I might be interested of a tank for a 2150 if the price is within my budget.

I would pay for it depending on condition. Full restoration of a 356 cost about $7000 here in Sweden so everything depends on condition. Where are You? Is there any risk of the engine having been frozen previously? The crankshaft is particularly expensive to restore as there are bolt-on counterweights that must be removed first and the bolts have no heads so they must be drilled off. there are also a lot of bearings to grind, 17 of them.

Re: Optima battery

I use Optimas in my International Harvester Tractor and My Mercedes lorry, red 12 Volt type. They are both Diesel powered and need the extra oomph that Optima gives in the Swedish winter. The Lorry battery is about 25 years old but I had to replace the tractor battery about 7 years ago because i forgot to turn off the key and totally drained it. They are more or less immidiately destroyed if they get totally empty.

If You can find a Daytona restored carb, go for it.

This is how mine performs straight out of the box, no adjustments done. Just installed.

I am quite sure they come from my 1947 Limousine.

It was not me who disassembled it. A restorer did but he never finished the job (actually, he moved to America) so I am trying to puzzle it together myself.

Found these among my Packard parts. Had them painted, they were quite corroded.
Two of them are 1 3/8 high and two are 1 7/8 high.

Does anybody know what they are for???

Fuel line routing.
#7

Trying to figure out how the fuel line was routed on my 2150.
First pic shows where it seems to end. Question: Is it a hose from there to the fuelpump inlet.
Second pic shows lh shock absorber. Question: Does it go inboard or outboard of the shock absorber?
Third pic shows the lh frame rail. Question: Does it go under or on the side of the frame rail?
Brgds.

Re: Brake shoe return springs.

Thanks for the answers.
As the parts book and service manual are a bit lacking regarding pictures and information this forum is what makes it possible for me to restore my 2150.
The manuals were of course not intended for assembling a car that had been disassembled 30 years earlier by someone else.
I have testinstlled the rh rear brake to see that everything fits and works. Then I am going to find new brakelinings. In Sweden we had many workshops that glued new linings to old brakeshoes. Hope there is still such a workshop around.

Brake shoe return springs.

I am quite sure that this has been handled before in this forum but after trying to search for it without success I have to ask again.
On my 2150 there are two brake shoe return springs for each wheel. One is yellow and the other is red.

Which spring goes to the forward shoe and which goes to the aft shoe?
