Rather than judging based on looking at magazine ads, I'd recommend looking at factory and period photographs. You may reach the same conclusion but the photos are more representative than advertisements.

Did the width and angle match the specs I gave earlier?

Don, the reason I asked the question was that it wasn't clear to me from the original question if the engine continued to run or was capable of running after the oil pressure went to zero.

Can we assume the oil pump gears are turning when you crank the engine?

Kevin, I'm sorry if things are still quiet in your area, the summer and fall schedule of club events, tours and smaller shows are beginning to fill up rapidly here in the NJ/NY/PA area. And quite a few of the major national events are now on schedule for later this year.

Hi Randy, congratulations on your upcoming purchase of a 640 Packard, a great motor car. You'll find plenty of willing folks here with advice when you need it.

I'm not aware of any centralized collection of original delivery information; the little I know of comes from just a handful of dealers and covers relatively few years, and none as far back as 1929. That data, perhaps including only 1000 or less vehicle s, is in the hands of a couple of individual collectors who have shared it with me; give me the theft-proof number and vehicle number and I'll check but again, nothing that far back as I recall.

Your best sources for tracking prior history would be prior owners of the car, and club roster keepers.

I loaned a sample to Dan Sommer (ex-American Arrow) a couple of years ago to make the metal tire cover strap-on type. I've misplaced his phone# but someone should come along with it.

The only source that I'm aware of for a good replica of the 32-34 Packard hinge pin mirror was Jay Fisher who is no longer with us and I'm not aware of anyone buying his tooling. Too bad, his products were expensive but superb quality. I've seen some generic ones mounted - they look kind of chintzy but at least will give you the function while you continue to look for the real thing.

Use a hydraulic jack placed under the frame rather than under the suspension should allow you to lift and clear the fender issue. Perhaps a spacer (piece of 4x4?) to get a little extra lift.
