Re: 53 400 Lifter Noise

Dave and JD. Confusing to say the least. My 21st series 356 has a restriction in the center pipe of the filter housing. It also has the short looped tubing between the fitting that screws into the oil gallery in the block to the lifter supply gallery. I don't know if one of the outlets in the fittin...

Re: 53 400 Lifter Noise

Dave, this illustration is like gold in explaining the installation and routing of pressure and return oil lines. We have learned through previous discussions that at least one model of a filter has the pressure feed from the bottom and the return from the topside of the filter. Installations vary d...

Re: copy of order or build sheet?

I found part of the build sheet for my 1955 Clipper taped to the floor on the front center hump under the carpet.

Re: 53 400 Lifter Noise

philjoan, there was an earlier comment in a reply about the return line from the oil filter providing the oil to the hydraulic lifters. This does not sound correct to me as I would think the lifters need full flow and pressure oiling not reduced flow that would result from the oil going through the ...

Re: Just startin'

The main mechanical difference between the 1938 and 1939 Sixes (and all other Packards too) is the change from a floor shifted transmission to a steering column shifting linkage. 1938 service/shop/owner manuals will give you about the same information as the 1939 manuals, except for the all importan...

Re: Replacement Carpeting

Steve, you should be able to do the job yourself if you have the original carpet to use as a pattern; otherwise, it is probably best left to a good auto trim shop to do the re-carpeting. Also, if the carpeting is bound on the edges, it would be better left to a professional to do. I re-carpeted my 5...

Re: 1938 120 VIDEO

I believe the show you are referring to was one that Mark Lambert did for the DIY network several years ago. As I recall it was a 1938 Eight Coupe he restored over several program segments. The wet sanding was a demonstration of how he brought back the finish of the Packard, a polishing and waxing o...
