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...

Good Morning...Is your condenser old or new. If old, they can make you say bad words and think all sorts of things are wrong...Ernie in Arizona ;)

Re: Packard 1930 - identification

Good afternoon...On the left side of the main page...if you scroll down...you will see a little red tool box and 'Tech Tips'. In this area you will find an extensive list of possible 'Overheating Issues'. I found it very helpful when sorting out our 1949 Deluxe 'Miss Princess'...now the old girl run...

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...

Re: 1929 Packard 626

Good Morning...I agree with Adam. I'm also one of those folk who have a Packard and a Model A Ford! It is kind of fun to have cars from both ends of the spectrum! As you evaluate your Packard, you will find that there are parts available for it. Start with Kanter-800-526-1096, Max Merritt-800-472-25...

Re: 2365 club sedan

Good Morning...Tinmann knows more than most of us about the 22/23 series Packards I do believe! He has had his down to the last nut and bolt, so he is a great coach when the rest of us are stumpted! Enjoy this site and Packardinfo as well. Ernie in Arizona ;)
