I had a knocking noise in one of my cars (not Packard) and it was the engine mount...I was soooo relieved!! Check the engine mounts??

Definitely try something like Seafoam or another chemical first. When I first bought my car, the lifters were noisy. I used chemicals and got it down to about 10% of what it was.

The one on the right is an Autolite.

Viscosity chart was an eye opener.

BTW, I took the car out Sunday morning and at 65 MPH it was holding a steady 50 LBS of oil pressure. With the OD there was no strain or hesitation in operation of the engine.
Thank you Packard for your engineering skills!!

As to the 1006 filter, John used to own the car before I bought it. He recommissioned it. He documented it beautifully. The pictures he showed of the filter pertain to that recommissioning. Evidently a previous owner had put on the V8 oil filter because it is larger. That is why there was a 1006 filter showing in the picture. I have the original oil filter but I have not reinstalled it because to me the V8 oil filter makes a lot more sense. So, I use the 1006 on this particular engine. And I think the previous owner whoever he was for putting on the larger oil filter.

The original oil pressure gauge and the auxiliary oil pressure gauge usually agree. I generally go by the auxiliary gauge because it's a lot younger than the one in the dashboard!

John,
Thank God for your pics!! You saved me a lot of work.
Weather permitting, I will take the car out on the beltway early Sunday morning for a high speed run. You would not believe the traffic! Rush hour now starts at 2:30!

I got my house to market too late this year! Off soon, then back on in the spring. I cannot wait to move....to many people up here! And Amazon in coming! Madness!!
