Try Penn-Dutch Restoration Services located on 100 Commerce Dr., Glen Rock, PA. 17327. They reproduce the entire top bows for 1937 Junior Packards, not sure if they make any parts for 1940?

NOS Packard Clipper Passenger Side Rear Door
#2

I have a Packard Clipper NOS passenger side rear door. I'm not exactly sure of the years it fits but I think it looks like 1941 thru 1947? The part number on the Packard tag and stenciled on the door is 376546. The door does have a slight dent on the top/bottom corner which looks like it may have been dropped but would be simple and easy to repair. Because of the size of the door I'm not able to ship but could be picked up in Southampton Ma. 01073 or I would deliver for free to orange field in 2021 Hershey PA. AACA meet. Can't beat the price $100, I can e-mail more photo's but can't seen to compress the file to attach here.

Re: 1937 "120" Pressure Plate/Clutch Installation ?

Thanks, I did what you suggested and it worked. I used a 3/8 nut under each of the finger levers and also drilled a hole on a nut flat and inserted a zip tie. After mounting the pressure plate and clutch it was very easy to recover the nuts with the zip tie tails as they had droped inside the pressure plate. If anyone else runs into this problem also use 1 zip tie to hold the clutch to the pressure plate when installing.

1937 "120" Pressure Plate/Clutch Installation ?
#4
Quite a regular

Recently installed the bell housing, flywheel, and clutch fork on my 37 "120"engine. Just purchased a pressure plate and clutch from Max Merritt which looks great, however I'm not able to mount the pressure plate/clutch to the flywheel as there is not enough room to slide by the clutch fork. My shop manual mentions inserting a wedge tool ST-879 between the three throw out release lever fingers. So since I don't have this wedge tool I'm assuming the pressure plate needs to be "released" and spacers inserted between each of the three fingers and the pressure plate casing? I'm also assuming this will need to be done in a press which I don't have. If I"m correct in this, will/should it should allow me enough room to slide the pressure plate and clutch into position? It must also be quite difficult to remove the 3 spacers if this is the proper method? I know there has to be a lot of experts out there in Packard world who have experienced this! Also, if I'm correct on this, any idea what size spacers to use? Thanks

1937 "120" Flywheel Bolt Torque

David Patla
Would anyone know the torque value for the flywheel bolts to crankshaft on a 1937 "120"? The bolt size is 7/16-20 and have the grade "B2" stamped on them. I've looked in the shop manual with no luck. I've also looked at torque tables on an internet search but believe it or not I've seen different values?

Hello Flackmaster, I would be interested in the 41 conv. coupe. Also are any of the 53-56 Cadillac's convertibles? I'm 160 miles away tel 413-687-5595, I would have to hire someone to transport a car but I'm not far away. Thanks
Dave
