Transmission linkage bushing source?
#61
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Mark Buckley
Hi, all,

I have a 1950 Standard Eight with a manual transmission and an R-11 OD. I find that my transmission sometimes gets stuck in neutral when I shift from first to second, or vice versa. I have replaced the levers and bushing on the shift column, but this really hasn't helped. I believe I need to replace the bushings and linkage rods that connect to the transmission.

I have tried sourcing these at Max Meritt, Kanter, Tucson Packard and Seattle Packards. No luck anywhere.

Does anyone know where I might find these items or if there is a cross-reference for some or all of them? I have attached the Packard parts info below.

Thanks much,

Mark

Hi, All,

Just to let you know...I solved the problem by buying and installing a rebuilt Carter WDO Carb. I dinked around and dinked with settings on the old carb for many months and finally gave up. For less than $200 (Tucson Packards) I got a unit that runs like a champ.

ALSO...I have installed an in-line fuel filter (the car never had one, to the best of my knowledge), and am hoping not to have carb problems in the future.


All the best,

Mark

Extraordinary response to an eBay query

It's late January 2011 and I was looking at this eBay item--1939 Packard Sedan Super 8, which is really a convertible. URL is here:

http://motors.shop.ebay.com/Cars-Trucks-/6001/i.html?_fxd=1&_sop=10&_cat=6389&_pcats=6001%2C6000&_rkw=packard&_dct=1

I notice the seller has set a minimum bid of $85,000. I also notice that all the posted photos of the car were taken in October, 2008. I send the seller, "buy_it_now_classic_cars," an email, politely suggesting that he would probably have better luck selling the car if he posted recent photos.

This is his response, verbatim and in its entirety:

"Fuck u get in a plane dreamer

Sent from Marc's i phone, excuse if any typos"

I pump the gas and/or open the throttle.

Thanks,

Hi, all

I have a fuel problem that I'm having a hard time figuring out. I have a 288 with a Carter WDO carburetor. I often drive on the freeway at sustained speeds of 55+. When I exit the freeway and come to a stop at the end of the off ramp the engine always stalls. Always--unless I put her in neutral and keep giving it lots of gas.

This doesn't happen when I'm cruising at lower speeds on city streets and stop at stop signs or traffic lights. In those cases the engine backs down to idle just fine.

The condition does not seem to be related to the engine's heat--I don't think vapor lock is the problem. I have also loosened the gas cap, in case the vent hole to the gas tank was plugged and I had a vacuum. No difference there, as well.

My car's mechanical fuel pump seems to work fine and I also have an electric auxiliary pump. The car stalls whether I have the electric pump turned on or not.

Any ideas you can give me on this one would be greatly appreciated!

All the best,

Mark in Seattle.

Re: Anyone have a color wiring diagram for the 48-50 models?

Looks like the Packard Club has started selling a wiring diagrams book for $21.

I have no idea whether the diagrams are in color.

You may be able to learn more by calling them, as the link to the description of the wiring diagrams book on this web page does not appear to work:
