  1. Vacuum operated washer pump...
  2. Mine is self explanatory.... However I would prefer "Tom in Hawaii" instead. 🙂
  3. Hi Don, Seeking a wheel to carry as a spare. Would rather drive with five than four 😁. I certainly agree with the idea of shortening my original driveshaft. However, the condition of my overdrive unit is unknown and untested. I like the idea of going back to pre overdrive days in case I have a pile of old bones. Hence my desire to not paint myself into a corner, just yet . I may be interested in your non overdrive driveshaft, send me a private message if you have one to sell. Thanks, Tom
  4. I suspect that your rotor is grounding out, thus creating a path for the secondary current to flow where it should not.
  5. Inoperable driver's side ignition coil to distributor cap high tension lead? Lack of cap to rotor connection? Photos?
  6. Good day folks, I am seeking one straight and true steel wheel and driveshaft. Application is for a 1941 Packard 110 club coupe (1485 model). Seeking a shorter driveshaft for the future installation of factory overdrive. Wheel size is 15" (diameter) x 5" (width) - 5 holes on a 4 1/2" bolt circle diameter. Thank you, Tom
  7. Good day fine Packard folks, I am seeking one straight and true steel wheel and driveshaft. Application is for a 1941 110 club coupe (1485 model). Seeking a shorter driveshaft for the future installation of factory overdrive. Wheel size is 15" (diameter) x 5" (width) - 5 holes on a 4 1/2" bolt circle diameter. Thank you, Tom
  8. I may be interested in the distributor, depending on condition. Thank you for your preservation efforts!
  9. I like it! Can you get Elvira to drape herself across the hood? Keep up the good work. Tom
  10. Automatic transmission? If so, you may have an issue with the floor mounted shifter. You may need to adjust or repair / replace as needed. To those not familiar, these early 'Birds have to be in neutral in order to start. Silly, I agree. Best of luck.
  11. Can you also show us a picture of the right rear brakes? A photo of inside the drums would help, too.
  12. Hello and greetings from southern NH. First items I would check, if the car was in my shop: engine compression and vacuum tests second, if the first checked out OK: fuel pressure and volume test third: ignition system waveform pattern as viewed with an oscilloscope. Bear in mind that there could be a possibility of multiple problems / misadjustments that may mask the original issue(s). I suppose you could try a new Edelbrock carburetor, this might be akin to a surgeon giving you a new heart, without first running a battery of tests. Best of luck.
  13. Remove the tube and straighten the crimped over section. I use different diameters of sockets and a body hammer to bring the outside diameter of the tubing back into service. Do not over tighten that nut! Best of luck. Tom
  14. Not sure if your bellhousing is integral to the engine or not, but in the event that your bellhousing is a separate unit: Did you use a dial inicator while assembling the bellhousing to the engine? Misalignment of components could cause erratic shifting issues.
