Thanks for all the responses. Will take everything in to consideration and report with any findings. Worst case the floor boards are coming up I guess.

One suggestion from a friend was that the vacuum booster on the clutch was weaker when warm because of less engine vacuum. I'm thinking that it is a boost of the mechanical linkage so theoretically it should work with zero boost.

Thanks for the responses. Just to clarify:

1. From first startup to about 10 minutes of running, easily shift in to any of the gears including first and reverse.

2. After 10-15 minutes of running, you CANNOT under any amount of cajoling get the gear shift to go into reverse or first. Second and third are still fine. Going to second and then to first will not help.

3. Turn the ignition off, at first you still can't get into first or reverse but with a little up and down it will allow it and then easily after.

4. Start it again warm and you are back to step above.

35 12 will not shift in to first and reverse when warm

Does anybody have any suggestions? Our 35 12 shifts great when cold, but once it warms up it will not shift in to first or reverse. The idle is very low so that is not it. If I turn the ignition off, at first it will still not shift, but after a few up and down strokes will then go in easily.

A suggestion was that the engine vacuum is lower when hot and the issue is related to the vacuum assist. This was adjusted using the attached manual snippet.

The starter relay on our 35 12 is borderline and really needs to be replaced. Could anybody point me in the direction of where I might be able to find a replacement?

thanks,

A.J.

Is Coker making a radial yet look appropriate? The problem for about the last 50 years is that the modern tires (even with the same numerical size) are larger than the original equipment. Look at any period photo and you will see a skinnier tire with a more aggressive tread. I still cringe everytime I see one of those Lester whitewalls on a prewar car.

Re: the RM listings. You always need to carefully read the auction descriptions as the auction house will never hide anything knowingly, but the words may not seem completely clear to somebody that doesn't know what they are doing.

The DV32 in the same sale is interesting because 15 years ago it was represented as an authentic Rollston bodied DV32. That sale came undone pretty quickly afterwards and the later descriptions (it sold at Milhouse and this sale) are much closer to the reality. Car was originally a standard in the white Lebaron coupe on an SV16 chassis which got an engine transplant and a haircut in the 1960s. All of which was documented in the regional CCCA magazine at the time.

Thanks. I recognize quite a few of the forum members so I shouldn't be a stranger to all. I have a thread going on the AACA forum regarding factory tachometers in Packards so this is interesting subject for me. I don't happen to own one right now but am surrounded by friends and family owners.

You guys probably already got this but "in the style of" always means reproduction when used in English auction descriptions.

Rollston did not make a open rear quarter victoria on a Packard to my knowledge, but there were 1 or 2 on Model J chassis. Design is similar to Judkins which has a fixed top.

If Packard did get such a body would love to see an early picture.
