Bearing Strip
#1
Not too shy to talk

I'm restoring my front grille, shutter assembly. With that, I acquired some of the drawing of several parts. I'm looking for any information for the material used for the bearing strip that holds the shutter blades. The part number #326557. The material on the drawing states "super lexide", 1/8" x 5/16" strips.

One of several bearing assemblies you will find in the parts book is #326567 (lower). For my car, there are two long strips on each side of the bottom and a long and a short on each side on the top. I have included a CAD drawing of the lower part. The brown material inside the other retainer is what I'm looking for.

Exhaust Manifold Heat Control Valve Shaft Weight

I need the weight on the control shaft, and can't find one, its Packard part # 315063, for a '38 8 cyl model 1601. I recently acquired the drawing from the Packard club and have generated a 3D model. I would like to verify if the model is correct (does it look correct). Can someone take a picture of the weight? I realize the original is a casted part but I'm looking into having one made out of steel.

I am also wondering if others need the weight, if so let me know. If more people would like one, we can get the price of a single part down

Crap! I'll look into acquiring the document and verify, but it looks like I need repaint them. It took me a long time to decide on the paint, is there any suggestions on what paint to use? I would guess its a Lacquer.

OK, thanks for the information.

Below are some pictures of the restore process I thought people would want to see.

flackmaster, would you still have stainless runningboard mouldings for the '38? I have a model 1601 with a 127" WB, would these fit this car?

Please let me know if you have them.

Not sure if their different, but I'm looking for a '38 reflector with the headlight and parking light sockets. Would also need the wire clips that hold the headlight lens in the chrome ring. PM me with price if you have one

Under Hood Color

I recently restored the horns on my '38 1601 Packard. I have searched for pictures and found some but all seemed to be different finishes, semi-gloss, gloss black, even chrome. I realize you can restore things the way you want, but what was the original finish? What is the correct finish?

I have seen some old posts on web sites mention Packard International (PI). They have (had) a document (don't know if it still exists) that they were working on to document the color and finish of all the components under the hood of all years and models of Packard's. I searched their website and could not find it. Does anyone know how to purchase the document? Does this site have an equivalent document?

I ended up painting them semi-gloss from information I've seen from a respondent that claimed to have a copy of the document stating that the finish of the horns were semi-gloss.

Any information on this issue would be appreciated.

Would you have the weight that's attached to the shaft on the manifold side for a 1938, 120 8 cyl? Don't know if it's the same as the 37?

Re: 1938 Packard rear license plate light

I have another question on this assembly. When mounted on the trunk, the bracket that hold the license plate is at the wrong angle. It needs to be pushed back a bit so it is vertical. Looking at the parts book, there seems to be another metal piece that adjust for this that I do not have. My question is, is there another "wedge" piece (look by nut that attaches the bracket) that is suspose to be there? Can someone take a picture? I include the picture from the parts book.
