Re: Gear Ratio

I have a 115c. Drove it today at 55-65mph on I-20 for 125 miles, Longview to Dallas, with safety margin to spare underfoot.

There are really only 2 options - referred to a V-Cell and Horizontal fin (honeycomb is cost prohibitive). Pro's and cons to both will be explained by your radiator shop.

Rick does amazing work - very quiet guy - totally talented - does EVERYTHING himself. His car in primer looks better than most professional jobs...And now back to the 22/23rd ...

email me directly at flackmaster@sbcglobal.net and I can provide his phone numbers - I don't believe he is hiding in Witness Protection or anything like that, but didn't want to publically post his numbers.

Re: Steering Gear

yes, this can definitely be replaced without removing the nose. Google 1938 Packard Restoration and you can see it done online from the DIY network. Note that part of the benchwork shows a 37 assembly (the caged assembly), but the 38 setup (arm and bearings) are the same. If you need parts, I curren...
