Re: No VIN, unsure of previous title

Did this ever get resolved? Is there no mechanism for re-registering a car for which there are no documents in your state? In the UK there certainly is, with support from a relevant car club. Please note that a car of that age will not have a modern style VIN. The numbers you have will be the releva...

Re: 28 Packard Dipstick?

Did you find it? Look under the mud guard at the side of the oil pan on the (for you) driver`s side. :)

Re: carbeurator problem

Following on from Tinman`s suggestion, also check that the fuel tank is well vented. If the breather has become blocked, it can cause fuel starvation under load.
Also, I would be suspicious of the ignition coil, from what you describe, unless you know it to be a good one.

Hope you get it sorted soon.

Re: 1931 Std 8 Flywheel Markings

Hi I actually do not know what the mark is for, so this is pure conjecture. But I wonder if it marks the position of the crank to help with fitting the timing chain, perhaps needed because the chain is tensioned by moving the dynamo (at least it is on my 1928 six). Judging by the relative positions ...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Fascinating work, as ever. Please keep reporting.

Is the new fascia, in your photos, painted or covered in a vinyl like material?

Re: 1928 443 Phaeton Windshield Stanchion Removal

Some heat, from a blowtorch or oxy-acetelene welding torch would free it off. The corrosion seems to have swelled the set screw so that is it extremely tight in the bracket.

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...
