Walter, I was there the day the collection was first offered for sale. It was overwhelming. His widow said he had an addiction to online auctions and could not resist bidding. Do you know what happened to all the other Packard parts? There was some good stuff there, but she was selling by the lot, everything or nothing. Thanks ---

Everything is stuffed into the cars which are now sold pending receipt of final payment.

And you are correct, it is overwhelming the amount of parts that are there. There are only four cars, but five, six, and more of certain parts. So much so, it would have been difficult to separate the lot. I have had many offers on only one car or even two, but what would go with what?

There are several boxes with a bunch of re-chromed or NOS parts. Bumpers, grill parts, et. One of my favorite pieces is an antenna that looks better than new! And of course there are boxes of boxes....new tie-rod ends, dst. caps, rings, bushings, shocks, etc. It all goes as a lot.

I agree with you about the too much advance stutter-cranking, but it sounded like he was way retarded.

Just now re-read the post....I saw retarded but he also said 20 BTDC which is Way Advanced. Did I not have enough coffee this morning?

Couldn't he remove the coil wire to determine whether it's an advance related cranking issue when hot?

It sounds like two separate issues to me. Yes timing can affect starting, but it should crank the same regardless.

Slow cranking after getting hot can sometimes be caused by the starter having built up resistance due to the heat. Do you have a way to check for current draw cold, then hot?

Also...if the starter is fine, then the battery may be losing it's charge while running (not necessarily heat related) If this is the case, then your battery will eventually go bad from the deep cycling. Check battery voltage battery before you start, while starting, and when running right after first start, then check again after it's warmed up. Finally, check the battery voltage about 5 minutes after you shut down.

That's where I would start....both tests only take a minute or two and can tell you a whole lot of information.

I will be sure to let him know.

Hey, I see that you have a book in your signature. Any link to it? Does it have a title?

You are correct about the '30s. I believe Studebaker was the first in the 1936 President.
BTW, My '63 Avanti had the Hill Holder. (NO-Rol)

Water?

Guess I will have to watch some old episodes of McHales Navy to see Packard Powered PT boats in action!

Not a lot of PT boat action these days but here is a video that at least mentions the engines and shows the engine room. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AG8x8C5I8a0

Dirt?

Here is a Packard powered tractor running in a Tractor Pull.
Sounds like a Diesel.
