  1. Anyone know if the conversion shown at this link will work on the '41 120 with straight 8? It just says "straight 8." Speed Gems Transmission Adapters

  3. I've been stalled trying to get into this because of other things going on and a friend who is really good at this type thing has been unavailable. I have the Service Letters/bulletins printed for reference. Above posted information will help. If/when I can get to it and find out anything, I'll post. The way it's going now, it may be over the winter. Will try to heed to the advice on unlocking the tarnny; I did not try to move the horizontal levers when this happened to me, only the linkages and that did not work. Precarious because I was on a hill and pretty much in the middle of the road

  5. Looks like I'm just going to have to dive in and try to fix the contrary stick shift. So be it.
  6. Found the following website on another forum and inquired about the Packard 8 to auto under product development, but apparently this has been designed for a 50s Packard engine but which one unknown. But the email I received back requested a sketch of the bellhousing bolt pattern and crank bolt pattern for the '41 Packard 120 and am looking for that information.

  9. Seems reasonable. I own a '41 120 sedan. You might go check out Hemmings Motor News on line if you do not subscribe to it and see what others are asking.

    '56 BRAKE PEDAL ISSUES

    It's coming back to me now. When a previous interim failure of the brakes occurred a couple years ago, it was just impossible for me to remove one or two of those top cover screws even with an offset. There just wasn't physical access.

    '56 BRAKE PEDAL ISSUES

    Thanks Brian. As you know access even to the MC cover is tedious due to steering column, air duct, and wires. With the cover off I can barely see the valve but will try that approach first. I think I see removal of the unit coming down the pike. Thanks for the input. And I have to remember to check Packard info site out. RO

    '56 BRAKE PEDAL ISSUES

    OK, thanks. I believe I have to get into the plate on the floorboard for access (cannot specifically recall) but I'll pursue that. Hopefully will not have to pull the unit out as the brake lines are always a hassle due to limited space.
  13. For the second time in a the last two years, the brakes on my '56 CC went to the floorboard just after starting out and this time it was a little more significant because of the hill I was going down. A couple years ago the problem just unexplainably went away next time I drove the car. This time I pumped the brakes a few times and got the brakes back and had no further problems including on an even more significant hill. Indicative of air getting in someplace I suppose. But the second problem this time is the brake pedal will not return all the way and I have to ease it up with my foot. Ther
