As previously noted, I will have a set of 160 hubcaps at Hershey. Also a set of 160/180 tail lights if they are on the list. My spaces are GAF 20-24.

that would be amazing for some of the stuff we need.
Can you describe what can/cannot be reproduced on a reasonable basis? Most of us cannot afford to hire an aerospace company..
Materials, machining capability, etc?

Thank you.

OK, I'll put it back on the pile. As for proceeding without pulling too much more apart, stock up on SeaFoam engine cleaner and lots of cheap oil to run through the motor....several friends of mine swear by the seafoam... lots of discussion out there on resurrecting motors in general.
And somewhere on this site there is discussion about oil flow pathways on the 356 motors via the oil filter, etc. You might want to look that up as well.

gear in hand, will send.

I concur with the obvious, need to pull the head, play with the valves and likely re-ring the pistons and clean the bores. Clean, scrape and powerwash everthing possible. Be careful to mark/inspect the rod bearings, you likely re-use unless necessary as replacements are expensive, hard to find and a path to an expensive overhaul.

Yes, the oil pump can be removed externally.
My GUESS is the camshaft sprocket fractured as a result of stuck valves. Its a heck of a sprocket too, cast iron..
I don't think any of us would be surprised with stuck valves, common.

Carter WD-O 531S. Drat, I sold a decent rebuilt one just a couple weeks ago that had been hanging around forever to Kanter. Is it Packard? Only in the sense of the jetting and the linkage, otherwise its pretty much just another WD-O made by Carter from around 37 to 50. Watch out for Buicks with a 3 bolt base, and 282 Packards with offset bolts in the base.

I also advocate for Daytona or other professional rebuilder.

AC. Same as Chevy, except the Packard latch ring behind the nut is shallower or longer, don't recall which and it doesn't matter. I will pull out my box of glove box locks for 36 in the next day or two, I'm confident I can figure this out. stand by, DAF

Its not a huge job. removal of the wiper arms from the towers depends on whether you have trico, anco or some other wiper arms, but in all cases, its just a matter of repositioning them on the splined shaft. no muss, no fuss.

Oh, and not sure where you are on runningboards, but I do have a pair, rust free metal. Not easy to ship...come get them at Hershey.

Once again I will be driving 1400 miles each way with a truckload of parts I don't need

Today I walked by my stack of 35-38jr steering columns. $75 each delivered to Hershey? Price a cross shaft when you need one....

I'd rather come home empty....yeah I know, dreaming, but if you are going to Hershey, lemme know what I can bring you?

Oh, and as BigKev can attest, I've still got a few starters...and a couple generators.

I think we try to be gentle on Newbies, but hey, you want the gloves off, the bolt should be painted red, your runningboard trim is upside down, and I prefer the wipers to the inside position when parked., and we're not even gonna look at your turn signals...
