Hello, Does anyone know if 1936 and 1937 Packard "120" front fenders are the same and can be used on either year? Thanks

Re: 1937 120C Headliner

Since I've owned this parts car it has never had a headliner in it so I never have seen the metal bows. I have a Packard "120" Body shop manual and has a diagram of the roof construction but no mention on the headliner metal bows. Anyhow, funny you should ask about the vent window gears as I have just replaced mine this summer on the car I'm restoring. John Ulrich reproduces these in silicon bronze which is stronger than than original die-cast gears. His phone # is 510-223-9587, located in El Sobrante, CA. There is also a left and a right side gear, definitely use the silicon bronze as the die-cast always strip out.

Hello, I have a 1937 "120" Sedan parts car without a headliner installed, so I took a few photos for you. If you need other close ups etc. just let me know.

1937 "120" Flywheel Bolts
#18

I had my 1937 "120" engine rebuilt locally several years ago. I had a new ring gear installed on the flywheel and had it resurfaced, I've just realized that the shop never returned the bolting from the flywheel to the crankshaft and the shop is now out of business. I was able to purchase the correct 7/16 x 20 bolts from "Merritt" but since I didn't take this apart I was wondering if lock washers are needed on these bolts? My master parts list doesn't list any lock washers, the part number for the bolts is 300162. Just trying to avoid a future major problem. Thanks

Re: 1937 "120" Coil Spring Removal

Thanks for all the good feedback. I'm thinking now that it would be easier and safer to reinstall the engine, keep the front clip off and then remove the springs and complete the front end work. I also need to replace the bearings in the center link, I was thinking it would be easier with the engine out but sounds like it would be easiest to remove and reinstall the springs with the engine reinstalled. The engine is rebuilt and ready to go back in.

1937 "120" Coil Spring Removal
#20

I'm planning on removing the coil springs on my 37 "120" and complete some front end work. What is the proper sequence and suggestions of removing chassis parts to safely complete the removal of the coil springs? Currently the complete nose is off the car and the engine is removed so it's basically just the frame and front end. The shop manuals are not that clear on this. Thanks
