William, thank you very much again for sharing your very timely suggestion on 1942 service letter (re: ignition cut out pps 2-3)- it was quite helpful for mechanic to check the OD relays which here indeed sticking & contributing to my stalling issue. First, On a hunch, once the mechanic disconnected terminal #2 going to the coil from the overdrive relay, it immediately stopped the stalling. This led to the use of '42 service letter in checking the relays. I am happy to report that as of last Thursday, the problem seems to be resolved, Thank God!

Once more, I'm very grateful to you for you kind suggestion!

Jeff

Howard, I wanted to get back to you to report that as of last Thursday, my stalling issues seems licked, Thank God! The mechanic was able to service the sticking over drive relays with guidance from pps 2-3 in the 1942 service letter on "ignition cut out." Your detailed explanation you provided in your last email was most helpful in resolving this chronic issue. Also, the kickdown also seems to be working just fine so far.

How did you acquire such an extensive knowledge about Packards - what is your background?

I'm very grateful.

Jeff

Jeff, thanks for the kind words and glad to hear your car and the OD in particular is starting to co-operate. The original problem did sound like the coil acting up and that symptom of intermittent engine dying only to work again after a restart is a known issue with older coils that get hot or are starting to fail. At least you now have the Napa coil as a spare for emergency use so it is not money wasted. Just figure out some kind of mounting you could do on a quick emergency basis and you are set.

As to what little Packard knowledge I might retain in the decreasing number of active brain cells, it mostly came from devouring tech and service materials and being fortunate enough to have more than a few Packards to play with over the years. Sorry to say it was not learned the hard way by actually turning wrenches -- at least not on cars. My day job for over 40 years was the installation and servicing of medical imaging equipment.

Thank you for taking time to respond to the personal query! Most assuredly your ability to process and digest what you have read and ability to "spit it back out" for the rest of us to consume is invaluable! Please keep that "grey matter" sharp as I have plenty more trouble shooting to tackle, I'm sure & I'm gonna need 'ya, LOL!

Today for the first time with fear & trembling I decided to move away from ethanol free & try regular gas with 6 oz of Marvel Mystery Oil added for my 18.5 gal tank. The folks at Daytona Parts Co encouraged me to do it after I installed my carb rebuild kit and enough Packard friends & mechanics locally & elsewhere weighed in also - enough to persuade me to try it. What prompted this change was the almost one dollar difference between regular gas & ethanol-free.
