I have a '37 and a '40, both with sixes; both have glass bowl fuel pumps. I haven't pulled them both to compare, but they look pretty similar to each other as I recall.

Off topic, we named our '37 115C "Amelia", as she was manufactured about the time A. Earhart disappeared.

Re: Bolt spacing , width and back space - 39 Packard six

I'll try to take a look at my cars in the next day or two. I have a '37 115c and a '40 110.

My '40 110 has 6x16 wheels, with 5 on 4.5's; not sure what the backspacing is though. Ford passenger car wheels bolted right up. I'm pretty sure the 120's were different.

Edit: I checked a spare wheel tonight from my '40 110. 16", seems to have 5 on 4.25" spacing. Backspacing is 4 1/4:. I did however, bolt up a 60's Ford 4 on 4.5" wheel to the car last summer. Hmmm.

I also checked a couple of wheels from a '47 Clipper that were given to me when I bought an engine: 15", 5 on 4.75" with 3.75" backspacing.

120 fuel tank in a 115C?

Does anyone know if the 120 tank will fit in a 115C? I know the parts numbers are different as the 115C tank is 17 gallons and the 120 is 20....just curious.

Re: 1939 six....master cylinder replacement and other dumb questions

Wheel cylinders can likely be bought new from NAPA. You'll need to do a little sleuthing on parts numbers, but I replaced all the cylinders on my '37 115C and my '40 110 from NAPA for under $20 each. The master cylinders were rebuilt with kits, under $15.

I don't think it would be that tough to switch to a dual cylinder; I may do it some day on mine. You'd need to fab up appropriate brackets, but I don't think it's that big a deal.

Re: Rough idle problems - solved

A few valves were just a scosh out of tolerance; ran her hot, re-adjusted, smooth idle. Not quite smooth enough to balance a nickel but substantially better than it was a couple of weeks ago. Engine vacuum holding rock steady at 19psig.

Next up, fixing a tiny little fuel leak from a fuel line fitting.

RE: the vacuum advance, ordered one off of ebay, should be here next week.
