Re: Custom Fitted luggage for a 1934 Packard Series 1100

Thanks for the info. I found someone to restore the luggage in Houston. A young guy in Houston who owns Bellaire Shoe Hospital restores old luggage as a hobby.

Re: 1934 Packard Series 1100, Straight 8

Dave Czirr, I cleaned the terminals and cables on the battery. I also disconnected the cable from the starter, cleaned up the connections and reconnected. No luck.

Gentlemen, I installed a new battery in my 1934 Packard Series 1100 mid December, 2021. One cell in the old battery had failed. The car started easily and ran well. I went out of town for 4 weeks and the car sat in my garage in Houston, Texas. I switched the disconnect lever below the drivers seat t...

Re: Battery/starter issue with 1934 Packard Series 1100

Thanks for the response. You nailed it first try. One of the cells bubbled when hitting the starter button. Dropped a new battery in and she starts fine.
Thanks for the help.
