I'm getting ready to start assembling the front sheetmetal on my Packard. There are an awful lot of parts involved, not including the fenders themselves. I'm going to try putting it together a piece at a time with the fenders last rather than all at once like at the factory. Probably test fit it to make sure I know where everything goes.

Finished the dash wiring using a 9-circuit fuse panel modified to work with the 6 volt car. All the circuits are now individually fused rather than spliced to a circuit breaker. Since all the wire was replaced anyway, I think this is a better arrangement. Under hood wiring will be completed once the fenders are back on.

I was obviously trying read too much into it's possible function. Snapped into place. Thanks for the quick reply!

When working on a long-term project, in my case 4 years, it seems to always turn out that there was a picture you didn't take or bags you didn't label or notes you failed to jot down. The problem I'm having is re-assembling the turn signal mechanism in the steering column. There is a wire spring the attaches to the groove in the shifter shaft and I believe it's attached to the turn signal mechanism. I'm guessing it serves as the cancelling mechanism with the pins on the steering wheel. I'm at a loss to remember how it attaches to the mechanism and the last thing I want to do is break something. I've searched Packardinfo looking for a picture or description to no avail. As a newcomer, I'm not as skilled at knowing exactly where to go. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this properly installed?

Thanks! Joe

I use a lot of Eastwood stuff but I haven't tried their header paint. On this engine, the exhaust manifold was media blasted then primed with VHT primer and painted with "High Temp Exhaust Coating" aerosol by OER (Original Equipment Reproduction) in cast iron grey. The engine was run for about 30 minutes over a couple of sessions for break-in. So far, the finish has held up.

It's been 4 years this month since I started rebuilding my 1949 Series 23 Club Sedan. I have chronicled the progress on the Packard Club Project Blog. I will continue it there until completion. I have started following the projects on Packard Info and would like to add some of the highlights of my efforts on this site. The car is now in the re-assembly process with completion this fall. I have attached a picture of the car the day I bought it and one from today.
