1950 shift linkages

These get stuck. Used to be only every once and a while, and a little WD40 on the joints would help. Easy to get to, if it happened while driving, relatively easy to pull over and use a crowbar to separate. But getting worse. What's involved? Would love any ideas ranging from simpler solutions to to...

Re: 1950 Packard emergency brake cable breakage

Yes, Thanks Ernie, great minds think alike - that's exactly where I went and what I found. My only problem is that I don't have anyone to put it in. I'm an older guy, woulda done it myself 10 years ago, but don't have a lift and can't crawl under. My regular guy (sorta) is laid out and can't do it. ...

Re: 1950 Packard emergency brake cable breakage

Dave, I certainly don't disagree with you, I'd rather do that, too. I couldn't find the exact parts on Kanter or OPG, but will try the others. But thinking more, I know basic 1/4" wire rope is readily available that is just like the broken piece, and the shielded cable is perfectly good, and the con...

1950 Packard emergency brake cable breakage

My emergency brake cable (actually, I believe the more correct term would be a 4-strand wire rope) broke just about 2 inches above where it comes out of the shielded cable housing (I believe that it is called BX cable) under the dash. I have thought about trying to splice this wire rope rather than ...

Re: 1950 interior window trim

Dave and Howard, Thanks. I'll try using the cord and see how it goes before any surgery. Later.

1950 interior window trim

Hi Dave, This is the same guy removing seats. Got 'em all out! Thanks for your help. Shoulda figured it out on my own, but your and others' advice helped a lot. Now for the next semi-dumb question. I took out all 4 interior window trims a good while ago. I recall that after removing the 8 screws, I ...

Re: 1950 Seat removal

Thanks, Dave. I didn't know that the push in and up lift procedure would be for the cushions only - that's all I really need. I was trying it for the framework. I'll also try the same with the back cushion only. I'm sure at that point the backrest removals will be fairly obvious.

1950 Seat removal

Would love to get any advice on removing both front and rear seats. I know there are 2 or 4 "tongues" that fits into slots at the front floor. I suppose pushing in should slide them out, but I've tried this with all the strength I can muster, with no luck. Any advice?

Re: Oil filter on 1950 Deluxe

Thanks Dave. I called Fram and they said all 1950 Packards had an oil filter. I tried to tell them it was likely an option on some, but nevertheless, I looked again for the canister. Is this it?
