They built my '37 115 sending unit, start to finish, and it had a brass float; cork was original I understand.

That looks just like the clearance I have on my '37 115.

Re: 1940 Packard 180 petronix

I have pertronix products in three of the rolling stock, one being my '67 F250, a 1972 Bobcat skidsteer, and the third my 1947 Ford 8N, which was converted to 12V.

If you don't have full voltage, the Pertronix flat out will not start the engine. For all three of the above, that's pretty much full-time battery tenders, as each of them are used sparingly.

My other 8N is 6V, stock points, and never, ever fails to start, even with a 'low' battery. Or a crank start if it's altogether dead.

My '37 110 with stock points/condenser starts on the third crank after sitting for a week or two, without fail. Spares are in the glovebox.

Those are the same as mine--mine are bolted to the bumper brackets, and still "chrome" for now.

Nicely done. I like that body color.

I didn't break into the factory harness; I powered my switch from the starter if I recall.

My front turn signals are bolted to a bracket that I fabbed up from an "L" bracket from Lowe's; harness is concealed in a mesh-type loom and then fabric-type electrical tape. Front turn signals were from ebay, a replacement motorcycle turn signal pair. Added the 6V lamps, bought a 6V flasher unit. Took about 3 hours to install, and two beers. Hardest part was re-doing the rear harness as the original was crumbling where exposed. Works great. No, it's not factory, nor does it look it. But it's adequate for now. And with new wiring and new connections, they are plenty bright.

They're similar to these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/393417889619? ... 889753:g:880AAOSw-rVg25iY

KM built me one from scratch for my '37 115c; mine cost $185.

Beautiful work, perfect fit, works like it should. Highly recommend this company.

Re: straight 8 upgrades

With our brand F straight sixes, the least expensive upgrades usually resulted in surprising results. Header, modified intake manifold to fit a larger and more modern carb or a throttle body fuel injection setup.

Anything related to a Packard regarding boring or cam upgrades screams of parts made of unobtainium or less-than-thrilling performance.

But I'm not a straight 8 guy, my Packards are the lower end of the food chain.

Re: Needed: front brake drums 1947 Clipper and one wheel

I have a couple Packards, my '37 which was restored before I bought it, a needs-lots-of-time-and-money '40 110, and i bought a '47 engine from a clipper for the transplant.

That engine came with 4 spare wheels from the '47. I have no idea if they'll fit the cars....so they may be available. (also have hubcaps for that, too).

Edit: My wife's late uncle worked for Ike at SHAEF as a typist/clerk. He was a replacement for KIA on D-Day, and they pulled him out of the line on 6/8/44 because he could type and he spent the rest of the war working for Eisenhower. Lived down in Dallas; the first visit to his house I saw this enormous frame with SHAEF memorabilia, which is how I learned the story.

We named her for Amelia Earhart, who disappeared about six weeks after our '37 hit the streets.
