I see you’re in Grants Pass! I was just there last week and even spotted a 1953 Cavalier or Patrician in a driveway near where we were staying. That wouldn’t be yours, would it? It was two tone green as I recall.

I never saw one worn like that! It might be better and easier all around to replace the bell housing with one that doesn’t have the wear.

Thanks for that pictorial answer John! Beautiful cars! I bet you were sorry to see them go, even if it was 'time'. Chris.

John, the short answer is 'no' it is not. I DID go through that suggested long and convoluted thread on the subject and it sounds like the problem is both common and has myriad root causes. It is not something that happens with huge frequency on my car, but is very annoying and usually most inopportune when it does. I do find that if I don't PUSH the lever when going from 1st to 2nd, then it is less likely to freeze up. I also noticed that 'Ross' seemed to be the 'house expert' on the subject and I was going to ask him for some adjustment tutorage. He says in a post to someone else with the same problem: 'lengthen the turnbuckle on the 1-R link between the column and the idler on the side of the engine slightly. This will insure the transmission and the column reach their crossover at the same time.' I am not sure I fully understand this and I don't want to open a can of worms and maybe even make things worse!! So, to answer your question, I am just 'managing' the problem and trying to 'avoid' it.

I'll have to take a look at the ignition switch, I think I installed the coil correct but worth a double check.

Yes, replacing valve stem seals in sutuis best left to someone with a bit of experience.

My mention of Packard bicycle ornaments drew some interest verbally, if not here in writing. Thus I thought those following this thread might like to see the attached catalogue full page of Packard-style bicycle ornaments from 1954. This aftermarket car ornament maker did a big biz in automotive ornaments, but also sold a good number of bicycle ornaments.

Interesting that they devoted a full page just to Packard-style bicycle ornaments and note reference to "same designs as famous hood ornaments" (and you know what this means)...! Packard Motor Car Company apparently was not bothered at all by the bicycle ornaments. So much so that another bicycle ornament maker actually came right out in their 1950s catalogue and actually called their bicycle ornament a "Cormorant"...! The ornament maker for the catalogue I show here refers to their version of Packard-style ornaments as "Buglers" and "Flamingoes." Of course the company offered dozens of other designs for bicycle ornaments, but only the Packard style had their own full page in the catalogue. And you won't find this stuff on a DIY web site.

Ohh... and in case you have not noticed, they also somehow anticipated Packard's use of a "V" symbol. This company offered one for bicycles with the Packard-style bird ornaments... except it came in gold-tone instead of chrome with the gold circle. Note the "V" symbol on the catalogue page and mounted to the handlebars of the pictured bicycle!

So... for your enjoyment. And for those of you who have occasionally posted questions about "Packard" ornaments that look too small or slightly different, now you know...

Oh and Jack - I'd love to really go ahead and fix everything while I'm in there, I'm just not sure my capabilities are up to the challenge. I'm learning as I go.

As you can see in the photo, mine is well worn. A local welding shop has agreed to weld over the worn spot and let me grind to shape. I'm worried that the peg may loosen in the bell housing. Any input? Thanks, Bob

I can't imagine an in-car ice maker being very efficient even today. So, one can only imagine that such technology in 1941 was probably so overly-designed and finicky in function, that it just wasn't worth the money or effort to get it to work properly.

Only in the movies could you imagine Gary Grant and Myrna Loy merrily enjoying iced-cocktails while riding in the backseat of a 1941 Packard.

as always
