Overdrive Solenoid Wiring Question (R9 unit on 1948 22nd series)
#1

Hello, everyone! I have a question regarding regarding the wiring on the R9 overdrive solenoid. I am familiar with the wiring diagram, but I don't know which wires correspond to the actual connection points on the solenoid. When I bought the car, the solenoid wires were disconnected, so I really don't have a frame of reference.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the info! You're a lifesaver, I was worried I munched a gear or something. I should mention I can't move the shifter handle at all, it's completely stuck.

I'll take a look at it tomorrow. Thanks again!

Transmission issue!
#3

Hello everyone! While I was driving my car to test something, a very strange issue cropped up:

I pulled up to a stop sign and moved the shift lever out of first, and into neutral. When I went to put the car back in first, the shifting lever remained in neutral but the car was in first! I tried to wiggle the shifting handle to get it out of gear, but it wouldn't leave first.

I'm wondering what might be wrong. did a cursory inspection of the shifting linkages, I couldn't get any of them to move in an appreciable manner, and I went under the car to shift the transmission by hand, but I couldn't shift it.

The shifter handle is currently in the neutral position, and the transmission is currently stuck in first.

Thanks in advance!

I think I'm just gonna pin it open. I live in Florida, so cold weather operation isn't really a major concern of mine. Thanks!

Is the coil spring internal or external? There was no coil spring that I could see, and very little resistance. Could the heat riser cause issues when the engine is warm?

Lever thingy on exhaust manifold?

Hello everyone! I was trying to diagnose a rough running issue on my Packard, and when I was under the car I found a square lever thing on the exhaust manifold right under the intake. What is this lever thing? I tap it with my wrench, and it spins freely roughly 120 degrees.

Tire pressures

Hello everyone! I'm curious to what pressures everyone is running in their tires. I'm running 235/75 R15s on my car, and I'm running 28psi in the front and 32 in the rear, but I really have no idea if those are good pressures for the car.

Carb question

Hi everyone! I just took delivery of my Packard LWB, and it died while the truck driver was trying to move the car off the trailer. After a fruitless attempt of starting it, I found picture related. There's obviously parts missing; my guess is that the bar impinges on the turning thing to keep the choke open while starting, but I have no idea. What is this supposed to look like?

Thanks,

Zak

Read up on SMS's Facebook page. Comment after comment on people waiting for door cards and seat covers going on 3 years. When the work does get done it's great. But the wait time and communication aren't great.

However on other items they seem to do better. They did my headliner and got it out to me within a few weeks. Fit was perfect and the material was dead on.

Awesome. I'll give them a ring for my headliner then. the one that's in the car is totally shot, I'm holding it up with zipties right now.

Can you send pics of what you have? I don't think the fabric in those years is anything too special but you will need the trim that goes on the door panels.

If you want some you better order quick as SMS has a 1+ year lead time on door cards. [/quote]

I'll take pics when the car gets here. It's 1300 miles away from me right now, I don't have a camera pole that long! I figured the fabric wasn't too special, but I have no experience with automotive fabric work; Marine and auto are totally different ballgames.


Thanks for the replies! The information is much appreciated.

Interior upholstery

Hello everyone! For my 1948 Packard project, there's a few outstanding issues that I haven't sorted solutions for, and they're all with the interior!

Are there any shops or companies that make reproduction door cards and interior trim? My vehicle is missing the door kick plates, and the front door cards need replacing. With time, I'm certain I could learn to make them myself, but that would be a long time away.

And, if there are no companies that make new interior trim, has anyone found suitable replacement materials? Wool, leather, etc. that's similar to stock for the old 22nd series?

Thanks in advance!
