Re: Packard R11 overdrive and Kick down switch question

As long as you're above the 17-22mph governor engagement speed the OD should re-engage when you take your foot off of the accelerator pedal.

When you engage the kickdown switch it activates an ignition interrupter as a portion of the kick down cycle. You probably have a wire either shorted out or possibly miss-wired. There might also be a faulty solenoid or governor involved.

I have several 40s era WDO parts carburetors. I'll look today to see if I have a decent spring for you.

There is a complete 40 356 available in PA. Has already been rebuilt according to the seller. I found it on packard club's Facebook page and can put you in touch with the seller. He's asking $7k for it which is not bad for a rebuilt 356. Shipping would be pricey but you're not that far from him compared to me in So TX.

Hey Ken, I was wandering through old posts today. What ever happened to your 160 Sedan Convertible? I would be interested in it. I have a 160 sedan parts car that could be a possible supplier for the convertible. Thanks, Brett

Hey Ed compared to a lot of other cars I've driven my 50 Packard clutch already has a very light feel to it, not sure why you want to go through the aggravation of trying to convert it to hydraulic. Unless you're going to put 20K miles a year on it the original clutch would not need any more adjusting than a hydraulic clutch.

Hi Ian, I just picked up a 41 160 missing its entire interior. I'm heading up to Waco TX Monday to look at a pair of 40s that have their interiors. I know it's a long way from New England but sometimes you have to get parts where you can get them. I'm in South TX so it's only about 3.5 hours from me. I'll look at all the seats available and let you know what I find. If you're interested I'll have the owners contact info and can pass to you. Sometimes you can get a uship carrier to move stuff pretty reasonably. Brett

Re: 1941 160 Distributor Help

I have an Autolite distributor on a 1950 super 8 parts car with a 327 in it. I'll check the number on the tag in the morning and see if it matches the one from the 356s. It might need to be rebuilt as the engine has about 130K miles on it. At least you would know where this one came from.

In reference to other responses you've gotten on the value of your 160. Obviously, the car is only worth what someone will pay for it but there are parts on your car alone that are worth at least $2000. Namely the tail light assemblies and the overdrive transmission system. I'd hate to see you part the car out, but don't sell the car cheap assuming that it is not worth much because the engine is stuck. If it's a complete car you'll find someone who's willing to pay you what it's truly worth. Ebay is a good starting point to try to sell the car and usually the first time you advertise it will show you the maximum that someone will pay you. I'd list it with what you consider a reasonable reserve and see where it takes you(I think $5000 is a reasonable reserve). If the car doesn't meet your reserve you can always do a second chance offer if someone got close or list a second time and see what happens. There aren't that many complete 160's around and I'm sure there's a buyer out there for you. I'd be interested in talking you about your car.

I may have one in my shop that I'm willing to sell. Have you found one yet? Mine is an old, unmolested one that would need to be rebuilt. Let me know.
