Re: PCV Valve???

Good info. I'm more concerned with the blow by greasing up the undercarriage. Perhaps a simple filter of sorts in the road tube would collect the grease and allow the gasses to release.

THANKS ALL!!!

This forum is great. I guess no need for the seats.

Does anyone have a good source for the hardened exhaust valve?

Hardened Exhaust Valves???
Home away from home

When rebuilding an engine, it is possible to install hardened exhaust valves and seats so that the unleaded fuel will no longer burn up the exhaust valves?

If so, can anyone suggest a source for the valves and seats?

THANKS ALL!!!

PCV Valve???
Home away from home
Home away from home

Packard 1948
I was considering adding a PCV valve to a 1949 Strait Eight. To do this I would need to seal up the breather and I could tap into the intake manifold for the vacuum port.

The questions are:

Has anyone done this and would provide any advice?

If I simply braze up the roadbreather and tap into the intake, do I also need to add a filtered opening to allow the air to circulate through the engine or would normal blow by be sufficient to run the PCV?

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

Engine Rebuild Service???

Does anyone have a suggestion for an engine rebuild service provider in the Bay Area California?

Some exhaust valves are burned and the rings could stand to be replaced so it will be close to a rebuild.

Pulling engine and transmission together???
Home away from home

I am going to pull the engine and transmission on a 1949. I am concerned with the length of the engine/transmission/overdrive length and weight being an issue with the cherry picker. Has anyone done this?

1948 22nd Series Transmission Rebuild with R-11 Service Needed
Home away from home
Home away from home

Packard 1948
Hi All,

I'm new to the forum.

I am looking for a transmission rebuild service for the three speed manual transmission with R-11 overdrive.

The trans was working fine until there was a time when the trans seemed to get stuck with no forward or reverse gear...the engine would stall when the clutch was released so the transmission was "frozen" internally.

During trouble shooting (rocking the car forward and back) with the engine running there was a loud "clunking" sound when the clutch was coupled and then the transmission worked however the overdrive stopped working. Apparently the R-11 overdrive had "frozen" and therefore did not allow output of the engine power.

Now the car will operate in all three forward gears with NO overdrive and then when the over drive is set to engage the output of the propeller shaft will stop however you can still hear when the clutch is engaged that the internal parts of the transmission gearbox is moving however there is no output of the transmission.

Does anyone know of a reputable transmission re-builder in the San Francisco Bay Area of these transmissions OR know of a source for rebuilt transmissions?
