An easy fix as I have a spare front engine mount I can paint green.

Thanks to all the insight on making things correct!

Thank you for the information, I as going from info I received from another Packard member. It's an easy fix to take it off and sandblast the green off and repaint it. I used spray graphite on the exhaust manifold and that leaves a very even finish that looks like bare cast iron and it protects the bare metal.

Perfect, I held the heat shield above the fuel pump and the bolt holes line up perfectly!

Thanks again

That makes sense on the heat shield - I appreciate that.

But I am confused as to the the comment that the positive goes to the starter, I have always run the car with the positive grounded to the chassis and the negative to the starter. I didn't think that was changed till the 50's when 12 volt systems were introduced.

I need a little help with a couple of items. As I put my 42' slowly back together, In all the pictures I took when I disassembled it, I can not find pictures that show either of these items

First one is how does the heat shield mount by the carburetor?

Second question is how does the negative battery cable route from the starter to the battery, I have one cable clamp that I tagged but I have no idea where it goes or the route the cable goes.


Pictures are attached of what I have
Thanks for any insight
Jerry

Packard OEM Oil filter paint color
#9

I have an OEM oil filter I am putting on my 42 120. I came off a 41 110 deluxe 4 door that was factory ordered. When I started cleaning it up to paint it it looked like the main filter body was black. Is that the correct color?
I have seen so of the after market Fram ones painted orange, others I have seen are almost an army green.

Any one have an original with the original paint color still on it?

Thanks for the help
