Re: 40 110 clutch question

I wish I had an answer for you. I have the same problem...except perhaps a bit more severe. When I installed the rebuilt engine, I installed a new clutch plate, rebuilt pressure plate, new throughout bearing, refaced flywheel, new pilot bearing and new return spring. The driveline jumps and studders...

the Dreaded Head Stud Leak

I have a 110 six that was rebuilt, but I had some valve issues and so removed the head to check the valves. I bought and installed new head studs ( as a couple seemed way too short) and a new head gasket from one of our Packard vendors. I suppose from ignorance, I did not use any head stud sealant o...

Re: Radiator Removal 1940 Packard

I always pull the water pump also, so I have plenty of room to tilt the radiator back in pulling it out and going back in. If you leave the water pump in place though, just cut several sheets of multi-layer cardboard and tape them to the motor side of the radiator core. This will be a cushion in cas...

40 110 & 120 coupe bodies

I am wondering if the body tub from a 40 110 coupe is the same as the body tub from a 120 coupe. To my eye, the difference in the length of the frame and front clip takes place ahead of the cowl, and I cannot see any difference in the body tubs itself. For that matter, maybe the sedan body tubs of t...

Re: Best engine removal technique

Thanks for that link. I do not believe I have seen that one before, although I remember seeing the photo of someone with a maroon 40 removing the entire front clip. Two or three people involved would definitely be called for. With the front clip in place though, removal of the water pump, front moto...

Best engine removal technique

I think I read a few years ago that most people remove the front clip for a six or eight engine removal job, although I cannot find that topic now. Is that taken off as a complete assembly ? (both fenders attached to front radiator surround). Car in question is 1940 model. I dread the thought of "di...

Re: State DMV Inspection Stickers

Glad to see reproduction gas rationing stickers. My windshield still has an original WWII "A" sticker, although now in a brittle state. The rear of the sticker says "Drive 35 mph - save tires !" and "Is this trip really necessary?". Was reluctant to replace the windshield but it is becoming rather f...

Re: Fuel sender screw size

Thanks for the help. Perhaps my holes have junk or rust in the threads. I'm always cautious about starting a tap that doesn't turn by hand.
Will go with 10-32 then.

Fuel sender screw size

I'm stumped. I dropped the fuel tank from my 1940 coupe, removed the sending unit and had the tank serviced. The screws holding the sending unit down were mauled quite badly so I trashed them...unfortunately before I measured them for size and pitch. A 10-24 or 10-32 tap does not work....are they a ...

Re: Mice, Rats & other Pesky Varmints

I have been using the Victor ultrasonic noisemakers and they seem to work pretty well. If the unit stays on constantly, there's no evidence of entrance. If you accidentally pull the cord out, forget to plug in it or block the soundwaves, then they will be inside in short order. I noticed moderate su...
