Thanks for the updates. Just curious how some of the members here were up to that I hadn't seen around in awhile.

All the best to them.

I was going through some of the old posts looking for info, and noticed that some of the folks that were very vocal here haven't logged on in a year, or up to 10 years. Just curious if we had lost a few of our folks here or if they just moved on. A couple of names I used to see all the time and disappeared:

PackardV8

Very nice. I enjoy seeing other people's collections of automobilia. You've displayed it nicely.

I understand. It happens a lot here in the summer. Car show, there's a hood up and somebody's cranking and they keep mashing the gas pedal. 2 guys under the hood tapping the distributor, wiggling the coil wire. I tell them to hold the pedal to the floor. Leave it there and crank. They look at me like I'm crazy.

Glad it all worked out.

How to start a heat soaked engine.

This works 100% of the time whenever I have had a car not start on a hot day and the engine is hot. Wesley Boyer posted it earlier as well. Here is a video of how it works, and an explanation from a young man who rebuilds carbs and does fine tuning. He also demonstrates it on video.

So sad to hear of his passing. He was so helpful and when I first got my Packard in the 2000, he was very encouraging on another message board. He explained to me how the locking torque converter worked on my '55. He was a gentlemen and the knowledge he had on Packards was immense. I always got a kick out his love of trains. A kind soul.

Tough loss for the packardinfo crowd. Very active.

I found a picture he sent to me in an email way back in October of 2000.

RIP
