Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Plugging away with the re-wiring. Not a great deal of urgency since the city, county and state are basically shut down for the control of the virus. Too bad because it is prefect weather for a cruise and car show! I'm working on the turn signals now. All the connectors have been added to the turn si...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Working on the wiring with the dash installed and tilted back for access. Taking it one circuit at a time working from right to left. The AC unit is completely finished but not tested yet. The courtesy lights are wired and tested. Lights all go on when either door is opened or when the light switch ...

Re: carbeurator problem

Make sure your fuel lines are clear from the tank to the engine, particularly any rubber lines.

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Finally got all the AC and heater hoses connected to the evaporator unit for the final time. Very tight, had to use a bunch of 45 degree fittings. Had to make a new hose for one of the heater hoses. When my original attempt was installed, it wound up with a kink. Hoses just miss the hood release. AC...

Re: Testing an R11 Overdrive Relay

When my relay failed, I replaced it first with a 6V cube relay that was mentioned. Worked OK. Note that if this relay is used a 30A fuse needs to be added to the circuit. Mine was on my aftermarket fuse panel. Replacement Relay_1.jpg I ultimately replaced the cube relay with an R11 OD relay from Vin...

Re: Testing an R11 Overdrive Relay

Are you testing the relay or the solenoid? I had trouble with my R11 relay. I could bench test the relay to see that it would engage and it worked but when installed it would not activate the solenoid. Turned out the the connections on either side of the glass fuse were corroded, had enough juice to...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Finished wiring the the dash. Most of the wires are plug-ended for easier installation. Several will be attached with connectors once the dash is installed in the car. Need to determine the wire length for them, don't want to cut too. Got the headlight switch, lighter and the power to the gauges and...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

Have the dash about 90% finished and ready to put back in the car. I'm waiting for a small terminal block to connect the power and lights for the gauges. It's starting to look somewhat like a Packard, at least from the front. The gauges are in, the switches are connected and the radio grille with wi...

Re: 1949 Packard 8 Club Sedan

I'm working on the under dash wiring now. It's kind of a mess right now. When the car was originally wired, I merged the fuse panel with the original dash wiring from the Packard diagrams. With the new gauges, switches and the AC, most of that had to be scrapped. My intention is for the dash to be "...
