I picked this part up from one of the vendors great OEM part good condition but the brace does not look right for the coupe or am i just not seeing how it works, one of the angled ends has to go against to trunk lid so the one piece is actually way too small the other might work but the plate isnt straight up and down when used alone.....i have no idea if the plate is supposed to be straight or lay with the trunk, how long should the brace be????????


Edit: sorry guys to many irons in the fire, I fill stupid

Following.....the hose in the pic from MM or Kanter (cant remember) i believe looks like it is rubber?????? i have been through this and ended up paying for a copy of the Packard blue prints of the metal tube, which i plan on taking to a muffler shop to see if they can make one. I would be interested to see if anyone has purchased that "hose" and is it metal or rubber?

The prewar linkage was apparently prone to many issues and if you go thru the service letters several suggestions and a couple of retrofit components are mentioned. Bushings at various rod ends in particular were a source of problems. Original rubber encased bushings on the shift rods were replaced with solid steel because of the rubber deteriorating and causing lock up issues. As to the garden hose, either noise or action is a possibility. The spring loaded rod going down the center of the shift tube that moves the tongue which selects a shift lever has rubber antivibration bushings in about 3 places. It is possible one or more of the bushings has deteriorated and the rod is vibrating or buzzing inside the shift tube. The garden hose could just be there to muffle the sound.


Hey HH56 i wish i had your confidence and knowledge on this LOL.....you mention all the rubber bushings and steel replacements and retrofit parts, are the aftermarket people carrying anything to go completely through the column shift???? guess ill start boning up and reading tons on this before i tear into that.

Very, very good. This should be part of any engine rebuild. People rebuild an engine down to the the half-thousandth on everything, but don't rebuild these items. They are as worn out as the engine is! (cue analogy of showering and putting your stanky underwear back on).


Pushbutton love your analogy made me laugh, I agree these are the basics of not breaking down or being stranded some where.........next are the brakes and a complete rewire.

The one thing that intimidates me that i have coming up as well is the column shift, it was real sloppy and pretty hard to find the gears. there is a piece of garden hose (i think) wedged between the column and the shift tube in the engine bay.....maybe to stop rattling or to not let the shifter fall out of gear???


Pat,

Way to go, it works!



LMAO who says you cant teach old dogs new tricks!!!

Yes he is and yes it is.....sometimes quality is worth waiting for, but if you have an emergency there may be others that might be able to have a shorter might have a shorter turn around, but i doubt it. Im still waiting for my dash cluster to be finished and its over a year at this point from a different vendor.....not sure the quality sacrifice would be worth it, the list of stuff he did to my parts was pretty impressive, he had the vacuum advance rebuilt and re-coated to look new original, new armature, bearings, oil cups.....the list goes on and on

Attached are pics of the completely restored starter, generator and VR, and distributor. All bad and wear parts have been replaced along with all the questionable parts as well. All parts have been cleaned bead blasted and powder coated and they look awesome!!!!. All Parts have been bench tested and setup/adjusted for optimal performance.

Great Job Jason!!
