19" Wire Wheel needed

I need one 19" Wire Wheel for a 1932 Packard, fits 650x19 tire. Do not necessarily need a lock ring, but wheel must be road worthy. Gary

Re: Packard 1930 - identification

First I would check the block temp with a infrared temp gun, and try to isolate any temperature hot spots. If the radiator is truly clean, then the next culprit might be the water jacket. On the right side of the engine is the water jacket cover. Removing this is not a big deal, but be careful reins...

Re: 32 Oil Pump

Photo of broken roller bushings on my 32/901 engine. Many of the 16 total rollers had the same issue, so was overdue for this service, glad I caught this before it was too late.

Re: 32 Oil Pump

Dave: Definitely was the cam rollers, some bushings came out in pieces. Fair warning for anyone with a suspect cam roller issue. New ones do not have separate bronze bushings, just plain bearing surface of the hardened steel roller which should last longer.

Re: 32 Oil Pump

Yea, I thought the cam roller might be the culprit also, especially as the oil pressure increases. My parts list only shows the bottom end of the pump not the drive gear. I know there are bushings in it, so that was my target. Interesting thing happened however, I went to a car show today about 15 m...

32 Oil Pump

Does anyone have a cut away of the oil pump/distributor drive gear area for a 32 Standard 8 engine ? I have developed a woop, woop, woop sound to the ear at idle. The sound becomes a soft knocking sound when I use a stethoscope at the center of the engine just below the valve cover. I suspect the ca...

Re: 34 1100 standard 8 transmission

Adam, just a note to tell you that your suggestion was spot on. I did as you suggested and it went from 4th to 3rd as easy as going up. Thanks for the info. Took a Top 10 trophy on Saturday to boot.

Re: Comfortable cruising speed for a '29 Packard

I drive my 32 straight 8 at 45 to 50 on open roads, but never 4 lane interstate type high speed roads. With mechanical brakes and mechanical steering it is just not a good idea. I also avoid crowded 2 lane state highways and keep a good distance between the next car ahead. An accident in any of thes...

Re: 34 1100 standard 8 transmission

Thanks Adam, I will try that. Car is up on stands now, so it may be a couple of weeks before I can test that.
