Good Morning...You might give David Flack, 'The Flackmaster' a call as he specializes in pre war cars. 214-549-1250. Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...Someone posted a torque chart a while back. It basically showed the size of the bolt and gave the torque for that size bolt. Hopefully, if the right person sees this thread...they can post it again. It also seems to me that there is such a chart in the old Motors Manuals...Ernie in Arizona

In my humble opinion...That beautiful Packard complete with the manual floor shift, coupled with the 356 would have sold well...to the people who were targets for the Buick 'Banker's Hot Rod' which was the smallest body and the biggest engine...as I remember. Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning and Happy New Year To All...We had a local muffler shop do Miss Prudence a few years ago...The fellow listened to Prudence who had a strange muffler at the time. One that had a pipe going in on the left and out on the right. The exhaust sound was a bit odd. We found a spot on this site with a video of a 1949 running and the muffler guy said 'OK, now I understand'. We ended up with a 36" glass-pack muffler and nicely made tubing from just below the exhaust/muffler connection and on out to the back of the car. To me it sounds just about like David Packard's 48 Packard which lives around the corner from us. It's not Packard perfect but nice and new and certainly good enough for an old girl trundling around in Scottsdale, Arizona. An added benefit...the car runs a bit cooler with this set up...Ernie in Arizona

Merry Christmas to all...Miss Prudence, just recently sent Big Kev an old fashioned paper check for $50. It went in an envelope with a stamp on it' just like it would have in 1949! Raining like a cow going on a flat rock here in Arizona this morning. Miss Prudence is snoozing in the garage! Ernie

Good Afternoon...You might check with Eaton Detroit Spring. They made the springs originally for the 48-50 Packards and they still make them by request today. We purchased a set for Miss Prudence, a 1949 Deluxe. They seems to work quite well. Ernie in Arizona

Good afternoon all...Another possibility would be an electrical sub-contractor who does big SES systems and lots of conduit bending for large commercial applications. Every city has these folks and they can certainly bend up what is needed if they are willing and I'll bet they will help out...Ernie in Arizona.

Just a humble thought. I generally call MM or Kanter and talk to them...Nice people in both businesses...James at Kanter if you pick this up can you please comment on the material for this radiator application...Thanks, Ernie in Arizona.
