Whereabouts is the data sticker? I can get a better photo. This is only a 30 minute drive from my house.

Out stretching the legs with my 2126, and came across this 38 / 39? Packard. Had to look hard, not much left! Located at Sandy Creek, halfway between Broken Hill and Menindee, far west NSW Australia.

You can see it above the bonnet (hood).

Thief proof number - 422924

Just replacing my water pump and I have just realized that two of the retaining bolts have spring washers and two have copper washers.

Which ones go where?!

Thanks in advance

My "long skinny" 6V battery finally died, and we have no sources for replacement here in Australia. So, I sourced an Optima 6V and base mount, which nicely fitted into the stock battery tray. More importantly this mod only required 4 holes to be drilled (I can live with that) and it is a very neat installation as I hate bastardised battery hold downs!

It also gave me the opportunity have to battery tray powder coated.

Thanks Howard, the courtesy lights can be stubborn.

Next issue, duly ordered a tune up kit for my Packard (356)which arrived with all the Auto lite pieces, however when I went to fit them, it appears my car has a Delco distributor fitted! This does not align with the parts manual etc. So, do I have a dizzy from a later car (327?), and would it be possible to find the correct distributor for my Packard?

Next issue, I have a couple of courtesy lights out, being one under the dash on the right hand side, and the other being the rear passenger compartmnet left hand side (rear of front seat). My question is- how do you access the globes!
