1940 Pelican Wing Installation?

Hello All,

Can anyone tell me how the wings of the 1940 Packard pelican hood ornament are held in place? One of my wings is loose and will come out easily, which I obviously don't want happening as I am driving down the freeway! It looks like it may have been held in by epoxy. I have read different posts about the hood ornament having pins that slide in somewhere in the body of the pelican, but I don't see any pins. I have also read about a wedge that somehow holds the wings in place. Where are the wedges located, and how do I remove them to install the wing back in place? Thanks very much for your help!

Thank you both for your replies. I was hoping that I would not have to remove the entire hood ornament. It should not be that big of a deal but I have trouble doing anything these days! The one wing that came out looks like it may have been broken off at the end that holds it in, which I presume explains the epoxy "fix". I will try the PI club store as I know they sell replacement wings.

Thanks again for your help!

Jim
