  1. HH56: Thanks for your reply. Sorry I didn't write back sooner. I just changed jobs, and I got a little busy. I found a complete rebuild kit at rockauto.com. The kit is a Dorman MK-1. It's a nice, complete kit, too. It even had a new retaining clip. Coincidentally, the master cylinder went bad in my own 1936 Chrysler Airstream Six. The Chrysler also uses a Lockheed master cylinder but with a 1-1/4" bore. The design is identical internally. RockAuto sent me a Raybestos kit which was just as good as the Dorman kit for the Packard with the
  2. Once again, I'm working on a friend's 1940 Packard 120 sedan. I need to put new seals in the master cylinder. The piston is in good shape, and I just need the seals. The cylinder has a one-inch bore with one cup-type seal and one ring-type seal. Anyone have a source or part number? I believe the original number might have been 25. It's really frustrating. I worked in auto parts for 11 years, and we always had trays of seals. Those days are gone, and NAPA and Carquest can't even get the ring-type seals at all. If they have the cup-type seals, they ma
  3. Thanks, Joe. This is, indeed, helpful -- especially the brake hose numbers. I'm going to open up the wheel cylinders later this morning and check the bore sizes. While the cylinders appear to be the same front and back, I suspect the front cylinders have a larger bore to create more braking force in the front compared to the rear. If nothing else, I can check the condition of all the bores and just replace the seals after a good honing, but it would feel safer to have the cylinder numbers on hand in case the bores are bad. I worked for NAPA Auto Parts f
  4. I'm working on a 1940 Packard 120 sedan for someone, and I removed the shoes and wheel cylinders. I was going to rebuild the wheel cylinders from separately-bought seals and all that, but I noticed this is a Bendix brake system that several car brands shared over quite a few years. They even look like Chevrolet truck wheel cylinders from the '50s. Does anyone have factory or, say, NAPA part numbers for the wheel cylinders or kits and for all three brake hoses? If Packard shares these cylinders with cars as common as Chevrolet trucks, I bet they're still made new. T
  5. It's the stock color the car came with. The car also came originally with the Highlander interior, too. Being a Windsor, the interior metal being black is also correct. So, it's a good, stock restoration. JON
  6. The owner wants me to add some information to this ad. All the weatherstripping has been replaced with the exception of the windshield gasket. The car had some rust here and there, but it was never a rustbucket. The body man did a great job on the rust repairs, and this included brand-new rocker panels. All the chrome has been redone, and the stainless steel trim polished up nicely. JON

  8. Right in the middle of the state. The nearest town is Gothenburg.
  9. Beautiful maroon. Restored. New Highlander interior. New wiring. Rebuilt engine, bored .030 over. Rebuilt torque converter. Rebuilt started and generator. Overhauled steering gear, no wander in steering. Rebuilt upper and lower outer suspension pins. New kingpins. New brakes. New WWW bias-ply tires. Everything re-chromed. This car is very close to perfect and needs very little. It's a special car, too. This has the optional torque converter transmission. It has an M-6 automatic gearbox like the Fluid Drive cars of that time, but it has the modern torque converter that

  13. 1957 Pontiac trim parts. Located in central Nebraska. This is a large collection of parts taken from salvage yard cars in the mid-1960s. These parts were only a few years old when they went into storage, and many of them are in nearly-new condition. A few of the parts are in fair or poor condition, and I’m selling those at deep discounts that reflect their conditions. See the list below, and see detailed photos and descriptions here: http://www.jongrobinson.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=1683 Important Notes: 1. Sets will only be sold as sets. 2. Prices include shipping. Bear that in min

  15. Thank you for the identification. I didn't realize GM used hydraulic motors for their power antennas. JON
