Thanks for the info. I've decided to go the mechanical switch route.

Thanks everyone for the info and advice. I've decided to go with packardparts mechanical switch conversion kit. Seems like the simplest solution. I'm thinking this is what has been ailing the Torsion-level system lately.i ordered the kit today and look forward to installing it!

Anyone know where I can purchase the 2 pole brake light switch and relay conversion kit? This seems like the smart way to proceed.

'56 Patrician Torsion-level brake light switch

Hello fellow Packardites,

Out '56 Patrician has had an issue with the Torsion-level suspension for a while. Solenoids are clicking, but I don't observe any noticable leveling.
After a short drive, it does seem to level out though.
Today I noticed that the brake lights are on constantly. Could our problem possibly only be that the brake light switch has failed?
I've seen some threads discussing using a readily available 2 post switch with a relay, as opposed to the OEM three post expensive one. Suggestions and advice cheerily accepted!

Treadle-Vac master cylinder losing fluid mysteriously

Our '56 Clipper has the Bendix Treadle-Vac power brakes and mysteriously loses brake fluid. No noticeable leaks anywhere.
Is this a master cylinder issue?
Too many pros and cons on the Treadle-Vac system to get a clear answer.

Thanks for the information. I assumed thats what was going on. I'll try to free it up or just remove it, as the Patrician is snuggled into her nice garage bed when the weather turns colder.

1956 Patrician heat riser

Good Afternoon,
I've been having a problem with our Patrician vapor locking.
Could this be because of a sticking heat riser? The right exhaust tailpipe drips condensation and seems a bit rusty. Isn't sooty like the left one either.

Hello Again Fellow Packardites,

I'm searching for a cross reference for a modern paint code for Egyptian Sand and Aztec Brown.
My Touring Sedan's paint is so faded out that I don't have a proper sample to use to color match. Any suggestions?
