Re: Changing '55 to Negative Ground System

Everything will work just fine except the ammeter will read backwards. All other things "worried" about are non-events. Back in the day many 55's were inadvertently switched to neg ground when the battery was replaced by mechanics not in the know.

All 39 Six through v-12 have movable shutters, the 40-41's that Max Merritt has REPRODUCED are fixed shutters, completely different.

Re: How do you stabilize original 56 paint?

There are many different options that you can try. There are many companies that make a patina preservers such as Eastwood basically it's a top coat that you put over the paint to try to encapsulate the checking and cracking areas. Another option is repainting the trunk and blending it into the original paint. There are paint shops that do still mix lacquer such as Hibernia auto restoration.

unfortunately any which way you look at it eventually you probably are going to have to repaint it. It is very difficult to reduce or stop the checking.

Thanks

Re: '55 engine back to life! Mostly worked...

If pressure was low before rebuild you should have diagnosed cause upon disassembly, did not see any conclusions. Currently you have low oil pressure, what was reading at 1500 rpm. Did you check with mechanical gauge??


In our shop we do not take the precautions you have and never had any engine failures/problems. We lube all engine parts with an oil/STP mixture as assembled, tappets/cam brushed with cam break-in fluid, just use regular oil for first 30 minutes then drain and replace examining used oil for metal particles, fuel system not flushed unless car has been sitting for years or evidence of sediment, carb not primed.


Engine cranked with starter and ususally fires up within 3-4 revolutions. After 10-15 seconds the lifters are full and engine runs silently. IF THERE IS ANY CONSTANT OR LOUD/NOTICEABLE NOISE THE ENGINE IS SHUT DOWN AND DIAGNOSED.



The noise you have is an indication of a problem, it may be the torque converter nuts are loose on the front side of the flywheel, elusive sound in the area you describe. But it may be lifter to cam noise, did you check that lifters rotate freely in lifter bores, this causes almost immediate lifter/cam failure.

Re: opinions as to value of this '39 Packard Coupe

The vehicle is a 1288/ Business Coupe which was not equipped with jump seats, the"Coupe" was. The car has a deluxe hood ornament, chrome wheel discs (hubcap extenders) and trim rings which seem to be the ribbed Ford style, a dash clock. Pretty well accessorized for a Business Coupe which was the least costly Packard. NO radio, no heater showing but may be there.

Fred and Dan sold a similar one in a 120 7 years ago for $18K,
