Here are some pictures. Probably do have to reorient. That bowl gasket was designed to be removed and cleaned periodically, maybe it will survive. Should be checked anyhow. Who knows what you have down there.

That fuel pump looks like it has been oriented incorrectly, the fuel inlet and outlet should be perpendicular to where it bolts onto the engine. Probably whoever took it off and perhaps put new gaskets in it rotated the bottom with respect to the mid-section, looks like something similar on the top vacuum section.

The bottom section is the fuel section. The top section is the vacuum section. You don't need to worry about the vacuum section right now, but later it would help run the windshield wipers. There are two connetions at the top for vacuum, they aren't labeled, but after you get things started you can tell which end sucks, then you can use that knowledge to hook up the vacuum lines correctly, second step.

You should take the bottom "bowl" off and clean out whatever is in there.

In the picture, the end with the weird cylinder/bulb, that is the outlet. The bulb was supposed to reduce pulsations to the carburetor. Some people leave it off but it does no harm. Opposite to that is the fuel inlet.

Has anyone installed shoulder belts in a 1951-56 Packard? How did that turn out?

I think everyone should calm down a bit. I think we all appreciate everyone's contributions to keeping Packards on the road and our own mutual enjoyment of them.

I jokingly refer to the local home-improvement store as Home-Despot. Doesn't mean I don't shop there some times. Same with Partial-Foods. Those are not necessarily political statements, they are more meant to be funny, and at the same time acknowledge the rather large influence those particular companies have on the local retail landscape.

Anyhow, thank you all for your help in working through everyone's particular problems in Packard-land. We are all working on nearly 70+ year-old cars from an automaker that hasn't existed in just as long, good to keep things lighthearted - it's a hobby, after all.

Assuming the coil is good and the points are ok - good chance!

In my car, which granted is a 1953 327 with a 4 barrel, coming right near there is the hard vacuum line that goes to the vacuum advance on the distributor. The line runs over the top of the engine. Maybe that? The other would be a vacuum line to the windshield washers, typically involving a line also to the vacuum side of a dual action fuel pump as sn assist. Also a possibility.
