433 Skinner oil rectifier information needed

Recommended Posts

I have a 1926 433 Seven passenger limo with a skinner oil rectifier and I would like to buy one or find any pertinent information regarding the maintenance, repair and operation of these rectifiers.

Thanks for your help

The one on my car looks great on the outside, but I would like to make sure the internals are working as they should.

I think you are correct, they are almost nonexistant.

Willys Overland purchased the Skinner company in the mid twenties. The Skinner oil rectifier was an option on 1926 Willys Knights and some Packards. The rectifier became standard equipment

on all Willys Knights in 1927. Google "Skinner Oil Rectifier" and you will find a 4 page instruction on maintenance of the rectifier on the Willys Overland Knight website. Larry

Hey , Barry , I'll bet most of us Nickel Era Car drivers who don't already know your car would love to see pics. Probably most of the other guys would , too. It has always seemed to me that Packards industrial design in the '20s was more sophisticated and interesting than most makes. Conversely , quite a bit of their styling , late 30's seems somewhat conservative to me. Thank you , - Carl
