fuel pump

Anyone have a suggestion for a good electric fuel pump for my 55 Clipper? I have been having problems with the original pumps to the point I can't trust the car to drive any distance. I haven't driven the car much over the last ten years, but have replaced three pumps.

Thanks for the offer, Owen. We have a NAPA in the next town over from me. I'll try them first.

I did try at a couple of locals but they did not have a match. The replacement cap I got was not a pushdown. I assume if I order a cap from a Packard guy it would be correct. There are no markings of any kind on the cap.
From the outside it is identical but when I placed them side by side I could see the new one was not as thick as the old one.

Couple of years ago I bought a gas cap from a Packard parts supplier. It was obviously not nos, but was new. Yesterday, I ran out of gas and went to remove the cap..It twisted but would not release. I ended up prying the ears on the cap open and it came off. Inspecting the cap with one off my other car, I found that the new cap was not as deep. Close but no cigar. Another case of replacement parts that don't work.

They are a pain. Here is what I do. I put on the puller as tight as I can make it. smack it tight with a couple of swings of heavy hammer. I use a long handled five pounder.
Soak it heavily with penetrating oil. bang it a couple more times. soak it down again with more oil. let it sit several hours, then repeat. Keep this up and it will eventually pop. May take a couple of days but it will eventually come off. I keep wondering if this is doing more harm than good, but it works. If you are near by when it pops, you will hear it.

I would agree that the colors are really a great combination, but seriously doubt it left the factory that way. Wonder what the interior looked like.

$165000, Whew. Hope he gets it. Must be absolutely perfect and then some. Didn't see the listing. Where is it? Also a couple of Caribbeans in Hemmings this month that sound very attractive for the price.

My Caribbean is the same color as the one being discussed. My sun vis0r is white and the lower color being dark green or I believe "Emerald" Is it possible that it was color code dependent on what color was used.
