Lou Abelove was a long time customer of ours from upstate NY and seems to have purchased and stored the luxury car contents of a junkyard ,doing what many collectors ask to be done, SAVE THEM  (which has been echoed by many on this forum over the years) .If anything this a great opportunity for people in the Packard community to have the chance to save and restore another Packard or the opportunity to get a younger classic car enthusiast interested in Packards. There are about 7 Caribbeans all of which can be restored.  Many of the rest can continue to be good parts cars or restoration projects with minimal original costs.

We had a Packard convertible in very similar condition in our yard at 76 Monroe years ago missing many parts but we were able to provide along the way.  A customer from Brazil saw it and bought it and restored it to the condition attached. If anything we should be looking at these car's as an opportunity for the next generation of collector car hobbyist and not some "Crackpots collection". As with many of us in this hobby we collect and save these cars with good intentions but time has a way of getting away from us.

Thanks

You may want to try Dorman as they have a variety of pins and bushings. Available at most auto chain store and through Dormans websites

Glad to hear that you got the one in and your leak resolved. If you still have the front clip off I would definitely consider doing the others. Based on the fact of ease of access. I know I have gambled in the past and it has come back to bite me. When in doubt change in out when it come to block plugs.

We have been supplying the 1 3/4 freeze out plugs in our engine kits as well as individually for nearly 40 years with no ill affects. On occasion we may have a customer that has issues but this in many cases is in part to heavy corrosion or pitting at the blocks surface area. In those cases when we are notified we work with the customer and supply them with a larger freeze out plug if need be to remedy the situation.

Can anyone tell me who besides Kanter makes a headliner. They have become really bad at answering calls. Thanks


I am sorry that you are having an issue with getting in contact with our Packard Department. As others have mentioned unfortunately our Packard Department has been hit particularly hard this past week with Covid. Since the confirmation we have been pro-active to clean and disinfect the department. We have added salesman from our other sales department to handle incoming calls and any customer service issues that need assistance. We have also added additional warehouse employees to aid with pulling, packing and shipping of parts.

But regardless there had been a slight delay in orders being taken and orders going out this past week but now with the step that we have put in place we should be as close to normal with leads times this coming week.

You can also reach out to me through PM here and I will work with you to get an answer to what ever questions that you have.

Thanks

Re: Twelve water jacket covers

The cover is steel, the brass plate is not original , added to fix the leak from the hole in the steel cover. Packard senior 8's like your Pierce have an inner steel plate with holes to direct the flow between the cylinders.. If you have just a few small holes I suggest grinding them to expose good thicker metal and brazing the holes. Put soluble oil ( cooling system anti-rust) in the cooling system to retard future corrosion

Re: Remove the Speedometer cable

It is not necessary to remove the sheath and center cable to clean and lube it. Unscrew from speedo, lower the cable assb and pull the central cable out of the sheath.
Be careful, the cable can be very greasy and stain the upholstery...Clean the center cable in a suitable petroleum solvent, then reinsert it into the sheath. Much of the old grease will come out when you remove the cable again. Then put some solvent into an oiling nozzle container and shoot some down the sheath.

To lube it, get a tube of graphite, plain graphite and shoot some down the sheath. Do not use and oil/grease.. Oil and grease get thick when cold and will hamper the workings of the cable, graphite is not thickened by low temperature.

With the cable off the speedo, get a very small oil can with nozzle or a wooden match stick, dip in oil until you get one drop on the end, then put it in the oil hole just above the speedo/cable junction. It's a bear to find, good luck.
