1933 EE-2 Light Eight Carb finishes
#1
Home away from home

Dear All,

I just acquired an EE-2 Packard carburetor that I am planning on installing on my 32 Light Eight (I have the manifolds). This was a factory approved upgrade in 1933. Unfortunately, I cannot find any images that indicate what this carb should look like as far as finishes and plating. Is there anyone out there with some clues?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

No documentation but I would think the same finish as the EE-22 thru 1934, castings painted gloss black and all linkages, levers, screws, etc. in bright (nickel?) plating.

I jumped the gun and am agreeing with Barry, the black on the die cast is glossy, but not full gloss so a semi-gloss seems the better description. And yes, crinkle black on the base casting.

Here is what I have heard from a person I trust:

Black body. Cadmium plate on all hardware and linkages. No plate on idle jet screws. Nickle plate on pipe fittings.
Since it's a 1932, you could go nickel instead of cadmium I suppose.
Maybe you can see remnants of nickle or cad under a screw head or some such. Could be either, really.

No polish on any linkages. Industrial finish only.


I'll report what I find once I get the carb.
