Re: Engine will not turn over

Thanks for the good information. It seems odd I can turn it over but the starter cannot
The battery 6 volt is being checked now. It is only showing about 250 CCA fully charged should be close to 900. Maybe a dead cell, although it was new 2 years ago. What battery is common to use for my engine ? 288 cu in. My cables are 1/0 .
If the battery is fully charged and the starter is good and the engine can be turned by hand it has got to be an internal problem??
What can I see from removing the pan
I just keep hoping not to pull the engine, i guess,
Thanks all,
Mike

The starter was rebuilt by a reliable company here is Seattle. They did a complete check out again and a bench test with a load. It was found to be working fine.
I out it back in and tried again. Bothe new 6 volt battery and then 12 v. Plugs out. Both times only only clicks.
I can turn the flywheel ring gear with a pry bar.
When I turn with pry I can move about 2-3 teeth at a time. . However turn to the right ( IEE from back) no noise, turn to the left a definite click,click,click sound.but not from the starter, but more from the main bearing area.

I have had problems getting the engine to turn over. Last fall it got water into #7,8 cylinder exactly how not sure. The engine was turning over with starter motor but eventually stopped completely, I removed head and had water in the cylinder. Since then i cleaned out cylinder 7, 8
Polished up , honed and cleaned as best I couldI could turn engine with prying the ring gear I checked all cylinders , polished and honed. It would turn the engine quite easily with the pry. I re assembled with new head gasket. Using remote starter and 6 volt battery in only turned over 4-5 rotations. I used 12 volt battery it spun engine maybe 10 seconds and seized up and the starter only clicked. Now nothing moves. I am lost as to why the 12v would not crank it

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.

Re: Oil pressure lubricating system

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?

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
