Re: OIL PUMP PACKS IT IN?

First thought is that the second gauge also could be erratic, I have seen it happen.
If the motor is quiet, you could pull a valve cover and see if things are oiling correctly. Maybe dump a can of "motor honey" in while it is warm & running and watch the gauge.
It's always possible a chunk is caught in the pressure relief valve...
My compliments on taking your time and doing it right.
Best wishes!

Saw this one in person, Silver Spring, NV.

http://reno.craigslist.org/cto/4060997638.html

Good solid car but I think 3K would be more like it.
Some trim was off due to what looked like an old quicky repaint,car didn't look like it had been driven in some time. Dirty interior, motor, some minor perforation in the driver's floor but overall, straight & clean. Can't remember how clean the chrome was. Power windows. 5K would be an extremely generous offer.
Happy Hunting!

Would aftermarket front disk brakes fall into this category?
And the 56 rear end, is it a Dana 44, what Dana parts fit?
Also Jack, I would love to learn about the performance capabilities of the heads.

An old friend who has done a great deal of vending over the years had a nice collection of Packard paper for sale.
He is in poor health and can no longer travel & as he is computer impaired, I said I would solicit requests for him.
If there are things you are looking for, I will pass the requests on to him. Please include a number where you can be reached.There are things going back to the 20's.
Thanks!

Re: Frame /body interchange. 2 vs 4 door.

It looks like I am talking to the right guys.
I am seriously trying to avoid building me a Packard but it is an addiction that I fight,making the car that one wants.
My search has turned up all sorts of cool "opportunities" & perhaps I will end up with a builder or two, mix & match & sell what is left?? (rest assured guys, I am not one of those tasteless car assassins...
The market is full of great cars that need everything
though the economics will have you upside down in a car pretty fast.

Frame /body interchange. 2 vs 4 door.

Does anybody know if a 2 door & a 4 door clipper will swap frames? That is, could a good body be swapped onto great running gear. This goes for a 2/4 door Senior car too.
I suspect drive shafts or body mount issues could arise but it seems like the 2 & 4 doors shared wheel bases on both the Junior & Senior cars..

Re: Packard needed: 55 or 56 2 door.

Hey Ride, you assume correctly.

And Dave, that one needs a little more love that I can give it, I am afraid.
There is a '56 Exec on the MN Craig's list but it also needs more enthusiasm that I can muster. For 25K, I could build a pretty sweet 15K car though :)

Thanks Guys!

Packard needed: 55 or 56 2 door.

The Packard interest has been festering for some time & it is about time I did something about it.
Looking for a 55 or 56 2 door. I am never afraid to wrench but the car has to have very solid metal, paint & hopefully interior. The perfect car would be a 56 Exec but a 56 in general & a short car (Clipper) seem the most attractive to me. The car will get driven a lot.
Looking forward to it gentlemen!

Newbie here, Packard shopping.

I have been lurking the Packard sites for a while & this looks like the home I have been searching for. That is: Less Brass cars but people that drive Packards and are not afraid to "enhance" their cars.
My dream car is a '56 Exec but am looking at any & all 55&56 2 doors. The '56 seems the most attractive to me as they have the Dana & the Clippers have the taillights.
I had been hot for a 57-58 Pontiac but now it has to a Packard.
Please see my post in the tor sale section.
