I follow a "Hot Shot" trucking group on Facebook as my son is in that business. These are the guys with a large pickup and open trailer for the most part although some have car hauling rigs, it might be worth looking in such a group.

Yes rates seem high, diesel goes up, replacing a dozen or more tires, rules and regulations, and insurance is through the roof, you handle money but not a lot sticks to the fingers as it passes through.

Dumb question, maybe I'm seeing things.

I see a slip terminal on a reddish wire that Ernie points to the temperature sender, however it looks as if there is a green wire on the temperature sender.

Is the reddish wire just blocking the view of the green temperature wire?

I see a green wire further down in the photo, wondering if the other part of the reddish wire is just not visible in the photo. Just a comment, I have to defer to the experts as I don't know the answer.

Not offensive to me for whatever that's worth and I figure I fit at least the elderly part. I started driving dad's 23rd series when he purchased a new car in 1960. A few years later when first married we had a couple of 55 Packards, then a long dry spell till we purchased a 40 and 48 in the more recent past. Age and energy sort of gets in the way of enjoying them, but guests get to enjoy seeing them at a tiny motel we operate with our kids.

It has been a while, but I seem to remember a size of 100 x 100 Pixels, may have been up to 200

Think you also want a JPG file and remember that "big" is not just physical size, but the size of the file, smaller or tiny being faster to load on a website.

I notice on the bottom of this page that several different file types are supported here at least.

Maybe I'm remembering something incorrectly, but thought I remembered reading that the 288 head on a 327 block gave more compression? Maybe I have that backwards or totally wrong, but perhaps check engine number on your 288/327 before considering it a 288.

Don, try right click and save image, I think I could then print my saved image.

Riki, I would probably be guilty myself, if I saw a Packard in a parking lot I expect I'd be drawn to that area for a closer look.

Thank you BigKev,

Of all the various Internet sites, forums and groups I tend to visit, this one is tops, I always feel I am surrounded by those gentlemen of old. Sure would be nice if certain other social media followed the same standard you set.

Re: 48-50 front bumper adjustment

It has been too many years since I was young and played with auto bodywork, but from memory I think the bolt holes on the bumper brackets were oversized to allow for some adjustment, that should work unless the bracket has become bent over the years. Probably take several folks to hold bumper in correct place while another tightens the bolts.

These were different from what we expect today, look for your booster under the floor/pedal area.

Search on the forum for "tredlevac" and you should find many stories.

Be cautious, from what I have read these fail without much warning.
