Cleaning Whitewall Tires

Does anyone know the best way ro clean whitewall tires that have started to turn brown? The tires are fairly new, but have brown around the edges. I've used SOS pads and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I just wonder if there is something more effective.

1940 Air Conditioning

A friend of mine, a former '39 Packard 1708 Coupe owner, sent me a YouTube clip about Packard and A/C.
"This Day in History November 4,1939,First Air Conditioned Car"
Pictured in the clip is a 1939 Packard..
I'm guessing that the poster just put in the wrong photo and that the car would have been a 1940 model as I believe the first A/C was 1940.

I need to clarify this as there is $0.25 at stake.

1948/49 Cormorant Hood Ornament
#35

A friend of mine sent me this request:

I have a 1948/49 Packard cormorant hood ornament. It looks like the body was gold/brass plated and the wings were chrome
I need information on disassembling the 3 pieces; it appears they have 2 wedges inside that hold the wings in place I am looking for some help in pulling out the wedges. I did find one good blog on the web, but I am guessing there are a couple different styles and that blog refers to a single wedge driven between the 2 wings. Again mine has 2 wedges. Any ideas or insight appreciated.

Can anybody offer suggestions?
Thanks,
Gordon

I have tried to respond on my iphone; I don't have my laptop. I wanted to say Thank You for your reply. I did search past postings. Looks like no cross pin, just a press fit. I'll get at it later today and see what I need to do. Gordon

Thanks Owen_Dyneto.
I was hoping that was the case.
Do you have any suggestions for the best method of getting the king pin out of the axle?

733 King pins

I am replacing one king pin in my 733.
I am hoping to press out the king pin without taking the axle out of the car.
Is there anyone who has tried this?
Or is it just a bad idea?

1941 Packard 180 A/C Compressor Bracket

I have a friend who is looking for an A/C bracket for his 1940 180.
The compressor sits on top of the bracket which is mounted on top of the engine.
It has access holes for 1 or 2 spark plugs as well as holes for cylinder head studs.
If anyone has one or knows of one, please email me.
Thank you.
Gordon
