To clear or not to clear is the question.
In your opinion what is the best way to keep the lines from tarnishing?

Build it the way the factory lineman did it no better, no worse.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

I agree with Curt and I personally have regretted everything I have ever cleared under a hood. Periodically I clean everything brass up with Never Dull www.nevrdull.com

That is a good looking engine.

I assume the lower hose clamp on the upper radiator hose loose - the cast iron neck I do not think is that long to seal .....

You may want to consider new starter, generator, and distributor tags - Not sure about 31, but Curt has them for 34-36 (maybe he has sourced for his own 32)

The Bijur tank lid emblem should also be available via fitting Packards.

Thanks John for the reply.
The lower clamp has not been tighten because when I put the rediator shell on it will need to be adjusted to get the correct gap on the hood.
How do you attach the new emblems with the old ones riveted?

Mike Samson has the Bijur tag. Search eBay for Delco tag, there are plenty. I have a stamping fixture and the stamps with the old style font. Use split rivets for installing them. I have been a 34-36 guy for the past 20+ years, but recently brought home a 31 coupe for a different kind of challenge.
