Cast iron alloy camshaft replacing a forged shaft, and corresponding lifter changeover. Read the shop manual, details are there including an important note about the lifter interchange.

Re: Locating a short circuit

I'd have to agree that if you disconnect the ground cable from the battery and if you hook a voltmeter on the battery ground and the ground cable, and you have voltage then you have a short somewhere or what is referred to as a parasitic draw/leak. But the question is where, and how do you isolate it? Most importantly though is heat generation and whether the short could cause a fire.

Ordinarily, if you have a fuse box and turn everything off, you can pull fuses until the voltage goes to zero, then at least you can figure out what circuit is involved. You might not have a fuse box though to work with.

How many volts are present when everything is off?

Very good and detailed explanation! In todays automotive world it would take a computer to figure all of this out in a split second. It just amazes me that they came up with such a detailed but basically simple method 70+ years ago as I'm sure they used something similar in the previous overdrives as well.

Thanks again Howard.

I have a 1939 Six with an engine number of B26543A. I understand the B indicates 39, what is the A suffix indicate?

Howard - I brought my adjusters in to NAPA when I ordered a bunch of other brake parts to see if they had anything that would work. They didn't have anything in stock and didn't think they needed to be replaced. I like our local NAPA but they almost never have the parts I need...not surprising since it's a small town and I'm the only guy in a hundred miles with a postwar Packard.

Just got off the phone with Kanter and new shoes are on the way.

You might compare your adjusters with those from Napa. They have adjusters which are labeled as self adjusting. Similar in looks and come in various lengths but have a smaller diameter and teeth on the adjust wheel. If the spring can still keep tension on the toothed wheel the smaller teeth in itself might not be too much an issue as long as a finer blade adjust tool can be used.
