Re: 1925 Packard Six Fuel Problem

I can't get it started, but while cranking there is no vacuum from the engine. Removed the line, it's clear. Definitely clogged somewhere before the line to the vacuum tank. Also tried using a suction hose to the engine vacuum inlet line and create my own vacuum, still did not get the engine to run. Going to buy a 6v fuel pump and bypass the vacuum tank and see where that gets me. Thanks for all the feedback

I already tried putting fuel in to get it primed and it didn't work. Next thing was I put a vacuum gauge on line from the engine and there was 0 vacuum. With a lot of starter fluid I can get it to crank some, but doesn't seem to be enough to keep the fuel flowing

1925 Packard Six Fuel Problem

Hi Folks, have a 1925 Packard Six Paddy Wagon that was in a museum for many years and trying to get running using the original fuel system. I have redone the tank and connected to Vacuum Tank. Not getting any flow (can get engine turning over w/ starter fluid) and have no vacuum from the manifold tube. I'm assuming that's my current problem. Any thoughts on how to trouble shoot or solve the vacuum problem?

Also, debating on putting a 6v fuel pump in instead.

Any thoughts / recommendations on how to solve vacuum problem or thoughts about fuel pump?

Still trying to figure it out and striking out. Attached is the part that is in the tank and connects to the mechanical fuel gauge

Thanks for the info. I don't think it's the one you shared, I've attached the front of the gauge. I didn't take a picture of the back yet, but it's threaded and has a wire coming out the back that seems to control the position of the gauge. I've attached an image from the owners manual too, but not sure what the pieces are to make it work.

Just bought a 1925 Packard 333 Six. Dropped the tank to get cleaned and want to hook up the fuel gauge. I have the gauge, but no plumbing from tank and not sure what parts I would need in the tank itself. Does anyone have a diagram or know where I can see what parts are required? I have a digital owners manual, but not enough detail
