If no one here has one, the Carter 477S and 530s (pretty much same and both offered for Packard 6) show up on ebay. As previously mentioned, the Stromberg BXOV-26 occasionally. All are great carbs.
I hope this helps.

Hello All and Happy New Year,
Kev posted a repair article I wrote documenting my journey to resolve an annoying driveline vibration while overdrive is engaged. Since the article is a supplement to 1940 Service Letter, Vol 14, Number 11, it is now listed there along with the rest of the Volume 14 letters; you can find it here: (http://www.packardinfo.com/xoops/html/downloads/SC/SL-VOL14NO11_ADDENDUM.pdf)

It hope it helps for anyone who has a 1940 transmission with R9 overdrive installed and has experienced an annoying vibration. If you notice any errors or content missing, please let me know.

(by the way, my approach to increasing the overdrive engagement speed is in the forum here: http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=5476&viewmode=flat&order=ASC&type=&mode=0&start=0#threadtop )

That's terrible.
Yes, you are correct. I could build one up for you but the reproduction frame is not cheap.

I don't have an answer to that question, but can help on repair of the 28 if that helps. Those Northeast EF units are known for their poor pot metal frames.

Dr. Morbis,
The tree has spent its life trying to protect it, like a papa penguin protecting its baby, "Ask the tree that sheltered, hid, protected one".

Bring a whittling knife.

I thought some reminders of how to set up your Packard Showroom for the holidays are in order. This will convince Kevin to put up "The Lights". It just so happens that the 1940 calendar lines up with 2019.

All,
Chris gave me permission to show some of the repair of his 39 Six Stewart Warner speedometer.

This unit was a good example of needing cleaning and lubrication. Very good original unit.

Cleaning: Removing the old, crusty gear grease and bearing oil is always a given. What most people are not aware of is the tendency of the spinning magnet (cylindrical in the case of Chris' Stewart Warner) to attract metal debris (see photo). If large or thick enough, the debris then begins to contact the speed cup, whose shaft is directly connected to the speed pointer (or in older cars the rotating speed indicator, ala pre-30's Packards and other makes). The contact of the rotating debris then clutches with and drags the pointer to either full scale or bouncing.
As I stated prior in this post thread, hardened grease and oil can also cause needle bounce. Notice the before photo of the dirty mainshaft oil wick. Also, all the tan areas on the frame are the dried residue of oil and grease.

Lubricating: I use silicone based grease and oil so that the final unit should last longer than any of us. Not only does this make the needle pointer more steady, but makes the unit quieter and puts a much lower load on the drive cable and transmission driven gear, for long lasting service.

I hope this helps to explain the process.
Pat
