1934 thermostat

I got a new one from Max Merritt. Any tricks on changing it out? Any pics and instructions out there? Plan to use penetrating oil on screws.

Just a little nervous. Doesn't look like there is a top or bottom so assume it doesn't matter. Thanks

mechanic recommendation

Can anyone recommend a mechanic within a couple of hours of Pittsburgh PA to work on a 34 packard and a 53 Caribbean convertible top?

Thanks

High compression Head

I have been going through all the documentation on my recently acquired 1934 1100 and the engine has a high compression head on it.

Was that a dealer or packard option? What does it do in terms of engine performance? Were they a common option? Any other info would be appreciated. Thanks

NRM stamp under passenger seat.

I was playing with my 34 packard and noticed this stamp under the passenger seat. Anyone know what it stands for? Thanks

Oil drip

After I turn the car off, oil comes out of this tube. It appears to be connected to exhaust manifold. a nice puddle develops before it stops. Is this common? The car is a 1934 - 1100. Thanks

1934 interior light

I want to check to see if the bulb is burned out. Can some tell me the best way to remove the lens? There seems to be a frame around it. I attached a picture. Thanks
