you don't need anymore, and want to donate or sell them to the club, we would be interested in adding them to our reference materials. In this way all members can take advantage of this knowledge base. 

Another possibility is if you have specific books you would like to keep, but which could be of value to the club, just Email us with the titles.  We can then put them into our database and call you if necessary.

If you want to know a parts number or have a part you need to identify just give Gary a call ( 503 939 9320). He will be glad to help you identify what you have. Likewise, for help on technical questions call Phil @ 503 816 5644.
