Hello Everyone,

Just sharing/tooting my own horn, that I successfully registered and passed inspection in Massachusetts this week! Now I have officially and legally resurrected a 49 Deluxe Sedan that was sitting since 1979! Not perfect, but runs and drives strong! Thanks all for the help, Iím still going to need it Iím sure! Iíve driven the car for two days now and so many people have stopped me to ask or share stories. Definitely stood out in the parking lot at work.

Lookout for me on the Metro-Boston Area roads!

55 grill assembly, youíll have to say what model itís from. Hardware included, looks to be in nice shape.

Pretty interesting bike, would you consider this a ďPackard Vehicle?Ē

49 Deluxe Cowl/Firewall Weatherstrip

Hello!

Yesterday I repainted the cowl/top of the firewall after a very messy process of removing a piece of rubber that was in a partial molasses/partial rock phase that I can only assume was an effort to reform back into a living organism. Needless to say it had to be stopped.

With that done, is there supposed to be a strip there? Iím looking at pictures Iíve seen it both with and without. If itís supposed to be there, how long?

Thank you Howard! I think youíre right about the issue there, thereís a bad wire somewhere in those connections but at this point if I start pulling them apart Iím likely looking at a bigger project than I can handle this week. I highly suspect the wires going into the carb starter switch, the switch itself is clean and works well, but those wires are less than ideal. Either way the starter cranks well and car restarts often enough, but after a couple back to back hot restarts (like when you accidentally pull up to the wrong pump, then get anxious and stall ;) the spark isnít strong enough without the jump wire.

Iíll plan to pickup a toggle from advance, I saw they have ones up to 30amps, and it sounds like those will be more than enough!

Hello Everyone,

I have an issue in my stock ignition/starter switch wiring causing hot-restart difficulties. Itís not terribly severe, and I need to get the car inspected and mobile as soon as possible. So for right now, rather than hunting it down and replacing which risks a bigger overall rewiring project, I want to install a backup wire with a toggle switch from the hot battery (stock 6v negative terminal) straight to the corresponding coil input. I have appropriate 10g wire, but do I need a specific spec switch and a fuse for this? It will be needed just to start momentarily, once running the backup wire is not needed to keep going so Iíd basically flip it on, start the car, flip it right off again.

Thanks,

Hello,

Quick question, do the doors have drains anywhere to let water out of it gets trapped in the door? I didnít see any but want to make sure their clean if they exist. I have a 49 Deluxe 22nd sedan.

Thanks!

A little far for the Boston area! But in St. Augustine FL thereís a 1940 6Cyl engine/tranny:

Letís hope this isnít because they put a 350 in the car they pictured!

Ok, I think I was looking to confirm that the tumbler can be removed and I erred by hand, and there wasnít some reason why the procedures needed to be used for alignment of the shaft or anything. Most threads are about more complicated situations (door permanently locked, broken latches, etc). I didnít want to try pushing the lock out by hand and end up creating a problem.

49 22nd Deluxe Sedan Locks

Hello,

I have a question about the door locks on my Deluxe. Both are broken, keys turn but when I pulled off the drivers door card to fix the window I found the square rod sitting on the bottom of the door. I read through the manual and the threads it didnít specifically see what I was wondering, and I donít want to brake anything because the appearance of locks is better than nothing!

My question is, using the needle technique or similar, can I (or a locksmith)remove just the broken tumbler and then slot in a working one (without removing the whole latch assembly)? If that is the case, has anyone identified specifically a tool or needle that fits/works?

Attached is the picture of the broken rod.
