Re: 56 Packard fuel sending unit

I use the word plastic generically
as you can see Polypropylene is OK

that is the site I got my info from
I did do some fast net search and found a mixed
bag of answers.

I will not say your wrong and I'm right
but will I take a chance... I'll go with the plastic
Although the float in my Packard was only 20 years
old, and it did sit for many years, still I have never
seen a float totally destroyed like mine was

56 Packard fuel sending unit

I'll get this right sometime.
I bought a plastic float on Ebay for the
sending unit, as Alcohol in the gas destroyed the brass
float
Ebay site
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mopar-Chrysle ... ksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

The (Autocity part) has a 57 TBird sending unit
F34SU $45.00 And they say " fits 56 Packard"

I did not know that Alcohol and brass are no compatible
now I do

I cleaned and repaired the two sending units I have
If you do buy a float $8, you need to bend the
hoop on the resistance arm
which is easy, and plastic is compatible with Alcohol

PS:
I can not upload a picture yet, too large.

Hi
It looks great, I also looks like a 1 piece
except for those seems. Why are they there.
You used the "cut pile" did you buy a kit
or had them made locally?
which type of material did you use Nylon, 80/20 etc:?

I did not see it mentioned I might have missed it
but a "bad' head gasket could be the cause.

Thanks for the info on the PS

The idea for the Front Disc came from
Paul I believe. It has been a few years
since I read about it. It is or was posted on
here..
total cost is abut $450
That was for the F100\150 spindles
new King pins, I bought new calipers, pads
bearings.

Power steering pump
#9
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Hello All
Finally finished some of the roof work on my house
and now time to get some of the cars back on the road
I converted my 56. "400" to disc brakes using
the 79 F150 setup
Now I'm installing a Hydroboost from a 99-2004
Mustang cobra.
I pulled the power steering pump today
to get some nubers for a rebuild kit..
Turns out mine is made by Eaton. I just called them
and none of the numbers on the unit are listed..
Has anyone else found his pump to be an Eaton
the numbers are 10-20 a 5R and J29L

On the Hydro install. the Cobra unit has 3
ports, 1 high pressure in, 2 High pressure out
3. low pressure..
so No. 2 goes to the slave cylinder and
its return along with the return from the hydroboost
T together... back into the pump.
Yes The "T" is the way Ford does it on those Cobra's
Mustang that is...
I think with very little effort
the Hydroboost and MC will sit inboard of the air
pipe. Under the dash the current brake pedal is just
outside the steering column. I think the current
break pedal assembly can be moved off the fire wall
about 3" and can be used for the hydroboost.
the push rod on the hydroboost is a very short through
maybe 1" to 1.5" thats all...
I'll keep you informed..
Best

I Guess I really jumped the gun on the Hydroboost install
Did not look at the fire wall well enough, there is
no room to install the Hydroboost on the firewall
as it is. But I am going to bite the bullet and
remove the "air" intake tube and install the unit
there. I should be able to reuse the original pedal
assembly from. that location..
I know that Packard was a great car company, but
by 1955, they were just a name. Torsion bar suspension
was probably there best engineering idea, along
with the twin ultramatic which is a good trans if
built right.

Best

I have done a mock up of the Hyro this is what it looks like
right now

Apology
#10
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I bet you don't see that title. but

A few months back, I was contacted via this site for information
about my conversion to disc brakes.. I had not been in a great mood
and I had asked the Man to contact me directly so I did not have to
long into this site.. When he again contacted me through here
I told him to not contact me again...
That was not polite and was very rude. I want to Apologize to the
gentleman.

If he still needs assistance and can forgive me, I would be more
then happy to assist if I can.
I know that is lives in the Santa Monica area, and I live in Torrance..
Again I hope you will forgive me and except my Apology
