Re: Ultramatic Oil

John
Thanks all. Didn't know if the new stuff worked okay for these or not. I know some say the Hydramatics used in GM cars seem to slip more with the newer stuff.
Good thing to know about the Type A oil, I had thought of buying up some, I seen it available here. But maybe not.....

Does one need those rubber "gutter" strips in the rim if they are just riveted centers to the outer rim? Or are these just essential for wire wheels?

It might be that the center section of the rim is riveted to the ring of the rim. Sometimes air will leak around the rivets if run without inner tubes. Newer rims were welded instead of riveted.

Re: Heat deflecting plate under carb

That is something I have wondered, is vapor lock a bigger problem with these cars, now that the gas has alcohol in it?? I see they are talking of raising the amount of alcohol in the coming years from 10% on up to 15%... maybe higher.

Thanks John

Re: 700R4 behind a 288/327/356

I was thinking more along the lines of improved gas mileage and relaxed rpms in overdrive for the long stroke straight 8 engines.
The early Ultramatic was pretty trouble free.

700R4 behind a 288/327/356

I see a company that makes an adapter plate to mount a GM transmission behind a Packard 288, 327 or a 356 straight 8 engine. Anyone done this?? I would th8ink this would be a big improvement over the Ultramatic transmission, especially a 700R4 with lower first gear and overdrive up top.

Re: 1951 engine identification?

I want to ask another question. For 1951 would 288 or 327 engines have hydraulic lifters if they are in automatic transmission equipped cars? Or can is it still solid lifters in a 200 series car?
