Greetings All,

Does anyone know of a current part number for a 1941 Packard 120?

I can't seem to find any cross reference chart.

Thanks
Gene

I don't know if you have tried finding any of the replacements listed in the parts x-ref but if not, there are a couple of modern parts store equivalents that others have listed as fitting 41s and years around 41. Not sure how universal condenser mountings might be so you may need to tell the counterperson if you have an Autolite or Delco dist as that will probably be a determining factor as to if a particular modern condenser will work.

Thanks, it looks like ECHLIN AL-71 might be a good fit.

Happy Packarding.

Hi,

Tried to find the AL-71 in NAPA, but apparently no longer available.

The search goes on.

Thanks for your help.

Have you tried taking yours to Napa to match up? I understand that the main difference between condensers was the mounting and the length/type of wire but that the condenser itself was the same.

The autolite part number is IG2671K. If you search ebay several NOS ones will come.

Codenser is the automotive term for a capacitor. They are rated in MF (micro farad). The rating is usually stamped in the top.I took mine to my local Advance Auto and they looked it up both ways as a Packard part and the mf rating of the capaciter that I brought in. I walked out of the store with the part I needed for less than $10 bucks no shipping or waiting for the Postman.

The electrical value of the condenser affects ignition point life and ignition performance. I think most 6 volt application condensers will work OK on most any 6 volt system, but matching the original value as closely as possible will give best results. Old condensers can leak current through their insulation or dry out and change value. A fresh condenser of the correct value is best, if one is obtainable. Condensers can be checked for leakage with an analog ohm meter and some idea of their capacitance can be determined by how long one takes to "charge".
