Re: 1937 Intake/Exhaust Manifold question

Chuck, The 1935-1941 Parts List that Dave mentions has some interesting information regarding the 120 manifolds. On page 147 it shows that the exhaust manifold assembly for 1937 120's and 1938 Eights are one and the same, both years use the same part number. Similarly, the 1939, '40 and '41 exhaust ...

You're welcome, Mike. I see Flackmaster has answered your third question. It looks like sourcing the bumper shouldn't be a problem and that's certainly a great relief to you.

Re: 35-36 120 Bumper Questions ...

Hi Mike, 1) According to the 1935-1941 Parts List, page 24 (accessible on http://www.packardinfo.com), bumpers for the 1935 120's are unique to that year only and not interchangeable with 1936. Looking at pictures, the '35's have no painted stripe nor the indent for the stripe. For 1936 bumper assem...

Re: 1934 solar headlights

I would think probably not but unfortunately I do not have access to a twelve cylinder parts list to confirm this. I do have the Packard Eight Parts list for the 10th to the 14th Series (1933-36 model years.) The front lamps are listed on pages 68-70. What you refer to as "buckets" Packard called "l...

Re: Fender/ parts interchangeable on 1938 six vs eight?

Hi Joshua,
According to the parts list, welled fenders were not available for the Six. They are listed for the Eights. So most likely there just isn't enough room for sidemounts on the Sixes.

Re: Fender/ parts interchangeable on 1938 six vs eight?

Regarding the question about the fenders, the Packard 1935-1941 Parts List (page 172) shows different part numbers for the 1600 (Six) and the 1601 (Eight) front fenders. So most likely they're not interchangeable. The rear fenders (page 177) does show the same part number for the Six and the Eight; ...

Re: 1955 Packard 400 brake shoes rubbing drum

You're welcome, Dave. I'm grateful to Ladd for giving me the impetus to find out what the purpose of that screw is. I've owned the car for 12 years and often wondered why that screw was there. Mystery solved!

Re: 1955 Packard 400 brake shoes rubbing drum

My '54 Convertible has that screw and locknut; I've been wondering what its' function is, as the 1951-54 shop manual makes no reference to it. Checking further, the 48-54 Parts list does show the screw and locknut on Plate #112. On page 245 of the parts list it is described as "Set screw, 1/2-20 X 1...
