Re: 2106 wheel cylinder numbers

Thanks, I need to think about it a while. By the time I modify fittings etc. I may just buy the reproductions.

Re: 2106 wheel cylinder numbers

I took the numbers for the wheel cylinders from the Wagner catalog Dave gave me. Spent 45 minutes at my local NAPA store and they could not find anything to cross reference them with. I then came home and entered the same numbers on the Wagner site - their computer responded numbers could not be fou...

Re: 2106 wheel cylinder numbers

Thanks, Dave. That is a big help. I will try locally with those numbers. I am sure those are obsolete but they might have cross-over numbers. Tommy

2106 wheel cylinder numbers

I need to replace wheel cylinders on our '47 Clipper. I have been told they can often be found at NAPA or O'Reilly but you need an EIS or other brand number. Also, been told they are the same as some early Fords. Does anyone have the numbers for front and back. If not , I will go ahead and break it ...

22nd series rear vent window gaskets( long wheelbase models)

Anyone have a short cut to removing the old rubber? I am trying to chisel it out from the inside so I don't scratch paint. After 68 years it is hard as a rock but very brittle. It breaks the lip part off eventually but the rubber in the tract does not move. I am thinking about maybe heating it with ...

Rear shock 1940 160

Our 1940 160 is a little bumpy and it seems to sag a little to the left. I think the rear shocks are shot and have no clue how long they have been there since we have not owned it that long. I had a similar situation on my 47 Custom and new gas filled rear shocks made a world of difference. Anyone k...

turn signal 55 Clipper

While performing my check list for the trip to the Texas Packard meet, I discovered my front driver's side turn signal does not work. The light does burn but just does not blink. It also works when you just have the parking lights on. I replaced the bulb to no avail. I pulled the socket out and don'...

removing outer headlight ring on '40 160

I need to remove the outer retaining ring - the painted one, on our 1940 160 to change the bulb. The Owner's manual says remove the screw on the bottom and then rotate slightly to the left. I did not restore it so wondering if when it was painted in place or put back on before the laquer dried fully...

22nd series, vent window gaskets

I bought new rubber gaskets for the vent windows on our 1948 "sedan for seven". Though I did this job on our '47 many years ago, it is not coming back to me. I thought I simply removed the door frame and was able to get the vent window out - probably forgot. it appears on this that I have to remove ...
