It does help. I may be feeling in the center and your picture looks like it is closer to the fender side. I have about rdecided I need to jack it up and remove the splash pan. I think I could feel it better.

John lost his supplier and no longer has the 356 belts. Several have indicated NAPA can match it.

Need to remove the generator on our 1940 160. I have removed one on our 47 356 as well as our 48 327.Never had a problem. I just cannot get to the front bolt on this one. Considering removing the splash pan on that side so I can see the bolt from underneath. Is that the solution? Also, looks like I should replace the belt. Anyone have a source for that wide belt?

No brake lights or load leveler

During a short cruise this week in our 55 Custom Clipper, the rear end was low when we stated. When it adjusted, it went too high and would not come back down. Checked the in line fuse as well as the one in the fuse block and both appear fine. Installed n.o.s. spare brake light switch but did not help. tail lights work and turn signals work. may install another switch to make sure but what else?

1947 Custom grease fittings
#7
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Tommy Baccaro
for the grease fittings on a 47 Custom. I need to replace a couple that should have had an angle on the head as where they were installed by someone you cannot get the tip of the grease gun attached because of clearance. In another case, the fitting on one of the kingpins is not even there. I checked with one of the major Packard suppliers and they could not help. I removed one and took it to O' Reilly's parts store and they could not match it. The part you pout the wrench to is 5/16. But don't know the size of the thread part. Help appreciated.

What is the correct size for the zerk grease fittings on a 47 Custom. Would they be the same for a 48 model?

Re: 55 Clipper voltage regulator

The one reply so far does not help me with my concern for our 55 Custom 12 volt positive gr with the Delco electrical system. I am concerned because the previous unit overcharged and destroyed a battery. The trip I described was also made by our 48 six volt and that VR was cool to the touch. Granted, it is on the firewall and much further away from heat sources than the one on our 55. ( which is right next to the radiator). Someone please check their vr after a trip. I may just be worrying about nothing as the temp that day was in the 80's.

I have noticed twice following an hourlong drive at highway speeds that my v.r Is pretty hot to the touch. Shorter trips okay. I checked and it is functioning at about 12.4. Volts. I burned up a battery last year when the previous one failed and over charged it.' Is it normal to be pretty warm to the touch? We are in South Texas and weather was in high 80's.
