    Need advice & counsel on '30 Packard 745

    My old friend finally retrieved the '30 Packard Model 745 roadster he owned 40 years ago. Tho' re-restored in the interim, it sat unused for a few years in a private collection. My hands on Packard experience is with
    late '30s, '40s. We're in the San Fran/Oakland East Bay area. Anyone know a good source for points/distributor cap, ignition parts? And, as
    i haven't seen the car since its return "home" last Friday, is the canister at the left side of the engine an oil rectifier or ? How is it serviced?

    Enquiring minds want to know. Many thanks!

    Oil Filter
    Like this. http://forums.aaca.org/f119/packard-...ry-340951.html
    The original oil filter was a Purolator EF-2, a disposable canister type of bypass filter. There is a modern unit that externally matches the EF-2 but accepts a modern, spin-on filter inside. The vendor has advertised in the Packard club magazine, and I've seen him set up in the Orange Field (?) at Hershey. Contact information is Mr. Burr Ripley, 136 W. Dryden Road, Freeville, New York 13068 (607) 844 8473.

    No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin, he does not say, "You are a wicked motorcar and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go." He attempts to find out what is wrong and set it right. Bertrand Russel
