Re: 1938 1600 Six - Hesitates when accelerating

I think that your carburetor may have an accelerator pump at the bottom of the float bowl. It is worth checking that pump (a small piston connected to the throttle linkage) is working well and jetting fuel into the choke tube when you press the throttle. Also, make sure that the fuel tank, and the f...

Re: 1929 Packard 626

What works for the Model A will work for the Packard too. A good idea to change the oil and check the coolant though. Does it still have the autovac to pull the petrol through? If so, that will need a careful clean and service. But you can run the engine just by filling the autovac with petrol and t...

Re: 1929 Packard 626

Hello and welcome to the Packard fold!! That is a lovely looking old motor. Please do keep it in unrestored condition, as much as is practical. It is a real piece of history. If the engine was rebuilt, and has been stored well it should be fine. You might need some new tyres though ! and perhaps a w...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Hi Joe

Fascinating work as always. I love the look of the new gauges! It will be interesting to see how the A/C fitment works. Not that that is a high priority here. A good heater and demister might be more relevant!

I will be following your progress with great interest, please keep us posted.

Re: 1949 Packard charging problems

Not sure that charging is your problem. A fully charged battery will run the car all day (possibly not if you are using the headlamps). From what you describe, I would be suspicious of the coil causing it to cut out and fail to restart. Once it has cut out, will the engine crank? or does it show the...

Re: 1937 headlights opening

Hi Olivier

That screw needs to come out. Can you insert a lever (small screwdriver) between the lens holder and the headlamp body and try to prise the pieces apart whilst undoing the screw? That may require three hands!
