It has the side mounts so would be up to 1950 and sometime in 1949, R9 was replaced to R11. If indeed R11, then itís 1949-1950. Before 1949, it was R9 and before that it was R6.

At my Oregon shop with its extremes of temperature (especially inside the uninsulated building) I keep them connected through a charge controller to a 100 watt solar panel on the roof when I'm not there. Otherwise they get ruined in short order. In your case, though, for a driving car it should not be necessary so perhaps some work or upgrades on your charging system are in order.

This gave me a chuckle but glad to hear that it was worked out in the end. Good job in discovering the problem!

1951 200 Distributor Points

Iím trying to help an acquaintance find points for his 1951 200 with Auto-Lite distributor and spent about an hour at Napa today. Using numbers on the X-Ref page on this site and following Napaís cross references system, one was found but it turned out to be totally different. Even pulling out their old manuals didnít help so is there a better number? Iíve got to go back to town tomorrow morning to pick up the cap which I hope is correct and can look again if anyone has a valid number.

Today was my deadline to get the front brakes back together before closing up my Oregon shop to return home on Friday. Therefore I guessed that the longer spring goes to the rear spring but if thatís not correct and someone comes up with a definitive answer before I come back, I can easily reverse them.

The Sothebyís sale price also includes all the fees and commissions so Iím not sure how that might figure in on the value of the car itself.

Based on the taillights, it is a 1954 Convertible (thatís what it was called) which had 1953 Clipper fenders that normally had vertical lights. The side by side senior Packard lights were blended in using chrome pieces on the outside of the fender and a smaller one on the inside toward the truck lid. The 1954 Pacific was done the same way but it was a 2-door hardtop. I never saw one without its lights, though, so now I know how they gave clearance and access to the lights.

I have all the front brake parts that were sent to me for my 1951 Henney. Two of the little shoe hold-down springs that attach them to the backing plate are a noticeably longer than the other two. Which shoe gets the longer and which the shorter?

Relating to the comments made in this post after #3567 in relation to the proper oil filler tube, I discovered that I have three different types. The one in the center is what my Patrician had on it when I bought it over forty years ago and was recently changed to a straight one, such as that on the right (but with the proper cap).

However, it is apparently supposed to have the one on the left which tilts it toward, and nearly touching, the engine. According to the experts here, that was done after it was realized the cars with power steering had the pump blocking the airflow into the crankcase and having it tilted, the air was able to flow into it properly.

Is this a factory condenser? If I asked this elsewhere my apologies but I need to be sure.

Note: uploading the photos seemed to have caused an odd Moirť pattern to appear but itís not on the actual part.
