What is the proper torque for the nut on the yoke? My book says a preload drag of 25-30 inch pounds, that does not seem tight enough for the rear nut that tightens the nut on the pinion. I didn't know to mark it with paint before I took it off, but want to torque it to the correct tightness. Any help is much appreciated...

So, I have a '40 Packard and an OD tranny from a donor parts car that my granddad had. I do not have any electrical components, only the actual transmission, and the overdrive unit.

Where would I begin on a control module? Would a 3.92 ring and pinion be appropriate on a car shipped to Denver CO designed for altitude?

Where do I identify the model on the OD/tranny?

Thanks for any assistance, I have had the same idea about converting a non OD '40 into an OD because I have the tranny and unit.

What is the correct adjustment? I have a Ď40 and am going thru the rear end and brakes. I donít have the postwar manual. Is mine maxed out or never been adjusted?

So Iíve looked through the manuals and on this forum, but found nothing. Who has done this job and how do you get the key way out? I cannot get the rear drums off..

Does anybody have experience with gasoline heaters as to a lack of heat coming out of them? When you turn mine on the fan kicks on, but no heat comes out. Is there a thermocoupler or some sort of igniter that gets fouled up with old fuel?
