I’m at my shop again for the first time since July and found that my PC isn’t working so I’m posting this from my iPad.

This visit’s work is going to be entirely to clear out the left (west) quarter of the shop so that insulation can be put in the day before I leave. I have made good headway but for the Patrician which is in the way for the work, there are two choices: pull it outside, then push it back in again which will require the tractor OR get it to go out and come back in under its own power so that’s what I’m trying for. It needs the reinstalled TreadleVac, which has been rebuilt, bleed brakes, assemble the fuel pump and put in petrol. The steering column also needs to be reinstalled after the shifter was unstuck when I was here last. If time, I’ll also fix a seep at the thermostat housing.

Photos show rebuilt TreadleVac alongside the one that came out, the fuel pump pump in pieces. The old diaphragms are probably in too bad shape to try to save!

Is there a chart somewhere showing the different applications for AC fuel pumps? The one being rebuilt is not the one from this car but it is AC 9920 which is one of the two used for most 1951-1954 Packards except for a few which had Carter pumps. I have many cores and simply picked the best looking one! I would like to be able to identify the others, though.

It doesn’t usually take me all day to assemble a fuel pump as it did today but I thought I had gotten it all ready the last time I was here. Instead I found it full of old oil where the arms are and the solvent tank is currently inaccessible so i did the best I could with aerosol carburetor cleaner and engine degreaser.

Also, the new kits I have look well-made but the valves are a press fit so I have no idea how it will ever be taken apart again! I had also misplaced the bowl and its bolt but had one handy on the pump from the parts car. Not a great cosmetic job as the goal now, which is actually a rush, is just to get the car to be drivable enough to move outside and back in under its own power.

I also looked over the shifter assembly to put it back in but it was getting late and chilly by then and I could not locate the photos I had taken for the lever orientation so came back the block to the house where I could find them at my leisure, which I did.
