@64avanti: One or two lifters are only noisy. In any case, I have to remove the engine because there is a leak at the read crankshaft bearing. And anything must be check on this engine, including lifters!

@ewrecks: Thanks for this address list! I used to order parts from the USA, because I own a 1965 Mustang and a 1937 Ford street rod too. I will ask Kanter to quote breaks and engine rebuild kit.

@Let the ride decide: It's an automatic transmission with the "button" shift. I don't know why, but it was removed and replaced with a standard column shift. But I have it in the trunk!
Regarding the frame, I'm not sur it has this modification. I will check and take a picture. It's look more like a home made trailer hitch!

Thanks
Dave.

Yes we are. This goes to a 56 carib.

I put lubriplate molly tacky in mine. It was for CV joints.

Thing is a wasted good lubriplate added some to it. Oil.

But going to clean all of that out.

The joint looks good.. But getting that black oil out might show other things.

That oil was flinging out .. All over rear u joint...

I'm set on a stick shift Custom, so it seems wiser to keep waiting for a 22nd Series. Thanks!

For Ultramatic the front joint would be a ball and trunnion which would originally have used a heavy fibre grease. I don't know what the best modern replacement grease would be, many I know use a premium wheel bearing grease and seem to have no problems. Take good care of that joint, for the senior cars with Ultramatic replacements are close to extinct.

It is quite possible, but you will need a 22nd series Custom Eight parts car. There are so many parts that are different from a Super or Eight that these models will not suffice. The longer steering column is just one example.

The audience for the 23d series Customs is probably just as small now as it was then. I'm guessing it won't matter for most buyers.

I use a Motive Products pressure bleeder. I got a standard brass fitting for the pump side and machined another brass fitting to seal the master cylinder. Then just connect the two with some extra hose. It works a lot better than vacuum bleeders, those are mostly junk unless you buy very high end equipment meant for shops.

Did you find it yet? My father painted his 48 station sedan with the Egyptian Sand. Somewhere we might still have a partial can and I could get the code off of it.

I’ve used a pressure bleeder on a more modern foreign car. The bleeder screwed onto the fluid reservoir in place of the cap.
What kind of pressure bleeder do you use on a 48 Packard?
