Thanks for the response Convert.
You don't happen to know of a plating facility that could handle a job of that sort ? Thanks, Packard 385

Plating 15th series top bows .

Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Dave Munger
Does anyone out there know how the top bows
were assembled on 1937 120 ?

I want to have them rechromed, they need to be disassembled, I see no way without cutting at various points. Are the joint points possibly a spline press fit or just a few thousandths tight fit using those parts that appear to be a mushroom rivet or ? I WANT TO KEEP THESE BOWS AS FACTORY.

Any help information, drawings, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for any help. Packard 385

The front and rear hold down clips were reproduced by San Diego region Of Packards International, they are shown on the San Diego P.I. website. Not one of PMCCs'better ideas.
Good Luck. Packard 385

22-23rd series water pump ?
#4
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Dave Munger
Some where I've heard a 1948-49 water pump will work on a
282cid ? I've had two changes of 282" pumps, leak packing problems or rear oiler leaks water.
Thought if 22-23 series 288" pumps would work, that may solve both leak problems.
Thanks in advance before I have to take it off again, it's real close to radiator & I just find it much more difficult than when I was younger.

Dave Munger
Does anyone have information or pictures how the
tire compartment was finished when the 120 left
the factory ? I imagine the 2-4 coupe would have
been the same. Thanks for any help / info.

Lonny,

I know of a number of Packard owners that have had " Arias"
make their pistons, all very satisfactory !

Arias Pistons
13420 S. Normandie Ave
Gardena, Ca. 90249 Tel. 310 532-9737

I don't believe they make the Strut type, but send them your specifications.

Hi cli55er,
The picture with the manifold heat riser weight.
The small L with petcock, originally a fuel drain to help prevent flooding, the L stays then( index# 5.0934 in Packard parts list 1935-1941).

Looks like a real nice 138CD.

" Teaching someone to drive a 1955 Patrician".
Craig, absolutely correct " A Packard is not a mere car
its' an AUTOMOBILE. "

JD in KC & BDC, I commend You both for Your understanding
of " PACKARD " and the people involved with them.
