water distribution tube for 288/327
Home away from home
Home away from home

David Grubbs
Regrettably I've gotten out of the Packard business, but while looking for some other items in the garage today, I found a very nice water distribution tube for a 51-54 288 or 327 engine, and possibly the 47-50 engines as well. Obviously I don't need it now. If anyone needs it, please contact me. Last time I checked, the going price was $80. How about $60 plus shipping?

A listing for a 52 200 (but the grille is from a 300?) from my part of the world - Great Falls MT. Just happened to see it today. Hope someone can rescue it.

Kev is correct - there are usually one or two large slot screws holding the plate in place, but occasionally mechanics will change them out.

After cleaning out the garage, I found some items left in the Packard bin. I'll list the items; if anyone is interested, please let me know. Prices are really cheap - I need the space! Shipping is whatever UPS charges me.

1. rebuilt Autolite starter with the push botton type solenoid. It has been converted to 12 volt. The tag says MAW 4024, and PS 1794 is stamped on the body.
$35. I paid about $80 for the rebuild.

2. Delco Remy generator, M 82749-K16. Worked when I pulled it off the car and put it on the shelf. $15

3. AC fuel pump, single action - clean, but will need rebuilding
AC fuel pump, dual action - clean, but will need rebuilding
Artex fuel pump, dual action ditto. Simlar to the AC, but with a slightly different head. $5 for each

Two water pumps - I think that these are the 48-50 versions. One was rebuilt, and the other is clean and spins easily. Both have the pulleys with the - interesting is that one of the pulleys is larger than the other. $15 for the black one, $8 for the other

One four blade fan. Free with either water pump, or $3

Two add on oil filters. One is missing the hollow top bolt. $12 each

Valve covers. $6 for the pair
Back up light for a 51-54 - $4
rear dome light for a 48-50 - $2
51-4 radio delete plate. Good chrome - $4

found another 50 Packard in MT
Home away from home
Home away from home

David Grubbs
At our annual swap meet and auction in Billings MT last week, this 50 Packard went across the block, but didn't sell. It is an interesting car - it's the base model, but has an Electromagnetic cluch, radio, heater, overdrive and exterior sun visor. It was restored a number of years ago. The burgundy paint is decent, but needs buffing out. The black top color scheme isn't correct, but it looks good. The rubber floor mats are still in very good shape, and the upholstery is acceptable, but not original. The chrome is in very good shape, and I didn't see any dents - didn't see any rust in the fenders or rocker panels. The trunk is equally clean.

I drove the car in and out of the auction building and it ran quiet and smooth, with no smoke. However, it leaked antifreeze badly - either a bad water pump and/or hoses. The owner wasn't at the auction; I think they live several hundred miles from Billings. The car is still at the clubhouse barn, stored inside. If any one is interested in it, I'll track down the owner and get them it touch with you. I can also go out to the clubhouse and get more photos and make a more than three minutes inspection.

Bill - I have a lens from the junior series. It is convex, with white numbers silkscreened on it, and a notch in the side for the winder knob. Let me know if you might could use it.

Terrell Machine in DeLeon Texas is another good source for repair kits for the fuel pumps. The kits are not difficult to install, but it's a good idea to take photos as you disassemble the unit.

here are some photos I took yesterday. The body, frame and fenders are all on dollies for repairs and painting. The trunk lid is missing as the body was modified during WWII to put in a wooden bed, so it would be a farm vehicle and get more gas ration stamps.

So Kenny needs a lid, hinges, latch and latch mechanism if anyone has a lead on some. Photos of similar models would help a lot if anyone has any. You can contact me and I'll contact Kenny. He doesn't believe in computers!

Too bad Jim Hollingsworth isn't with us anymore. He was "Mr. 1940 Packard". I still have an autographed copy of his book on the 40 Packards.
