Thank you, also, Owen. I have printed out both messages and will use them when I make a try at adjusting this.

Thank you very much! I'll look for that adjustment.

Ultramatic Shifting
#3

The Ultramatic in my 1956 Packard 400 shifts properly until it gets into high, then shifts immediately into the overdrive. This results in the engine "lugging" at low rpms. If I depress the accelerator a bit, it will shift back down, but I'm wondering whether there is an adjustment to hold it out of that top gear longer.

"No Title" can be a problem in Indiana (experience talking).

Re: Whistle while refueling

I seem to remember being told or reading many years ago that the whistle warning was called the "Scully Ventalarm" and was a Packard selling feature for the period. My '47 and '49 both have it and, like some above, I wish the '56 did.

HH56 drawing is really helpful in understanding how it works. Never had seen that before. Thanks!

Re: RADIAL TIRES

I bought Diamondback radials for my 23rd-Series Deluxe Eight sedan about three years ago. I have been very happy with the ride and handling. When I replace the tires on the '56 400, I'll buy another set of Diamondbacks.

Re: 1951-54 Front Fenders

I'd like them to go to someone who can use them. Price is not hugely important. $200 for both would be good. I do not have pictures but could get some taken if desired.

1951-54 Front Fenders

I have recently come into possession of a pair of pretty good front fenders for 1951-54 Packard. These include the inner panels. Not perfect, but can be made so with little effort. These are taking up space, I can't use them, and I would be very reasonable about price for someone who needs them. Located in northeast Indiana, Zip Code 46992.

Re: Motor Oil

The Indiana Region of CCCA has partnered with D-A Lubricants in Indianapolis to produce Classic Car Motor Oil. It has the correct zinc and phosphorus amounts for our older flat-tappet engines. I've used it in my cars for several years now with good results. The Indiana Region, CCCA, will ship the oil to you if you like in 12-quart cases.

Here's their website: https://inrccca.org/product/classic-car-motor-oil/

The website is really informative.

Good luck!

Our 23rd Series Deluxe Eight Sedan has a set of Diamondback radials. We put about 800 miles on them on the Henry Joy Tour in the fall of 2018. We had zero problems and the tires are still standing tall. The ride qualities and handling of the car were dramatically improved.
