  1. 1934 Brewster Town Car

    One of the better-known Brewster Buicks.
  2. 6v to 12v conversion for automatic choke

    Why reinvent everything for no net gain or benefit? The original carburetor and automatic choke (Slsson) were a rather flawless combination that gave long, reliable performance.
  3. Two piece driveshaft

    Have it revulcanized. Steele Rubber has been offering this service for some years. Not inexpensive!
  4. Title

    Bobg, sorry to disagree but except for the very earliest years Packards were registered by "vehicle numbers"; note this is not the same as "vehicle identification numbers". Just look at the title over the blank space of the patent plate for a typical Packard.
  5. Rebuilding ignition points

    Rather that use modern inexpensive points as donors for the tungsten contact pads, you might contact one of the makers of ignition points and see if they would be willing to supply you with some. Many years ago Standard Ignition (makers of Blue Streak points) graciously provided me with a supply for me to use as you describe.
  6. There are 2 listed in the current Packard Club membership directory.
  7. '37 Data Tag Info?

    ....there are a few folks left who know that 1938 was the one pre-war year there was no traditional Packard data plate....! A minor point perhaps, but that's not entirely true. The 1938 Packards produced at the Canadian plant continued to use the traditional metal plate.
  8. '37 Data Tag Info?

    In 1939 Packard's dealer in Riverside, CA was Riverside Motors, 3583 Market Street, Riverside CA.
  9. Changing Brake Pads

    You're speaking of drum brakes so they are brake shoes, not pads. The primary shoe, the one that first contacts the drum and transfers a rotational cam-type force to the secondary shoe, will be the front shoe and primary shoes typically have shorter lining length.
  10. Rear Main Seal for a 41 Century 320 engine

    Nothing wrong with a rope seal, properly installed they will typically last the life of the engine.
  11. Trico Vision All wiper assembly

    Trico Visional wiper repair kits continue to be available from the Michigan region of the CCCA.
  12. Head Gasket Sealer

    I have used Permatex's copperized head gasket sealant for decades and recommend it highly, never a do-over. It comes in aerosol so I hand the gasket by a hook and spray both sides just minutes before installing.
  13. Spark Plugs for 1932 Std Eight

    Autolite 303. And the ferrule unscrews so you can maintain the correct knurled thumbscrew connectors.
  14. AC K10 spark plug --- modern equivalent

    Try Autolite 303, that's what I have run for many years in my '34 Packard Eight, that plug performs perfectly in my engine. Also Autolite 308 a possibility.
  15. Zenith carburetor adjustment

    I presume you already know that, while not inexpensive, you can purchase a correct reproduction Detroit Lubricator carburetor for your 902 Packard.
