We just had our '56 Patrician return home from Ross Miller's Speedwell Garage after a full Twin Ultramatic rebuild. Needless to say, we are EXTREMELY pleased with Ross' work! The old girl shifts smartly and positively.
Ros is THE MAN when it comes to things of this nature!

Brass freeze plugs are the choice when rebuilding or replacing.

i concur. Our '56 Patrician's torsion level is off pointing at the driver's door, on pointing to the passanger door. Off to the left, on to the right.

'56 Patrician Lower Right Body Trim

Hello fellow Packardites!

We are in need of the pictured trim for our '56 Patrician. I'm able to utilize my metalworking skills to fix this, but a replacement may be easier. Careless first hauler did this damage, then gave me a song and dance about why he was avoiding me for the return trip!(Not the fine gentleman that returned it to us.Don't get me started!!)
Availability and price would be very welcome!!


Thanks!

288 and 327 22nd series engine values

Hello All,

I'm trying to get an idea on a price for a freely turning complete 22nd series 288cu. in. and 327 cu. in. Straight Eight engines. Both probably need rebuilds but will most likely run with some TLC.

Thanks for the input!

It's O.K. up to 25 mph or so. You're probably right about the front seal ( leaves a trail down the street). I just put 2 quarts of fluid in. We just pulled it out of storage also. Fluid is O.K, not burnt.

Good Evening,
Our '56 Patrician's Ultramafic is leaking from the front and slipping in D.
No slippage in reverse or low. Anybody have troubleshooting solutions?
Thanks in advance!

I did. I've got family in Foster who could pick it up for me. Will that work in a '48 22nd series? Does it need rebuilding? Let me know, I'm quite interested.

Thanks for the info. I realize that a certain amount of work will go into installing it to work properly. You've mentioned wiring. Is that in the harness itself, or in addition. Also the cable, I'm assuming it's needed to activate?

22nd and 23rd series overdrive manual transmissions

Hello All,

I'm trolling about to gauge prices and availability on an overdrive transmission for a '48 Standard Eight. Does anyone have one for sale? Rebuildable would be O.K. also. Looking for one for one of my long term projects.

I figure an overdrive will be easier on my 288 or 327 straight eight on todays modern highways and speeds. Thanks in advance for all your input!
