Re: 1941 180 heater shut off

I have not done much exploring on the whole heater issue. The car is a 7 Passenger Sedan with vent grills in the back of the drivers seat. The carpet looks like it may have had a leak at some point due to some staining in the carpetting. If there was originally no cut off except the valve on the block, I can kind of see why they did what they did and where they did. The return hose does go into a valve on the block.

1941 180 heater shut off

Any idea what the correct hook up or plumbing of the heater is for a 1941 180? There is a leak in the hose that goes from the nipple on the water pump to the installed shut off valve. I’ll be replacing that section of hose with a black heater hose from NAPA but the whole thing looks somewhat jury rigged to me. The hose that is (has been) being removed is full of accumulated rust just in front of the valve for about 2 inches. I don’t plan on ever using the heater here in Florida but I wouldn’t mind improving the looks of things a little. The whole thing had been redone in orange heater hose and that shut off valve looks too modern for my untrained eye.

Re: Fan belt 1941 180

Highlander, I didn’t have to or want to replace the fan belt so with a more fearless and experienced buddy at hand, we got the pulley off and the fan belt released. It is still hanging there so I didn’t have to deal with the mount issue. In the meantime, I have been fortunate enough to add a retired mechanic to the mix. He has his own Packard that has languished in his garage (1954 Patrician) and has enthusiastically offered to help me with both my cars as he enjoys working on the older simpler cars. When it comes to the motor mount someplace down the road I was gladly enlist his help.

In honor of my father's efforts with shellac and hearing that he had it right in the first place, I will stay with shellac. Thanks for the reinforcement.

I guess I left out the part where when I called in reinforcements for assistance, he knew that the pulley was removable from the pump shaft and got that off as well as the belt and then the pump was removed. I would never have figured that out since I had not read that anywheres and because my big concern is always breaking something and making the job into an even bigger project.

In my reading of other posts in this forum from those working in that space, I picked up the pointer that I need to use cardboard in front of the radiator and had that in place and still do.

My father always used shellac but my buddy with a Model A uses RTV. That's what made me pose the question. Having access to all the Packard owners out there that are much better at mechanical work than me is a confidence booster and helps me to save a few bucks along the way. As always, I am grateful for all the input.

Back from vacation and almost ready to reinstall the water pump and hoses as well as put in a new thermostat. It’s been a long time since I was on hand for this process so I would like to just cover my bases by asking should I be using some kind of sealer or shellac for the gaskets or hose attachment points? I have removed the old gaskets and emoried the machined surfaces on the block and head.

Chris, I would be interested in what your learn about getting it repaired. Could you drop me a note when you know unless you don’t mind putting it out here.

I think I saw Max Merrit had rebuilt when I was looking to price a replacement for my '41. Some prior mechanic wedged a bolt in the connector to the unit to keep the shutters open on mine. But then, it is a Florida car.
