WTB actuator arm for shutters (from thermostat) on 1939 Super 8

I am looking for the actuator arm that moves the grill shutters. It connects the thermostat to the radiator shutter linkage. The Thermostat on my 1703 '39 Packard Super 8 is in the radiator top tank.

Failing one for sale I would like to see photos of the actuator with some dimensions.

Thanks,
Rick

Some Pines Winterfront parts are reproduced by Classic & Exotic, you'd have to check their web catalog to see just which ones they offer. No doubt by '39 the linkage differs but the actuating lever for 1933-34 is shown below and the link from there to the shutters is just a threaded rod. Hope this is helpful.

Not that it shows a lot but did you look at the illustration in the 1937/1938 shop manual?

I might be able to find one for you. But I can't look until after the end of the month.

West Peterson,

That would be much appreciated if you have one you can sell to me.
Please let me know if you do find one.
Thank you,

Didn't realize it at the time but if the Pines Winterfront pivot arm I showed in post #2 above works for you, searching for sometime else I find that I have an extra. Let me know if you still need it.

Hello I still am in need of the actuator for the thermostat. I think that one will work but I need to check the measurements and see if it works for my application.
What is the price for the part?
Is there a way to private message me?

Thanks,
Rick
