Nice catch! Yes that is the slip in there and it is legible and I was able to decipher the code with help, attached a picture. I haven’t checked for the glove box one yet, maybe I’ll do that tomorrow/Wednesday when I try starting (if I can get the right size fuel pump inlet hose, the one I was sent is small on male side big on female side).

Did anyone go? My car isn’t running yet... but I’d go next year if they’ll take a daily driver ;)

A new issue! What is the deal with the gas tank sending units. I've seen a lot of discussion and workarounds, but I hate doing gas tank sending units, and want to put it in and be done with it. I'll test the gauge before I take the tank out, but so far I have never had a gauge or wire problem- its always the sending unit. I only want to do this once. Any advice would be appreciated!


Don't know if you sorted the sending unit or not yet. I pulled the tank off my 49 and the sender off. It was pretty crusty and the arm was pretty well stuck in place from sitting for years, brass float was toast with the whole bottom half gone. I cleaned the whole thing up, and pulled it apart (see pictures). It actually looked good inside, which was what I had read about these senders in general on ford group sites (they look like hell outside but might stay sealed where it counts). So... if it still operates with the right signal output range, you can very cheaply buy a new brass float from Dennis Carpenter here (http://dennis-carpenter.com/fuel-tank-float/p/68-9275-f/) which was almost exact to the one on there. The stuck arm, after trying several cleaners, came almost immediately loose and developed free travel with a shot of brake parts cleaner. Then it's just a gasket and maybe some new mounting screws and you're set. Of course if it's not outputting the right signal then it might need to go out unless you're good with electrical engineering.

Once I add it to the registry can I update the info as I move along? I'm looking to uncover more info about the interior codes etc... Also I anticipate any day now my repair and restoration skills will bring this from non-running fair condition all the way up to full concourse winner ;)

Great info! Thanks a ton for the help, I'll have to check out the condition of my rubber if it exists and then check out those sources for replacement.

Hello All,

Thought I'd do a quick intro and post some pictures of my Packard. I'm the new owner of a black 49 Deluxe 8, 2262-9, with 52,000 miles. From what I know of it, it was from the New Bedford, MA area and seemed to belong to a Packard collector involved in owners clubs and events. Sometime more recently the owner’s estate went to his son, then was sold off a few years ago to the guy I bought it from. He also claimed there were some real top-dollar Packard models in the collection when they went to buy this car. My goal is to get it basically running to confirm no major low end or catastrophic engine failure occurs, then make it roadworthy by refocusing on brakes and a typical safe rolling/regular use project process. Last time it ran was 1980, but the engine rotates freely and has been soaking in MMO. Yesterday I dropped the pan and everything looks pretty good, now I just have to get it clean, back on, and re-install the gas tank. With the other projects I've done so far, should be ready for a first crank soon! Got to beat the approaching winter!

It's been in dry storage most of the car’s life and has no structural rust at all from what I’ve found, which was the factor that led me to buying since everything else in my bargain price range seemed to have the New England Salt-belt open floor and trunk pan feature/fully ventilated rocker panels. Also, another big plus for me was that it lacks the typical NE bargain-find feature where its cave-aged in a garage with grass-fed, free-range mice who are specifically trained to access different interior and wiring components. Random facts include having a Marvel Inverse Oiler #200625 installed 6/22/1951 and a penciled notation in the owner’s manual saying car was “overhauled” at 38,579 in May of 1952 (which I assume is when the engine components happened). Now that it’s been raining I can also confirm that it doesn’t have internal leaks!

I love the car and can’t wait to get mine to a point where I can drive it!

~Evan

Thanks for the quick reply! Very interesting... I'll make sure that's sealed up then once I get the battery in.

Thanks again!

Hello!

New to the forums and first time Packard owner (49 Deluxe 8/2262-9).

I've been searching for the answer to what might be a basic question and decided to ask because I wasn't finding it. Why is there an access panel behind the battery to the wheel well? Follow up: is there supposed to be something that covers/seals this?

Thank you!
