I personally think that any nos part will be sooner or later faulty . The simply age of the materials used inside (rubber) will be prematurely dry rotten . My fix for the same issue was just bump up the static timing at the distributor a few degrees . Mine runs fine and no issues . Only it don't like to start right off when the engine is hot . But I'm good with it like that . Don't forget to plug the vacuum line too !!

Far as crankcase oil , I'm loyal to Shell Rotella . I put 15-40 in my 49' 288 .10w 30 goes in everything else that I use that has a spark plug .

HH56 ,
Only one of the tires says Koker tire , so I'm assuming the other 3 have some age .... it don't bother me they look and drive fine . Not a daily driver here !!!
Thanks for the concern though !

Speedometer / Cable

Just was thinking here , has anyone ever thought about lubrication on the speedometer cable or the actual gauge ? I have in the past used like chain/cable lube on the cable but I had thought about a little squirt of spray inside the hub of the speedometer only because the way it works . I've noticed mine is typically 5-8 mph off . Maybe a little lube could correct that ?

Cut front springs

I replaced the front coils on my '49 ..... just saying I really hate when someone ruins things . I was really just upset someone did this . But looks like the set of springs that was sacrificed was not Packard springs . Here's what I took out compared to put back . The service manual on replacing them by unbolting the lower from the frame was really easy and flawless !!! Didn't even take the front tires off . So to anyone doing this job that's the only way to go ...
