  1. I refurbished one of these in the late 80s. Nice loaded car, the hardest part was putting on the giant hood bird decal! I sold it for $6800 and thought I won the lottery.
  2. This chain and idler setup is almost identical to that used on the Cadillac V-12 and V-16 as shown in my 32 shop manual. They did have a small note buried in the picture of the generator: "When removing 370B and 452B generators not provided with a set screw in support flange, DO NOT allow sprocket support to move away from its mounting on crankcase." I would assume what happened is the spring loaded automatically adjustable idler tightened up when you pulled the support out. They also show the same wood block adjustment technique on the V-8 gear setup.
  3. A "big" Packard is always an excellent choice and that one is beautiful. Is it original or has it been restored in the past? After you get it running and driving I would vote for cosmetic preservation, especially if it is an original car. Looking forward to your project thread!
  4. All these auctions will end tomorrow night, thanks for looking.

  6. Not sure if you can help but I am interested in removing and replacing the threaded lower section / thermometer part of a larger sized motometer without damaging the diecast body. What is the correct way to do this and are reproduction parts available?
  7. My experience with this site's marque forums has varied considerably with the cars I owned over the years. When I first signed up I had a 63 Buick Riviera. An earlier ROA only forum site had self destructed but I found a lot of interest and assistance here and I think the Buick forums continue to be among the most well attended. When I had the 28 Pierce Arrow, 32 Cadillac, and 34 Packard there was a lot of interest in the general "Our Cars and Restorations" forum but almost none in the marque forums so I went to other club related forums. Same for my 57 Lincoln and 66 Dodge. I use all forums t
  8. This motometer is definitely a modern reproduction, someone has sanded off the shiny chrome plating to make it look old. See photo for a genuine one. The dogbone cap may or may not be old and is a common aftermarket design, probably originally nickel plated. External threads most likely for a Model T
  9. Small external threads may be for Model T Ford.
  10. I owned one of these as part of a period between 1999 and 2004 when I was a crazed collector of 94-96 GM full size cars that all utilized the LT-1 drivetrain. My first was a 95 Caprice 9C-1 ex Texas DPS unmarked cruiser. It was the best beater ever and led me to buy a 95 Roadmaster wagon looking just like the one pictured. From there I bought a 95 Chev Impala SS and then a 96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham for my father-in law. These were all fairly high mileage cars when I bought them and needed some normal service but were all basically bulletproof, ran on regular gas and were a joy to drive.
  11. Looks correct. These pics from my 32 V-12 Fisher body.
  12. These auctions all end on Wednesday night, thanks for looking.
