57 Clipper switch is push pull mounted in dash knob is different from 56 Packard but the escutcheon plate looks the same except for difference in shine on finish

Got one from motor city Came fast installed with no problems did have to move it a little to center filler in door opening but nice easy job and the shipping box makes nice piece of material to lay one while installing tank. Also got stainless sender from Kanter all new now as sender came with gasket and lock ring. Put 10 gallons in tank no leaks life is good no worries of leaks or dirt. I assumed Kanter would be better choice with their Packard background and experience if a problem or question comes up on sender

They have snaps to hold them and the cushion fit into the seat frame rather tightly . The original seats from Randy's car still had the snaps and they still worked, The new ones are a tight fit in the frame as well. Not a expert but just feeling on the matter. Jays car is very similar to Randy's except for interior colors. In video he made a few mistakes in regards to Caribbean but I respect him for his car knowledge to mention them he is true car guy with money to do his car collecting justice

One advantage of two doors are the doors are longer giving more room to get in seat with out hitting the b post. Even more important to tall people who want seat all the way back. 2dr not hardtops usually are quieter due to less moving parts like back two doors.

Thanks Howard Yes its Randy's Caribbean with push button shift.I was looking at wiring and it shows the switch where the wires for starter and backup lights connect. Assumed it was a switch similar to other cars. I asked rather than stumble on with no direct experience. Will start at pb relay area.

Have question on the neutral backup light switch is it adjustable can it be repaired or serviced. Should it be replaced . Any guidance would be of help. Have problem with back up lights and starter . Both of which are according to wiring ' Is a need for switch to be grounded in order to work properly. If needs replaced is there a substitute replacement . All my past backup light switches are on trans mission linkage

Installed new tank and sender not bad job except for old guy installing slows progress.Progress is slows now that weather is nice grass grows plants need trimmed lot of yard work. Also cruise season is here.
New tank and sender went together with no hang ups sending unit to tank made complete new parts installation. Next step add new gas which may need loan for that. The sender came complete with lock and new gasket seal. Did add ground to tank to chassis for added gauge operation. The lock ring required extra ground connection as on my Clipper (Studebaker style) uses screws to hold gauge in tank easy to add ground with one of attaching screws Was wondering about old tank as it is rusty inside and has leak . First thought is to scrap it as I assume new one will last longer than I will . The old tank was only coated on outside and rusted from inside. Pretty sure it was sealed on out side as entire tank was covered even the top and filler spout Read that coating of both inside and outside was only one method as outside only was cheaper. What is general feeling on future of old tank scrap is my first thought
