Re: temperature problem?

Howard. I've had the mechanical gauge in the hose for a while to do a comparison with the factory gauge and to keep tabs on the temp as I make/made adjustments. IIRC, 180 degrees on the mechanical is about 1/2 way or just past, on my factory gauge. I will keep it there as a reference until I'm satisfied that when I come off the highway, and get stuck in traffic, or just plain caught in stop and go traffic, that my temp will not climb to over 200 degrees. I did the paper test before putting the car away for the winter. It barely sucked in in to the grill from about 6 -8" away at idle. I'm hoping that the shroud will make a big difference in how fast and how far away from the grill it will suck the sheet of paper in. Between the shroud, going through the timing again, checking the float level and re-doing the needle settings in the carb, and using Allied Chemicals(this is not a plug, but recommended by su8overdrive) flush, using water as my coolant with their additive, I hope to have it running better than it has in the past. Boy.... that was a really long winded sentence...

If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

Thought I would post this picture. Some have told me it's not required. A very experienced Packard person that I was directed to and called said if I could market it as a kit, I could sell these. It took some fiddlin', but I got it fabricated and installed. Just waiting for the snow to clear and the salt to get washed away to go for a test run to see how well it works, but most of all, clearance so it doesn't scrape under acceleration/deceleration.

SamS: I made a new one for my 2362. Mind you, I had one to use as a pattern. I used 3/4" round bar stock. Maybe a bit overkill but that's what I had available. Turned the ends down to 1/2" and threaded them 1/2"-20 NF, as that's what the thread on the rod was, and the rod was actually 1/2". If you PM me your e-mail, I would be happy to send you dimensions and pictures of what I did. I have not installed it yet so it's easy to do.

Rechecking the timing is on the list when spring rolls around and winter projects on the car are completed and all this stuff is gone. First picture is my son digging out the shed to get more gas for the blower and the second is my back door this morning. No cooling issues if I were out driving now!

Gentlemen: Found a possible contributor to my issue of the engine running hot. A piece of exhaust pipe bent rather poorly. It looks like someone tried to bend it by hand, and in doing so, collapsed it somewhat. In installing new exhaust pipes because I knew they were not correct for several reasons, I re-discovered this piece of pipe. I had forgotten that it was there.

Thanks guys. Howard, I saw that picture, it's close, but where I'm stymied is the routing over the rear axle. There's a brace, and the shock. I need to know how it runs when it goes over the axle and that picture, unfortunately does not offer enough detail. I have pipes that are suppose to be bent as per factory, just need the routing, because that ones I took off the car, the tail ended up under the hole in the bumper for the jack. That can't be right!

Thanks to all who have responded. I am stuck to a degree because I have the axle pipe through the hole in the frame and partially installed. Not sure if it's in the correct spot, and I haven't figured how I got it in there 'cause I can't get it back out ....as of yet.

Exhaust Pipe Routing

Hello all. I have been searching for information on the routing of the exhaust for a "49, 23rd Series, with the 288, without sucess. Primarily after the muffler. I know where it goes through the frame, but need direction as to where it is suppose to go when it goes over the rear axle. Would someone mind posting a picture(s) or pm me and I will respond with my e-mail address so that pictures can be sent to me directly. Much appreciated! Thanks in advance for all that help. Cheers!
