Most platers that do bumpers can handle the dents and even cracks but the grille is pot metal that takes special care but can also be repaired. Typically your local plater, though, even if they say they can do pot metal will likely ruin the parts so best to send off to a specialist.


Good to know, thanks! Any recommendations on such specialists? I live in Utah but am not opposed to sending parts across the country. The closer the better!

Your 22 series is a late model with one piece bumpers. Have you thought of removing the paint to see what is undamaged and replatable? I have the center grill and the two long center bars, will have to dig through some boxes to see what I have of the smaller parts and take some pictures. The picture is of my station sedan with the early bumper. Dell

I have been working on stripping the paint off. And have it about halfway done but it takes a LOT of paint stripper.
I think everything should be replateable on the grille except for maybe the long center price and the identical long lower center piece. These have cracks (pictured). Might it be possible to weld these cracks on the backside of the piece then have them rechromed? Are the cracks in this place a somewhat common issue?
As for the bumper and the guards on it I am not so sure. The guards are pretty beat up with most of the chrome cracked off and dented as well as having some serious rust. As for the bumper bar it has a couple spots where the chrome has cracked off causing bad rust. It also has a couple dents. I am unsure if it is possible to get the dents pounded out before it gets rechromed but I would imagine not.
Haven’t had the chance to strip the paint off the back bumper and see what is hiding beneath the paint yet. I do know, however there are a couple spots where the chrome has come up and allowed serious rust spots. There is also a rotted out hole under the license plate light lens.

Yes, there is a distinction and it makes a big difference in knowing which when looking for parts! I've only ever had one 22nd series so not an expert but I believe there were mid-year changes in the bumpers so the photos should help.

How do I know which one I have? What is the difference I need to look for?

I have many 22 series grill parts and some bumper parts. No one piece bumpers. Can you send part numbers or pictures of what you need, also jr or senior? I also have a complete 23 series grill. Dell


Also I’m not sure if it is a junior or senior model. I didn’t think the 22nd series had that distinction. I have the 1948 Packard super eight touring sedan (2272) model 2202

Not sure if these are the right part numbers for the bumper. I am not sure without a part plate to verify.
Bumper assy-rear 412868 2.0005
Bumper assy-front 410517. 2.000
Bar-bumper Impact 412786. 2.001 front
Bar-bumper Impact 389514. 2.001 rear
Guard-rear fender 395549. 2.0056 right
Guard-rear fender 395548. 2.0056 left

Attached are the pictures of my bumpers and grill pieces I currently have.
Looking for the grill price part numbers right now.

22nd series bumpers

Hello. I am looking for new bumpers and grill pieces for my 1948 22nd series super eight. If anyone knows where I might be able to find a set it would be much appreciated. Also, are the bumpers/grill from a 23rd series car the same?
What is a good buying price for something like this?

Thank you for finding that for me HPH, I just bought that! Also thank you to DavidPackard, I will definitely go and doublecheck those things that you mentioned. I would try and make one of the tools myself however I don't have the correct resources to make one that would give me satisfactory results. I will come back with the results after I get these adjustments done.

Thanks -David

That would be great if you could check for me! The reason I am so concerned about this adjustment is I am pretty sure it is adjusted too low and causing my engine to stall out right after it starts

Cater carburetor tools/metering rod adjustment

Hello. I am trying to get my carburetor dialed in after a rebuild. (Carter WD-0 model 643SA)
There are lots of Carter specific tools listed in the manual. I have been able to substitute many for other common tools, however there are a few I still need. Specifically the metering rod gauges (tool number T109-113) Does anyone have any ideas of things I can substitute for this? Or another way to get my metering rods just right? Are there any other tools like thisI won’t be able to substitute for common tools I already have? Does anybody by chance have a set of Carter tools I can buy off of them?

Appreciate the help, -David
