Thanks again to Howard Hanson for the donation of this material.

For you Push Button Ultramatic guys out there Howard Hanson donated the Autolite Service manual that covers the service on the Push Button acutator motor and goes into some good detail on the entire system.

Thanks again to Howard Hanson for his continued generosity.

Thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it. No one else had commented on it so I starting to belive that either no one had read it, or at least had nothing good to say about it! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

I'm glad to find you found it informative. I plan on rebuilding my Carb soon, so if people like that picture essay format, then I will do the same with that also.

Well, always late to the party <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I also attempted to rebuild my carb last summer. Did a pretty miserable job I'm afraid. I wound up sending it to a carb outfit in Phoenix where they did a really great job on it.

I'll look forward to seeing your writeup on your carb rebuild. Next time I'll do it right!

Thanks, Kev.

Well I am back from Vegas so I have been trying to play catch-up.

There are a couple new things out on the website:

1953 Packard '300' Cavalier Road Test article (Thanks to John Shireman for this)

1940 Packard 110 Touring Sedan magazine Ad (Thanks to 'CONN' for the this)

Brian (BH) has uploaded pictures of full size clay models of the proposed 1957 Packard Models that were never built. These were designs for new Packard Models, not the rebadged Studebakers that ended up getting produced. Not sure if these were ever published anywhere, but if not you can now enjoy them on the website.

Also most of the pictures from the PI swapmeet have been uploaded for everyone to enjoy.

Well for those that havent noticed, there is a new menu selection on the Main Menu... 'Packard Model Info' out on the Website

This section of the website allows you to pull up detailed model info. Eventually we will have all the years online. Currently only the 1946-1956 years are ready for debut.

After selecting either a year or a series, you will get a model listing with a thumbnail picuture view. Clicking on that thumbnail will pop-up a detailed information windows giving you all the specs, on that model as well as running trim and body changes. Please read the information on the that first page and it will go into greater detail.

We are currently looking for people that wish to help with the pre-war years (1899-1942). If you can help please let me know.

I hope everyone enjoys this feature. This have been in development for a couple of months and 100s of hours of research went into it.

Special thanks to Brian (BH), John (Packard53), and Dave (Clipper47) for huge amount of support, and research they did to bring this all together.

Some of the AEA Tune-up and Wire Diagrams have been added to the website, also the 1955-56 Rochester 4GC Carb service information is now available. Thanks to Brian (BH) for the donation of this material.

Also for those that have not looked at the site in awhile, we have started a Packard Owner's Registry (Roster), where Packard owner's can add information and pictures about their own vehicles. Also owners can make changes to their information on the fly.

Am I missing something? I clicked on the review, saw that the product had been purchased, but no comment on how well it worked. Clicked on "more", but there was nothing more on the rust remover.

Click on the header (title) for the article and then it will open. At the bottom of the page there are navigation options to go to the next page. There are 6 pages are together. The 'more' option on the preview screeen simply shows you more articles. Not more of the current article.

I hope that makes sense.

Also the Predictor Dealer Car Brochure is online.

Now Online:

1951 Packard Sales Brochure (thanks to Tom Wolt)

1957-1960 Studebaker-Packard Service Bulletins (thanks to Dave Czirr)

While the majority of this information applies to 1957-1960 models, and are still several valuable pieces of information that apply to previous years (1956 and before). For example in Jan 1960 there is a note about a a replacement relay for the 1956 PushButton transmission system.

There are probably about 30+ Pre-War pieces out there right now. We are working on tying to find more for the website all the time. Obviously it doesnt compare to the 100s of Post-War pieces the website has collected. But the older the pieces are, the harder they are to find.

Also the Picture archive has some great Pre-War cars listed in it. As well as the wonderful cars that have been added to the Packard Owners Registry (Online Roster) from all over the world.

I am acutally in the middle of working on the Model Info pages for the Pre-War years as we speak. We got alot of great feedback and praise on the Post-War years, so hopefully the same rings true for the Pre-War years. I put the draft of the 1899-1910 model pages up last week. I hope to add a few years at a time as I can do the research.

If anyone has any original Pre-War (or anything Packard Related) materials that they are willing to scan and donate to the website, it would be welcome with open arms.

Everything we collect and get up on the website helps your fellow Packards owner out there, and the future Packard owners to be.

The mission statement for the website is to try to digitize as much of the paper content produced by Packard as possible before that paper is lost to the ages. The website is completely free, and I pay for most it out of my pocket with the help of a few folks that have donated cash to help offset the web hosting cost.

It has been nice to see over the last two years how many people have stepped forward to help out with donating content, doing research for the website, and also assisting people in the forums with their questions and problems.

It's been a great grassroots effort, and I hope it continues for many more years!!
