Re: The Duchess Project: 1940 Super 8 Convertible Sedan

Thanks much.

It looks like the long one would go on the passenger side where the exhaust would come down through the large hole? Which end is front? Does anything go through the driver's. side?

Do you know the official name or Section of the '35-'41 Parts Book I might find them? I couldn't find the listing for them in vendor catalogs, either, possibly I don't know what cluster of parts they are associated with.

If anyone has a photo of them installed, it would be a big help.

Any additional info about them would be a help.

My son blasted and primed the splash pans I got from Joe Block in Washougal WA. They need some repair, but before I take them to the local body shop, he advised me to be sure they line up correctly. Also I want to get the correct fasteners for them.

Problem is I don't know how or where they are listed in the Parts Book. I read somewhere, probably here, that these pans create a draft that helps cool the engine. Cooling anything these days is increasingly important.

If brakes are adjusted too tight, the lights and brakes can come on with heat. The fluid expands.

We had a nice country tour in Maryland last weekend June 5, The "Orphan" Tour. Here are some Packards on that tour which included Harper's Ferry and an excellent dinner at the volunteer firehouse.

Re: 1942 "160" turn signal & brake wiring problem??

Howard is right 100%. I periodically use a wood skewer and fine steel wool to clean the bulb sockets, grooves, contacts and bulbs. Do one and see if there’s a difference.

Yes, kudos to Ross. He saved my clutch. He saved my overdrive. And he does it with straightforward logic. Why don’t I have that?instead of going on an Easter hunt every time I have a problem. Bless you, Ross. And the You Tube videos at your Speedwell Garage are great, too.

Re: What are these for the interior of my 1940 160

Taking another stab. Since I don’t have a metal top and interior, I would look there. The tacks look like the ones that retain welting around interior edges. There might be wood or tacking strips associated with the edges. The surface looks meant to keep a grip on fabric. I don’t have headliner. Perhaps the metal strips retain that. Or ashtrays. Or interior trim strips on the doors. But I’ve had every nut and bolt off my convertible and do not recognize these parts, I think they must be specific to a 160 non-convertible model.

I've had every part of my '40 160 conv . sedan apart, so I'd say these are peculiar to a closed car interior. Certainly those tacks are for upholstery, which could be exterior depending on the model.

Re: rear hub caps

Thanks for that service letter. It gives the specs and the means to correct the problem.
After I lost a cap, I was advised to apply friction tape. I added it to the prongs and have not lost a cap since. Maryland freeways, especially around Baltimore, have huge, dangerous potholes, big enough to bend a rim. Coming back from Annapolis on Tuesday, I hit a wide deep chasm of one I didn't see in time to avoid. But this time the cap held.
Since Kanter sold out of the hexagon/script reproduction caps, I've bought a few used back ups. I wish they would make another 200 because I'd get 4 to keep on the shelf for showing the car.

Being under the car, up or down, and draining gas from the plug is not fun. Maybe get 3 5-gal plastic gas cans and use a syphon. Then a 2-gal and funnel that fits easily under the car after you get out as much as possible. Loosen the tank so you can tip it toward the drain and into the funnel. Ace has the stuff.
