Re: Resurrecting a 1951 Henney-Packard Parts Car

Thank you! Everything about a Henney-Packard is larger than that in a passenger car including the massive 14" rear brake drums and 16" wheels on a 5-1/2" bolt circle. The rear wheels are also farther apart than the front making going around tight corners rather interesting.

From 1951-1954 they had a master cylinder bore of 1-1/8" in a Wagner-Lockheed FE-2539 which also has a very large fluid reservoir compared to that found in the passenger cars. Apparently this cylinder is still being made for use in tractors but has a -61 after the number so I'm not sure what the differences might be.
