1951 "200 Sedan" Horn Issues!?

The car has dual horns. Sometimes the dual horns work. Most of the time only 1 horn works. Sometimes the horns do not work at all. But always a clicking sound is faintly heard in the background even when the horns are silent. I keep playing around with the horn ring to find that sweet spot, and sometimes...'Bingo"!

Suggestions on what to check?

Question:

What size oil plug washers should I buy to match the oil plug at the oil pan on a 24th Series Packard engine?

Thanks,

Rubber valve stems

1955 Clipper wheels have larger holes than modern car wheels for replacement valve stems. So the tire store says they can only supply valve stems that are normally used on heavy truck wheels and the valve stems are TOO long. The old valve stems I took off the wheels were only 1 inch and this is the profile I am desiring. WHERE CAN YOU PURCHASE THE SHORTER VALVE STEMS?

Thanks,
-Paul

I will take the advice not to get them too wide. Not over 3 inches seems to be OK for the time period after looking at old factory pictures and two brochure copies of the Constellation some people have sent me.

Thanks all!

Thanks for the sizes to go with info! And making sure not buying a size overage for the wheel well.

I have Coker Classics on my '51 Packard. There I have the "wheel shields" on the back and 2 5/8 inch whitewalls. I think the white could be wider now that they're on the car. But what width of white left the factory on the 50's model's tires?

Still wondering about the whitewall width? Was figuring 3 inch width would look best on the Constellation since both front and rear wheel wells so open on this car, no fender skirts.

THOUGHTS ??

1)What was the original size from the factory? 2)Want to convert to Radials and what size in Radial nomenclature should I buy? 3)How wide should the white walls be to match what left the factory?
