You probably also should be aware that if you are using a DVM that that some of them tend to have some pretty questionable readings around our old cars.
Probably the higher quality DVMs are less prone to the problem.
Even an inexpensive Radio Shack VOM will give you better results. I use a Simpson 260 just because I'm comfortable with it.
YMMV
Good luck.

Dave Flack,
Yes I would think your head must be spinning.
I can only guess the owner of the collection may have passed or developed more serious heath problems.
I viewed the collection a couple years ago when I bought a S-8 engine from the owner thanks to your contact information.
I wish him and you all the best of luck with the disposal.

Re: What modell used this coil base?

Bob,
I THINK that is a coil base for a '39 Super Eight, on of the many one year only parts on that particular engine.
It locates the coil on the LH side of the head next to the distributor. It also provides a place for the 'theft resistant' armored wire from the switch to terminate.
Seems to a less than ideal place for a ignition coil, but it does keep the lead to the distributor short.
Good luck.

You've probably seen this excellent video that Ross produced...
But just in case:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1Zc3aW18Z4

You may have to have the linings cut down by a shop with tooling to fit the shoes to the drum. Its a good idea on any brake job to arc the shoes to fit the drums.
Good luck.

You'll get all the advise and suggestions you may want on your oil question.

You may want to locate a Motor's Manual and a Packard shop manual for the 1937 model year, they are extremely helpful and can save you a lot of work and grief.

Have fun and good luck.

These people have an excellent reputation, haven't used them myself, but worth a call.
I think they can fabricate tanks along with cores.
Good luck.

Hi-
The website changes allowed me to update the picture of my car in the owner registry.
Thanks.
However several lines of 'trash' have appeared in the description and history.

Re: 1937-38 Super-8 Stromberg EE23 automatic choke linkage.

Bill, if the choke thermostat on your S-8 is is located in the same place on your exhaust manifold, I can remove my (39 Super Eight) choke actuating link and measure/ photograph it.

It should present no problem to manufacture one.

I don't know what the clips that retain the thermostat-to-choke link rod are called but I've seen them on other carb and choke linkages on other cars besides prewar Packards.

BillinNC, If you want to PM your e-mail address to me I can get pictures of the linkage and installation tomorrow.

I have been unable to post any pics on this site for quite a while, but I can e-mail them.

The link to straight-eight.com shows the pump check valve for the EE23 I have been looking for. I just ordered it from them, thanks Fish'n Jim.
