Happy holidays to all. I encourage all to put a little into the Packardinfo stocking...see that "Donate" button over in the bottom right corner? It's that easy. I just zapped $50 into the stocking, and I challenge everyone to help as they can...things must be pretty dire here...the xmas lights have not been turned on due to the cost of power for them to be seen around the world....

Good linkages are bit hard to find due to the manner that they come through the cowl. I don't have any right now. They tend to rust/seize, etc. My recommendation is to review the offerings for electric wiper adaptation, much more reliable and effective. And if you really start looking at the cost for original minimally functional parts...well, you get my point.
Or do what I do....no wipers. And I've driven many miles in the rain without wipers too...Rain-X is a good thing.
I once drove an Auburn with electric wipers so noisy that I actually preferred no wipers at all! (I put that in for my own sanity...forum member PToet knows exactly what I'm talking about...I think we both still have nightmares thinking about that sound)

Correct indeed...and the snubber is what I call version 1.0, basically two steel strips with a piece of vulcanized rubber between. Can buy new from Steele. Or...get creative and devise something more modern. But I'll leave that discussion until after I finish my beer...

when you unscrew the horizontal screw at the bottom of the bezel, it should spread the bezel enough to loosen it from the headlight shell. pull up on the bezel/lens to remove as there is a small clip from the bezel the slips into a slot at the top of the headlight shell. Once inside, pull the reflector away from the headlight shell (3 spring clips around backside of the reflector) as you will need to handle the headlight socket from the backside as you remove the headlight bulb (2330 or 2350) - the socket is holding it in with pretty tight spring pressure....you'll see...

Do NOT be overly aggressive cleaning the splines on the wheel. In fact, do not be aggressive at all...this pot metal hub is unusually soft. Many of these wheels have been "keyed" for safety or necessity...

That additional large hexnut is essentially a spacer to compensate for the difference between the standard and banjo wheel, as the bulletin Gary K posted describes. Carry on...

Empire. Need I say more. They were provided unmachined. They were originally a PI project. PI is no longer involved. DFields in ElPaso was sorta brokering a couple a few years ago, because he was actually able to have possession - haven't heard a word since. OH, and they were in the neighborhood of 4 grand. Any more questions?
