well, I may have missed it or maybe it just is not advertised but I went through my latest PI News Counselor and did not find the item and neither did I find it in a parts list insert I got a year or so ago.

yeah, i think Kanter has re-pop water snouts listed in his magazine but not in the Packard-only list. if i remeber rite its about 45 bucks. All we need is a housing 3" between mounting centres and a snout with a 1-1/2- 2 inch OD. the Packard hose is 1-3/4 ID but if the replacement is smaller (within reason) it can be sleeved with a piece of radiatior hose. Its not clear to me why packard used such a large hose anyway since the T'stat only has about a 1" hole in it fully opened.

THICKNESS of the mounting flange is an issue for those with air-con mounts that bolt to the top of the water outlet like the original factory air-con bracket.

Keith, et al: re: thermo housing on 55-56 V-8. The one that came off the Panther (nee Clipper 352) was pretty badly corroded, so I face the same problem in getting a good one. However, my new Dad-in-law is an oldtime retired mechanic with a full machine shop garage behind his home. He is very interested in the Panther project and maybe I can convince him to custom machine some otherwise unavailable RePO parts. Sheri & I are traveling down to Phoenix tomorrow AM for Easter, etc, so I'll talk to him about such things at that time. Goodness knows, we could all use a friendly, understanding (read favorable to orphan cars) competent machinest for one or few-offs now and again. cool.gif" border="0
