I ran into these on my way up to Elkhart.

The Caribbean (that is my assumption) looks to have been repainted and not buffed yet. Missing a lot of chrome. At platers hopefully.

the other was identified as a '27 truck but it was a cut down 4 door. I think it was at Auburn recently.

My book is 3/8" softbound (paper)repro. I think the original one had many more pages.

Thanks for the help. Super 8 Transmissions are covered on pages 102 thru 105. I have the short version of the Manual. I don't see anything like what you mentioned. Is it only in the unabridged version?

I just got a Packard script backup light and was trying to figure the activation switch and the mounting bracket.

I assume the switch works off the shift housing, probably off a rod. The bracket I assume is off the drivers (left) rear bumper bracket. I think it would be easy to fabricate if I knew what it looked like.

Anyone have a photo of either?

Thanks

Bill

My Cormorant is attached by machine screws. Is there enough of the chair legs to thread? Another approach might be to epoxy/JB Weld studs (cut the head off a machine screw) into the chair holds.

You could probably pop rivet to the chair but I don't like to do anything to expand pot metal

Brian,

Good to hear from Down Under. My neighbors used to live there and they have a sign at the street with Outback painted on it and an arrow to their house.

I will try your WD and pad trick. Good advice on tossing it. I have gotten in trouble before using my wife's (it is actually ours, but I am the only one with that view) oven to heat bearings and the freezer to shrink them. Very bad tongue lashings followed when discovered.

Here is the threatened horn button photo.

There is pitting on some of the banjo "strings" so I am guessing it isn't stainless

Brian, Joe and Howard.

Thanks for the info. The murkiness is clearing somewhat.

Ok, parts book lists a Antiqua Tan and/or a Gypsy Brown wheel for 1603,4,5,7 and 8.

My guess is Gypsy brown.

Both my hub and column are chromed so there is not paint to match I guess. The rim may respond to light sanding and a clear of some sort. It is pretty stained at the moment.

Working on the horn button pic.

Thanks all

Bill

Thanks for the info.

The hub is the problem, it has some pits in it. Are the spokes stainless?
