Flak, does oil even go into the heads on a flathead?

Good afternoon friends,

I tool my radiator cap off today after driving around for about 30 min to find what looked like to be oil in my coolant. sighhhh. (brown sludge material)

My Packard does not have a oil cooler right? Based off of that I think its "just" a blown head gasket right?. No coolant is in the oil. Its a low pressure cooling system so that is to be expected. I refuse to even entertain the fact that it could be a cracked block or head so please don't even mention it.(haha)

Thank yíall for your input. I tried putting it in second before engaging first and it seemed to work wonderfully. I guess I donít know the ins and outs of driving vehicle that old just yet. Iím over here acting like the transmission should respond like a modern manual tranny does! Lol

thank you for you reply, i should have been more specific. While the car is not moving is when the gear grinds. Maybe i can use a heavier gear oil.

Hello all,

I canít begin to explain how valuable you all have been helping me through my 36 120 restoration. With that I have another question. When I engage first or reverse my clutch grinds. Now, if I engage clutch pedal, Hold it for 2 or three seconds before going into first it does NOT grind. Same thing if I hold clutch down, rev the engine, then I can engage first fine with no grinding. Is this a symptom of something sticking or is something broken? Clutch/ Transmissions are not my strength. Keep it mind the car has been sitting for 10 plus years and I am just now driving it again.

Any input would be appreciated.

Ok gents looking for recommendations. My wiper situation going on with my 120 is a mess. I have the vacuum motor, but i am missing the piece the wiper arms mount to, and the linkages that connect them to the vacuum motor under the dash. Anybody got a suggestion?
