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.

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.

Nice.
Heres a YT link with some more detail.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0mJ9N8tYdI&t=56s

Hope the link works.

Most of the drama usually associated with YT is absent.

Glad they saved the car.

As far as I know the FWD Packard prototype is with the Bob Bahre collection in Paris Hill, Maine.

Until 2020 the collection was opened to the public once a year. I haven't heard what any future plans are for the collection since Mr. Bahre's passing.

I'd second everything above.

If you still have those drips after a few hundred miles, you may want to address them.

I'm resisting the urge to say 'They all do that'.

If you are new to the hobby, welcome.

At risk of stating the obvious, driving our older cars is a different experience from our daily drivers, you will need to develop a sense of feel and even smell that the modern cars don't require. The fact you got under the car to get the pictures of your various seepages tells me you are on the way to the necessary sensitivity.

Enjoy.
