Re: 1956 Brake Light Switch, Where is it?

Original 3-prong hydraulic brake light switches usually do not work after awile and even new ones will fail shortly after installation as they have a short shelf life. I have new mechanical brake light switches for $75.00. Dwight Heinmuller

Sorry you are having problems. I would guess that the underside of the hood was not cleaned properly which is why the 3M adhesive won't stick. Dwight Heinmuller
P.S. Why did you not contact me about this?

I have a Torsion Level bushing kit that includes all suspension bushings. It is
$435.00 plus $15 shipping. A torsion bar holding tool is needed to remove the a-arms; it is $345. Dwight Heinmuller 410-329-3022 in maryland

Re: 1956 monroe. Shocks

These shocks are NOT suitable for a Torsion Level Packard. They are heavy
duty and are TOO STIFF. Torsion Level
Packards use a shock with a 1" internal piston. Gabriel and Monroe do not make
shocks that light duty, which is what TL Packards should have. USE KAYABA (KYB)
front KYB 343127, rear KYB 343149. This set will fit perfectly all 1956 Packards and Clippers. For 1955 models, the rear shocks will fit fine, but the front shocks must be modified. Lop off the lower cross bar and weld in its place a stud from any shock.

Re: "Concourse" vs. "Concours"
#10

One has merely to look in a dictionary. Concours (con-cor) is the French version of the English concourse. Both are the same. A concourse is a large area for people to move around in, or a large area for exhibitions outdoors. Concours d'Elegance (con cor della gaw) is simply an elegant concourse. Why we don't use the American or English usage is probably due to the fact that Americans have no idea what the French version is. The French version also sounds more aristocratic.
