To be on the safe side I would take the drums to a brake shop and see if the drums are turnable, they might be over size already and need to be replaced. The shoes are bonded and if the city you live in is large enough you should be able to find a shop that can bond on new lining. They do this for trucks all the time. A good shop can turn the drums and ark the new
shoes to fit the newly turned drums. I never say that is good enough with brakes.


Kevin, when you get the shoes relined, make sure you give them the drum inside diameter after the drums have been turned, that way they will be correct for the actual drum size.

Hi, I appoligise as i've hijacked this thread. Originally, I was asking about the trim codes on Ole's Executive but it morphed into a conversation about my Custom. Maybe I could move it to a new thread topic?


Phil, my questions weren't meant to be anything about hijacking, sorry if it sounded that way!

Packard Engine to GM Auto Transmission Adapters

Just saw this tonight, this company makes adapters to put GM automatic transmissions on the back of Packard V8s, the 288/327 straight 8's, and the 356 straight 8: Packard Transmission Adapters

Disclaimer: I don't know anything about this company, except saw them mentioned in Rodder's Journal and looked at their website tonight. I have not used any of their products.

My apologies if this has been discussed widely here previously. I looked back several pages and didn't see a thread about these.

He'p me, please. I'm pretty sure that this is a Clipper block and not a '34 as advertised (monoblock casting, and so on). But, can you tell if it's a 282 or a 356?

eta: If that's a casting date, then it just had a birthday last weekend.


eta#2: I think that I count 9 mains, which would have to make it a 356. Right???


Awful crusty looking on the outside, but that bottom end looks pretty good! Wonder why they didn't provide pics of what is behind the lifter covers, and under the head?

WOW! I bought mine from the Melbourne area. I be suprised if it wasn't mine as so few came to Australia. The build number is 2435 (i'll post a pic). Also it is a 57 interior code. This code is suppose to be yellow vinyl and black cloth. But only the door/side trim is black cloth. The black parts on the seats are all vinyl. Keep me posted! Would be great to learn some history on it! Thanks!


OK, I'm confused (which is not uncommon ).......Phil_78, did you purchase Ole's Packard? I thought his was an Executive?

Kevin, this fall go back and compare what the headliner looks like then with the pics you have posted. I think you will be much more pleased with your installation because the heat will slowly make the wrinkles disappear. Put the car outside on some of the hottest days this summer with the windows closed, that will help too.

Good work on this beautiful Packard, keep the reports coming. You are getting things done much faster than I seem to on my projects!

I would be good to provide location to where the car is located and the model of 1939 120. Sedan, Coupe, Convertible etc.


And pictures would go a long way to helping you sell, you know what they say about pictures being worth a thousand words........
