Hello PackardusOctovus,

Welcome to the overheating club, I finally overcome the problem by installing a six bladed fan from a 302cid Ford V8 engine from the 1970's. Had to enlarge the center hole slightly> I also fitted a shroud from a Isuzu pickup.Finally I fitted the radiator with a return overflow bottle and radiator neck.
Now the problem is getting the engine warm enough to use the heater.
Hope this is helpful.
Regards Pepepackard.

Hello Packard DAN,

A tip from one who has been there and done that.Firstly check the exhaust manifold is not bowed, use a straight edge and set of feeler gauges. Have the manifold machined to ensure that it is straight. If possible have it linished to remove any milling marks as they will act like a dreadnaught file and destroy the gasket. Make sure that the bolts that hold the manifold together are loose and there is clearance around the studs that secure the manifold to the block. Bolt the manifold to the block first and tighten the bolts. Then tighten the bolts that hold the two manifolds(intake and exhaust)together. It may help to use graphite powder on the exhaust manifold surface to allow it to move under operating temperatures.This is described in the service manual and found it works best.
Regards Pepepackard.

Hello Jr Packard 37,
I may be able to assist with both the generator and window crank mechanism, I need to know the part number if you have it, is it 314606and what length is the arm 14inch or 16 inch, what type is the generator, I have a Delco Remy that is the correct one for some 115c.
The cost of freight may be an issue as I am in Australia ( gods own country)
Regards Fred

HH56,
The Ford fan is from a 302 cid V8, it is solid, was fitted with air conditioning, the only modification was to enlarge the center hole to fit the Packard shaft.
I will send photos later,probably not until next week.The bolt holes were actually slots.
The shroud is from a brand x of some description but was the right size for the Packard.
Regards Pepepackard.

Have experienced overheating problems with my 1954 Clipper Deluxe(see photo on National Rally in Australia)Solved the problem by installing a shroud around the fan and a six bladed fan from a mid seventies Ford. Now the problem is getting it up to operating temp. on a cold day.
Hope this helps. Regards Pepepackard.

Hello Larry,
I have a used crass water distribution tube for sale however the freight cost may make it not worthwhile.I can also make you a stainless steel one.

Hello Neil,
Can supply you with the delete plate,the cost of freight for the radio head and box may make it non viable. If you can get a price on the freight I will deduct the cost of sending the delete plate from the freight of the radio head and box. If it to expensive I will sell you the delete plate.

Will be speaking to a new producer in January, looks promising and may make new grill louvers for both junior and senior radiators in mirror finish stainless steel.
