Re: Brake Master Cylinder Question

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...

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 ;)

Re: 2365 club sedan

Good Evening...You might check with NAPA for an upper radiator hose...or the Packard suppliers, Kanter, listed above or Max Merritt. Once you have the old girl on the road...you will enjoy her. We have a 1949 four door with 51,XXX miles on it and she is great fun to go to breakfast, lunch, hardware ...

Re: 1938 1600 Six - Hesitates when accelerating

Good Morning...Is it possible that the two fuel filters that you replaced are now somewhat plugged and slowing down the fuel delivery? With some filters it can be difficult to tell then they require changing or cleaning. Ernie in Arizona ;)

Re: 1940 windshield divider Chrome trim

Good afternoon...You might try David Moe at the Packard Seattle Company 425-293-7709
...or perhaps the Flackmaster, David Flack. At least a couple of places you can call and ask. Ernie in Arizona ;)

Re: Newbie with a 1950!

Good Morning...Under these conditions it can sometimes help to take a second six volt battery, that is charged up, and use a set of jumper cables up to the battery in the car. The added 'juice' will often help the old girl start...sort of like s shot of whiskey when those of us north of 70 don't wan...

Re: Comfortable cruising speed for a '29 Packard

Good Morning...I go back and forth between a 49 Packard 288 and a 31 Ford 200.5. When I need to go on the freeway with the Packard, I go at 55 mph and almost always start at sun-up so that I arrive before the traffic sets in and usually I go home on surface streets or back roads. Lots of back roads ...

Re: Front end Question

Good Morning...Your Packard will have more value if you rebuild the stock front end parts than if you change to a more modern front end. The driving experience will not be what it should be...Ernie in Arizona ;)
