40 180, getting ready to replace all the dash plastic have ?

I inherited my GrandFathers 40 180 which he kept in great shape and used and enjoyed a lot.
The original dash plastic is still in the car but cracked real bad, I bought all new plastic from the one vendor who use to make it before he sold his business.
What I would like if anyone has any are some pictures of the dash taken apart that shows all the metal.

Do a search for stromberg EE3 rebuild kits, I found a place online that had the kits and the power valves, last year the power valve was 125 the needle and seat assembly was 150 and the kit itself was 125.
If I can find the receipt I will post the info here.

Re: Edmunds 2x2 intake fits 288/327 Packard

Im not sure if it will fit the 356 as those were all 9 main bearing engines I belive, if im wrong it should fit as long as its a 5 main engine.
I have a edelbrock 2x2 on a 48 Lincoln V12 and it has made a huge difference, all plugs burn about even now and the power has increased enough I need better brakes to stop it.
But I did open the intake and exaust runners when I rebuilt it and used larger pipe for the single exhaust and a little cam regrind. Still gets 18-20 mpg with OD in and 70 mph with the top down. If it would fit my 282 I would use it on my 41 business coupe but its to nice to cut up.

Edmunds 2x2 intake fits 288/327 Packard

I have a very nice Edmunds 2x2 intake for a 288/327 Packard.
4 bolt bases so you can use your original Packard carbs. I have one lightly used NOS carb to go with it that needs the accelerator pump replaced. PM me if your interested. 500 + shipping for intake and carb. the carb shown in the pic is a rochester and if you want it I will throw it in for free.

I have used 57 chevy wiper motors on all the 53s I use to own and they work great, bolt right up with ease. only way to go in my opinion. Im going to use a 41 wiper motor in my 36 since I have a spare with the stantions, yes they were electric.

Re: Pics of an open hood on a 39?

My wife didnt save all my pics of the 39 with the hood open so I will have to go take some more. Let me know exactly what you need or want pics of and from what angle and I will get them for you this coming week.
I can tell you if your assembling it, if the engine is in and fan on, install the radiator and cradle in first then the cowl to radiator braces next the radiator shell then the fenders, at this point use a tape to make sure everything is squared up and then take a measurement of the hood through the center and along both top sides and make sure you have 1/2 to 3/4 inch extra over the length of the hood for body gaps, tape off all the painted parts where the panels fit together to avoid chips and peel it off as you bolt it together. I had the most trouble with my hood lining up right, just couldnt get the gaps perfect. Leave eveything slightly loose so you can raise or lower the fenders and rad shell to get your gaps right on. help to have a couple extra people, wish I had help. once you have your gaps set tighten it up.
If you need pics sooner I can send you pics of my 36 or 41 since they are kept at my house and used for daily drivers, they are basicly the same just different shapes but bolt together the same way.

I have pics of a 39 V12 will that do? as soon as I figure out how to register all my cars I will swamp you with pics.
Anyone here in NorCal going to the Galt old car festival?
I will be driving the 39 12 there and back, about 130 miles and 25 gallons of gas.

My Grandfather had a 35 super 8 roadster with the same handle it was for a manual overdrive I belive it was a hono OD, His was right hand drive, brought it back from Jamacia and restored it back in the early 60s. he got caught up in Oregon with some other Packard people doing 110mph, Judge threw it out because he said those old cars couldnt go that fast, He still has the ticket but not the car. at 91 he is still doing good though.
