Perhaps this vendor can help?

I had them build one for my '37 115C from scratch. No core to send them; got it a few weeks later, installed, perfect.

Not inexpensive, but worth it. Outstanding workmanship.

I've heard that '57 Ford sending units may work in your vintage of Packard but I'm not sure....

Can you find a 6v positive ground alternator? Might be quicker in a pinch to swap one in, have the gen rebuilt and then go back to the correct part. These can sometimes be found at places like Grainger for industrial applications, but they look and work just like a single wire GM car alternator.

(the PO of my '37 115 C swapped the generator for the 6v alternator, then lost the generator. It's still in the car. Grrrr.)

In a just universe that'd be a prosecutable crime.

I'm using Carter WA-1's on my '37 and '40 and have had zero problems with them.

My '37 had a bastardized version, with linkage cobbled up by a blind blacksmith. I picked up two others from ebay, bolted them on and away we went.

Fuel injection sounds pretty intriguing to me though!

She's back together but still on the lift. Didn't need to pull the pan completely, just enough to get in there and fish out the arm. Also found one of my valve keepers that I dropped when reassembling the valves last year. Minor damage to the spring support on the fuel pump arm, had to take that apart and repair it.

As long as she's on the lift I'll take care of a few other things after I take some ibuprofen.

Concerned to hear you had a non-vented cap, if you avoided tank damage consider yourself lucky.

How was pin supposed to be secured?


It's press-fit. Which baffles me because both pins looked to be the same diameter and fit exactly the same.

But the new pin was aluminum. The old one steel, I just discovered.

Well, this got interesting today.

First off, removed the non vented cap. A vented one is available from my '40 110.

Second, removed the jury-rigged 6v fuel pump and reconnected the mechanical pump. Tried to start her.

Nothing. No fuel whatsoever. Since I had fuel with the 6v pump and the former cap, I knew I did not have a line issue, and with the cap off, it could not be a vacuum issue.

Off came the pump, unexpectedly much easier as the fuel pump lever was no longer part of the pump. The retaining pin was there, but had worked it's way 'out' far enough for the lever and spring to fall into the oil pan, where it's still sitting. The pin was replaced during the fuel pump rebuild as the original had some wear and scarring. The pin was shorter than the original but I did not see any difference in diameter.

So this week I'll drop the pan (for the very first time) and retrieve the parts. Hopefully no other damage has been done.

You might try an infrared paint remover. While I used this on my (ancient) house, it is far safer than a torch or conventional heat gun.

I used this one; bought it 25 years ago and paid about half of this:

I've never seen anything like that. I have sealed beams in my '37 and am a bit jealous of those. Pretty cool!

I grabbed the vented cap from my project '40 110. Tomorrow I'll get after the project.

Jameson whisky for medicinal reasons at present.
