Is the gas tank vented on a 41 Packard 180? Or is the gas cap vented?

Taillight bulbs 1942 Packard One-Eighty

Does anyone know the correct taillight bulb for my 1942 Packard 180? It's a single contact bulb, whereas the brake/turn signal bulb is double contact and is an 1154.

I would guess that the same bulb was used by 1940 and 1941 Packard 180's.

If so, do you know where they can be purchased?

Howard,
Very helpful info. Will look into getting a 42 Packard parts book online from PAC.

Thanks to all of you who replied with the very helpful information. It seems like all of you agreed that the front coil springs on a 1941 Packard 160 are the same as the ones on my 1942 Packard 180. Not sure why the parts distributor told me otherwise. Will inquire again. JOHN

When I queried the folks at Max Merritt, they gave me different spring ratings for the 41 160 vs. 42 180 (both cars w sidemounts). the rating for the 42 was almost double the rating for the 41.

Others have said there shouldn't be any difference. Does anyone have any additional info or can lead me to another source for the info I need?

1942 One Eighty Front Coil Springs

I own a 1942 Packard 180 Touring Sedan with Sidemounts. I am considering replacing my front coil springs because they are sagging a bit. I have access to a new set of front springs for a 1941 Packard 160 with sidemounts. Does anyone know if the springs are the same for the 1942 180 vs 1941 160.

The Packard Data Book for 1941 shows a 1875x95 Rated Coil for 1941 160 & 180. I do not have a Data Book for 1942. If someone does, it'd be helpful to know the coil spring rating for my Model 2007.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Don. I appreciate your pointing me to the Factory Parts List. It answered my question .. front springs are the same for the 160 & 180 (w sidemounts).

Re: Power Window Switches for 1941-42 Packard 180

Howard,
Thanks for the helpful information and the link to Lavine Restorations. Unfortunately, they do not produce the part I need; however, they expressed an interest in doing so. I will follow up with them if I can't make the part myself. In the meantime, I will continue to search eBay and a few other sites to see if I can locate some operating power window switches for my 42 Packard 180 Touring Sedan.

If anyone else on the Forum knows of any sources for one or more of these switches, please let me know.
John

Power Window Switches for 1941-42 Packard 180

I have a 1942 Packard 180 and am searching for 3 power window switches to replace mine which no longer operate. Can anyone help?

While I would most prefer to buy replacement switches that work, I believe the inoperable parts are the plastic sliders as they have deteriorated over time (swollen and cracked). If anyone knows of any source for the sliders, please let me know.

Thanks,
