p/s pump

The pump on our '55 Clipper seems to be leaking around the cap as the top always is oily to the point that it blows back on the engine on long trips. At first I thought it was the hoses so I changed them and the pressure side was leaking at the fitting so that is fixed. Still had a wet top so I chan...

Re: 1940 heater

Funny, I bought our 1940 160 in the same condition. No heater switch and the wires are not visable. I am going to look for the wire and connect it to the ignition switch I bought on ebay and say a prayer that it will work. I will put a fuse between the switch and the heater just in case!

Re: pre war fuel pump heat sheild

Thanks, I am going to add one to our 1803 Club Sedan. I guess Packard decided they needed one are they would not have added it in '41. Tommy

pre war fuel pump heat sheild

I am still learning things about our 1940 160 in comparison to our '47 and 48 Packards.(only had it a couple of years) Had a fuel problem today that felt like vaper lock, I noticed it does not have a heat sheild on the fuel pump like our 47 356 or our 48 327. Did someone along the line leave it off ...

Re: Beware of "Jack Lawson" in the UK!

I have received at least 5 notes from different British sounding names in the U.K. There laws must be lax or something for this kind of crime as I suspect these are not British natioanals? The first 3 or 4 came regarding my ad on this site for a 1940 deck lid. The sender said he had one for a couple...

Re: 356 fan belt

Thanks John and Al. I went ahead and ordered one from John Ulrich this morning. He said he had sold 300 of them without complaints so I figured they must fit! I will keep that number though as I also have a 1940 160 - it might come in handy. Tommy Baccaro

356 fan belt

Does anyone have a Gates or other number for the fan belt for a '47 Custom Super 8. The Gates number for the smaller 8 is tr32513 but the correct one for the 356 is more than 2 " longer. ( the larger number is probably pretty close to this one) The smaller can be used but it is a bugger to put on - ...

Re: rear shocks for 1940 160

Thanks David. I will do that. I never know who I will find on the counter so if I have a number it avoids that irratating question of "who made Packard" Tommy

'55 power steering hoses

Not having any luck getting new hoses for my '55 Clipper power steering. Several said they have the hose but not the fittings on either end of the high pressure side. The lower pressure side just had clamps. Anyone know where I can get ready to bolt on hoses? Thanks, Tommy
