1938 six alignment info

I took my 38' six to the garage for an alignment. He said, "we can do it but you're going to have to supply the data".
Where can I find alignment data for a 1600?

1938 1600 2330 bulb replacements?

I have a 1938 1600 with original headlamps using 2330's. Are there LED or halogen replacements that might put out more light?

The original had an upward pointing spout. I understand the new ones face straight out. How about the one you bought?

WTB: 1938 110 manifold mount heater valve

I have a 1938 110 and would like to find a head mounted heater valve. The one that has a petcock look to it.

Re: Over Heating 101

I would like to add one additional item for those of us with pre-war Packards. The butterfly valve in the exhaust manifold. Mine was stuck in the closed position and the car would overheat rather quickly.

Re: removing the radiator from a 1938 110

Removing the front end was about what I envisioned. This is going to be fun.
