Well, I took a jumper wire to the starter; turned over every time; also with the carbureter switch. Pedal start still didn't turn it over. I'm meeting up with a mechanic from Ohio at the Packard National Meet here in Indiana on Saturday, so I may throw him an offer of stopping by to take a look. He may redo the engine and tran at some point, but would like to drive it in the meantime!

Are you sure its not as simple as the accelerator pedal bottoming out against the floorboard before its linkage has had the chance to trip the starter switch? If so, a very simple linkage adjustment.

Simple enough to check, disconnect the accelerator linkage at the carburetor and then fully rotate the carburetor accelerator shaft to wide open and see if the starter activates. HH gave you detailed instructions in post 2, or you can just eyeball it.
