Try the model information tab and search the pictures etc for 22nd Deluxes.

There's some other considerations. It's often difficult to lean over and set the points accurately on some of these fat fendered cars. The over 50 set and bad backs know well.
If it has the window style cap and you can put the hexnut points in, and use the flexdriver and dwell meter it's a little easier but that came later. The Packard L8 is on the side so it's not as bad as a rear mount (GM). Only thing Frod got right.
I put Pertronix on the '58 Cad because I was changing to 3x2 in the overhaul and the points access gets worse. Some people swear by these, some at, so it's got a wide following. There are other ways to do it. Personal choice mostly. I think a lot of the "problems" were self induced by people not knowing what they're doing. Once bitten twice shy. But as far as the technolog goes, the electronic is far better for life and power. Otherwise, we'd still be using points. Points eventually burn and oxidize plus wear and tear on the follower cam. Electronic fails catastrophically, usually if a spike of some sort fries the circuit board, where as the points deteriorate over time => gives some warning, if you're attuned to them. I don't share the concern about the alternator but most of the 6+ cars are generator/VR anyway? (not relevant?)

Has leads for two way rotation, so could be for power antennas, seats, windows, etc. Fans were usually driven from a rheostat/stepper instead of two wire(speed). They look similar size to the one on my cadillac's power antenna but wiring is different.
Can't make out the numbers in the photo, but could be run down to find out. There were only a few period small motor makers.
You can look on the wiring diagrams and look for a motor w/ orange/green/black wires.
As best as I can recall, that's not a period connector on the orange wire, it's "inline" type - much later and typical of trailers, RVs, etc.

If you go to the model information tab and check out the 22nd, I think you'll find that info. I know I looked it up for 23s. But don't recall which source its in.

Try another tire store(s).
I had that issue on my P/U once. the tire place put in too long stems with a set of tires, all they had in stock. I got them changed at another tire shop later.
I'm not sure what size the P rims take. Haven't dealt with that one as there's different styles, the rubber pop-in and the steel threaded. Mine were OK.

Newbie, that's a little self defeatist, that fossil fuels will eventually come to an end. The globalists are missing the importance of thermodynamics in their push for electric everything. It could actually cause much more energy to be released into the environment.
Think about this: The news reporter was covering the "heat" wave (misnomer) and said that all these affected people will need A/C due to climate change and we'll have to increase capacity of the grid. A/C causes the energy inside to be released outside and it has to go at a higher temperture to flow out, plus the energy to move it. So it in effect they'd be raising the outside temperature even more to be "cool" inside. When you multiply that by billions you see where the problem lies, not in CO2 but energy release, consumption, and efficiency not to mention waste. The climate is doing exactly what it's supposed to, the number of and energy consumption by people is what changed.

I was looking at an upcoming auction catalog and ran across this rare item. If you're in need or collecting, it's the Jack Slaymaker collection auction being held by VanDerBrink auctions in about 2 weeks. Don't see P NOS very often.

Re: oil pump priming postwar 327/288

"spin the motor some" was stated.
The oil light should go out, if it's pumping - he could not verify that, nor observe oil flow? Plus the grease where it didn't belong makes one wonder what's going on?
Sounds a lot like not pumping or turning fast enough or long enough. PD(gear) only pumps a small volume per revolution. Not enough revolutions, not enough oil flow.
Agree grease could've got in the PRV causing malfunction. I would still expect some flow with the PRV open?
One can rig a temporary light or DVM to the oil PS and observe if it's goes "on" from inside the engine bay. Or get some help.

I'm not sure you can get enough speed to create oil pressure without some mechanical means like a drill that's commonly used to prime oil systems down the dist. hole.
If you did dislodge a "bunch of grease" into the galleys, that could also be your bane.

Re: Packard performance

I think the Packard trademarks are specific to design of the font, etc. Drawings have to be submitted in the application.
So long as that's not infringed they're free to call themselves packard anything, unless someone else holds their choice. Those holding the trademarks also have to keep them current. They can be cancelled for non-use.

You'd have to look up if the goddess was trademarked, I never got that far in my dealings. I had to get permission from PAC to use the logo on some repro I was anticipating.
I don't recall seeing any reference to packard "performance" trademark in the motorcar lit.
Most companies have legal assistance to understand if they can use the logo and trademark it for themselves. When you trademark you also give the use, and that can be different with the same logo. eg;Packard motors cars v Packard consultants.
