What is the correct air cleaner assembly for 23 series
Home away from home
Home away from home

Deskdriver
I have lots of questions but one that I need answered so I can get '49 / 23 series registered. When I got the car the air filter assembly is missing. Contacted a few on line dealers in parts. 1 company doesn't have any and the other has 1 for $275 and oil bath type. Was asked "Oil bath or dry?"

I have seen a few different ones, oil bath and dry. So which one is correct for Standard 8? There are a few junk dealers that offered ones at lower prices. Just not sure which one is correct. Or, should I just buy a K & N and worry about this later.

Thanks for the advice!

Again, thanks for all the help! After spending a long time under the dash (Off to the Chiropractor in a few minutes), nothing was found. Re-wired the ignition again. Checked everything twice, no current coming from the battery.

Test light shows battery charged, but there was a problem in the quick connect that someone else has installed. Stupid problem which was corrected. Now she's running!

Plus,taped up a bare wire while under the dash.

Must have short, the ignition checked out fine with the ohm meter. Double, triple checked my tagged wires and the terminals. Installed the back on the ignition and nothing. Before I started messing with it, it fired up and I drove it home.

The wires to the carb, starter, distributor and generator have all been changed to new wire (Should say newer wire, plastic coated). So this is going to be a challenge.

I have downloaded the schematic from this website and printed it. So I think I'm all set, except for the chiropractors appointment when finished.

Thank you all for writing and don't stop either. Everyone has been helpful.

It doesn't crank at all now.
Its a 2392, and yes the key goes to the left and right (which I thought was like using accessory setting on current cars) nothing happens either way.

I think I will start with Owen's suggestion with ohm meter, then check voltage under the hood. I was just concerned I missed a mystery wire somewhere.

If worse comes to worse I can re-wire the "Rigged" switch (Actually a household on / off switch or some call light switch)so I can get the car back into the garage again (I hate pushing it)

Thanks for your help.

1949 Standard ignition switch
Home away from home
Home away from home

Just got my Packard a few weeks ago, there were no keys for it. Some previous owner rigged an on/off switch on the steering column. No idea how long that has been there.

After labeling the wires one by one and using the "Rigged" switch I removed the ignition to take to the locksmith. I slipped a nut and bolt through the wires so I could start the car and move it as needed.

Got the ignition switch and reinstalled it leaving the "Rigged" switch out. Now it doesn't start. My question;
Does the ignition switch go out on these cars? I have double checked my wiring and everything appears as it should except the "Rigged" switch is not in the loop.

Oh! another question just came to mind, would a "Rigged" switch require a change in some other place beside the ignition switch, as an example under the hood somewhere?

Should I just buy a new ignition?

Thanks for your help.
Barry
