Re: 1939 Super 8 pinion seal replacement

I'm not sure about adjusting the Ring Gear Idler manual says to adjust for .005 inch and tighten.
If I read the manual correct and your re-using the pinion bearing sleeve you just need to tighten the nut down until you get 2 to 2 1/2 pounds of drag to rotate the pinion shaft.
You can go over the manual here: http://www.packardinfo.com/xoops/html ... cemanual4650/Section2.pdf

Don't know if this will help, but I have a video on removing the Flywheel Cover.

Yes, with two day service, it's no problem getting a special tool and I also like telling the wife about how much money I save just like when she goes out shopping and starts telling me how much she's saved.
But sometimes the old country boy comes out in me. Grew up 8 m8les from a small town and 36 miles from the big city. Just couldn't run to town for parts, repaired a lot of stuff on the fly.
O'well just a thought, most steering wheels aren't that hard to get off.

Kevin, here's what I used to remove my Steering Wheels. I would put the nut back on and tighten down the two bolts, a little at a time. And it would slowly pop off.
Oops! In this photo I use those two washers and a wrench as a spacer to tighten down.

Going though old photos and found some showing how to run the hoses in the engine compartment. Here they are.

Re: 1948- 288 Fuel Pump Rebuild

Sorry, I forgot about the vacuum pump on the fuel pumps, never did one of those, so I would not know about them. I've only worked on the basic fuel pump only. Those are very easy to work on not too much to them.
Best of luck!

Well so much for that, tried to repair the leak in the core and then another leak appear in the general location. Tried a couple more times and gave up. Found a repair shop and the guy said he wasn't surprised, because of the way the units are put together. He said that the tops are usually removed as a whole and then cleaned and reinstalled to fix a leak. So I left it with him, should be ready next week.

I think that I've only rebuilt two and didn't have an problems. Pretty straight forward, I think the pivot pin is taper and only comes out and goes back one way. And the other thing to watch out for is installation. Making sure the arm is in the correct position and add a little lube.

Interesting information about the insulation and the use of asphalt. Thanks Howard!

So moving on, fixed up Dual Steamer Heater core to check of leaks and found one. I'll start the repair tomorrow. Hopefully it will be just a little solder job. Now I know why the hoses weren't connected up.
Added a few photos showing the bubbles and also use a little soap.

Okay, anyone wants it, come and get it. You can stop by Graceland as an excuse to come pick it up!
