Starting a 1929 Packard 8 with straight 8 and Detroit Lubricator Carb.

Does anyone have any secrets to starting a 1929 Packard 8 with a straight eight and a Detroit Lubricator Carb? It also has an electric fuel pump.

My 1929 is a bear to start when it has set for a couple days. I can crank and crank the motor and it doesn't even attempt to fire. The only way I can get it to start is pour gas into three or four cylinders. Once it is running it runs like a Rolex watch.

I've tried adjusting the timing and using the choke while cranking the motor. With the electric fuel pump gas just runs out of the carb but the spark plugs are dry as a bone.

Thanks for the info. I will measure the wheelbase the next chance I get. I have a feeling there are a few things not original. The flying lady on the radiator doesn't look right either.

1929 Packard Model 8

I recently purchased a 1929 Packard Model 8. I'm trying to figure out what model it actual is. It has wire wheels. I don't know if they were a factory option or if it is just a modification the previous owner made. I purchased the car from a dealer in Florida. I don't have any information on the previous owner.

Any help identifying the model would be appreciated.

Thanks!
