22nd series. How replace tail pipe?

I replaced the down pipe (nos!) and muffler. How in the world can you replace the tail pipe in one piece? It seems a dumb question but I cannot see how to do it without dropping the right hand rear suspension.

Many Thanks,
Sid

Re: 1948 clutch pedal will not return from floor

Yes, there was slip in the linkage. I feel silly not catching it.

Now I have to find a wavy washer for the transmission arm to the linkage. Modern ones seem to be thicker.

I do appreciate the help.

Re: 1948 clutch pedal will not return from floor

I saw no retaining clips on the pressure plate.

There is no pedal return spring on my model, 22nd series, 288 with 3 speed, no overdrive.

The pedal is connected to the throwout fork.

1948 clutch pedal will not return from floor

I have replaced the clutch assembly in my Deluxe Sedan. I was finishing up tonight and lo and behold the pedal goes down and does not return up! What can be up?

I would appreciate any help.

Re: Flywheel lock plate. 22nd series

I have some 16 gage cold rolled steel. That should work.

Flywheel lock plate. 22nd series

I took the flywheel off my 1949 Deluxe to get it surfaced. The lock plates, the pieces of metal that get the ends bent up to hold the flywheel bolts in place, got damaged. There are three of them. They are 19 ga stainless. What have others done to find them? What did you make them out of? A photo of...

Re: Replacing clutch in 1948 Deluxe with engine in car

There is not much room behind the oil pan to get a jack on it. Would a piece of wood under the oil pan be sufficient to hold the engine up and done tent the pan?

Suggestions?

Re: Replacing clutch in 1948 Deluxe with engine in car

I have used them on other cars. I did not figure the Packard had any odd size or splines. I have had a model A and 60's cars and newer. I have had car of this vintage. Lots to learn!

Thanks!

Re: Replacing clutch in 1948 Deluxe with engine in car

Thank you Dave.

I will need to position the clutch in relation to the pilot bearing and the transmission shaft. I guess I can bring a clutch and pilot bearing to NAPA and see what fits.
