Yes and thanks. I thought there was a bit more to it than what I suspected. I really appreciate the information and am still wondering about the source of it. In my research, which I pursue prior to posting my questions for help, I am not encountering anything such as this.
Again, I do thank you for the information.

Hello. I am at the point where I am ready to put in the front window of my '37 120C touring sedan. I think this might be a two person job but was wondering if any of you had diagrams or possible installation instructions on how this is supposed to be accomplished. I do have the window seal I received from Steele Rubber already set on the window and am ready to proceed from there. I also have the sealant for it, just FYI.
Thanks to all.

I do have a question concerning the document that you sent. Did it come from the Packard Proving Grounds archives? I've looked at the information stored on this web site and could not locate it. So, from where did you get this which might then give me another source when I'm looking for something.
Thanks.

Thank you and yes, that was already on the agenda, and I do appreciate the extra advice.

Again, I thank you. My greatest fear was that the steering wheel that I bought from a third party years ago really did not go on my car. You have alleviated those concerns. And, again, I do thank you.

Thanks. So, from what I see and what you are saying, the large hex nut then can be removed by some means in order to install the banjo steering wheel. I'll get my puller back out and see if I can jar it loose, unless someone out there has another method for my first attempt would not remove the large hex nut.
Thanks, again.

Thank you for the information. I do have a banjo steering wheel which I had bought from a third party years ago because the steering wheel that originally came on the car was missing when the car was delivered to me. I'm attaching photos of the steering column and steering wheel showing my current situation. I do think that my steering wheel does fit over the spline on the column except for that large hex nut that is attached there. I have saved the attachment you sent for further study and if you do have any further information concerning this I would greatly appreciate it. Since I am limited to the size of the attachments, I'm only sending one of each shot. If you have an e-mail address, I can send you the rest of the pictures.
Thanks again.

Hello, again. Does anyone have any information on removing the hex shaped splined nut on the steering column so that the steering wheel might be installed? I cannot see where this piece slides out and over the threaded portion of the shaft. The way it appears to me is that this splined nut goes in after the steering wheel has been set onto the splines and forced into place. The second nut then goes onto the shaft after the splined nut goes on and is there to hold everything in place. However, the puller I have is not budging the splined nut. Does anyone have any "tricks of the trade" to get this off, or is my analysis of the situation incorrect?/
Again, thanks to all for any information you might be able to provide.

Installing 120 sedan rear window

Does anyone have any tricks of the trade on installing the rear window glass in my '37 120 Touring Sedan? It appears that the gasket appears to need the small ridge to the outside and not the long one, but I've been wrong in this before.
Thanks to all for your help.
