Got the exhaust manifold installed yesterday- brass flat washers, lock washers and 5/16 - 24 nuts. I went with the OEM gaskets from Max Merritt , using a small bead of Permatex Ultra Copper on both sides of the gaskets. The intake manifolds for the 840 are three separate pieces: two smaller horseshoe shaped pieces and a large central barrel that connects to the carburetor. I went ahead and bolted all three together prior to install, but now itís quit heavy and bulky- gonna be a two man job to bolt it up to the engine! Any thoughts or advice?

Tom, from Prairie Auto Porcelain just sent me a photo of my finished manifolds- theyíre so pretty, Iím tempted to hang them on the wall just to look at!!

They do great work- canít wait to install them.

Was able to drill out and retap the broken stud hole. Just got some Packard green paint (Bill Hirsch) to touch up around the manifolds. Will post a photo after all complete. Thanks for everyoneĎs help!

Decided to go with Max Merrittís brass nut/washer set- Kanter also recommends brass, but they were out of stock- Cheers!

Ha Ha! For what itís worth, the manifold nut and washers ffrom Max Merritt for an 840 are brass- they list the same brass nut for 1930-36 Standard eight and 1930-39 Super eights according to their catalog

Quick question- does anyone know if the manifold nuts on a 1931 Packard 840 are steel or brass- same question for washers. The ones I removed were steel.

Thanks

Tim- thanks for your thoughts. Prarie Auto Porcelain in Minnesota apparently does an initial ceramic coat and then a final porcelain coat, so hopefully it will be a bit more durable. For now, Iím keeping the car as a show car, so hopefully the porcelain will last a while. I agree for driver cars, ceramic is much better, but the porcelain pops so cleanly when intact. Iíll post some photos when complete.

Many thanks to all who have responded. Iím relieved to hear that these stud holes werenít blind holes but are in contact with the water jacket.

Iíve never heard of Gasoila products. Looking at their website, they seem to have a sealant for just about every application. They make two gasoline/ethanol resistant types: the Soft Set Thread Paste with PTFE and the E-Seal Thread Sealant. Anyone used both of these- preference?

I suppose Permatex Ultra Black would work well too.

Thanks again!

Thanks Ross- what sealant would be best- I assume a non-hardening sealant would be indicated.

Thanks
