I used to see Bill Mitchell's Caribbean frequently at the Perrysburg meet, but don't recall all those decals as shown in this photo.

Try disconnecting the vacuum advance line at the carb and plugging the port.

That's OK, hph. You and BDeB provided the same part number, and I wasn't sure if there was a factory typo somewhere.

I'm confused. Since part numbers are generally issued in numeric sequence, it doesn't make sense that a lower number would replace a higher one. However, SC Vol. 29 No. 7 shows 474275 as the new gear for 55.

Casting numbers are not necessarily the same as a finished good whether for production or service.

You would need to compare casting numbers between the different parts. Then, different part number could be assigned due to a different grind or finish.

Member PackardV8 and I had a discussion about this, several years ago, WRT to the cast interior door top trim piece. The part on his Exec hardttop was painted, while the same part on my Caribbean H/T was chrome-plated. Yet, both had the same casting number.

OE KR Wilson gauge sets come up from time to time, but the pan spacer seems to be hard to find.

There was also Snap On set, in a metal box, for multi-makes, including Packard, but you have to make sure all the adapters are still there.

IIRC, Mr. Pushbutton built his own version of this.

When it comes to V8 Caribbeans, underseat heater equipment was standard for 55th only. Though initially offered as standard for 56th, it was later withdrawn. I don't know the whole story, but crunch has one with, IIRC.

Correct, but you need not have removed the trim to do that.

Then, I would recommend a thin coat of a thick lubricant of Lubriplate or equivalent white grease on the rod.
