The engine weighs 700 pounds. I've had them bolted to the trans flange no problem using a chap 750 pound rated stand. PREFER a 1000 pound rated stand. If u don't mind spending the extra movey of about $200 u can get a stand with a gear driven turning head which is even more prefered.

When u get the oil pump off let's excamine it very closely. Do u have a digital camers???

HH56 gives good advice. Just hook it up to the gauge wire outside of the tank and test it.

Yeah, I plan on doing a thorough one over on it before trying to run with it. It is supposedly a low mile (58,000) runner. From reading all the previous posts on the oil pump, I think I had better check it out. I found Randy Bergers posts on the oil pump in a motor he was going through very helpful. Damn I love this forum.

Are there some things you think I should look for when doing this? Also, what kind of engine stand will hold this engine? I don't want to bolt it up to a standard one with the trans flanges. Thats a sure way to break the hell out of it I imagine/ Or end up with broken feet.

Ozstatman had posted a way of flushing an engine that he thought worked quite well. If it wasn't Ozstatman, it was one of those Aussies - you know they all look alike. The method seemed like it added a good bit of pressure and with the radiator out of the loop you can backflush it too. Just remember to remove the thermostat.

Yes, 5587 makes it a 352.

Chrysler-Ford-Packard used an ohm range of 10-70 for their senders and GM uses 0-90 and I think its reversed. When empty, Packard will be at max resistance whereas I think, but won't swear to it, GM will be at minimum. Best would be to pull it out of tank, hook it up, and see which way it goes. There is a sender, possibly still available from Ford, that will drop right in the Packard tank. Turbopackman has posted the details of that if you want to do a search on the site, or if that is unavailable, you could get the JC Whitney universal and use the directions that are posted in tech tips to install.

Well, a big thanks to turbopackman, I have found it!

Here is the number: 5587 3594

So, This must be a 352 out of another 400 right? I wonder what happened to old "3594"? Maybe a barbaque grille? Or a set of golf clubs?

The approved way was to use spare fuel sender to go thru the range. Probably not having one of those, you can BRIEFLY--not more than a few seconds--touch the wire coming from temp sender to ground. The gauge should start moving toward hot, and as soon as it does unground it. If you can find a resistor of about 40-50 ohms, insert that to ground in place of sender and reading should be around midpoint. If unable to find resistor, with the brief grounding if gauge moves, at least you know it is probably good.
