Kev,

Hope you and the family had a nice Thanksgiving.

Lets you, Dezi and I (or any other car lover here in the Land of Lincoln) meet up sometime in 2022 for lunch.

Tom

When you call in with questions you actually will be talking to the owner Barry. Very pleasant guy to talk to.

Dezi,

Even if there are no events maybe we can just meet up at some local place and make our own Packard show sometime. Maybe Kev will come out too.

Next project and a big one is replacing the leaf springs and having the rear end gone through to have the seals replaced etc..

I may have posted this before but I am having some premature tire wear on the front tires hopefully when I replace the front springs and have an alignment it should cure it?

Kevin,

Thanks

Rolled into work about 5:45am.

First time I have been out with it when it was still dark or at night. The Led headlight bulbs I installed in 2017 lite up the road nicely.

@1929PackardGuy,

I went with LED bulbs for some of the bulbs on my car.

Made purchases from these places

Headlight bulbs. These bulbs made a big improvement in lighting output.

Accessory/dash, Fender Mounted lights and Tail Light bulbs.

Mal,

Thanks. It sure feels good to get it out again.

Last few years I was taking care of my stepfather. He passed away last November after a long battle of infections from a botched knee replacement he had done years ago. He is not suffering anymore and I am sure he is holding hands with my mother (she passed away at the young age of 49 in 1993) once again.


I sure will try be more active here now. As we know how it goes to keep our beloved Packards running. There is always a need for the good sound advice here.

Update

I purchased a new/rebuilt fuel pump and rebuild kit for the pump I have from Max Merritt. I will rebuild the pump I have and keep it on the shelf as a back up.


Tire tube arrived yesterday and I installed it today. Also got the new fuel pump install.

The Packard is purring once again

Hi Kevin,

Thanks.

I have called and left Bill a message with with my needs.

Seems logistics on parts today are long lead times.

Was hoping and looking forward to taking the Packard to a fundraiser car show for a Humane Society this Sunday but will have the take the GTO instead.

Tube ordered from Lucas Classic tire. I needed a tube with metal stem the only type they have in stock was with rubber stem.

All other tire company's I checked with had no tubes available in the size I needed.

No eta from any company when the metal stem tubes will be available.

Still waiting for replies on a rebuild kit for the fuel pump.
