Yes, I do see now that the striker should be adjusted after the hinges are set, thanks for your tip.,

I think you are right. As I try to fit. It is obvious the wood will have to be worked on, thanks for your input.

48 Packard station sedan door installation

I am having trouble installing the doors. I have hung the doors and trying to level up and fit properly at the center panel body strip. The wood window trims seem to bottom out at the roof gutters . Is it possible that the wood window trim is installed after the doors are hung. That way, there is possible to do some wood filing and fitting? Also is it correct to set the doors and fit at the hinges and then install the door striker plates.
The station sedan doors are only different from sedan doors where the wood door panels are installed.

Thanks,
I did clean out the oil pickup
I will double check my oil filter piping
Probably right, the engine has low compression,
How much pressure should I have to run the engine?

Oil pressure lubricating system

288 cu in. 1948 engine. Is there a way to clean out the oil pressure lubricsting system.
I had the engine running last year briefly. I saw no oil pressure so I shut it down. I finally got a little pressure 4-5# on turning over the engine. I still have problems getting it running. I’m ready to tackle the job,again I stopped for several months because of frustrations.

I did attach my gauge to the gallery plug hole on the RH side. Without it attached oil flowed. With the gage connected I got nothing coming through
I'm running out of options. Yes, I know vintage auto very well. Terry Jarvis lives close by. I see him regularly. It was too bad they closed. I got lots of stuff from them

My Gage is a cheap add on gage from Napa. It connects with a clear 1/16" plastic tubing.
I removed the whole thing this morning. Turned the engine and got oil coming out . Not real strong, pulsating an pumping. I hooked up 1 more time and it will not pump oil through up 10". I didn't see any oil in the tubing. But the pump is working.
Maybe a better gage in-line type
At the original sending unit port, there are 2 ports. about 4" apart
Is the upper port the pressure line, maybe I have it backwards.
I look at the filter system in the service tech sheet. Is that a tee fitting with the sending unit on it? I don't have the jumper tube. I guess I don't understand the picture. I will try your suggestion

I did what JW advised. I added grease to the pump gears, it was dry. I added oil to the oil fill line at the oil filter inlet. I opened a plug on the block. Oil did come out of the plug while the engine was cranking. as he suggested. Still no oil pressure at the gauge, but I know the pump is moving oil. Interesting that 2 of you mentioned the odd oil piping that I did. I too think that that is the problem. I installed that from a sketch I made from another car. Obviously I made a mistake. I found a factory drawing in a service technical sheet. Tomorrow I will continue my quest of getting this engine running. Thank you all for your help, I appreciate it very much.

Do you mean to put oil in the fill line to the filter, disconnect it at the filter and fill it there ? Pack the oil pump gears with any type grease? Would it be wise to put a little oil in each cylinder? A couple squeezes., I did that when I did get start it up to get it running.
