Thank-you for all the replies, I will be focusing on looking for another 1934-1937 Packard. The present owner will not budge on the price of 20K, and besides the engine work that it will require in addition to paint interior and chrome. I will look around what else might come for sale. I also found 2 shops that would grind and polish the crank if I needed that service, around 800.00. That is also being rebalanced. I have the ability myself to tear it down and re-assemble, but if the owner won't reduce the price, there is probably a better venture out there.
Thank-you all again for your comments and help, and yes, I live in Michigan.

Looking at buying a 35 Packard that will need the engine gone through, owner says it has a rap noise in it and needs to be gone through with a rebuild. We can all imagine anything from a wrist pin noise to a bearing failure. My question is, any members that rebuild short blocks, or recommendations to machine shops that can handle the crankshaft grinding-if required, and the piston rod modification to handle bearing inserts. Also, recommendations for the rod bearing manufactures.
I'm getting to old to do this kind of work, but have other projects, but want to save this Packard from someone inserting a newer engine replacement. Plus, I like the old gal to drive around town. The engine should be a 320,hopefully attached pictures will insert. I like the 1935-1937 era and still would persue a super eight to tweleve in those years, especially the limos,
Thank-you, Joe
