Re: shock absorber removal

Hi postwar Packard Group.
I'm new to the group. Check in once in a while, but this is my first post.
I may need to do something to the shocks on my 47, so this thread was of interest to me.

I checked the fluid level on the shocks, and they were as dry as a bone.

I inquired at my local cycle shop about shock fluid.
They had front fork fluid in 3 weights... 10, 20, and 30
weight in quart cans. Non-foaming formula.

I filled my shocks ( 20 Weight ).......waiting and watching to see if the fluid leaks out.

I live in Northern Minnesota. Zero here today and a blizzard last night. Need to go out soon and plow the drive way.

I will be starting to work on the 47 as the weather warms up. Will be needing information as I proceed. Will make other
posts as I get into the project.
