Re: Bulbs power

According to the service counselor specs 37 Packards used 2330L bulbs and according to this site https://www.replacementlightbulbs.com/lamp2330.html each filament draws 26 watts or 4.23 amps. Don't have a 37 manual but the 38 book says the parking light is a 55 which draws .4 amps and if 37 has the ...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Have you decided if there is room to relocate the filter or are you going to eliminate it. In addition to the photo posted on the pkrdinfo site I have photos of some other Sanden compressors on brackets located over the manifold. A couple of them use a flat plate similar to what you have started and...

Re: Brake Master Cylinder Question

I believe what is being referred to is the type of system. According to Motors Manual, there appear to be 5 basic hydraulic systems used over the years from the 30-50s with the Bendix and Lockheed being by far the most common and used by most mfgs. Even those systems have more than one implementatio...

Re: series 23 shift linkage

The 48-54 parts manual, plates 133, 134, and 135 shows all the pieces of linkage. Most joints consist of a combination of bushings & flat and spring washers held on by cotter keys. To get a description and number they are usually listed toward the bottom of the group number printed section where you...

Re: Newbie with a 1950!

On starters with a regular Bendix all you need to do is spin the motor. If the motor is spinning then the problem is possibly the Bendix or maybe broken teeth on the pinion or flywheel or maybe a wrong starter for the engine that might not have the nose extend deep enough for the pinion to mesh with...

Re: 1948 Standard 8 Overdrive Issue.

You can test the actuating relay out of the car by applying power from one side of a battery to terminal 1 and the other side to 5 but usually it is just as easy and somewhat more convenient to see all functionality by leaving it connected in the car. The ground out relay coil is in series with the ...

Re: Newbie with a 1950!

6v ignition systems are somewhat critical as far a needing everything to be in good condition. Assuming the fuel and carb situation is functioning properly a lot of cranking without a start can foul the plugs so any spark could be dispersing over a path of moisture instead of being concentrated enou...

Re: Air Conditioning

Adding a second groove to the fan pulley to drive the compressor is what Packard did in 1940 when they introduced their AC. Do you have any photos of your installation or specific details of the components used and any other changes made that you could share. It might help someone else who is wantin...
