Apparently it all boiled down to a vapor locking issue. I need to pull the thermostat and radiator and give it a proper flush and backflush. I'll tighten up the fan belt a bit also. Looks like a good spring project.
Thanks to all for your suggestions.

Thanks. The Packard color chart for that year states the color as "Egyptian Sand Metallic".
Thew color chart for our '56 Clipper also states "Tahitian Jade Metallic".
Neither of these have any hint of metallic in them! Makes me wonder why!

modern cross reference paint codes

Hello all,
I'm attempting to find a cross reference paint code for Egyptian Sand Metallic for our '48 22nd series Touring Sedan. I've seen paint jobs that were supposed to be Egyptian Sand, but were way too tan. I don't have a part of the car with the original color that isn't faded out to get it matched to. I know that the color is more of a putty gray than tan and would appreciate any suggestions or assistance!

Thanks for all the suggestions and help. The '55 system is a bit different than the '56. Looks like some "on my back, under the car" time with the multimeter is in store for me!

1956 Torsion Level troubleshooting issue

Good Afternoon All,
After bringing the '56 Patrician out of winter storage this year, I attempted to diagnose the issue of the Torsion Level not working.
Both fuses are OK (30 and 7 1/2 amp inline), brake lights are functioning, solenoids are clicking. It just doesnt seem to be adjusting the level at all. The solenoids seemed to be clicking more loudly than normal last year, but when you applied downward force to the rear bumper, it would level back up. Not at all now. It wasn't a gradual thing, just worked and then it didn't. Any suggestions or similar problems?
I'm hoping for an easy solution!

Thanks for all your help! Brazing or silver soldering was what came to my mind after I beadblast the wheels. Braze and solder loves clean metal to flow on.
Think I'll just blast and paint them andgo sans tubes.

Thanks for the input. I was musing about laying some brazing around the rivets to seal them up also.

22nd series '48 Club Sedan tubeless tire upgrade.

We're planning on putting radial tires on our 22nd series '48 Club Sedan. I've been told that you don't need to run tubes with them on the original wheels(all beadblasted and painted). Has anyone tried just installing tubeless stems and running without tubes? Should be interesting to try and find a tire shop that knows how to mount and balance tires with tubes. I've heard opinions on both ways. Anyone have experience with this?
