Overdrive Questions

After my last 100 mile trip, I'm thinking of installing an overdrive in my '40 110. Is there a difference between the Jr. and Sr. cars when it comes to purchasing an overdrive? Is there anything else to check or watch out for? Simplicity and reliability are key for me so any suggestions related to the actual unit and installation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks as always for the help!

Would anyone happen to have a good current part number for the rear tube shocks for a 1940 110? The Delco Pleasurizer P2003's that are on it are shot but I haven't been able to cross it to anything yet. Thanks for the help!

Best Penetrating Oil!!!!!!!!!

I've been using aproduct called Free All for the last few months and just have to share this amazing product. It puts WD-40, PB Blaster, and Liquid Wrench to shame. In all the years of working on rusty crusty iron, I have never seen anything that breaks things loose like this does. It's a little pricey, but once you try it, you'll never go back.

BTW, I have no affiliation with the manufacturer or any suppliers. I've just broke, rounded, and torched to many bolts in the past not to share my experience with it.

I'd have to agree with Richard and Ken. Being on the front side of building my collection, I plan to drive and share these amazing cars for the next 40-50 years. Been doing a good number of weddings lately and it's great to share the "Packard Experience" with others.

Hopefully your children or younger relatives will excitedly take over the care-taking of your baby, but if not, let me know and I would be glad to make sure it's preserved and enjoyed.

Re: Regulator and Charging Issues

If I am reading this diagram correctly, the 4th wire is a ground that runs from the relay to the headlight distribution block and then down to the generator. My setup does have this ground wire. Guess I forgot to mention that that one was hooked up as well. Thanks for the additional schematic.

Regulator and Charging Issues
#7

Hoping someone may be able to provide some incite into this problem. I'm working on a 1940 110 with a charging issue and am completely stumped at this point. This issue has been present since I purchased the car.

The amp meter shows a slight discharge when first started and this progressivley increases as its driven. Headlights and turn signals increase the discharge. Momentarily grounding the Field terminal on the regulator will get it to charge for a short period of time but then it will go back to discharging. It will also show that it's charging by connecting the "BAT" and "Arm terminals.

I have bench tested the Autolite generator and it is good. I am on my third regulator and am considering a 4th. I polorized the system when the 2nd regulator was installed and generator was bench tested. I have also gone through all the terminal ends and grounds to make sure they are good and clean. It has a brand new battery and new 00 cables. The current regulator is a 6V POS/NEG unit from NAPA.

I have traced the three wire hooked to the regulator and it appears that they are all hooked correctly. There is however a loose wire w/ no terminal end that is near the regulator that is hooked to the ignition switch. Is it possible that it should be hooked to one of the regulator terminals?

Does anyone have any thoughts? I appologize for writing a novel but as I said, I'm totaly stumped at this point. Thanks in advance for the help and ideas.

The bulbs from highspeedmotors.com are available in 6V and 12V, Pos or Neg ground. I am in hopes of swapping some in next month. I'll let you know how I make out.

Need Opinion On LED Tailights

This thread may be better suited for the modification section of this forum but I thought I would start here. Has anyone used LED taillights in their cars? What were your results and would you recommend them. My main interest is in brighter lights/turn signals as well as reduced draw on the system. I have looked at the ones from highspeedmotors.com and they seem like they would throw off the most all around light. These would be going in a 1800 series. Thanks for your help!

I purchased these lights from our local CarQuest. They are Wagner H6006. I'd have to find the receipt but I believe they were around $15 a piece. So far I don't seam to have a heat issue in the wires or switch but I may go ahead and install a relay since I do a fair amount of night driving. Thanks all for the help!
