You can see the capacitors in these pics. The schematic will tell you the values and how many you need (link below last pic)

If yours is not working, it likely needs new capacitors. Pretty easy fix.

Carb starter switch for '52

I'm looking for a carb starter switch for my '52. Mine fell apart and no longer functions. Right now I am "hot wiring" the car to start it. I would prefer to restore with the carb starter switch rather than adding a starter button in the car unless the switch is too pricy. Thanks!

My boss is rich (over 4mil net worth) and has a 98 Mercedes that sits at one of the shipping docks rotting because he thinks its worth a ton as the last Mercedes model made in Germany. Nothing works right on the car. I'll take my '52 Packard and '66 Cad convertible any day. At least I enjoy them.

Well I can't explain the behavior the starters did when hooked directly to the batteries, but on a whim I replaced the entire ground cable and finally the car turned over (must have had damaged wire in it). In fact it kept turning over even when I took my foot off the gas! Some violent stomps up and down on the gas pedal made it behave again. Now the problem is the starter keeps running after the car starts! I took the vacuum switch off the carb to clean it and the outer rim disintegrated. Now I have to jump the terminals to get it to start again. I don't want to go with a starter button (I like starting it with the gas pedal) so I will have to try to find the carb from my old car to steal the switch from or source another used one. At least I can move the car!

Exactly! I even ran the car a few times in the winter with no problem as long as it wasn't too cold.
