Listen up I had problems with the BTV for years and you know what I discovered, ITS NOT THE UNIT. Its the unqualified idiots that are rebuilding these units! I had Ross Miller of the Speedwell garage in Parkton Md rebuild my unit and you know what PROBLEM SOLVED and the car now stops on a dime. He also discovered three things wrong with the rebuild job done by White Post restoration yeah they snagged me with that "lifetime warranty" bs and like an idiot I fell for it. I had two return the unit twice because of problems with it. The second time I asked them well what was wrong with the BTV they couldn't tell me! If they don't know what was wrong how can they fix it! Remember these are your brakes that is a safety issue and Packards are typically very heavy cars; don't take a chance of ending up in an accident or CAUSING an accident.

I was just wondering since this is the time of year when most of our cars sit for the winter(although today in Philly it's approaching 70 degrees Fahrenheit!) what would be a good electric fuel pump for my car-a 1940 Packard 180.

Just a question for future reference is it possible to install overdrive on a non-overdrive 1940 transmission?

Does anyone have a diagram showing the proper routing for all the wires on a 1940 180 deluxe heater/defroster?

So it was produced early in the year but didn't sell until July? Interesting. Then again they only made 1900 for 1940 so it could of been produced closer to the date it was sold. Also weren't the senior Packard only produced after an order was received for one?

I think the vehicle identification number from the data plate is 1342-4301/or 4501. I will go to the garage and get a better picture tomorrow. The insurance card on this car lists the VIN as 13422501 I am not sure which is right.

The car was sold in Boston Mass on 7/16/40. I will stop by the garage where I store it and get the Vin.
