Packard instrument board servicing.

It appears from several postings on here that the instrument board was designed by Packard to be serviced while installed.

I need to install an ammeter on my 1947 clipper and am not sure how to get the new one in. I can pull the old one but putting in a new one would be very difficult as one must get under the dash with your head resting on the brake and clutch pedals and carefully put in the screws securing the ammeter to prevent cross threading them. Also, changing bulbs is not easy. Not many men my age can even do this (I have doing yoga for many years).
What is the method Packard technicians used to service the instruments?
Looking forward to responses!!

I would suggest the late 30's. The senior cars were of Rolls Royce quality and were hand assembled and customized to anything the customer wanted. The 12 cylinder cars are especially treasured these days.

Definitely try something like Seafoam or another chemical first. When I first bought my car, the lifters were noisy. I used chemicals and got it down to about 10% of what it was.

Viscosity chart was an eye opener.

BTW, I took the car out Sunday morning and at 65 MPH it was holding a steady 50 LBS of oil pressure. With the OD there was no strain or hesitation in operation of the engine.
Thank you Packard for your engineering skills!!

As to the 1006 filter, John used to own the car before I bought it. He recommissioned it. He documented it beautifully. The pictures he showed of the filter pertain to that recommissioning. Evidently a previous owner had put on the V8 oil filter because it is larger. That is why there was a 1006 filter showing in the picture. I have the original oil filter but I have not reinstalled it because to me the V8 oil filter makes a lot more sense. So, I use the 1006 on this particular engine. And I think the previous owner whoever he was for putting on the larger oil filter.
