HEH is a possibility

Paint code H is Adriatic Blue which is a metallic dark blue and paint code E is Danube Blue which is a non metallic light blue

It appears that it is at least off by 90 degrees as the outlet should face forward. Here is a photo of the pump from my 1954 Patrician blog and yours should be the same, yet I see one of the fittings aiming forward the outside of the car. Youíll definitely have to take it off again to see whatís amiss!


The orientation of the pump as shown in post #405 is correct with the outlet pointing towards the front of the car

The spring on the NOS points should be installed underneath the copper strip, not above it.

I have a used switch available, but shipping from Canada to the US tends to be expensive.

They are for 1946-50 and there are 2 different types:
For Junior cars with 5-1/2" wide wheel rims the inner ring is about 3/8" lower than the outer edge.
For Senior cars with 6" wide wheel rims the inner ring is flush with the outer edge.

So decided to get the gas tank properly cleaned and tested. Should be ready in the next couple of weeks.

Question. They asked what color I wanted the tank painted after primer......................I honestly donít know. Didnít look like it was painted originally. Been searching the forums and the web to no avail.

Should I just paint it black? Or a silver to kinda match the original state?

Another question
Can the fuel sender be cleaned up and tested? I did read somewhere about ohm readings for them. I have 2, other then fuel varnish on them they look? .....fine? It seems a $70 replacement in the US is $230+ here in Canada. And Napaonline wonít ship to Canada........go figure.

Still airing the car out, might get in the garage for the winter yet 🙄


I stand corrected, maybe amazon.ca is an option


The gas tank was originally coated with terne plate which is a tin/lead alloy that has a dull silver colour, so silver would be a good choice.

The float arm on the Ford/Thunderbird fuel sender is a different length than the Packard one but otherwise the same as the Packard unit.
It would be worth trying to clean up your old fuel senders. They can be taken apart by carefully bending the tabs that hold the upper unit together. The resistance wire that is wrapped around a semi-circular insulator is often damaged.

You might try checking with the Mustang Shop in Calgary for a replacement sender.

Question
Is there not a body illustrated part plate for the 1956 Executive 5677A? was hoping to find something to narrow down the search for the body moldings.. I see stuff identified in the actual Master parts list, but being unfamiliar with some of the terminology(what I would call locations), I'm a bit lost................


There is no separate illustration for the Executive as it was such a late addition.
Closest will be Plate No. 9 for the Custom Clipper.

Location is determined from the Group No.so you need to go to that number in the parts list and look for 5677A part numbers. This can be a bit confusing since the same part number can be used for other models with a different description.

For example on the front fender, Group 30.7805, the heavy cast pot metal moulding part number is shown as 461354-55 Right & Left Center for 5677A and other Clipper models but is also shown as the upper moulding for 1955-56 Packard models. Basically the same part used for all 1955-56 models.
Moulding 6485450-51 is shown as upper for the 5672A and 5677A Executive models only as it is different from the upper moulding for Clipper models.

Hope this helps a bit.

Speed nuts for the trunk script are the barrel type that press in to the mounting holes and the pins on the script are lined up and pushed into place.

A word of caution on the engine.
V8 Packards that have been sitting for a long time can have stuck valves that will hit the top of the piston and cause some nasty damage.
Make sure that the engine turns over freely before trying to start it.
