  1. I had my fuel pump rebuilt and rebuilt the Carter WDO myself. Installed with new lines and fuel filter. Am not getting any fuel in the line to start. Placed some fuel in the carb, got a sputter but still no fuel coming from the fuel pump into the carb. Any suggestions are welcome to get my Packard running again. Thank you.
  2. Good morning DLynskey, This is my first Packard and I have been searching for the right 36 120 to come along. I am glad I was patient in looking. On this car, the color, lines and originality all came together. I have other cars from the 50, 60's but this Coupe is real style in my eye. Thanks for the heads up on the turn signals. I have ordered the lights and after I install I will post some photos(both day and night) Take care and thanks again for the compliment.
  3. Good afternoon Steve, thanks for the advise, I will take a look at the head studs and check. Any idea on what is the correct torque measurement?
  4. Thanks C Carl, I did look at classic accessories online but will give him a call. Here in Florida I don't think hand signals are the best form of communicating with other drivers behind me. I will mention your tag name. Take care.
  5. Thanks bdc, i have been looking at different photos of Packards and where owners are placing the turn signal lights. I saw one video with Dave Charvet ( The you Tube "Packard Guy") and he had them below the rear bumper and I believe they had a disconnect so he could remove for a show. I will ask him to verify that. Thanks.
  6. To both Vintage rodshop and 1935Packard, thanks for the kind words. I had the car on the road yesterday,drove about 50 miles around town. I sure would like to have turn signals on the car. Who sells a turn signal kit that I can install? Also, I still have the original 6 volt system, so need to know if there is anything special on the wiring for the turn signal apparatus. Any help is appreciated.
  7. To Midman and Alsancle, Yes the style of the coupe is very appealing and I am looking forward to enjoying it for many years. Thanks.
  8. I bought the 1936 Packard 120 and it is being delivered today. Engine number matched the title and the car has been inspected. I am very pleased with the mechanics of the car and the body/frame quality. The Seller has provided me with receipts for all of the work completed on the car and I am confident that I will enjoy for many years to come.
  9. Excellent explanation of what I was looking for. Thank you very much. And I will say that all of your responses over the years I have read the Forum are always thorough. Your knowledge us greatly appreciated.
  10. Thanks, the seller told me that was the vehicle Identification and that he wasn't sure if that number matched the engine number. So do I need to have him send me a photo of the firewall number, correct?
  11. I am looking to buy a 1936 Packard Business Coupe 120 and wanted to research any particulars I can find with the vehicle id number X73771. I went to the Packard website and found general information however there was no area to look up the information to decode the VIN number. I would like to verify what the "X" stands for and I assume that the numbers may stand for something other than production number. The Packard website states that 55,136 coupes made that year, so the number 73771 must have another purpose. Any comments are appreciated. Thank you, Dean.
