55-56 Hose ID or Part #

All,

I cannot for the life of me remember or for that matter find, the specific part number for the 'hockey stick' shaped hose that goes from the heater control valve to the rear side of the block.

Yes, the 400 has sprung a leak (heater valve was new 10+ years ago) and I have coolant leaking from the unit under the dash. Also, at this writing I have cut the hose on the left and it is now off. I've tried repeatedly (no leverage and enough strength in my hands) and Im thinking that I'm going to have to remove the entire heather core box to get enough access.

Part # for the 'hockey stick' hose would be much appreciated. And tips tips on getting the hose off without cutting it will be appreciated as well.

Thanks you.

I cannot speak to ever removing a straight eight from a Packard. My experience is with a Packard V8 removal. That said, I think you are asking for trouble given what I see in the pictures. Using those supports as a sort of 'outrigger' is something I would never personally attempt. Further, brick crumbles under stress. Find another hoist and get more feedback from others.

Stewart,

I purchased the brass inlet housing from the Packard source that Howard mentioned previously. Have been very happy with it frankly.

Have enjoyed seeing your progress.

Thanks Howard for posting my initial link on the steering wheel repair. I hadn't read that in several years. I enjoyed the walk down memory lane.

I just go by memory and feel (4L60e) thus leaving it alone and original looking. But then, I'm the only person who drives my Packard.
