Default Re: 1934 v8 grill emblem

Based on the casting configuration on the back of both the 40-8221 base and the 40-8217-B V-8 ornament, they appear to be originals or at least conform to the several originals that I've had over the years. One piece is missing from your photo, Jan, and that is the 40-8219-B clamp which spans both threaded studs and fits up against the back of the grille bars. If you have an illustrated chassis parts catalogue, this clamp is shown along with 40-8217 and 40-8221. It would seem that the large flat washers in your photos were used for want of that clamp.
