1940 Packard 180 petronix

has anyone here installed a Petronix on a 356 straight-eight were you able to use the stock coil? were there any other issues? I had a petronix unit installed on my car with a petronix coil; it ran fine but I noticed on the way home after filling my tank (it was on E) my gas gauge my oil pressure gauge stopped working so I am wondering what happened? Oddly enough the ammeter gauge worked properly.

the total for the swap the kit the tranny came to about $4000 about $1000 more than my last Ultramatic job and like I said no issues since in my opinion worth the extra money (and the overtime I put in to have it done!).Had the car AAA there drove it home when it was done I was amazed at much much get up and go it had and the gas mileage well I never received more than 14 or 15 mi per gallon after the conversion I drove to the Hershey car show from my home and only used a quarter tank of gas! The four grand covered the complete job.

I want to pass this piece of advice to you-I own a 1955 Packard 400 I bought in 2003 after having four failures in rebuilt ultramatics, I finally got smart. I contacted Bendtsens transmission adapters and ordered their conversion kit and also ordered a GM 700r automatic transmission. A good shop across the river from my home in Philadelphia Pa did the job and when I picked up the car all I could say is WOW! Way more performance way better gas mileage and since I had the job done in 2015 my car has been trouble-free.

I remember a few years ago there was a website called 1956packardpanther.com about a Panther project and it also featured a 1956 Packard Executive built by a man named Paul who I believe lives in Las Vegas. Anyone know what become of the Panther project or the Executive?

I am glad I purchased the 3 groove pulley for my 55 400 when I did now $300 doesn't seem like a bad price.

You know I wish the government would do its job and investigate all these scammers and hackers and the like I am getting so tired of hearing of friends emails getting hacked I also had my email hacked last year those endless phone calls offering AUTO WARRANTY REPAIR. These are CRIMES and they need to be prosecuted!
