After a couple of weeks of frustration, we finally began some calibration runs with the Packard today. The frustration was caused by the installation by parties unknown years ago of jets that were way too large in the carburetor. It sure does run better when the jets are the right size. Also had trouble with a new master cylinder that had a small leak through the casting of all things. I had adapted a new dual circuit master cylinder to the car for improved safety. I kept thinking it was my problem with the lines etc. Anyway, a new master cylinder seems to have fixed the problem. So now everything is about ready to go. Some more calibration runs, more miles for reliability and then it will be time to load up and head for Chattanooga. Can’t wait to get started.
