Thanks,
Everyone for your insight. I'll try it again if it's warm enough this weekend. I'll run the engine till warm, turn off the engine and see where the leaking is coming from.
If it is the vent, I'll take off the radiator cap to relieve the coolant pressure. If the leaking stops I can assume the trans cooler is leaking.
But first, I'll recheck the dip stick cap.

I have a 51 300 with a 53 ultramatic. I installed the transmission last summer, drove it a few times with no problems or leaks.
This winter I start the car every few weeks to keep the fluids moving. Last week I started the car, ran it for about 20 minutes, (no trans fluid leaking). When I turned off the engine I heard a guirgling sound. Looking under the car I saw trans fluid leaking on both sides of the pan.
I know I torqued the trans pan properly and attached the lines properly since I pulled the engine.
I started the car yesterday (33 degree temperature, the first time the tempertaure was about 15 degrees), and the same thing happened after I turned off the engine: no leaks when it runs, leaks after I turn it off.
Unfortunately it has been too cold to get under the car and see exactly where the leak is occuring.
Plese help, I finally have the car running on all 8 cylinders after the rebuild, the trans ran like new after the summer, and I was looking forward to crusing a soon as it gets warn.
Thanks everyone in advance.

I had problems starting my 51 300 after I replaced the rings.
I went from a braided ground strap to a 00 cable I got from Farm and Fleet, it was $10.00 for the two foot length. From the battery to the solenoid I bought the proper 30" length from McMaster Carr, $19.99. The new cables make starting a lot easier with the 6 volt system, and the cable ends do not get hot after a long period of cranking.

Thanks Owen,
I'll do that and plan on replacing the lifter during the winter when I can't drive the car due to the snow. I plan on driving the car a lot this summer.

I took replaced the rings on my engine, finally got it started and now have one noisy hydraulic lifter. The car is a 51 300 with the 327. The noisy lifter is in the front of the engine. Is there way to locate exactly which lifter is noisy before taking the head off?
Thanks in advance, also I would like to thank McGyver and Ross for their help on this Forum. I replaced my 51 trans with a 53 trans (the flywheels and trans to drive shaft are different),runs beautiful now, I followed Ross' instructions for adjusting the linkage and I had all the gears with the initial adjustment. I took McGyver's advise regarding using the red scotch bright pads to smooth out the cylinder honing. I used a 4" cotton wheel usually used for polishing, wrapped the pad around it and used my hand drill the re-hone (with the pads) the cylinder walls. Worked like a champ, no problems starting, and I don't burn oil anymore.
Thanks, again

I would like any help in repairing a hole I poked in my radiator last night. My auto is a 1951 300. I have sweated my copper pipes together in my house, and I did lead work on my Packard, so I have the equipment available,
(I hope). I would like some guidance.
Thanks in advance

Gentlemen,
Thank you for your responses. Ross, yes I did (after the first removal of the pistons) re-gap the rings, After the second removal I did get a groove cleaner and cleaned out the groove until they were shiny. I must get an new head gasket since the one I am using now has been on and off three times ( and the compression of #2 cylinder is 30 psi lower than the rest of the cylinders). But I feel better that the rings are within specs. I even went as far as polishing the outside edge of the rings on a wire wheel to remove the black oxide plating. I bought a starter on ebay last year, checked the inside, beautiful, no thrown solder or anything weird so I replace the brushes and I think I'll change out the starter tomorrow, get some STP (saw some at O'Reileys) and keep on trying. Thanks, again

HH,
Thank you for the information, however, what is in the manual is actually the piston ring thickness (note that the oil ring is twice as thick as the compression rings). My replacement rings are the same thickness. What I request is the horizontal distance from front of the ring to the back of the ring that fits into the piston groove. The replacement rings I got are .015 wider than the originals. I can't tell if the supplier gave me the wrong rings or the car I own has some kind of after market pistons that were installed before I bought it. I took the pistons out three times already, when I take it apart for the fourth time I need to know if I can just replace the rings or have to put in new pistons and rings.
Thanks in advance

Can anyone tell me what the width of standard size piston rings for the Packard 1951 327? The rings I took out are .144 width, the new replacents are .159 width. Is this correct?
Thanks in advance
