OK, I have done hours of internet searches looking for the
correct battery. Yes I know I could use something else,but
sometimes you just have to go for it..
For those that don't know, the BCI groups batteries in
10's so a group 50, would go up to 59, a group 70 would go to 79
Group 60 is the same way..
Out of all the Brands I searched, and I'm not saying I searched every
brand, but those I did like Excide, Interstate, DieHard, Delco etc
only Motorcraft and Duracell make a battery that would fit the battery
tray almost to original.
the 56 (The 400 Hunderd) battery tray is 13 x 7" nominal
Motorcraft has a battery BXT64 12.28 x 6.23 x 8.83" and

Duracell is a SLI64 11.75 x 6.25 x 8.875"

I have yet to find a store that carries either on, and I live in
SoCal...
Thanks to all of you who had input

I can not get the Registration page to render any input boxes. It just
sits there with a blank page and stares at me....

thanks everyone, it is a 56 The Four hundred


Sorry I input 46, but meant 56... Damn I should know what
Packard I have after 35 years.

Now... someone said the battery for a 56 Senior would be a
group 60... and also said it was no longer made in "mass" production.
Delco makes ones $270.00
I looked at a v65 nope to long and wide

My battery tray is 13 x 6.5"

And since I am not going to spend $270.00 on a battery I need to
find one that is like 11.5 x 6.5"

Again sorry for the confusion of year, as you can see I made the
appropriate change..
Thanks again

On another subject does anyone know if the end caps for the
king pins are available, they are not reusable...

I should know this, I've had my Packard for 35 years, but the answer
is not registering.. What size Battery does the 46 Seniors have
24, 27, etc.. Seems like I'm replacing batteries in all my car's right now
and I know the one in the Packard is way out of date...

Hi Craig

Wow!!, what a great job, and the color...

BTW, how is your brake system holding up? Don't you have the
single diaphragm booster?
I've been thinking of going to a hydro boost... after I get the
disc brakes installed.

Yep that is the article... I thought there was some write up
about this install.. I keep thinking that there was a mention
of a "sleeve" needed for the king pin.
Do you have any more info?
Is Paul still active on here?

Thanks Craig

I was going nuts for a day or so trying to remember..
I saw another site but he was using the Mopar\Chevy etc
machine shop setup... around 2002...

I have the spindles, from a Ford F150
and today I started to disasemble a spare set of control arms
I have, clean them put new bushing in...
and get that project on it's way....

Thanks again

I've lost of misplaced the info on installing for F100\150 spindles
on the 55\56 Packard

Can anyone give me the web link to info

If my memory serves me the Man who did this lived in Las Vegas.

I was lucky to find the spindle and rotor's for a good price,
but since then I've had way to many projects to get done...
