I used a pressure bleeder on my 1954 Patrician which flushed and bled perfectly.

I can say that I have not confirmed that the oil pump rotor (gears) turn when the crankshaft turns because that would involve removing the cover from the oil pump and I did not want to damage the paper thin gasket.


Not quite. The gear on the pump also drives the distributor so if the distributor is turning, so is the pump.

Ernie, based on a comment after my post, it might be postwar R9 rather than R6 as it has a switch on it. It's in the Classified Ads of my site linked below and I guess I should have looked there to refresh my memory before posting!

Can we assume the oil pump gears are turning when you crank the engine?


That should be easy enough to check by looking at the distributor rotor to see if it's turning. If it is, then you've eliminated a problem with the cam or pump gears. Of course, if there had been a problem with those, it would not have run at all.

I have an R6 lockout cable but just sold the kickdown switch.

As far as I know, no Packard had R7 or R10 overdrive and I had thought that the last year for R6 was 1939.

I have available those felt seals that go inside the column but haven't yet offered them on my site (linked below) as I've not yet tried them myself. I'll do so in a couple weeks when I'm back at my shop.

Re: Clipper tire size

The original size was 7.60 X 15 so just go to DiamondBack or other tire shop and buy that size or, if radials, they have charts. Note, however, that few radials or even non-radial modern tires will translate directly as tire ratios have changed. Using DiamondBack is probably your best bet of getting the proper fit as they make radials in vintage sizes and with the proper tread appearance.

In case no one has mentioned it, the side windows are flat glass so any local glass shop can make a replacement in any tint or color that's available! Just be sure to specified polished edges.

The shaft does have q little wiggle which I suppose acts as a sort of universal joint making it unnecessary for the distributor and oil pimp which drives it to be perfectly aligned. On end play, though, there is a specific amount. Not sure what it is so best to look it up but a guess based on that on another make indicates about .017” max. If more, you might need another trip to Napa to get the appropriate shims.
