1934 Packard Limousine rear axle

My 1934 limousine has a very noisy rear axle. I understand it needs a new crown wheel and pinion. I could get them made here in the UK but wondered if they are available in the US? Also I’ve read somewhere it may be a good time to alter the drive ratio so the engine revs less. The engine would certainly take it as it will accelerate from walking speed up a hill in top gear. I think it would benefit as travelling over 50 mph sounds let’s say exciting!

Hello Ian,
Pretty sure this guy, Ed, maufactures Hi-Speed Ring and Pinions for your 1934. You need to contact him and see if he can help you out.

He advertises in the Cormorant News Bulletin and you can reach him at www.edlservicellc.com

Hope he can help you out.

Best to you, --Roger--

When you say it needs to be replaced, I assume then it has been removed for inspection. If the backlash is wrong that will make noise as will incorrect pinion depth. A qualified person will do a contact pattern test as well.

If the new parts are not installed correctly, you will still get lots of noise.

Modern high speed ring and pinion sets available from Old Retired Fart Manufacturing, 1135 Badder Drive, Troy MI 48083. I believe this is a sort of continuation of the old Phil Bray enterprise.

Correct site is www.edlservicesllc.com

Another vote for these guys. If I ever tear into my '29's rear axle, I will definitely be giving them a call. They did a ring & pinion set for a man not far away with a '30 Cadillac, dropped it down to a 3.55 gear I believe, and what a difference! That thing flies now! Much less notable than putting an aftermarket overdrive on our old cars. If I had that gearing in my car, it would be wonderful!

Give these guys a call, they make some excellent gears!

Thanks for all your help and sorry for not replying sooner. I registered the car on the vehicle registry. It’s an eight. I had someone more knowledgeable than I look at the axle and he was sure that the worn gears are causing the noise. When I got the car it soon became apparent there was no oil in the axle. I didn’t drive it far without oil but maybe the previous owner did. I’ll try contacting the suggested engineers tomorrow.
Once again thanks very much.

Thanks for all your help. I've been in touch with EDL Services who have been very helpful. They now just need to know if the car engine is either super 8, 384ci or standard 8, 320ci. Engine serial number is 378118. Would this be standard 8?
I can't wait to get this sorted: Days are getting longer now and spring is on the way!
