1941 110 - Instrument Switch Function

1941 Packard 110 Touring Sedan RHD (see project blog for full details) As my return to original 6-volt electrics from a 12-volt conversion continues, today I was working on the dash circuitry. My car has all-new switches, gauges, and wiring to original spec, so I was hoping the rebuild would be rel...

WANTED - Rear Ashtray for 1941 110 Touring Sedan

The rear ashtray in my 1941 110 Touring Sedan Deluxe has been hacked about and a fake front and handle screwed on (see picture). I'm trying to locate a good used original example, or even photos of one; what I need most as in the picture is the 'pullout' ashtray itself complete with cover and handle...

1941 Packard 110 Battery Cranking Amperage

I'm in the process of converting my car from 12v back to original 6-volt. One issue I have is the motor cranks very slowly using the 6 volt battery. I'm checking the connections, earths etc. as I understand how muchthe 6v system relies on good connections, but my other thought is the battery itself ...

Re: UK - Based 1941 110 Touring Sedan Deluxe RHD

Glove Box and Clock Wiring As part of the renovation I was very lucky to find a genuine new old stock original clock, which after restoration and painting/woodgraining of the dash was duly installed. Similarly, the new remade wiring harness provided a good wiring feed to the glovebox area, includin...

Re: UK - Based 1941 110 Touring Sedan Deluxe RHD

12 to 6-volt conversion With humble apologies for the delay in my updating the blog (whilst I bought and restored a 1930's house), those of you who have been following my blog may remember my 'export' (to South Africa) RHD model during its lifetime had lots of original parts replaced with non-stand...

1941 Swan-Neck Mirror - Fitting Query

Hi Everyone, As my 110 Touring Sedan restoration continues, I was delighted to obtain a pair of reproduction 'Swan Neck' outside rear-view accessory mirrors from Max Merritt. They are handed, and mount in place of the small piece of stainless trim on the front door hinge pillar. The new mirrors each...

Re: 1941 110 Fan Belt removal

Good Advice; thanks Dave, what you describe makes complete sense - I'll try and source a new motor mount. The Pulley is stamped thankfully, so replacement of the belt with something suitable should be relatively easy.

Best Regards,

H.
