Re: Cloisonne' on Twelve Hub Caps

West, thanks for your thoughts and I entirely agree with your hypothesis but thought I might hold out hope that someone had some snipet of factory literature that legitimatized the green cloisonne'. Next time I see Bob Turnquist I'll try to remember to get his thoughts. Much as I enjoy Greenwich and other concours (and I thought Greenwich was a bit "flat" this year with not much diversity of Classics and brass cars, and too much space taken from show cars for the auction tent), it always bothers me to see incorrect details on otherwise lovely cars. Guess I'm just too old, and too much of a purist.

That's a case where either the original owner, or current owner (probably the latter) requested the green cloisonne to match the interior. Being a Packard, if the current owner made the decision, he is probably claiming "since it is a Packard, you could order whatever you wanted."
Stretching it a bit, in my opinion, unless you can prove that the original owner requested the green. If it were my car, and I had the original hupcaps/cloisonne, I would have displayed or had available, the originals. Without that, I think if I were a judge I would probably deduct points.

Milestones now attained, 170 Packards in the Owner Registry and 752 members. And one of the latest members is from Scotland, probably our first highlander, see his Packard under the Forum Name "scottish1701" in the Owner Registry.

Don't delay, add your Packards to the Owner Registry now!

.......tonight I ordered some parts from Max following a recent survey of requirements by Wade.

Parts being:

Timing Case Cover Gasket(Fix oil leak)
Timing Cover Seal & Retainer(Fix oil leak)
Manifold Gasket Set(Repair broken stud)
Ignition Cable Set(Replace present radio supression cables)

Only trouble with ordering things from the US, besides the actual cost, is the shipping charge which can be significant! Although I hope, for these parts, it will be reasonable as the parcel shouldn't be large or heavy which are big factors in the shipping cost calculation. We'll see.


Surprise, surprise! It's a public holiday here in Oz celebrating the Queen's birthday, shows our colonial heritage, although there is a big push for a republic. And on arriving home after running an errand found a Post Office courier delivering the parts ordered from Max! That was pretty quick, 8 days from ordering on-line to delivery! And shipping was significant, being US$42.00. Although they were light and not bulky they were in a fairly large box with lots of packing to fill all the empty space. Doesn't cost them but sure costs me.

And tomorrow on the way to the workshop will drop in and see Sam and Ivan and see if they can weld up the broken oil filter bracket for me. And this time won't go empty handed, will take a dozen cans of amber throat elixir with me.

Cuno filters are by-pass type. They are covered in some of the older editions of Motor's Manual.

John, the Burn Foundation Concours d'Elegance hasn't been at Lehigh University now for 2 years, it moved to Northampton Junion College in the same general area. It's a worthwhile show, though it will surely miss Bev Kimes at the microphone!

Thanks for the comments on cloisonne', I know of Ed Miller's car, and of course every single Twelve I've ever seen had red cloisonne', the question really was if any other color availability can be documented.

Glad to hear that the kits are a success. Certainly, in the future, the kits will become ever more popular and in higher demand thus increasing your profits from them and will lead to other great retro fit parts production oppotunities for you.

Thus far i am not aware of ANY negative feedback ever made about the conversion. I have no negative comments to make about it. I think it's GREAT!

Case is ground. 3 & 4 (the 2 lower terminals closest to stem) are the 2 solenoid coils. 4 & ground is the pull-in coil and 3 & ground is the hold coil.

Power 3 and if you pull out the stem by hand, it should stay out. Power 4 and it will extend but there is a set of internal contacts that may break the circuit just when it gets fully extended so it might "machinegun" ---depends on the adjustment of the contacts. If this happens you can tie 3 & 4 together.

It will work fine. It's just like the one I have. I bought mine used from a tool rental firm. They don't have much call for this type of tool these days.
