Good morning.I agree with Gary. The cause may actually be that the car was not driven regularly. You do need to remove the head and valve covers and inspect. Another problem we see. Over and over is starting these engines with old fuel. They sometimes do start, but leave varnish everywhere, and when it cools and hardens, the engine becomes stuck. You need to do this work correctly. Attempting to save money usually means you will pay twice, unfortunately. Good luck. Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning Richard...prehaps a dumb idea (I have them all the time) but you might sell the 34 with a membership to Packardinfo.com...offer to show the new owner the ropes...and up-date the registry with the new name and such for the new owner. Ernie in Arizona

Good afternoon...I believe that Don is correct and you need to locate another engine to play with. I have not rebuilt Packard engines, but do work on Model A Ford Engines on a weekly basis. When they come in looking like your engine...they are not normally capable of being rebuilt...about one time in 50 or so...Ernie in Arizona

I agree with Owen...Miss Pricess, our 49, is stock and she will fire up 'Right Now' if she is driven every other day or so. Let her sit for a week and she will fire on the fourth four second cranking session...it takes that long to pump gas from the tank to the carburetor...PS...We like to drove Owen crazy with questions when Miss Princess arrived in our driveway in 2012. He politly answered every question. Ernie in Arizona

I ended up helping a friend in California for a week...so Miss Prudence did not receive her weekly work out...came home yesterday and after putting things away...climbed into the old girl to take her out and give her some exercise...she let me know that she had been sitting for two weeks...she was a grumpy old broad and damn near did not start...perhaps with a 10 year old battery...might be time to get a new one...then again...It just might be Prucence being difficult...she does that once in a while...Ernie in Arizona

Good Evening Don...If you don't wish to cut the tail pipe, I wonder if Grayhound Bus would take it. One of my neighbors ships stuff by Grayhound and feels that they are less expensive and nice to work with...Just a humple idea. Ernie in Arizona. Miss Prudence likes the Grayhound Idea...She sends her love.

Took Miss Prudence for some exercise and we stopped to say hi to a lady who we have waived at for several years during our early morning exercise. We've decided to have breakfast and visit one morning not too far down the road...on the way home Miss Prudence ran over a rabbit...Oops! It shot out of the brush on one side of the road and Prudence could not stop or turn quick enough. Sad thing to have happen on an otherwise nice drive...Miss Prudence is sulking a bit this afternoon.

Good Afternoon...You might try Potomac Packard 706-746-2318. Both are good companies. Ernie in Arizona

Good Morning...I'm one of those fellows who has a 31 Model A and a 49 Packard Deluxe. Both cars are reliable around town and on the road. The A with a Mitchell Overdrive will run 50 to 55 pretty happily...on flat ground...The Packard has and R11 overdrive and will run 60 without sounding like it is over working...on flat ground...It is more comfortable than the A...but then there is almost 20 years between them...A 23rd series in good driving condition is about equal in price to an A in good driving condition...not show quality but nice in both cases...Radial Tires on the Packard make it run down the road better than the bias ply, but a bit harder to manover in the parking lots at low speed. Just my humble thoughts...Ernie in Arizona
