Love the hand made hood but in my opinion, the hood ornament on the roadster is your finest piece of small art. You should post a pic for your fans with and without the high beam on and give a brief description of how you came up with the design.

You sound rested after your trip to Africa! Didn't you have anything to do???? 😂

I had a problem with my solenoid as well. I did mess around with it but I decided that it was best to just get one from a rebuilder like Max Merrit. That starter is extremely hard to install and remove because of the weight and I didn't want to have to do it more than once. The money was well spent. Since I installed the rebuilt solenoid the starter works flawlessly.
I doubt seriously you will ever find a rebuild kit for the solenoid. When you open it up you will see it is
a magnificent piece of engineering as all the major parts are machined from solid copper.

Driving our cars should be fine. They dont spread the virus. Just don't stop and talk to anyone. I intend to drive mine but stop and talk to no one.
Also, I can drive my Packard to the grocery store. All it takes us wheels.

Wonderful work. I am sure that drive was fun. After we overhauled my differential, I simply could not believe that such an annoying and dangerous thing was gone forever. So, I'm pretty sure it's a great relief to have the car back to normal! Especially that gorgeous wood graining on the dash.

On Sunday mornings, weather permitting, I take my 47 Clipper to Panera for breakfast and then a drive to the Mt. Vernon estate along the GW Parkway. She starts right up and the OD works flawlessly since Ross Miller tinkered with the OD. Even with crappy ethanol gas, it is amazing how quiet the engine is at idle. Great engineering!

Packard instrument board servicing.

It appears from several postings on here that the instrument board was designed by Packard to be serviced while installed.

I need to install an ammeter on my 1947 clipper and am not sure how to get the new one in. I can pull the old one but putting in a new one would be very difficult as one must get under the dash with your head resting on the brake and clutch pedals and carefully put in the screws securing the ammeter to prevent cross threading them. Also, changing bulbs is not easy. Not many men my age can even do this (I have doing yoga for many years).
What is the method Packard technicians used to service the instruments?
Looking forward to responses!!

I would suggest the late 30's. The senior cars were of Rolls Royce quality and were hand assembled and customized to anything the customer wanted. The 12 cylinder cars are especially treasured these days.
