advice on ultramatic for 1952

hello,
I have a 1952 with ultramatic. when I bought the car 5 years ago or so I was told the trans had been totally redone. the trans work very well.
The other day I was doing a variety of maintenance etc. I checked the ATF according to info in this website. I read to use Dexron or Type F. Well the dip stick says I need to ad fluid.
My question: Do I just ad the fluid mentioned or should I drain and refill with new fluid????
BTW the fluid looks very clean.....
thanks for your advice.

FYI on duane G post:
I called rebuilders specialty yesterday . they were very helpful. sounds like they do a great job and reasonable turnaround. I think they will be a good source. I will let you know.

any advice please on vacuum advance for my 1952 (2501) 200 deluxe.....
I know I need a new v. advance.
Do I buy a new part? I am afraid of NOS
and if I purchase a new part any recommendations from whom?
Or do I have my part rebuilt....? Is that done and by whom?

thanks. My v. advance does not hold any vacuum at all. it very well could be the original.
I am just starting to research this issue. I looked for a cross reference #. I have a delco remy system #1110825.
thanks

hello,

I am happy I opened this thread. I am trying to catch up on my Packard projects. so I have been very busy.


This thread reminds me about making a donation$; which I do periodically . I have not done so for a while.

I was just thinking yesterday that I must send $ when I complete some of these projects. This is a good opportunity to do so.

You all have a great summer and enjoy your rides.

some more great advice.
for the door window glass a local shop said he could do it for about $100.00. I am sure I can do the job myself. The price quoted me is high compared to montana. oh well. when I get down to it i'll make more calls.

thanks to all of you for responding to my question.
It sounds incredible and I hope to experience T-L someday.
Maybe when I visit the mainland someday.......LOL
I always like to hear first hand experience from other people.
I have a lot to learn about this subject and thanks to your posts I have a list of sources to check out.

Why wasn't this technology used by other auto makers after the end of Packard.......?
