I've been back from a deployment for a few weeks now, and happy to report that the old girl fired right up. I disconnected the battery last fall before I left, and all did was re-connect the battery, check the fluids, and she fired right up. Took the kids on a 30 mile joy ride. All is well in Packard land.

When I did this job last spring, I used a heat gun to get the old gasket out, followed by a lift steel wool. I did end up painting some bare metal as well, then 3M weatherstrip adhesive. I mentioned it on my 120 blog linked below.

Re: 1937er Packard 120 convertible rear wheel bearing tips

I just did this job on my ‘37 120. The axle shafts pull out easily. I believe I only needed a few taps of a slide hammer. I had a harder time getting the seals out. I ended up making a puller - there are details on my 120 blog if you’re also doing that task.

Be advised, the bearings are a special sealed type made of unobtanium. They went to a more standard tapered roller bearing in ‘38.

Went to a car show inside a 200 year old fort this weekend. Weather was great. I was one of two pre-war cars, with the other being a 1931 Model A. About 50 cars. Great day, and my kids hung out with me all day. Lots of attention for the old girl, and met some great people.

How is the ignition system? This sounds to me like classic coil failure.

Pure-gas.org is a great resource for finding ethanol free fuel.

Congrats on your purchase!

I don’t have a battery disconnect switch installed yet, but I did drive about 150 miles this weekend. Happy with how the car is sorted. Biggest concerns right now are an intermittent exhaust leak that I can’t pin down, rattle from the wired open heat riser, and rattle from the running board trim. Trying to enjoy the recent drop in temperature down here, before I have to go out to sea again.
