We reproduce the later 39-47 bearings in large quantities and have found that when we send out the original thin bearings for 35-38 cars many customer's engines already have the alter rods in them or resized early rods. Like Packard we supply "Quality parts for longer life". Our bearings are made with modern babbit which is stronger and longer lasting than original.

To add to the confusion Packard incorrectly packaged many sets of rod bearings marking the boxes with 387600(39-47 #) when they contained 35-38 bearings.

On the question of whether some bearings are original Packard consider that Packard never made shell bearings,sourcing them mainly from Federal Mogul, deemed "other" by some. So bearings in Packard boxes are not really Packard, just like heaters made by Harrison or radiators with the McCord brass tag on them.

On head studs, they're not a simple as they look. The threads differ on each end, the ones going into the block are slightly larger by thousandths so as to make a water seal as they go into the water jacket. Our last batch of studs had threads that were under spec so we returned them to the manufacturer and have to wait several months for replacements. We could have sent them out and recommended using a sealer but we do not make compromises. Sorry for the delay but that's the not-so-simple aspect of supplying parts for older cars and the Six in question is 80 years old. In our shop we're rebuilding an '88 Caddy and some engine parts are no longer available...it's only 31 years old!

Re: tracking down ticking noise

Fred and Dan had a similar elusive problem with a 54, in the end we found a valve with a rusty stem making it stick a bit causing the tick. Turned out to be a tiny flaw in the cyl head letting water spray into the combustion chamber and rusting the valve stem creating gunk in the guide.

The customers original order was placed in September of 2018. Just recently he had called to do an exchange for the main in .020's and the rods in .030's. In our Packard model specific catalog and website we have stated the need to resize the connecting rods. We also than include with the initial order to the customer a service bulletin pertaining to the bearings supplied. So we did our due diligence in informing our customer through 3 different means(2 being indirect and 1 direct in the forum of a service bulletin) So one should not consider our excuse lame nor refer to us as Kmart no name calling is required nor provoked.

We are working with the customer to handle his needs as quickly and efficiently as possible. We do have the stds, .001 and .002 in the smaller sizes but for the .020" up the use of the modern bearings requiring resizing are supplied.

Good afternoon from Germany: I would also like to renew all pins and bushings at the front axle of my 1937 Sedan # 1092
Especially the top bushings are really worn out and there is no chance to lubricate them properly - see attached photo.
Can you get me an adress where I can buy some new bushings and pins?
Highly apprciate Your help

From the model # you have a 37 120 4 door sedan. It has an independent front suspension thus n o leaf springs with the trunnion block which was last used in 1936.
The upper bushings you picture are rubber thus are not lubricated. Rebuilding the front end by replacing all bushings and king pins will restore it to new car performance. The steering on '37 is unusually light and shimmy free at all times. In the center of the front crossmember is a center steering pin/bushing which is usually worn as it has no means of lubrication. All these parts are available as kits from Kanter Auto products www.kanter.com

The rear seat windshields are an aftermarket accessory used on 2 and 4 door convertibles, they make riding in the back more comfortable. Riding in the back without them is the way 99.99% of the passengers did.

Re: 1939 Paxkard Six- Convertible coupe headlight bucket

Your car was probably converted to sealed beams which eliminate the integral parking lights. It was a law you had to have parking lights so small marker lights were put on top of the headlight buckets thus the holes.

There was no trim on top of the headlight buckets on sixes
