Cormorant ID
#21
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

H.E.PennyPackard
Hello,

Can someone help me identify if this is an actual cormorant or a knock-off? To me, it looks like the later swept back wing versions rather than the one I need for my 49, but I'm not an expert on these. I'll take it if it's a legit Packard piece and not an aftermarket swan even if just to swap at a later time with someone who needs one. It's bunched with other obviously knock off pieces which is why I'm being careful.

Thanks!

Thanks for the boltdepot resource, not sure how I didn't find that just on google or maybe I didn't realize they sell small quantities if I did see them come up in a search. Anyway, I can't find the special sized heads, though I will contact boltdepot to see if they can get them, so I'm going to most likely get regular hex heads.

Is 3/4 length the right choice? 25/32 is the head size I thought, didn't see a length anywhere but I'd imagine too long and it won't hold the skirt on tight.

Skirt Bolts 2262
#23
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Hello All,

After many searches I was able to determine that my 49 Deluxe 2262 takes this size bolt for the fender skirts:
Packard part number 399938 fits 1948-53 All models. This is a 5/16-24 X 25/32" bolt.

Thanks to motor city packards for that information on a previous thread. Unfortunately their project to sell these seems over. I can't seem to find anywhere to get this size, and generally all the stores around me don't seem to carry many fine threaded grade 8 or stainless bolts anyway.

Would any 5/16-24 x 3/4 grade 8 hex head work if I just order a box off amazon? Boxes of 50 of these seem to be pretty reasonable at around $12 for 50. I understand the original size was different to accommodate using the Packard emergency tools to remove the skirts, but that's not a concern of mine as I keep a well stocked toolkit in the trunk at all times.

Thank you!

That is very cool, though I just went with this Bluetooth Speaker which charges with solar panels, has a charging bank via usb for phones, aux input, and 60hrs of play time. The only thing it doesn't have is AM/FM, which I don't really listen to anyway with streaming music. The flashlight feature also comes in handy in the car at night or rooting around in the trunk.

2262-9 Door Locks
#26
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

H.E.PennyPackard
Hello,

Just double checking before I pull the trigger on some replacement door locks for my deluxe 8 (2262-9). Does this description sound right:
The shafts are 5.0" long. The lock front face is 15/16" OD, and the lock barrel is 7/8" OD.

I don't remember what I did with the broken shaft and the doors are back together... just don't want to waste money on the wrong ones!

Thank you!

A siphon is good thinking, luckily my drain plug is in good shape and works well. I continued driving the car to use up more gas (and because I can't resist) and I'll probably just buy more gas cans from the store. Hopefully the next radiator shop gets the job right!

Well... thanks for the info! Looks like I'll have to find a better way to drain the tank. At least this helps me in my calculations so I don't run out of gas out on the streets! Right now the broom handle method is my gauge, though it's also an estimation largely because I'm not sure how inches of gas on the handle equates to gallons in the tank! It's a fun dynamic keeping it topped up so I don't run out but also with the goal of running it down to empty it.

Gallons per minute

Hello,

For frustrating reasons I have to drain and drop the fuel tank again on my 49 Deluxe 22nd sedan (288). What makes it more complicated is that the gas gauge isn't working, something I hope to address while the tank is off. Does anyone happen to know generally about how many gallons per minute at idle the 288 will go through? I have a 5 gallon emergency tank but I'd like to go through as much as possible to avoid unnecessary gas transfers in the driveway.

Thanks!
