Thank you all for your help. My '72 280 SEL is absolutely super. I replaced the heater blower motor, got the clock repaired, refinished all the woodwork, repaired the windshield washer system, replaced the injectors and sensors, and finally figured out what was causing the smoke now and then - valve seals, which also have been replaced. The car now looks and drives like a new car, and it constantly turns heads. As someone who has collected once "out of favor" Packards which have now appreciated nicely, I think the '72 280 SEL will see the same thing happen. I couldn't have done it without the help I received on this board.
