I looked at the parts book and the wingless one is 15th series only. Part number 235097, for the base

The '38 one is 235961 and has wings and it is the same part number as the '39.

All 3 series (15,16 and 17) use the same emblem 235096.

I looked at my car and found no holes in the outer trunk lid but a large and smaller hole in the trunk lid inner. My car does not appear to have been repainted and there is no evidence of filling in of any holes in the outer skin.

I noticed the winged Packard 12 holder and emblem. Can someone tell me about it. My car was very complete but it didn't have that emblem and I don't see anywhere that it might have gone. It does have the round Packard Twelve red and chrome round badge on the trunk rack.

Was '38 Different?

Interesting body as it is devoid of the rear quarter windows, the rear window looks smaller than my 1608 and it looks to have had some form of partial top cloth/vinyl covering.

That theft number is just over 2000 numbers later than my 1608.

I assume it has a floor shift, not column?

Riki,

Ok, I got my 4" aluminum disc, MIG with Argon and 5356 .035" aluminum MIG wire and an .040" tip. The grade and tip size help negate the need for a spool gun. (sort of)

I think I will preheat on a small grill and have a go at it.

Wish me luck.

I have been using these to recut valve seats.

A quick rotation will show if the seat is ok, then lap the valves if it is.

Riki,

I noticed some structure that enclosed the impeller. You don't happen to have any pictures of what it looks like with the pump out?

Thanks

Bill

Riki,

Thanks for the info. How thick do you think the aluminum is behind the pump impeller? I ordered a 4" x 1/4" aluminum circle and was thinking of cutting out the back and welding that piece in.

Riki,

Thanks for the suggestions. Did you have any issues with the MIG welding? What I was going to do is inset a 1 5/8" OD stainless tube in the ID of the water outlet, fabricate a ring of aluminum to slide over it and weld/epoxy it to the remaining housing.

On the water pump area, I was thinking of either filling or cutting out a circle and welding a new circle in. That is kind of why I was asking abut the MIG experience.

Bill
