Nice...They are a quality restoration and parts business...I have been in their shop in Escondido, California a couple of times...Chris should be happy with their offereings...Ernie in Arizona


Hi Ernie,
The supplier in Escondido is Restoration Supply Company and is a great source for horseless carriage items plus some newer stuff.
Restoration Spcialties is in Windber Pennsylvania and is a good source for weatherstrip, many different types of clips, hardware and fasteners.
Easy to confuse the two due to the similarity in names.

There was also a factory service suggestion for ensuring that the wheel clips would hold the hubcaps securely.

Re: Cleaning Whitewall Tires

I use Spray Nine cleaner, applied to a dry tire, scrubbed with a fairly stiff brush and rinsed off before it has a chance to dry. A second light application to the wet tire will finish the job, followed by a thorough rinse.
This works well on yellowed and dirty whitewalls but not sure what affect it will have on the brown stains.

The 1939 Eight owners manual on this site has some information on the operation of the overdrive and indicates that there is a lockout cable.

The Service Manual specifies 110 to 125 ft-lb torque for the bushing nut in the idler lever (Specifications Section).
Nothing is mentioned about the position of the idler arm with respect to the mounting bracket but I believe that it makes sense to bottom out the bracket in the idler lever nut and then just back it off until the bracket reaches the most obvious mounting position against the frame rail with the steering centered. That should allow enough leeway for full travel of the steering linkage.

Wheel #2 is not Packard. Looks like a Buick rim.
