Ok yea that looks just like my fuel filter , about 1/4 full ….. so 2 things
1) what fuel pump can I use ?
2) I have a outlet for 100% petroleum gasoline now , wonder if that would help ?

So as far as the fuel filter , it’s a replacement glass type . Should it be inverted (glass up ) or not ?
It’s just rough on the starter trying to get gas pumped back up to the carb . Maybe a shot of gas may help ?

Fuel bowl draining …

So on my car when I shut it off , you can literally see the fuel draining out of the glass fuel filter . It’s not going into the gas ( no smell ) and the fuel pump has been rebuilt , only thing I can figure is the flare I made on the new fuel line from the pump to the filter isn’t quite right . But I don’t see any leaks either ? Maybe there should be a check valve ?
Thanks everyone !

Yea eBay has one that looks nice for 50$ that was my next stop . Always thought it was interesting that you can find the same things on eBay by wording what your looking for , even misspelling it on purpose .

R11 OD relay ……
#6
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

So I was troubleshooting my OD on my ‘49 and realized it had some issues . After troubleshooting I narrowed it down to the relay , let me share what I found out .
First thing , if you need to troubleshoot the OD go ahead and download the BorgWarner manual from this forum . It’s much more informative for troubleshooting purposes .
After shopping and pricing relays from Packard specific suppliers it occurred to me that there is a exchange /core charge on these relays so that told me that they can be repaired . Same with solenoids and governors . We’ll stick with relays for now .
After troubleshooting my relay I removed it , held it up to my ear and it sounded like it was full of beans ?
See the first 3 pics , clearly the contacts were off and the brass rivet heads were laying in the cover.I’m going to call a weak spot here ..
After some careful cleaning and polishing with a dremel brush things looked nice and shiny . Pic 4
After pulling the brass rivets out and more cleaning I reinstalled the contacts with some 4-40 thread fasteners . I should have used brass but I was unclear if it was going to work or not . Pic 5,6
Re installed the relay and it worked as it should . Now it’s time for a road test .
In summary I guess these items are repairable and the rising costs of parts it’s always worth a shot to investigate yourself .

I live in orient Ohio and I was at this gentleman’s place to pickup some parts , this car isn’t that bad for what he’s asking . Pretty straight too …. Your about 6 hours away but super easy drive and easy to his place off the interstate . You should go get it 👍👍

Thanks for the explanation , I’m checking every component and wiring and making sure all is well . I did however find a inconspicuous ground wire that was grounded to the frame from the governor . I repaired it so I’ll take it back out and see if it works .

Ok , so if the car is idling and I reach down and squeeze the kick switch , should the engine die ?
And if the kick switch is bad will it not let it go into OD or just not let it kick out ?

You could always pull the plugs (or a few) and check the conditions of the carb mixture . Usually that’s a great tell tale sign of if it’s rich or lean . I’d like to check the accelerator pump operation . Maybe a missing pin or clip on the carburetor ?
