In process of replacing the trunk pan of my 39 Six. Any words of wisdom or suggestions would be much appreciated. This is a flat pan replacement, does not go up any sides
Thanks !

Turned out to be a very simple fix. Drilled out 3 rivets sandwiching the assembly top & bottom. Look at photos, rheostat was cruddy and pick up contact slightly corroded. Cleaned both with a good quality contact cleaner, and since I did not have any flat rivets ( and the surface mates with the top of the tank) sweat soldered the two plates together in 4 places. Seems to work great on bench now with ohmmeter

Having difficulty loading images, both under 25K jpgs

1939 Packard Fuel Tank sender

Anyone have any experience with repairing a sending unit? Became intermittent, definitely the sender. Have tank and sender out of car for different reason. Put ohm meter on ground flange and sensor output, can watch resistance bounce, frequently to 0 ohms

Don't see an "easy" easy to open it up

Have feelers out to a couple places for quote to repair, would entertain a new one if I could find it reasonably priced

Has the switch you mentioned first, a simple N.O. DPST.
Simple to service, just be cautious of bending the tabs and be certain to unsolder the top contact from the case before opening

Many thanks to you for all the explanation of this OD. Learning a lot, my plan is to take all this info and the two manuals I have and generate a logical schematic.
OD works, did have that problem where it didn't and w/o schematics, plodded through the wires and switches and found the OD switch wasn't working, took it apart (CAUTION to anyone that tries, the 4 metal tabs break easily and the contact near the top is soldered in, se need to be unsoldered before opening). I found a dirty contact and carefully burnished it. Then I found the relay wasn't working and took it apart. at one time, it had a lot of water and everything was corroded. Cleaned it up and all works fine now

Certainly you guys are all providing truthful information, just trying to figure out exactly what I have here and how it works.
The part of the puzzle that is missing is how does the solenoid get its hold in power

OK, I agree with most of what you are saying here.

If what you state is accurate, how does the hold-in coil get energized? Per the manual, the hold in coil is used to hold the pawl engaged in the secondary gear plate. Interesting, a few pages later, the manual states that the Hold-In coil is energized ONLY while moving the solenoid pawl in to the stationary gear plate. The purpose of the pull in coil is to assist the hold-in coil while the solenoid is engaging.
Pull in circuit OPENS when the solenoid plunger has traveled the distance and opens a set of contacts internally

The solenoid spring pulls the plunger (hence pawl) out, disengaging the OD

Per the manuals, the OD kicks in when torque on the OD is momentarily removed from the engine when letting off on the accelerator

So still getting back to my initial quandary, what activates the pull in / hold in solenoid initially?
