brake light switch 47 clipper

Josef Lichtenberg
Dear all,
i have a new brake light switch from kanter and it is sweating brake fluid a little bit at the thread. the old switch was assembled without any seal inside the hollow screw number 1.0100 . there was no leak.
my question: must there be normaly a cupper ring or something else? in the "master parts book" is no picture.
I have tighten the switch firmly. i am afraid to destroy the switch if i tight it more tight or to have a leaking break. do you have got any thoughts?
best regards Josef

thank you very much to all your advices. I will check this weekend on the next yard test drive with low speed. I hope it is only a small issue. Stay health and have a great time in your Packards, BR Josef

thank you. so in summary i understand, you can only switch the overdrive on or off when the car is in slow motion. i did this last time obviously with the car standing still and therefore my freewheel is still engaged but the overdrive is not. ( i did it during the assembly) i will try at about 10mph in the first gear to switch the overdrive on and off to switch off the freewheel. before i check the outer and inner cable of the knob if everything is ok. many greetings

thank you very much for your fast reply. one question: shifting the overdrive knob forward and backward is only possible while car is moving? BR Josef

47 super clipper overdrive freewheel mode

Dear all,
if i drive in first, second or third gear at low speed, with overdrive not shifted by shift cable, it looks like the freewheel mode is engaged.
speed is aprox 10-20mph. no engine break feeling, only a very silent rotation sound from transmission.
I guess there is something wrong? Freewheel should not work in this situation. But it looks like it does. How to disengage freewheel mode? driving reverse is possible. is there a somehow a improvise to switch of freewheel?
thank you very much in advance for your thoughts,
BR Josef

47 super clipper carburator problem

Dear all, we have used a overhaul kit for the Carter WDO. the engine is complete overhauled too. new piston, bearings etc..engine runs smooth, starts well. ideling, acceleration, all is fine. starter switch works well. But if the engine has got the right temperature the engine stops running during shifting. To explain this: during shifting, i have not my right foot on the accelerator pedal. the engine turns slower then idle speed and wents out. what could be the reason? if she is running with the automatic cold start flap closed, no problem. only if she is hot. the throttle shaft bushing situation is not like new, i guess you could imagine this. but could this be the reason? do you have got any ideas?
