Re: recore radiator

Hi, Bear,

My son took my old radiator to Mac’s in Oregon, the place Don mentioned, four years ago. I moved to MD last year.
I drive my 1940 Super 8 every day and the cooling system, with the replacement specs on the attached invoice, performs beautifully.
I subsequently added a parade fan in front of the radiator but I use it rarely, except when I come home and plug the car into the charger, plus open the bonnet to reduce heat on the hood paint.
I don’t know what model Packard you have, but I suspect costs might be about the same.

FROM THE ENGINE/FENDER pan. thread:
"The splash pan situation on 16th series and later Packards never ceases to amaze me because servicability seems to have gone out the window."

"I did some work on an 18th series car where they very neatly cut the pans in two. Why it took Packard until 1941 to do that mystifies me."

"Anyway, what you need is a Lisle brand pitman arm puller which you can get at the auto parts store or on Ebay."

"On my '41 180 I disconnected the drag link from the pitman arm & took out a couple shifter links before I could get that *%#@ pan off. ( This was with the car jacked up & supported on jackstands. )"

SPLASHER MODIFICATION? Since I'm taking these to a body shop to weld and patch, I'm thinking they should be modified for easier installation and removal.

Just how were they "cut in two"? How is the '41 or '42 different? (Just asking, Guys. Inquisitive minds want to know.)

I have what's in the photo in Post# 1022. I hope that's all there is.

Which manual has there description? The 160-180 Owner's Manual? I'll share what you've said with the mechanic. Thanks again. I'll take some pix with it on the rack.

Thanks, Todd. Beyond the call of duty. This will help a lot in getting these on right. I colorized the splashers. I think I got all of them.

Everything you wanted to know about the Engine Splasher Assembly in one thread.

BDeB you are too kind. So they are called Frame to crankcase Splasher Assembly listed in the Engine section. I’ll get the correct fasteners for them. Thank you so much.

Bill,

This may be too much information, but I put some photos together for removing the axle.

You might start at post #469

Just about every problem one might have doing this, I had.

Looking at a thread titled "Engine/Fender pan." from 2011, it appears the steering arm has to be pulled on the driver's side to install the left pan.

Tim and West had some advice on that thread. I would very much appreciate any help identifying these 2 parts in the Parts book and any under carriage shots of them installed.

After they are repaired/painted, I'll be taking them to a shop with a lift for installation.

Thanks much.

It looks like the long one would go on the passenger side where the exhaust would come down through the large hole? Which end is front? Does anything go through the driver's. side?

Do you know the official name or Section of the '35-'41 Parts Book I might find them? I couldn't find the listing for them in vendor catalogs, either, possibly I don't know what cluster of parts they are associated with.

If anyone has a photo of them installed, it would be a big help.

Any additional info about them would be a help.
