Re: 1941 120 3 Speed with Overdrive Wiring?

If so, there would be a valving device mounted to the rear side of the head on the drive side through which the throttle linkages go. If fully installed, there would also be a large diaphragm also on the driver’s side mounted low on the engine which is what actually actuates the clutch and a relay on the firewall that is large like a voltage regulator but with eight terminals.

Your photo, however, clearly shows an overdrive transmission as the solenoid and governor are there but not enough to see if it also has Electromatic. Overdrive and Electromatic were each available separately but when used together it was the closest Packard had in that era to an automatic!


Ah OK..I don't think I have that then..

The overdrive governor and solenoid are both electrically controlled and, if the car has Electromatic Clutch, then there may be some shift switches too. For just overdrive, none of the wires are needed for the transmission itself but, of course, they are if you want to use the overdrive. Packard did not use neutral lockouts on standard transmissions.


Hmm.. I wonder if this is the electromatic clutch transmission. The dash is too far apart to see if there is a switch for it.

Not sure what your “not concerned with originality” comment means, though


Meaning - I don't care if the parts are OEM, aftermarket, 12V, 6V, or exactly correct for my 1941 etc.. I don't care about car show trophies, etc..

1941 120 3 Speed with Overdrive Wiring?

Can someone tell me what all this wiring is for going to the transmission? What is actually needed for the transmission to function? Does it have to do with overdrive? Neutral safety?

I have cars made 30 years later with zero wires going to the transmissions, so this is a bit surprising to me.

It looks like there is an inspection cover of sorts. I plan to pull that and try to see the condition of the clutch.

Also, are there good drain/fill plugs for the transmission? I assume fresh fluid would be a good idea before trying it out.

Thanks for any help!

Need a bunch of parts for my 1941 120

So, here's the deal. I bought this 1941 not really sure what I wanted to do with it. A lot is missing from the dash area. I'm not an expert on these cars, so I have no idea what all is needed to piece it back together. Does anyone have a complete dash with all the switches, gauges, radio, trim, etc?? I still have the cluster. It's seen better days, but will probably clean up decently.

I'm also missing the inside trim that holds the windshield in place. I definitely need that.

The chrome trim is missing on the exterior between the two windshield panes.

The rear finish panel is missing.

Chrome pieces for the running boards are missing.

The 3 chrome bars that go above the bumper area are missing.

I also have a crack on the intake/exhaust and could use one of those if it is totally crack-free.

Oh, and does anyone know the availability on suspension bushings/ball joints/etc..? Kanter does not list them for a 1941 non-clipper, non-super..

I'm not concerned at all with originality at this point. I'm just curious what I can find, how much it will be, and then need to decide what route I'm going to go with getting the car on the road.

Thanks for looking!

It runs! Quite well actually. The engine is super smooth and quiet. Oil pressure was about 25psi.

I ran it 4-5 times for only maybe 2 minutes total. Hard to keep it going with starter fluid, and the smoke rolling off the engine was incredible!

It was pretty awesome. I should have setup some cameras and filmed it better.

Quite a bit of rust inside my plug wires. Are there any I can find off the shelf at a normal auto parts store?

Edit: I would guess a set for a later Buick straight 8 should be pretty close..

Napa was able to order me the UY6 / 842 plugs. Should have them tomorrow.

Tomorrow is looking a bit busier, so may be Wednesday before I can try to start it.

Starter works! Going to try to fire it off tomorrow.

Does anyone know of a common spark plug I can use in this thing? The ones I pulled off are Champion "UY6" Doesn't look like those are very common. I'd like to run the parts store and throw fresh plugs in it before I fire it...
