Re: Front Leaf Springs

Good Morning...We purchased new rear springs from Eaton at Dave's suggestion and have been very happy with them...Miss Prudence, a 1949 Deluxe, now sits level and rides much nicer...Eaton's were very nice to work with. Ernie in Arizona ;)

Re: Packard Info, Inquiry, and Advice - Syracuse NY

Good morning...We have a 1949 Deluxe with the 288 cubic inch straight eight, three speed transmission, and an R-11 Overdrive. In the eight years we have had her, she has been a delight.

Re: 48 Deluxe touring transmission

Good morning...You might place a call to Kanter and Max Merritt. They will be a good start. Also David Moe at Packard Seattle and Tucson Packard and Packards Southwest. Somewhere in that mix you should be able to locate a transmission or a lead on one or a rebuilder. ;) Others will have other possib...

Re: New Packard Owner-Needs Help with Parts

Just one more thought. If you have some power at the coil...do you have anything at the points? If not, pull the distributor and go through it carefully. ;) ;) We played with one recently that had a small broken wire inside it! Ernie in Arizona

Re: New Packard Owner-Needs Help with Parts

Good afternoon...If you are receiving some power at the coil, it might be hooked up backward...but I would think that you have a compromised bit of wire along the route...Can you assign a student to wiggle and check, clean and tighten all along the way? Ernie in Arizona

Re: New Packard Owner-Needs Help with Parts

Good Morning...With these old girls there is often a bad piece of wire with the covering warn/rotted off that causes a short. The best approach is to start with a wiring diagram off of this site or packardinfo and then start with the battery and trace the power along the route until you find where i...
