Years ago,

I wrote to Champion Spark Plugs Co.,, because, you could not longer get NY-18 sparks plugs, the closest plug NY-16, have not seen them around now.

PT ,they said it would be a waste of money to use PT plugs for Packard.

Now i am looking for the current replacement spark plug. Another call to Champion.

I would use Stainless Steel freeze plugs, they are used for diesel engines. i have a set.

But looking for smaller ones for water pump and other parts..

john,

has anyone brought up, vacuum tester? open line at filter, hook up hand pump vacuum pump, and put line out in container, and pump up gas. that air bubble has to move.

don't think it would help ceramic,, but you should get air bubble out.

rik

ps if gas won't go by pump (fuel) then go below.


pss...have you tried to fill bowl before putting it together? (glass) bowl. or soak the ceramic in the bowl? with gas, then top off, and put it together.

me too, have thought of doing it, but doing the research for what will fit takes time,

For any add on, i would add a second battery., plus going the altenator route.

I also am thinking of going the electric fan route, cooling and trans.

That is how mine is, inline, can't remember if top fitting is the return line.

mine goes from trans to cooler, back to radiator cooler then back to trans.

Owen,

would that remove that powdery rust?,,with three filters it still gets in carb.

that stuff has to plug up the ceramic. i don't see how it could be removed even ultra.

Hi, john,

I have the same set up, filter tank, before, after pump. remove spring and ceramic, put bowl back on.

start engine, if you see air bubble, tap the filter, and start bleeding. Tapping your trying to move the bubble. but it should fill right up.

the ceramic, for looks, maybe remove the inside cone. so gas goes right up to carb. i like carby,,,

riki,,g'day.
