Thanks for the boltdepot resource, not sure how I didnít find that just on google or maybe I didnít realize they sell small quantities if I did see them come up in a search. Anyway, I canít find the special sized heads, though I will contact boltdepot to see if they can get them, so Iím going to most likely get regular hex heads.

Is 3/4 length the right choice? 25/32 is the head size I thought, didnít see a length anywhere but Iíd imagine too long and it wonít hold the skirt on tight.

Skirt Bolts 2262

Hello All,

After many searches I was able to determine that my 49 Deluxe 2262 takes this size bolt for the fender skirts:
Packard part number 399938 fits 1948-53 All models. This is a 5/16-24 X 25/32" bolt.

Thanks to motor city packards for that information on a previous thread. Unfortunately their project to sell these seems over. I canít seem to find anywhere to get this size, and generally all the stores around me donít seem to carry many fine threaded grade 8 or stainless bolts anyway.

Would any 5/16-24 x 3/4 grade 8 hex head work if I just order a box off amazon? Boxes of 50 of these seem to be pretty reasonable at around $12 for 50. I understand the original size was different to accommodate using the Packard emergency tools to remove the skirts, but thatís not a concern of mine as I keep a well stocked toolkit in the trunk at all times.

Thank you!

That is very cool, though I just went with this Bluetooth Speaker which charges with solar panels, has a charging bank via usb for phones, aux input, and 60hrs of play time. The only thing it doesn't have is AM/FM, which I don't really listen to anyway with streaming music. The flashlight feature also comes in handy in the car at night or rooting around in the trunk.

2262-9 Door Locks

Hello,

Just double checking before I pull the trigger on some replacement door locks for my deluxe 8 (2262-9). Does this description sound right:
The shafts are 5.0" long. The lock front face is 15/16" OD, and the lock barrel is 7/8" OD.

I donít remember what I did with the broken shaft and the doors are back together... just donít want to waste money on the wrong ones!

Thank you!

A siphon is good thinking, luckily my drain plug is in good shape and works well. I continued driving the car to use up more gas (and because I canít resist) and Iíll probably just buy more gas cans from the store. Hopefully the next radiator shop gets the job right!

Well... thanks for the info! Looks like I'll have to find a better way to drain the tank. At least this helps me in my calculations so I don't run out of gas out on the streets! Right now the broom handle method is my gauge, though it's also an estimation largely because I'm not sure how inches of gas on the handle equates to gallons in the tank! It's a fun dynamic keeping it topped up so I don't run out but also with the goal of running it down to empty it.

Hello,

For frustrating reasons I have to drain and drop the fuel tank again on my 49 Deluxe 22nd sedan (288). What makes it more complicated is that the gas gauge isnít working, something I hope to address while the tank is off. Does anyone happen to know generally about how many gallons per minute at idle the 288 will go through? I have a 5 gallon emergency tank but Iíd like to go through as much as possible to avoid unnecessary gas transfers in the driveway.

Thanks!

"5882 Carburetor" reportedly from a 28/29 in "good" condition:

1940 120 partially disassembled. Definitely ambitious project:

"Mid 50s" with ultramatic. Rough. Price is right?

"Barn Find" 2277 48 Limo, not running, looks complete and largely un-altered but stagnant. Not sure if the price includes random robin's egg blue fender in the back seat:
