So made it out of spark plug boot

Then cut some spark plug wire took cent out.

Wrapped around wire. Some super glue..

The spout doesn't have a break.

Must be an EPA thing.


Gauge works. No leaks ..

Going with this float. Smaller in diameter... Had to bent the curve smaller

No, not an EPA requirement but rather some kind of misinformation based on an original tank that apparently had it. I never saw the notch on any other and the reproduction tank that I bought for my 1956 Clipper also does not have it but it does have the odd bends that yours has so clearly they did not have a roller bender available so used a die bender instead.

Don

They must use the GM die. Because the gas caps fit.

I bought a locking gas cap it worked on. To.

Rear windows.

You do not have to remove the regulator to get window in or out.

Just remove bolt for window channel.

Allows to pull channel out.

Then rotate window like front..

Windwings still thinking how to get glass out

Neither switch states a configuration so verify the two wires on those switches connect to ground and are not just both sides of a single switch that is isolated from ground.

Senior V8s have two separate courtesy light circuits which cannot be tied together. Each needs to be grounded for the lights in that circuit to come on. While 55 used two switches, 56 went to one switch that has two individual switches in the same housing.

The Eastwood switch looks more like the one Dwight Heinmuller https://www.packardparts.org sells but if neither switch fits the criteria, Dwight carries a 56 replacement.

Al. I have one like that coming from amazon. I think its a ford.

H. This cad one is like Packard.

Spade terminals. I will see if it goes to ground.

The Packard can be fixed. Just need to find a spring. Or have a bunch made up. But don't have a complete spring for sample.
