I think these three sheet metal panels belong under the engine on my 1933 8-105 Salon. I have never been able to understand what they are, where they go and whether or not they belong on an 8-105


Any help would be appreciated

    Hi Donald,

    Those 3 pans mount around the base of the engine on each side and under the front. They reduce road splash & debris coming up onto the engine. It's very nice that you have these as they were often removed for maintenance and discarded!

    Thanks! I suppose that the engine has to be lifted up to install?

    I'm not 100% sure about 8 cylinder engines but I would think they would be removable on their own. They often had to be removed to perform maintenance on the engine. I'd be very surprised if you had to dismantle anything to remove/install them. Hopefully someone else with first hand experience with the 8 cylinder can confirm.

    Very unlikely that would be the case. Not that way with L-29 , Auburn speedster, or Marmon 16.

    These panels go around the engine. There is one of the rectangle one that goes on the two sides that has a indent in it. It is for the steering column. That one goes on the drivers side. The other square one goes on the passenger side. These two the engine does not need to be removed. However, most of the cars that we have worked on the are completely original have a fabric strip that is riveted one the panel and is sandwiched between the block and oil pan. The other one that you have goes under the pulley for the fan. The engine has to be tilted up to get that one in because the engine sits on that panel and the bolt goes through one of the holes. This is a nightmare to put on with the engine still somewhat in.
