I recently had a brake and clutch master cylinder re-sleeved for an MGA, and the guidance I received back from Apple Hydraulics was to not use silicone as it was unknown whether the rubber parts/seals are incompatible with silicone.

Been enjoying some nice weather finally, and driving the Panama to and from work whenever I can. Patients love it, especially the "more experienced with age" guys who are into classics and remember what a Packard actually was.

A nice relaxing drive home from work:

1954 door lock pulls
#23

David Uphoff
I am working on a 1954 Super Clipper. It's my first Packard. I have purchased new rubber pulls for the door locks (and many other items). One went on flawlessly. The other three not so much luck. I pulled the trim on the right front door and the little serrated "thing" that the rubber attaches to is missing. The right rear door is broken off so short I can't attach the rubber pull to the serrated "thing". After a liberal application of white lithium grease the door locks and unlocks nicely with a hook on the little eye where the "thing" should be attached. Any idea if the serrated "thing" is available anywhere? Or any Idea what the "thing" is called?

On a side note... I'm the third owner. It came from an estate with the last caretaker taking possession in 1977.

Great to know that I can kill two stones with one bird (or something like that) to get the hardware cleaned while I’m at it!

1949 Super 8 DeLuxe
This is the information I didn't know to ask for. I get her july 9th and I cant wait to check these things out.

Little stressed about the finess some of this is going to need but I'm dedicated so I'll figure it out.

Kinda wish I had a packard guy with me when she gets off the truck but I guess that's part of the fun.

Oh man. I really appreciate the responses.

I just knew when I bought this car that I was buying into a club of cool guys who like cool cars. It's a major addition to the purchase. At 37 I'm a little younger than some of you but I plan on passing on these traditions.

Lol now I'm missing something. I thought based on the diagram there is only one light holder for the speedmeter, which is on the right side of the cluster. And only a total of four light for all three clusters. Money is not an object. The mechanic installed new wiring harnesses and I was just surprised that only one side of the speedmeter cluster lit up.

I must be missing something. Why not just put a new bulb in the holder at the left side of speedo and enjoy the light show. From your description that one is plainly burnt out or disconnected. What is to be sad about?? A #55 bulb will cost you all of a dollar.
