However I believe that the ash tray cover was only woodgrain finished in the 1106 LeBaron Sport Coupe, most or all of the others were nickel or chrome plated.


Dave,

It only looks woodgrained because it's missing . The cover was still at the platers when that photo was taken.

But, what an eye!

Cheers,

Tom

The radios were made by Philco. I am pretty sure they made all the pre-war radios.

Well, the engine has been removed! On Tuesday and Thursday of last week my brother Charlie and I worked to get various things ready for removal of the engine. On Saturday, with the help of a couple of pros, the engine was removed. To see photos and read about the experience:

Thanks for following along.

And here is what the radio looked like in that dash (less the knobs).

I have added a few more photo albums, on the gen rebuild, the gen cut-out/regulator, and the beginning of the engine tear down. Also added a new blog entry on the start of the engine tear down.

Visithttp://www.packardpaddock.com to learn more!

Mal,

Lovely shot of the oil filter! I just love my macro, and I am sure you will too! Great progress on the car. It is going to be a beauty once you are done.

Dave (OD),

Thanks for the info on the engine color scheme. Is that pretty much the same thing for a 1930 engine? Particularly the carb. Was it painted black or left raw.

Tom

Dear folks,

I have been pondering using this site or creating my own to track the progress on my Sedan. After much pondering, I have decided to create my own site, and use this site to inform interested folks of major site updates.

The site is currently hosted at:

http://web.mac.com/tpwilcox/Packard_Paddock/Welcome.html


At some point, I will move it to it's own domain.

For now, I have published several photo albums showing my efforts with the carb, vacuum tank, and distributor. I have also started on the blog.

Please note that I decided to go with my own site because of the greater flexibility it affords me, not because I have any poor opinions of packardinfo.com!

Regards,

Tom

Mal,

My temp sensor was also quite stuck (see photo). I did the PB blaster thing for a few days with no luck. Then I decided to try heating the head around the sensor with my MAPP torch. I would heat the head until the temp sensor indicated overheating, then spray in lots of PB while it cooled. I would spray PB repeatedly, every 25-50 degrees of cooling. The logic here was the heating and cooling would create micro-fissures in the corrosion, and the temperature differences during cooling would suck in the PB. No idea if my logic is correct, but it worked after two cycles of heating, cooling and PB blasting.

Good luck with it.

Tom

Barrie,

I hope you are careful with your knocking engine! You have a decent chance of destroying the engine, or at least making a rebuild that much more expensive and difficult, if you keep driving it. Any chance you can put your truck on a trailer for the meet?

Dave,

I am not sure who is doing the reproducing of these manuals. I will check when I get back out to the garage. There is also a manual for the 11th and 12th series (plus 120). It has a green and white cover. I saw one on ebay (a reproduction) not too long ago.
