Re: Starter Wanted 138083 for 1931 840

Lou, I think folks will be more likely to identify what you want by using the part manufacturer's name and model number. The OEM starter motor on the 840 was an Owen-Dyneto DN-860.

Here's an illustration of the linkage Ross has described for you, as well as a recommendation for adjustment, this from a 1957 Studebaker-Packard service letter, clarifying somewhat their recommendation given in earlier service documents.

Most all the significant ornaments (Packard and other makes), have been available as reproductions almost continuously by a variety of vendors since the early 1960s and possibly earlier until just recently. Most were produced by the lost wax casting process, either in brass or stainless. The last very large scale maker of the ornaments and a broad range of other cast vintage car items, American Arrow Corp., has apparently succombed to a family squabble following the passing of the founder, Don Sommer. I've heard his son Dan is attempting to continue the business and there is quite some discussion on this over on the AACA forums.

Don's stainless repro were of superb quality with some items approaching $800 or thereabouts. The last repro donut pusher I purchased came from Bill Hirsch, brass cast and finished in Spain. I doubt he has any inventory remaining but perhaps worth a call. And definitely worth a call to Dan Sommer if you're in the market for one.

OEM size for 2206/2306 was 8.20 x 15. Be forewarned, clearance in the rear wheel wells is quite limited.

Those clearances are for the "120" engine, not the Super Eight. The 1937 Super Eight shop manual calls for 0.004" intake and 0.006" exhaust. And note the decimal point!

The primary reason the senior engine has the tighter clearances is that it uses roller cam followers whereas the 120 engine uses flat tappets.

I'm wondering where you got your data from, you want 0.004" and 0.006" hot clearances for intake and exhaust, not 0.06" and 0.08".

Re: Double Rocker strips 1949 Custom Eights

Rscott, you're confusing 22nd series 1949 cars with 23rd series 1949 cars. Only the 22nd series Custom 8, whether 1948 or 1949, had the double lower body trim. In the 22nd series only the Custom 8 used the egg-crate grill; in the 23rd series, whether 1949 or 1950, it was also used on the Super Deluxe and neither used the double lower body trim.

It is an incomplete description to identify a Packard as a 1949 without additionally adding whether it's a 22nd or 23rd series as both series produced cars to be titled as 1949 models.

It can be confusing, might I suggest you but a copy of Bob Neal's book on the 1948-1950 Packards?

Randy Berger had his factory Motor Wheel wires redone by Dayton Wheel. That was some years ago. 15" repros of factory 51-56 wires also being offered by Dwight Heinmuller, see his description and ad in the current Packard Club newsletters. I don't know what his source is but from the shipping costs quoted, I suspect it is on the West Coast.

Performance of the system is highly dependent on how much vacuum is available. How much vacuum is being supplied to your wiper motor and is the booster pump functioning?

If it was an engine I cared about, I wouldn't be using a wood chisel.
