Re: 1933 EE-2 Light Eight Carb finishes
#1

Here is what I have heard from a person I trust:

Black body. Cadmium plate on all hardware and linkages. No plate on idle jet screws. Nickle plate on pipe fittings.
Since it's a 1932, you could go nickel instead of cadmium I suppose.
Maybe you can see remnants of nickle or cad under a screw head or some such. Could be either, really.

No polish on any linkages. Industrial finish only.


I'll report what I find once I get the carb.

1933 EE-2 Light Eight Carb finishes
#2
Home away from home
Home away from home

Thomas Wilcox
Dear All,

I just acquired an EE-2 Packard carburetor that I am planning on installing on my 32 Light Eight (I have the manifolds). This was a factory approved upgrade in 1933. Unfortunately, I cannot find any images that indicate what this carb should look like as far as finishes and plating. Is there anyone out there with some clues?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

The 25 is David Stewart's car. He drives it down from Longview every year. I can tell you that it is all original. He even has a working fuelizer! He used to use, and perhaps still does, that car as his daily driver. It is a great machine.

I am pretty sure I will be attending with my 733. It is down to final cut and buff and then pinstripe.

I was going to bring the 34, but driving back from the Texas meet in Kerrville I had a major breakdown. Something let go in the engine. Which sucks since it has only 300 miles on it since it's rebuild.

Looking forward to seeing to folks.

Here she is before heading off to Houston for Upholstery:

I have had the same problem with my 34. It turns out, for my car, that the replacement synchos that were installed many years ago were a different thickness. Tom Rasmussen (Odyssey Restorations) figured this out. I suggest giving them a call (http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/mod ... glelink.php?cid=6&lid=144).

Cheers,

Tom

I'm sorry I missed this post. I am in the process of making this piece for my '30 sedan. Like you, I have several pieces of the frame. A local guy took those pieces and did a 3D scan, and from that has digitally recreated the original piece. I am now working on how to turn the design into an original(ish) part.

If you are interested in this part, please let me know (tom @ restorations120 dot com)

Cheers,

Tom

Re: What are the most common problems for 120's?
#8

From my experience, the most common cause of failure is the last mechanic to work on the car before your purchase. In particular, various fixes that were tried to "compensate" for the 6V electrical system.

If you end up with starting problems, charging problems, electrical shorts or other electrical gremlins, look for these fixes and try to return the system to original condition.

The one thing, electrically, that I would change is the negative battery cable. I always upgrade these to 00.

Other fixes that can cause problems are electric fuel pumps. If plumbed and wired properly, the can be great. A lot of the ones I have seen are not so correctly installed.

As far as touring supplies, I would add a roll of duct tape, a roll of electrical tape, a gallon of reverse osmosis water, and some zip ties.

Oh, and a spare, charged 6V optima (or similar gel cell) battery. This is great for giving yourself a jump. These types of batteries are small and relatively light.

Cheers,

Tom

Just curious, do you have a weak blue spark on all cylinders? Are your plug wires in good shape*? Is there any evidence of burning on your distributor cap?

*For example, if you grab a spark plug lead while the engine is cranking over and get a shock, your plug wire or cap are sho%&#$#$..damn that hurt.
