PACKARD SERVICE PARTS LIST 1941-1942

I am missing a page or two of my parts manual. The first page I have is Roman Numeral I and starts with Engine (Cont'd).
Could anyone that has the manual perhaps duplicate these missing pages for me? Or do you know where I could purchase them as perhaps someone has duplicated this whole manual. Thanks so much ~~

Re: 1949 Station Wagon VIN ID #

Just can't stay away

I find the info on the '49 Station Wagon very difficult to find. In two price guides I have, they don't even list a Station Wagon. Also in 1949 they produced both the 22nd Series & the 23rd Series. All so confusing. This car never had a ID tag on the cowl like the 1942. Not sure it even had a VIN number. What series is this auto? Is it a 2301 or what?

I am wondering how many '49 Station Wagons are in existence today, since only 472 were produced in '49. Have one to sell.

1949 Station Wagon VIN ID #
#4
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

auto.nut
I have a 1949 Station Wagon that I have owned for about 30 years and did not get around to restoring it. But now I cannot find the title. The state of WA only keeps title info for 5 or 7 years and then they delete it from their records. Ya that's really nice isn't it.
Anyway I lost the title, & could not find a VIN number and could only find a number on the cowl which is 805810. What kind of ID# is that? I gave them that number and they could not find it anywhere in their records. Thus they say I have to trailer the auto to the WA State Patrol, have to make an appointment and pay $65 etc and then wait three years to get a valid title. The only thing they do is to verify the VIN# I believe. If they cannot find one, then what? Now does that make any sense? I am a 91 year old person and have paid state licenses and other stuff for 66 years and this is how they treat you. Why do they purge their records after 5 years? My question is which ID number would the state of WA use to identify the automobile?? When I gave them the 805810 number that was perhaps the wrong number. But if not available anywhere in there records anymore it wouldn't make any difference if I had the correct number anyway.
Any help would be appreciated. Lee

MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP REPAIR
#5
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

auto.nut
The fuel pump gave up on my '48 Packard and in taking it apart I see where the diaphragm has a crack in it etc. But I am concerned in replacing the diaphragm with an older type replacement which will deteriorate with our stupid alcohol fuel.
I don't know why they don't get rid of it, because it is nothing but problems.
Are there any replacement diaphragms or diaphragm material that one could make one out of, that will work with this damn alcohol fuel??? This alcohol fuel is very destructive to our older vehicles. I don't know why there is not more of a backlash against this fuel. You can't leave it in any engine for any length of time and if you do, you will have costly repairs. Not true with our previous non-alcohol fuel.

No reply on the Headlight & Inst Panel screw-in bezels that hold the switches to the instrument panel. Are there none out there?

'42 Packard 160 headlight & Instruments Light Bezels

Does anyone know of anyone having any decent headlight or instrument light bezels that hold them in place? Mine are all messed up by a previous owner or owners and really need to find some better ones. Mine are separating(outside from the inside) because the trim has all broken loose and separated.
Still working on the short I have. Everything points to the speedometer pointer light. Sure hate this kind of troubleshooting!!!!

Re: 1942 "160" turn signal & brake wiring problem??

HOWARD surely someone must have a better wiring diagram than the A.E.A. one shown. As you say the quality is so bad that the diagram is almost unusable. Do you have any idea of where I might be able to download a better quality drawing?? Sure could use it. Lee
Have ordered some LED lights to replace the rear turn signals etc. I will let you know how things turn out. Still have a short in the INST PNL SWITCH CIRCUIT, but will work on that after I get the turn signals to work properly.

Or maybe I was wrong, wires #17 is perhaps the wires that are for front lighting on the first notch of the lighting switch. And if that is true, why don't I see wires #17 going to the back running lights? The back running lights should be lit when on the first notch of the light switch. The manual even states that. Is there another different power feed from the light switch with a different number? There is a Wire 9A. Sure wish they had a description somewhere to indicate what the wire number's function is.
