Re: MUFFLERS

You might try Dixie Exhaust in Charlotte NC, he has specs for many Packard models. He did my 32/901.

Front Leaf Springs

Has anyone had any luck with the re-torque of leaf springs ? My 32/901 is 1 in. lower on the driver side as measured from the bumper ends.

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

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...
