Hi Mike,
Lots of good advice is given here. You seemed to have done lots of work already to your Packard and one thing I have learned from this board, look for the simple things first.

With that, check the two wires on the carburetor, make sure the wire is in good shape and connected securely.

That's my 2 cents worth (and I'd ask for change back)

I found this on YouTube and thought it interesting. The engine was frozen and Jonathan got it running.

Though you can not see the floorboard but it appears to be a manual transmission based on the shifter on the column?

Hi Ray,
Guess it was a good thing that you didn't get the '49 Packard you had an eye on. I take Craigslist with a tablespoon of salt, there are a lot of flakes and not to mention scammers.

Every morning, I check eBay for Packards to see what's out there. Below is a link to a beautiful '50 2 door. The price is higher than what you might have paid for the '49. However, you might do some homework (check Hagerty) and make an offer on the '50. At least you have a dealer to fall back on.

Anyway, take a look.

ps I don't own this car and not affiliated with the dealer in any way.

Hoping there is someone who will rescue this '49 wagon. It's rough and needs a lot of TLC.

Re: My 1948 Deluxe was in a garage fire. Is it worth saving?

Sjscat, I'm really sorry for the loss of your Packard and garage. I sure hope the insurance company doesn't take it to the scrapyard.
I would think the engine, trans, and other items are salvageable. It looks like the wheels, hubcap, and chrome in the front looks perfect.

All the best to you. Let us know what new Packard you pick out.

Re: Gas tank service

Hey Crin,
I used Gastankrenu for a '49 gas tank. Right now, no one is making repops for them. Renu did a great job, check out their website. They are a bit pricey. You can also UPS your tank to them but make sure it's clean and no gasoline smell. Apparently, UPS uses sniffers to make sure to hydrocarbons are being sent.
All the best to you.
