54 Packard Pacific | Carter WCFB 2103S vs 2112S

Thank you for the great information DP. My 359 has an aluminum head. When accelerating from 45mph to 55mph there is a slight knocking and pinging. I wonder if this is the lower secondary fuel flow not keeping me out of detonation jail? Unless I'm confusing knocking and pinging with hydraulic lifter ticking.

I just noticed that the tag on my Carter WCFB looks like it shows 2103S and not 2112S. Not sure why I don't have the 2112S in there. It is rebuilt. Seems the difference between the two is the sizes of the Body flange assembly, Low speed jet tube, Idle port, Idle port opening, Set Idle adjustment screw, Metering rod jet, Accelerating pump and Choke. All works well. Should I care? Thoughts are welcome.

I have a Carter WCFB 2112S 4 barrel. It has a 4 7/32 to 5 1/8 adapter for the air horn. I would love to know which brand new Edelbrock/carter afb 4 barrel would be the most compatible though. I wonder if anyone has every done any homework on that. My tv cable/linkage is quite unique though due to the GM 700R4.

I have a tiny oil drip under the car. The oil pump looks ok. Oil pan drain looks ok but there is one nut underneath between the engine rear and trans that has the drip? Is this an issue with with the rear main rope seal? Thought are welcome.

54 Packard Pacific / Hayes engine fans / 4-5-6 blade
#5
Just can't stay away

I was trying to figure out if a 6 blade 55/56 fan with a/c #465574 would be compatible on a 359 L8 with a/c fan #465538 regarding dimensions and bolt pattern. This was in addition to comparing a 1947 5-blade and trying to figure out what makes the service counselor heavy duty fan #426696 so special. I was also trying match all the fans to something flex-a-lite might have with a spacer. Thought are welcome.

54 Packard Pacific / Brakelighter third brake light / wiring
#6

Everything is all set. Very easy. Quick and fast with no issues. T-tap into the left rear brown wire (22 gauge ) and T-tap into the right rear yellow wire. No need for any additional diodes. I used the suction cups with slant window brackets. There is an option to just use 3M adhesive pads. Brake lights and turn signals all work on the third light. Strangely, my in-line auxiliary 6V Airtex electric fuel pump stopped working. Very dubious.

Stay tuned on the diodes. Quick question. I have attached 2 pictures of the rear light wiring. One is left and one is right. You can clearly see the brown wire and the yellow wire. And the green wire to the back up light which does not work. If you look closely you will see an errant bulb with an old plug just hanging there and there appears to jumpers from the outer lights to the inner lights with a newer looking plug on the inner lights. The turn signals actually flash all of the rear lights not just the outer. I'm not sure about the brake lights. The regular lights when on illuminate all the bulbs. Is this normal looking for a 54 Pack?

I have a 6 volt Optima battery in my 54 with a Woody's Customs fugazy box. I use the original hold down (I think) and tray.
