  1. Large 150 acre car property in Oregon City. Contacts are on flyer.
  2. Coker was making reproductions. Contact Jim Hildebrand Email jimh@coker.com
  3. Has anyone hav experience with Packard Carburetor LTD.? I spoke with David Frear, and he did say they had delays as they changed some designs as the yield was not good. He's quoting 2-3 months for a Deluxe 8 carb.
  4. Tom, You should had painted the rims after you installed the snap rings:o One trick I used as not to mar the painted rims is to put a few layers of duct tape lightly on the edge of the metal rims before installing the lock rings. The should protect the paint though you still may end up having to tough up the paint.
  5. I have run into the same problem as West, a broken latch spring for my 32 Packard. I got 3 different springs send to me. None of them is an exact fit. How important is getting the correct size of the spring or is close good enough? The spring I have appears to be the size of West's spring.
  6. I have the ride control knob. Would need to be replated for show. PM me.
  7. Water pump with new pulley is back on car. Hope to fill with coolant tomorrow and take it to the Portland Transmission Show. Unique event that's free and draws in about 600 cars from 7 AM to noon. So the pulley you found West will hopefully help someone else out one day.
  8. West, We took the pulley to the water pump rebuilding place and it is repairable so I think we should let the one you found for someone else. I hate to take one for a spare and just let it sit. The grey primer one looks like my pulley. Looks like someone along the line failed to install a washer under the nut that holds the pulley to the water pump shaft when they rebuilt the pump which caused excessive play leading to the damage. Thanks for your help. Hopefully I be back on the road in about a week.
  9. Looks like a 800 series big eight is the same thing.
  10. I'd like quickly as also considering whether we can sleeve the inner hub. 2nd drive of the season and got about 1 mile:(
  11. Looking for pulley for 1932 Packard water pump.
  12. Did anyon ebuy one of these repo carbs amd how did it work?
  13. I got tired of lugging around mine D80 DSLR which was bought mainly bcause of the shutter lag in the P&S. Now the P&S shutter lag is very minimal. I purchased recently a Sony HX9V. It has a 16X zoom, does 1080P video and also can do things like making a parnoramic shot simply by paning the camera. The camera does all the stiching of teh pictures together. Go to the forums here if you want to drive yourself crazy. I use the forums as usually the cream of the crop rises to the top and I choose the one that best fits my needs.
  14. Scott, Which way did you go and were you happy with your choice?
