Re: 1949 23rd Series Fuel Line

That is exactly what I needed to see! What I am missing, unfortunately, is the line that goes from the base of the front of the pump to the carburetor bowl fitting. I might also be missing the line that goes to the windshield motor, but I can worry about that later. Is there any place I can get that line with the correct fittings in place? Additionally, what sort of filter was used in that line? I can't say I have ever seen one. The previous owners of this car bypassed the old pump so the fuel line was actually fitted directly to the carburetor so that would be why we are missing the line between that and the pump.

Hi Howard!
Sorry for this really delayed reply and thank you for your help. It turns out, that upon closer inspection, the fuel lines are still present running the length of the car. A previous owner bypassed the original fuel pump, however, and I am not quite sure how to get all that back together (after we purchase a rebuilt fuel pump). Is there a diagram or map/photo I can use to get the engine area of the fuel system back together?

1949 23rd Series Fuel Line

Hi all!
It has been a while since the last update on our '49 Deluxe 8, but it's time to start putting the fuel system back together. What size fuel line is needed for the 288 c.i. cars? Most of our fuel lines have been removed so we're not sure what size is needed to do the whole thing over again. I am looking to get steel lines, probably about thirty feet of it. Was the whole system just 3/8" line or am I going to need a variety? We will also be installing a newly rebuilt dual action fuel pump. Thanks!

Wow! That is quite a bit to go through, but this interior is going to look the best it can on my watch! I will give it a try the next time I am home and working on it with the old man. I do have a question as to removing the gear shift lever. Does it unscrew like the turn signal lever? Last time I tried to remove it, it really didn't move, so I didn't force it. Also, the same question applies to the wiper switch (more of a little wheel, really). I think this is doable, since the interior is still all out and will make removal easier.

That is good to know. I will look into paints and see what I can find that is the closest match. How can I remove the column shroud for painting? Obviously, I do not want to leave it on there, so the steering wheel, turn signal lever, and shift column have to be removed. The wheel and turn signal lever are easy enough (sort of), but I am unsure on how to remove the shift column. I think, for now, I'll leave the dash alone and hopefully can get the wires in alright without the seats in.

So Harnesses Unlimited and Rhode Island would sell cloth wiring harnesses? That's great news, because that's what I really wanted to do.

I actually just saw your post on another one of my threads, Fred! Sorry, I haven't been on in a while. The whole interior is out right now, so hopefully, it's a little easier to get under the dash and not have to remove it. Also, for anyone who can answer this, where can I get the brown paint for the steering column? It's pretty rough and needs to be repainted.

Fred, where did you get your wiring harness from? Do any places sell the harness in cloth wiring? Unfortunately, we had to put the engine back in because someone needed the engine lift we had. Also, how do you take out the dashboard? I would assume that makes wiring the gauges and radio much easier.

The car has finally been repainted! The new paint looks absolutely stunning. So, at this point, the engine and transmission are to be reinstalled (they have also been repainted in the original gray) and the exterior of the car will be reassembled. Rubber and wiring will be next, and then the interior will be restored.

1949 Packard Weatherstrip and Wiring Harness
#10

J.R. Buzzell
I'm almost certain I've posted a thread on this subject before, but I just can't find it anywhere, so perhaps I didn't. But anyway, my car is getting painted at last and now I am in need of a full weatherstrip kit and wiring harness for the car. It's a Deluxe 8 Sedan. I wanted to know where others got their kits from and what was most satisfying, easy to work with, and overall best kits on the market. At one time, I had found a couple sources for these two things, but I've lost them thanks to technology crashes. Thank you for your help!
