Re: Transporting a '37 Packard from Boston to Louisville....

For a well know national carrier and transported in a covered trailer expect to pay about $1.00 per mile. I used Interstate the last time and the scheduling, communication, and service were very good. Go with a covered trailer, don't even consider an open one unless you are feeling lucky.

I bought this Packard Cable display sign off of eBay a couple of years ago at about one-half the price you are talking about.

Re: Bearing "crush", thin-wall inserts

Question: Is the bearing crush a one time thing, or can it be repeated? The reason I ask is if it is a one time thing, then taking down rod or main caps to inspect the bearings and journal surfaces (as has been a long standing practice) would mean the bearing would not have the proper crush when the...

Sounds like you may have deposited a lot of rust on the top of the radiator core. Try reverse flushing the radiator. Make up a fitting to go from garden hose to the bottom outlet connection of the radiator. Have it be a good fit so the pressure and flow will force water out the inlet connection on t...

Re: Description of Classes the PAC Uses in Shows and Events

Dave, You are welcome. I understand you are the moderator and not the webmaster. This site is a rich resource for those interested in Packards and deserves to be maintained and updated as needs are identified. One more thing to pass on: The clock on the home page is broken.
