Recently purchased weatherstrip door kit for 1955 Caribbean. It came with no instructions for installation. Would like to have an installation diagram / manual.

Thank you,

Hi Everybody,

I've been unsuccessfully trying to find left and right side moldings for 1955 Packard Caribbean windshield. I have all other parts for convertible, but sides are for the hardtop. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Val.

Re: 1955 Packard Caribbean Timing chain replacement manual
#7

So, after the chain was replaced and obviously, fuel pump (BTW, it has new rubber diaphragm and I can use regular gas, right?), a loss of power was noticed. These are the results of compression test:
LEFT BANK
1 - 110
3 - 105
5 - 110
7 - 110
RIGHT BANK
2 - 50
4 - 75
6 - 75
8 - 55

Before the compression test the car was driven around 2mi after chain and pump replacement.

Prior to the chain change, the engine was cranked frequently, before the problem was found. All this time oil pump didn't work and there was no oil pressure. Can the problem be in hydraulic tappets in the right bank, since they are lubricated after the left bank?

I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions... Big hope is not to take the head off...

Thank you!

Val.

That is exactly what happened, Ross! No cotter pin and the lever broke the chain.

Thank you, Howard!

Yes, I don't think its the chain. So far we took off valve cover and when cranking the engine, none of the valve lifters move. Doesn't look like its a broken camshaft, since no lifters are moving. Tomorrow we are opening the timing chain cover and see if anything got sheered...

Thank you for your help and quick response!

Val.
