Re: ‘28-29 Phaeton

Re: Oil Pump Spring

Yep, ran into that on my dad’s car just a couple days ago. It has a ‘28 pan with the pan clean out plate so I figured it was a ‘28 thing. What year is the car you saw it on?

Re: what does "insurance" on shipping actually cover?

In short, Brent nailed it, it will really come down to how the item was packaged.
