Hi, I just got a 1952 packard 250 convertible - gift - excellent condition, my Dad had it restored in the early 90's. i have three questions: 1.) what temp should it run at? i feel like it is overheating, but i bought a laser temp and the hoses seem to run around 198, and the block is up to 220 degrees. Is this too hot?? 2.) The car received a senior first place and had a tag with a number on it - what exactly does this mean? 3.) Also the front right brake is very and i mean very touchy. When i take it down the block and i touch the brakes, it will lock up the front right wheel and jerk the steering wheel and screech the tire. But if i slowley ride the brakes, it will make it more mellow and easier to brake. Any ideas?? Thank you for any help.
I just bought a 1928 Dodge Victory Six. I have no experience working on old Dodge's and have a few questions that I hope someone will be able to answer for me: 1. What is the normal running temperature? 2. Does the impeller on the water pump inside of the block face flat side in or flat side out? 3. The manual says to use alcohol. Can I use antifreeze instead or will it cause damage? I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.
