Re: 1941 Packard Henney ?

I know this a very old post but I have some comments. It is my understanding that the Henney side-mounts were different than those on Packard due to the larger tires but I don't know if the wells were larger or if only the covers were different.

Re: 1951 packard info

I would have thought so too but if they were cast-steel, they were quite porous. The plater also thought they were cast-iron and didn't even want to try plating them but I talked them into it by the simple fact that they had been plated before so could be again.

Re: 1951 Henney

Every '48 to '54 Henney-Packard I've ever owned or seen, and I've owned and have seen quite a few, have used the same key.
