Those with a back seat (not rumble) were Victorias, I believe!

Re: 48 Packard Start Switch
Home away from home
Home away from home


My 47 2106 came with a starter button the previous owner had installed. I found that it was an inconvenience if, God forbid, I stalled the engine...esp on a hill. With the push button there is a lot of coordination needed..brake, clutch, starter button. With the carburetor switch, you just push down on the accelerator. Probably best to have both switches for maximum flexibility.

Folks,
On my 47 2106 the owners manual says the "ammeter" is not one! Is it a voltage meter, then_?

Re: Drivers door handle permanently locked.
Home away from home
Home away from home


Thank you! I appreciate your help.
I called a locksmith. He used air bladders to open the passenger vent a smidge and got the passenger door unlocked. The vent window was cracked, however.

Both did not fail at the same time, I assumed a previous owner changed the lock cylinder on the passenger door and I did not get the key. Now, I think I was wrong.
I was able to use the unlock button to get the passenger side open via vent window which got cracked.
However, the drivers door will open with the inside handle only and the lock knob moves and makes normal clicking noises.

I will open the drivers door and go from there.

Drivers door handle permanently locked.
Home away from home
Home away from home


I have a 1947 Clipper. I came out from dinner one evening last week and could not get my drivers door unlocked. The lock cylinder rotated normally but the door handle would not unlock. I tried the passenger door and the same problem. I thought at first the passenger lock had been changed by a previous owner. Now I think they both failed for the same reason.

Any tips on this repair?

Re: Engine Temperature Gauge Reading

Home away from home


There are plenty of them in Hemmings. I have never used one but plan to do so. I have aux gauges for engine temp and oil pressure I want to get rid of, But, not until the ones on the dash are rebuilt. Any recommendations for a vendor, anyone?
