Re: Year model - packard

I just asked a local friend who is a noted Packard restorer and expert. His answer, "1939 V12 Brunn Landaulet." He also reports, "very expensive, with production around 20."

Re: So much for Irish Spring and Dryer Sheets.....

Back on Page 1, Richard Crow suggests the "walk the plank" mouse trap. I agree 100%. Baited with a little peanut butter, it is very effective. Two tips: If your garage gets below freezing, add...

Re: flathead mechanic

If Charlie rebuilt the carb, it's 100% not the carb. He's the best.

Re: need to sell

I am an avid "BaT" follower and it is a great venue for some cars. I suspect it probably would not be for this one for a couple reasons. First, you have to "apply" to have your car listed on BaT...

Re: ‘39 Merc All Terrain Vehicle???

Somehow, I'm reminded of the classic scene from "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" featuring Phil Silvers and a 1948 Ford Convertible. :-) See attached at 0:28 and again around 1:21. ...

Re: help for a friend

A 1982 Durango isn’t a Dodge. It’s a Ford. Sort of the successor to the Ranchero, based on a Fairmont platform. I’ll admit to having to Google it, because I don’t remember them at all.

Edit: ...

Re: Lowering rear on 32 roadster

Re: Rebuilding my steering box

Regarding the alternative approach suggested, I have a spare completely rebuilt 41-48 car box. (Purchased it before I realized the shaft was too short for my Mercury, so just rebuilt mine instead) ...

Re: 40 Heater Motor

As of a year ago, a gentleman by the name of Rick Bocchi rebuilds them. He goes by "flathead48" on the forum. I have been meaning to have him do mine, but I just haven't got around to...

Re: Fuel boiling at fuel pump

Bummer. I guess that's one advantage of N IL. (Another being a few degrees cooler) ;-)

Re: Fuel boiling at fuel pump

Good to hear these reports, because I think I'm going to pull the trigger on some Coker radials in the next few weeks.

Re: 35 Ford steering box

Mudflap,

If you have any interest in using a 41-48 box, I have one that is freshly rebuilt, never used. I bought it from someone not realizing Mercurys have a longer shaft. Ended up just having...

Re: What needs to be done to use a floor starter button

Exactly. My '25 Dodge has a foot starter and I've never had a problem. Of course I also make it a practice not to stall it at stop signs pointed uphill, but that's another issue. It also makes a...

Re: Ultrasound cleaners

I bought one from HF specifically for cleaning out a Vespa carb. It worked perfectly.

Just make sure the reservoir is big enough for whatever carb you intend to put in it.
