Re: Fuel pump insulators

Ok, so I was changing out the Fuel pump on my '53 cClipper yesterday and sure enough, on putting the assembly back through the wheel well, I lose the spacer/sleeve. Spent about 30 minutes looking in the shock tower/control arm to no avail. The spacer on the opposite side of the pump fits in the hole snugly.
Does anyone else have any input on where to find these?

I do like Ross' gasket paper method
Where do you get gasket paper?

I'm thinking of just using the a paper gasket that came with the fuel pump and rolling that up.

Re: 1953 Instrument Pod Removal

Let me chime in here and say that, having done this, you should be very careful of the studs on the bottom side of the instrument pod, they will scratch your dash just under the bezel. Perhaps tape off with half inch aluminum tape or a good masking tape just under the bezel and as close to it as you can get BEFORE pulling it out. My dash got scrathced as it was hanging in place while I removed the wires from the back of the clock, etc. I know from a similar, older thread that others have had this unpleasant experience also. Now I know why a previous owner of my car didn't bother to put the nuts back on the bottom studs during a previous removal.

Good luck!!

The Delahaye is like a diamond ring on a satin pillow...

Just looked again at the first photo and it appears to have a Cord-like preselect transmission lever but on the left side of the Column??

Re: Re-bodied ?

Is that rebodied '37 Tweleve the same one that was sold at Hershey this year?

http://www.rmauctions.com/CarDetails. ... 2&CarID=r124&Currency=USD


Regardless, I quite like its odd look, and I see that the Hershey one went for a relative bargain, especially in regards to its provenance and pre-auction estimate. I'm sorry I didn't get to see it at the lodge.

Engine #; L-200049
Serial #; 2633-2008
Body #; 20124
Factory Order #; 59163
Mound # blank
Leveldraulic # blank

According to my info, looks like

Serial 2633-2008= 26th Series (1953),The 2633 serial number indicates a Henney Combo Chassis, The Engine Serial number indicates an 288 cubic in Inline 8 with 5 Main Bearings, Solid lifters, made in 1953,which would be a Junior engine, 7th Production model built for 1953 {2008-2001=7} but that may not hold true if Henney-built Packards used a different numbering sequence.

Re: Trico Nu-Matic window washer pump kit

My 53 Clipper did not come with a washer, but I added one successfully. My sources are as follows:

Washer Jet Nozzles: eBay

Washer Jar: McVey's

Bracket: Ross Miller, sandblasted and powdercoated silver by a local outfit.

Pump/Jar lid assembly(Vaccum Only) and it is just like new: Tucson Packard. They had both in stock at the time, about 18 months to 2 yrs ago.

Tubing and fittings: Various supply sources

A Message to all--

From my family to yours: The Bishop family would like to extend to all of you a very Merry and Happy CHRISTmas and Happy New Year.

Non-Shameless plug:I just made a small donation to the website, a Christmas Present, if you will.

I ask that EVERYONE join me in doing so in the highest amount you can afford, no amount is too small. Consider the benefit that this site is to you, the frequency at which you utilize it, the time and effort it takes to run it, and what we'd lose were it to cease operation, then click on the DONATE tab in your lower right.

Again, Merry CHRISTmas and Peace, Goodwill toward men.
