Sorry it's been awhile since I last updated. I have gotten the starter rebuilt and reinstalled.
Installed the crossmember with the new mounts from Steele Rubber. fit was spot on.
Also installed the new exhaust from e-bay fit was decent still need to get the hangars that go on the rear of the wheel wells. trying to decide if I want to go out the bumpers like factory or under the back bumper.
More updates to follow as I'm trying to get the wife's 50 Desoto going at the same time as the Packard.

Re: Ignition switch ground

Happy Holidays Everyone, The problem I'm having is that when the original switch is installed the ignition does not work. put in the aftermarket switch it works. I'm guessing there is not a good enough contact with the dash? so if one could hook up a ground on the outside of the switch would that help? The tabs on the bezel are a little bent also. straightened them out I'll try it out and let you guys know.
