Thanks Howard for all the information.
So moving on, I figure this would be a good time to get the Battery Tray out of my way, since it does need to be clean and painted. Removed the four bolts and then for the life of me, I couldn't figure why the tray wouldn't come out. I had forgot about the two bolts behind the Drivers Front Wheel. Stupid me!
Got that out and moved on to removing the Shift Linkage from the side of the motor. Hardest part unhooking the arms going to the transmission. Found one of the bushings froze up. Next on the list start cleaning everything and another question about lubing the linkage. I would be afraid to use grease, due to it would collect dirt and act like a grinding compound or am I just over thinking this?
Also one last thing to remove are the arms going to the transmission and cleaning those up then I'll be ready to put everything back together.

Well finally got around to cleaning up the Shift Housing. Took a tube closed off one end and filled it with Evapo-Rust. Let it sit for a day while I cleaned up the shifters. Just wondering what Packard says about lube for that area. I was thinking maybe wiping all the moving parts with a film of oil?
Thanks for any advice.

Just look down the carb. and work the throttle linkage fast wide open. You should see gas being sprayed from the jets. If not your accelerator pump isn't working. (Engine off is fine.) If you do se gas being squirted then the accelerator is working and you will have to move on from there.

Check in the back of the "Serviceman's Training Book: Engine Diagnosis and Tune-Up" for more help.

Kevin, my hat is off to you! Excellent way to review a problem finding and fixing it. Too many times people take the shotgun approach and just start replacing any and everything hoping to hit the target.
Good going!

Jim, have you tried rename the file (photo) sometimes a device will add characters that are not acceptable.

Dell, You caught me, I got the whole unit mixed up with the individual sockets. Thanks on the offer for the Directional Signal Switch, but just got mine rewired and Ops. Checked Good.

Still soaking the Brake/Tail Light Sockets in Evapo-rust and will go from there in a day or two.
Thanks again and I will keep you in mine.

Gusha, looks like a little plagiarism between the last post you did The Sunday News Ridgewood 12 Nov. 1939 and The Philadelphia Inquirer 10 Dec. 1939, post 182.

Thanks all for the help and information. For now I'm only short one Drivers Side Brake and Directional Signal Socket but I do have a couple of spare that I'm hoping I can get one to work. It's more the internal springs have lose there spring.
Howard it looks like that gasket goes on the outside of the house just under the spring-able ring on the outside of the housing.
Dell let me see what happens first with what I've got and thanks.

Thanks Howard!
I wonder if those little round gaskets are still available for the light socket as shown in the previous post. Found all the other part at http://www.riwire.com as you stated.
