Re: 1942 One Eighty Front Coil Springs

The 1935-41 and 1942 parts lists both show spring #354691 for 160 and 180 5 passenger sedans, load 1990 and rate 100
Bear in mind that the data book was printed before production and the parts lists show what was available to dealers from the factory for replacement items, not necessarily what was originally installed.
I suspect that the 1941 160 springs should work just fine for your 1942 180

There should be 2 numbers stamped in a recessed band in the shaft near the drive end of the gear, one for the Packard part number and one for the Stewart Warner number.
This will give you a positive identification.

Unless I missed something, the service manual doesn't actually say how to remove the overdrive tail shaft. It shows the housing being taken off, then the shaft is somehow off too! What holds it there? Is it just the ring gear and is there a trick for getting it loose?


There is nothing holding it although yours may be gummed up a bit. It should just pull off towards the rear.
Some of the free wheel cam rollers will fall out when the rear mainsheet and ring gear assembly is removed.
You will then be able to access the freewheel cam and planetary gears for removal using your new snap ring tool.

While the tank was sitting with the etching liquid in it, I started work on the transmission as I need to take off the R11 unit from a transmission with stripped gears and put it onto one that’s good. The Henneys had special transmissions with hardened gears and this isn’t one of them but it will do.

After taking out the bolts from the overdrive, I managed to get it to move about .200” but it does not seem to want to go farther and I don’t want to break anything by forcing it. Did I miss something? I will check the manual, of course, but with my very limited rural internet connection, I thought I would also ask.

Edit: It appears that I still need to take off the access cover on top, then remove a snap ring. If I understood correctly, that should let it come apart.


Easiest is to drop the transmission countershaft so that the overdrive unit with attached mainsheet can be removed.
It may take some jockeying of the low & reverse sliding gear and tilting of the mainsheet to get it to pass through the opening in the rear of the transmission case.

There are 4 bulbs to illuminate the instrument cluster, one on each side of the speedometer and one on each side of the clock
Another 2 bulbs on each side of the speedometer dial for oil and generator lights plus 2 more on top of the cluster in the centre, one for high beam and one for signal light indicator

The rear bumper and guards look to be correct but the tail lights and rear chrome grille is from a 22nd Series Custom 8. Not correct but it doesn't hurt the appearance of the rear.

The one for sale by Highlander160 is not an R6 but is an R9A for Senior cars from 1940 to 1947

There is an insert in the middle that unscrews.You will need a precision screwdriver to remove it.
