I had never tried to work on a car before and didn't even know the function of most tools let alone the workings of a motor before i found my Bathtub. That being said, with comon sense and very knowledgeable people the car is running again and i understand a reacognize the workings of the machinery. If the wireing were to just disapper, although i would be greatly annoyed, I could put it all back in with out much difficulty. I can't speak on the later models though. Go with your gut and time and effort will work out the rest

I would be very interested, dan. If it would be easier to post a pic or two here or email them to me (i sould have my email under my info) that would be great. I was thinking of bidding on the ebay ones, but i avoid ebay if i can.
Thanks for the offer.-Mat

The obvious solution is to get a 53' Packard for my new hubcaps,huh. :)

I'll keep looking for some hubcaps. these were $10 each. Couldn't pass it up if they were correct.

Thanks for the quick responses, guy.

I just purchased hubcaps from a wrecking yard that i thought were the correct ones for my 49'Deluxe Eight.2362.
They unfortunately do not fit on the wheels i have with the car. I was wondering if (1) anyone can tell me if i have the wrong hubcaps and if so can anyone post a pic of the ones im looking for. or (2) or if i have the right hubcaps point me in the right direction on what are the wheels i need. There is always the chance the previous owner changed them. Just covering my bases. Any info would be awesome guys. Thanks.

Thank you for the help the tube does in fact light up the Gem located above the headlights.

The choke controls I have been ordering and recieveing have proven to be incorrect each time. Could be i have to cave and get a whole new carb.

I found a gentleman who is selling a 48 standard 8 as a parts car but, won't part with the parts individual. The price for the whole car was just as bit high for me only needing a bit. If anyone else is interested i'll pass on his Number (CA).

If anyone has a few spare 644 carbs and docent need the choke please drop a line and we can work something out. I'm going to continue trying to find something reasonable on ebay.

Goodness it's good to be back. I have learned in the past couple months of the disease that plagues the working on our loves... the removal of time and money. I was going to go to the Packard meet but the fates said "no" and i was very ill. I just got over a week of the flu (maybe Broncitis, i should really see the doctor more) and I am itching to try and get back into the garage.

I have returned to school to finish my education, that plus work and remaining to be a good husband has squeezed my time dry. The weather in the Central Valley (Cal) hasn't been the greatest this year either (for working on the car anyways). I have the air cleaner in from kanter and i got my choke control in only to realize it's the wrong size. It's a fraction of an inch too small in diameter. Plus im at the point where i need to insure and register it as operational. I'll take pics this weekend of the progress and the air cleaner I received. I might need a word of advice on it's place ment

I was calling the parts links today looking for an Air cleaner asembly. I am unfortunatly missing all of it. When i spoke to them they asked, if it was an oil bath or dry?
I have been assuming i was looking for an oil bath. That is what the owners manuel here describes. Can someone explin if im wrong or if there are 2 options or something? If thanks.

The listing on the model info page here says i should have a carter WDG 728 carb for a model 2362. What i now have currently is a WDO 644 on the 288 engine. Will this matter? Do i have the wrong carb or do i have the earlier carb choice?

I found and ordered the choke mechanism/cap for the 644, i just hope i don't need a different carb.

Also i think you guys are right about the jewel light, i still need to see if i can locate it. Thanks for all the advice.
