Bumper bolts size

Post by rrhorton » Thu May 18, 2017 12:52 pm

Does anyone know the size of the bumper bolts for late '20s packards? Specifically 1928 526. Know of a source for bumper bolts?

I don't know if they've got what you want but Restoration Specialties has a reasonable assortment of bumper bolts.

I could check the size for you from my 533. But which bolt do you mean? Is it the long one the goes vertically at either end, or the bolts holding the bumper bars back to the mounting brackets?

I need the ones that attach the bumper to the bumper brackets through the bow ties.

I am so, so sorry to have taken such a long time to get back to you. Every time I went near the shed, I forgot about it and then remembered when I was nowhere near.

Anyway, I do have the size of the front bumper bolts. They are 1/2" UNC, 2 inches long including the head and the nut on the back is a 7/8" spanner size.

I have attached some pics to illustrate. Hope this helps.
