Re: 650 19 black wall tires with redline

Nor sure if they ever had redlines on 650x19 ? however Wayne Carini does a silver line on black wall tires using a old fashioned roller pin stripe tool.

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.

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...

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
