I initially posted this in postwar, but I think I should have posted here: Can anyone help identify this set of valve tappets and what they're for? I don't want to throw them away, so I'll give them to anyone who needs/wants them, f.o.b. Dayton. I'll also ship them, for the cost of postage.

I refer you to Owen's last line.

That makes sense, as the box was labelled "1931 Packard parts." However, since I'm not familiar with the innards of engines, and not knowing what roller tappets look like, I assumed these weren't roller tappet sets.

Do you need 3/4's of a set of valve tappets for your car? I'd consider accepting half-retirement payment for them!

These valve tappets came in a box of prewar Packard parts I bought. Someone mentioned that they might be for a V8. Can anyone here help me identify what they might fit?

If and when they do get identified, if there's anyone that wants them I'd be happy to part with them for only shipping cost, or FREE f.o.b. Dayton.

You will find it amazing how many problems seem to disappear when you completely replace your wiring. Don't forget to replace your battery cables. I strongly suggest a 00-gauge cable for your ground, even though it probably didn't come with it new.

I can't answer the second part of your question, as to whether that's causing your problems, but it looks like your coil is very close to if not sitting on top of an incorrectly routed heater hose. Is it possible it's getting too hot? Also, your plug wires/coil wire look very questionable (condition) as well.

I can show you what the coil looks like... I've seen reproductions of these on eBay every once in a while, but I do not know anything about their quality or correctness.

Go over there, drive real slowly, and you just may get your wish. One or two may find their way through your window!

I've read just recently that interesting and valuable collector cars have been leaving SA because of the political climate.

West, if I implied in my response over on the AACA forum that the 1st edition of Kimes had a picture of the engine, pardon me, it was a picture of the car itself.

Thanks for clarifying that up. I was totally confused as to why they'd take such an important photo out for the Second Edition.
So, JD, feel free to buy the Second Edition.

That was when Warren Packard's family took it on vacation. The car was then returned to Packard after Warren died in the plane accident. Supposedly the car went to Europe, minus its engine.
