thank you for the reply. I have been experiencing technical difficulty and just now got back online. I am thinking there may be a shop that makes cables.

1939 Super 8. The engine bay cover that attach to the fenders, do the louvers face fore or aft? I think forward but a friend says aft.

thanks

I have had radiator boiled cleaned and pressure tested, new water pump and engine descaled. I am running a 7 psi cap and a 160 thermostat. The car in 80 to 90 degree temp here in southern CA and I have max temp of 210F sometimes. Car has not boiled over and I have an expansion tank.

I have engine out of car now and decided to install an aux cooling fan as it would be easy to do. I do cross country tours through Nevada and Utah and would like the back up if I need it.

1939 Packard Super 8. I am going to install an electrical fan to aid in cooling. h efan I am considering requires 13 amps. I believe this may be to much for the generator. What is the typical output for thestock generator on this Packard?

Thanks

R-11 overdrive solenoid

I have a 39 Super 8 with an R-11 overdrive unit. I am in need of an activating solenoid. I got one from Max Merritt and it was the wrong one. Merritt told me they did have a solenoid for the unit.

any thoughts?

1939 Super 8 overdrive issues. I have an R-11 overdrive unit that works fine for about 20 miles or so and then it will not engage. It just goes into free wheeling. It has worked as advertised for the past 12 years until recently. I can drive the car for about 20 miles without overdrive and then pull the handle to engage and it will not lock into overdrive but, goes into free wheeling.

It seems to be heat related as when the system is warmed up well the overdrive will not engage.

Any thoughts?

Thank you
