I've been informed just the 51-54 are 5 amp.

Thanks Howard, I do see a bolt sticking out with a nut on it above the clock.

I took Howard's approach, and drilled out the old wires in the base, after several attempts I was able to get the solder to hold and it has good continuity at each wire to the terminals. My question is: The unit was hanging loose behind the dash. There is a steel insulated mounting bracket attached. Where does this unit attach to? Any ideas. I can't seem to find an screw hole to mount it to.

Thanks; Dave O

Spark plug wire set

Would anyone like to suggest a good spark plug wire set for a 1950 327. I do not want period correct solid core, but wires made from modern materials. I will be changing it to electronic ignition soon.

Thanks Dave O

Thanks Howard; And yes, it was the map lights/courtesy lights, you have an unbelievable memory sir. It seems to me I remember I guy on another Packard club site totally rebuilding a 49 and using the schematic from this site, I'll do some more searching, I think he was steelman, tinman, or something like that.

Thanks Howard, you have put my mind at ease. I'll go back to not questioning, just do it like it shows attitude.

Packard Wiring Diagram

Hi; I am in the process of a full rewire of my 23rd series super eight. Unfortunately this car has had it's original wires cut and spliced 100 times all over with apparently all they had which was 16 gauge red and black wire. So am using the wiring schematic found on this site. I had it blown up so I can see it better. My question is has anyone used this schematic to a full rewire? Have they found it to be accurate? I am certainly no wiring expert, by a long shot. I am just doing it exactly the way the schematic shows. However I see some things that make no sense to me.

Like running a wire from one side of the car to the other, and back again instead of splicing it in two directions, Lord knows they didn't seam to worry about all the other splices.

I would think so; you wouldn't want all the metal particales getting into your bearings.

Not really; What you see is the wire going in, not down a little farther where it is crimped solid. To reuse unit I need to pull the copper terminals out, open the crimp,clean it out, insert the new wires and re-crimp. The re-insert the pins.

Its really not a big deal to just replace it for $3.60 its just I like to reuse as much as possible.

Hello to all. During my rewiring of my 1950 Packard, I need to get the new wires into to Flasher base. It is a 3 pin unit.I believe there is a way to push the pins out for rewiring but I'm not sure how to unlock them. Does anyone know how?
