Update on the progress of the car. I had some steps forward and some set backs.

The good:
-Fixed glove compartment
-Fixed front door locks fixed.
-Replaced the speakers
-Put in a head unit in the glove box.
-Installed a backup cam under the license plate.

The New problems:
-both passenger side windows won’t roll up. (I have already replaced both motors and regulators on the drivers side. Which are doing fine now)
-the fuel pump lever or throttle lever (not sure term it’s the thing that revs the engine and gives the car gas) loosens as I drive. Meaning the car idles slower every day after tuning. After a week I have to go back in and tighten it again. I’ll be replacing that asap because by day 4 I’m manually giving the car a little gas at stops with my foot on the brake because it stalls at idle.
-one of the hubcaps came off (Big ups to PSW for the replacement)

Connect the power going to the switch directly to the motor. If window works, it's the switch. IDK what people do to fix though. May be able to disassemble and clean, probably not.

Throttle linkage I think is what you're saying. Goes to carb. It should have jam nuts on it. If it's still coming loose, buy a small bottle of Loctite 242 and apply that. Only need enough to coat the threads not soak it. :) Or replace jam nuts with nylock nuts.

'55 400. Needs aesthetic parts put back on, and electrical system sorted.
'55 Clipper Deluxe. Engine is stuck-ish.

DO NOT GROUND ANY WIRES on the stock Packard window motor. The case is ground so power will need to be applied to one wire -- either the yellow or the black wire -- to move the motor. Do not have anything other than the case grounded on the Delco motors.
