Hi DAF, I wondered if it was easy to get to the car or are you back in Texas? I can wait if it's easier for you to get to it later.

Oh, I figured just the box but if you're saying you can't disengage the steering shaft and it only comes together as a unit, well I suppose it has to be that way. I thought the steering box was one piece and the shaft was attached. My mistake, if that's the way it is then that's what I need.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi DAF, I can't make it to Hershey this year - need to pack for a big move at end of October, but is it possible to ship the steering box to my current home?

Thank you,

Steve

Hi, if anybody picks up the 1939 Super Eight that was a roll-over I could use the steering gear box - let me know what price you have in mind. Also a horn medallion with the Packard Crest.

Thanks!

Another possibility is that your custom stainless tank is missing its baffles, which is causing major sloshing of the petrol......... Just a thought.Quote:

This past winter I purchased a new gas tank sending unit. Luckily, I bench tested it before dropping the tank and installing it. The unit registered backwards. After some back and forth with the manufacturer (KM Lifestyles) I got the correct unit and when testing it on a spare gauge I have, it worked smoothly and accurately. Then, once installed, it seems to work when the car isn't moving, but underway, there is a wild 'flicker' to the needle. The way it jumps abound is definitely not the float oscillating and I'm left wondering: bad ground? bad wire between tank and gauge? or maybe my actual gauge is bad. In as much as all of these are a fair bit of work to change, was wondering if anyone has any advice on what the likelihood of the root cause of this could be?? Anyone experienced this before? Much apprec. for any input of suggestions. Chris.

As regards your question on Pertronix, I had a 1954 Caribbean and a Pacific (exact same engines) and had 6 volt Pertronix in both, 22 years for the Caribbean and 13 years for my Pacific. Never a bit of trouble. I now have a 1939 Super Eight with the 6 volt Pertronix for almost 5 years and again, no trouble. All my Packards seem to start quicker and run smoother with electronic ignition. Hope this helps.
