Re: Severe diff noise

Since you have gone this far, if I read this correct. I would see about getting a torque wrench and check the rotation torque. When I did mine I couldn't figure out why mine would read higher at one point than another when rotating about 360 degrees, until my brother started to take it back apart and found I hadn't seated the dust seal all the way down.

Re: drum brake removal

Randy Checkout Post "54 patrician brake drum question"

I've never tried this, but one way is to loosen the nut, drive the car on a rough road. And than when you get back it should come right off. Also don't forget to back off the adjustment for the brakes.

My first brake drum came off with a load bang and that was after it was there for sometime with out me doing anything but leaving pressure on it.

Re: Carb Problem

I agree with Ross, if and when you take the carb. back apart, you can blow in the fuel inlet and raise and lower the float and it should stop and start as the float is moved up and down. Just clean all the gas off before blowing in it.

Re: Sticking #8 exhaust valve 359
Home away from home
Home away from home

Wesley Boyer
I also had a problem with sticky valves. Sticking meaning not moving their full travel. I only found this after removing the head. But the difference with mine was the engine sat to long from the last time it was started. And not only #8 but #1, #2 and #7 also. What I found was some black tar like stuff on the valve stems(Maybe carbon and varnish).

I have heard of people using Marvel Mystery Oil and having good luck with it, just dribble a little down the Carb. with the engine running. So you might want to give it a try. I would have but I already had a tapping noise coming from the valves and I figured it would be better to just redo the top end.

Here's a picture of my #8 valves, noticed the black on the stem. They did pull out by hand but real slow.

I agree, as a last resort. But that's my next step, since I also have a stuck hub on the drivers side. Once I get my other Packard out of the way.

I have all ready tried the hub puller and heat with no effect on getting it off. I did get the other side off, with a lot of work. And when it did come off it sounded like a gun going off. Scared the (what you know) out of me. So don't forget to leave the nut on.

Re: Can't remove Hyd. Lifter from 1947 Custom Super Clipper

Wesley Boyer
Yes, I did try heat and Freeze-It with no help. So for now I'm putting it back together and pulling the engine later this Summer. This is my spare engine and not the original engine, so I'll be putting the original back in.

Thanks to all for your help.

Well, I've decide to put the engine back together and pull the engine out this summer and put the original engine back in after going over it(the original engine).

I can't find my tool for checking valve clearances, does anyone one have the drawings so I can make a new one?

Plus I found out all my spare Hyd. Lifters are for a Cadillac.
