Great resource for Novices

I stumbled across this and thought others who are novices like myself might find it handy if they didn't know about it. It's related to a 38 Six but should be helpful for others trying to do some maintenance/cleanup on a number of years/models.

Opened it up, checked the float valve (good), took the fuel line off, took the fuel line connector off to check that "valve", and made a minor twist to the idle screw and that either did it or the gremlin left the car. Now I can focus on maintenance instead of life support.

Thanks for the tips. I'll try and do some deeper dives based on your suggestions-- starting with the float valve.

Fuel/Carburetor Issue Help

Forgive my ignorance, still learning, so this may be a simple one for most of you pros.

What are some adjustments I can make or things to look through to deal with what I assume is too much fuel pushing through?

I wasn't having any issues, then after some battery issues, and then chasing the wrong issue (gasket), I am getting the following now (I thought it was flooding at one point).

Thanks.

Fluid and maintenance recommendations
#5

I know I might find a range of opinions but as I get acquainted with my 39 Six looking for advice from veterans regarding fluids/lubricants (brands, etc.) and anything else you use to keep your car in good shape from engine to chrome to paint to dash. I don't have a clear sense of the last "changes/flushing of fluids" so looking to work my way through the usual suspects (oil, coolant...).

My car also has original paint and the type of wear you might expect (scratches on the headlight from opening the bonnet, crackling at the rear windows) so tips to not inadvertently damage it more is also appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Still a "noob" but maybe I'll make it to Hershey or some other shows in the future. I have seen these that are aged as an option (pair). The car's paint has age so super "clean" may look out of place.

License Plates
#7

I recently purchased a '39 Packard and I am looking for a 1939 Georgia license plate. (I've been looking locally at antique stores and close but no cigar so far.) I've also seen only a few plates online (ebay and tagdrstore). I am guessing there may be some other places I haven't stumbled upon so any direction is appreciated.

Also, curious to get some opinions as well. The car itself is a survivor (i.e. original paint with noticeable age) and so the plate option begs the question (1) old and showing age or (2) restored like new? (I have my leaning but also interesting to hear other's thoughts on the matter.)

Thanks.

I have to admit this '36 is amazing. I feel like I need to start a personal fundraiser or get rid of my new car and get this instead. Love the double suicide doors and color.

Would love a nice restored car but not in the budget (bought a new car earlier in the year). I have seen a few from some reputable companies and private sellers but short of a donation campaign or lottery ticket not in the cards.

Negotiating for a survivor '39 now and not too far apart on list and my offer so I guess we will see.

Thanks for offering to help check for scammers.

If I get it I am sure I will be picking brains a lot here.

I have been looking for a 37 Packard, preferably 120 sedan. I've come across a number of likely scam cars so if anyone knows of reputable sites they'd recommend or know someone selling please share. Thanks.
