I had a similar issue when doing mine. when assembling it I couldn't get it to seat tight. so I took a piece of hardwood, drilled a 15/16" hole 3 " deep, cut out the top portion, place a hardened washer on top, this had a portion of it cut out to fit around the copper pipe. then I place a 3/4" socket on top and with a clamp pulled it snug before bending the tabs down. seemed to work, hopefully the photos attached

Glad to hear you(&your Packard😁)are safe. Been a tough time in BC the last while, what with all the wildfires and now the flooding.
Continue to be safe

Thanks Owen_Dyneto. I will eventually reach out to them, just thought I would toss the request out to the forum first. In the hopes someone had 1 laying around.

Hi Riki
How did your vent window fix work out?
What type of epoxy glue? did you use

Now that I know the transmission and other system works, it was time to pull everything out for rebuilding. Found a somewhat local engine builder that has worked on the Packard V8's before, and a 70 year old transmission builder to put a kit in the Twin Ultramatic. I removed 12 lbs. of dirt, gravel and oil from the transmission. Any tips or suggestions/cautions I should pass on to these gentlemen? Both will be getting copies of the relevant service manual section.

The pressure switch on the Ultramatic? is there a test that can be performed to check if it works? The wires from the switch were previously tied together and bypassed the pressure switch. Or just look for a replacement?(here's hoping there out there)

Also does anyone perhaps have a fix for the vent window bracket? both sides have large cracks. also on the drivers side the window channel has become detached from the frame. this photo is of one I dismantled. can it be screws or riveted? Or will they interfer?
