hello all. hope you will excuse any errors,but i am what is known in s. africa as a 'new one'. i have a 1938 120 and need two items to further my restoration. 1. patent plate which i understand was a paper sticker, and 2. thermostat coil as fitted within the exhaust manifold pocket, and which then operated the cold starting choke. either a repairable unit or even a diagram with some dimensions so i can make one. many thanks. dnielsen.

Welcome! Just curious, how did you find this site - referral or on your own?

The patent plate (vinyl sticker) is reproduced through one source only, Andy Wolf, P.O. Box 20606, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46220. I'm sorry, I do not have an email for him. Maybe someone else does?

I should have the thermostatic choke insert for the exhaust manifold, I will look and post back with picture, condition and price in a day or two.

hello flackmaster, i was introduced to the site by stuart of kanter, who have always been most helpful. thanks for the postal address of andy wolf. i was given his e-mail address by stewart via vivian devine, however i did not get a response, so i assumed the site was inactive.
i will be most interested in the details of the choke thermostat. when i bought the car it was fitted with a carter carburettor, this i swapped for, a stromberg. unfortunately this is a mix of different models, the air horn is stamped 10-28, the body is a model ee-23, both of these as fitted to a 1938 super 8. the base is indistinctly marked. so far i have jetted the carb according to ee-14 specs. all the choke levers and of course thermostat were missing,hence my interest in this item. if i could get a rebuildable ee-14 or ee-16 carb or even some of the major components, i would be over the moon.
i look forward to hearing from you.
regards dnielsen.

dnielsen - Let me add my welcome also. Glad to have you aboard and admire the determination of those in distant countries who insist on resurrecting their Packards. Good luck with yours and please post pictures.

dnielsen,

I talked to Andy tonight and you can reach him at:
awolf@werewolf2010.com. The price of the data plate is $44 plus shipping to your location.
Good luck on your project. I know it will be a beauty when you get finished.

Gene

OK, Pictures of the choke plate. Adjustable from within, spring is merely held on with a small cotter pin (not shown). link from choke plate to carburetor choke, but its gotta be the right carb. I can provide an EE-14 as well, should you wish to have a correct setup - the EE-23, notwithstanding a creative adaptation, will never have the correct performance.
