No question, not essential but best results are obtained doing a valve adjustment with the motor hot and idling.

Another famous Packard murder case which hasn't been mentioned in a while was the murder of Packard owner and hobbyist named Chapelle and the simultaneous disappearance of his 1934 1106 LeBaron roadster, the two events apparently related. The story is in one of the old Cormorant issues. As I believe all the legitimate 1106 roadsters (4?) are accounted for, one must be the former Chapelle car though I don't ever recall reading the case was solved.

Anyone want to dig into this and refresh the story?

A while back I performed some routine preventative maintenance on the folding top mechanism of my 1956 Caribbean convertible. I did this by removing the rear seat and side panels. I see absolutely no way that the complete hydraulic assembly could be serviced thru the trunk.

Kevin, the exhaust manifold runs at a much higher temperature than the engine block to which it is fastened. Thus it wants to expand more lengthwise than the block. Thus there must be a little slip allowed by the gaskets, primarily at the extreme ends. Thus, no sealant on manifold to block gaskets. If a sealant is used and it survives the heat, the result will most probably be gasket failure.

The range is perhaps the result of there being 1/6 of a rotation between cotter pin positions.

Check the video in the post by Bearsfan315 to see the difference between those recalled and those not subject to the recall. Quite obvious how they were compromised, surprising the defect wasn't caught sooner, these were apparently on the market as far back as 2013. Reminds me of the old adage, "oats that's been thru the horse once is cheaper".

Just reinforcing Don's comment, the taper surfaces must be CLEAN and DRY, very important!!

Torque the nut to spec and recheck it again after a hundred or so miles.

Brass floats are a standard catalog item at Restoration Supply. They have an on-line catalog.
