Thanks Howard, it does seem overly cautious.

Battery / inner guard 21st series

What purpose does the hole in the inner guard adjacent to the battery serve?

I'm having to replace my original "skinny" 6v battery with a 6V Optima and will need to seal of the resulting hole!

Rechecked my overdrive relay and I did cock up my terminal wiring! The Packard wiring diagrams all have the relay coils 180 degrees out! Even the new loom is suited for diagram rather than actual, talk about being set up for failure!

Anyhow, rechecked everything and got it 100%, went for a test drive, and bingo OD light comes on, lift off and the light goes out, slow down and she's back on again. So that is very positive. I could not detect any 'clunk' when you lift off the accelerator, though I assume it's all good as the plunger movement extinguishes the dash light.

Also my speedo settled down and is operating smoothly.

Yes, I did verify the stamped number on the terminals and wired correctly to the new loom.

Thanks Howard that picture helped alot. The previous owner had the realy mounted upside down, and what did I do, mounted my new relay upside down too! Hopefully no damage was done.

Finally got the Packard out of the shed and went for a drive, but no overdrive light came on, so I'll move onto the govenor and check the wiring to the soleniod.

I had also fitted a new speedo cable, as the old one was broken at the gearbox end. The speedo bounced all over the place, so it looks like I'll need to get the speedo serviced as well.

Getting their slowly.

Cheers
Lyndon

Well I have been able to repair my fuel line issue with a flare adator as suggested by Howard above.

Next issue returns us back to the overdrive, the symtoms are with the car running and the overdrive in the loackout position, the relay buzzes away and the dash light flickers on. I have have an all new wiring harness and rebuilt relay. I'll be double checking the wiring to the soleniod. I also do have a reconditioned soleniod that I might fit.

Any one else experienced similiar?

Thanks

Quick question: How is the fuel gauge sender unit earthed? As far as I can tell the chassis frame and tank straps are lined with the anti-rattle material.

Thanks Howard, I'd thought that was the case. Any idea on what size the flare adaptor is?

Cheers

Next query, I recently received a new flexible fuel line from Max, however the fitting onto the hard line on the chassis is different. Basically the new fitting is deeper (more thread, say 2mm) and does not seal the flare.

With an electric pump, it sprays petrol (gas) everywhere!

Also I wonder if my steel fuel line has been tampered with??? As the end is flat I'm not sure that I'd get a proper seal on the flare?

Very frustrating as this issue has left my Packard "off the road", and I want to test my recent overdrive repairs!

Thanks
