  1. This carb is not for the 1925-26 Third Series which has a spark plug in its chimney and mounts on the side.
  2. I have several of these bushings which I would like to find a new owner, but do not know the application. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Many thanks for the pointer. Yes, I called Tom and he has one.
  4. Anyone out there have a distributor cap for the 656J for our '27 SIX ???? I would be interested in NOS or excellent used. ThePackardMan@gmail.com
  5. Will correct to label pic and edit....
  6. Just for comparison, here are 3 pics of our 1937 Packard Super Eight 1500.
  7. Oooops..... My error....I spent some time today trying to clean off the label and see that it is a PH-122...I guess for PHilco???? This was the best I could do today without disfiguring the diagram.
  8. I have this radio which has no identifying plate on the outside, but a schematic on the inside indicating it is a PA 122. Certainly there is someone out there who needs this box more than I do, but I would like to know how to advertise it. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. Wanted: For new research project...Original or clear copy of .Fifth Series 526 and 533 Bill of Sale....Dealer Service Invoice of any other dealer documents dated July 1927. Please email me at ThePackardMan@gmail.com
  10. Maybe I can help, but please clarify what you mean by 'panels'. Sunday I willbe able to pull out what I have and send you a few pics. Which sedan are you working on? 1003, 1013, or 1014?

  12. Offering this pair of headlight supports, which I am told, are for a 1937 Plymouth. Hopefully someone can verify the application by the part number that is on the underside. $40 plus shipping....
  13. I see all the antifreeze/ coolant MINIMUM ratios listed as 50-50 which protects down to -34F. So if you live in warm climates like San Diego, Houston, MIami, why do you have to protect down to -32F? Isn't it adequate to use 25% solution to 75% water? What is the real drawback? corrosion protection? lubrication? ...or is it a ploy to sell more product?
  14. I just discovered this thread and need to add my 2 bit experience. We have a 1937 Packard Super Eight. Several years ago it started foaming when I would drive 45mph for 5 minutes. It NEVER overheated. I tried all suggestions of a, pouring some anti-foaming chemical into the radiator b, buy a kit that can detect if combustion gasses are getting into the cooling system. c, change coolant solutions. I tried the first two with no success. Finally, I decided to just go back to basics. I brought the car into my shop, removed the water jacket and cleaned all the rust off the cylinders. ThenI removed the upper radiator hose and filed all the rust stalactites and stalagmites off the top fitting to the radiator, and the adapter to the head. I put it all back together....and now I drive at any speed I want ...for as long as I want....with NO foaming. Ihope this method will also help other collectors out there who are frustrated with foaming.
