The OEM gasket was a Victor 994, the replacement that didn't fit was 993. The 993 is about an inch shorter than the 994 which came out of a 1953 Clipper 288. Be interesting if some gasket expert can clear this up.

Thanks for all the responses!

After contemplating and debating in my mind, decided I will pull the engine out and get the block decked, cylinders honed, new valve guides, possibly seats as well and see what else may be needed

Question I have here is has anyone used a standard "modern" engine stand to support a flat six ? If not, what do you use?

Any recommendations for the rebuild is also appreciated. Machine work will be done by an engine shop, I'll most likely do all the assembly, including new pistons, rings, bearings, cam bearing etc

The Chico Concours has been held yearly since 1971. There are many high quality cars at the event each year.

It has the side mounts so would be up to 1950 and sometime in 1949, R9 was replaced to R11. If indeed R11, then itís 1949-1950. Before 1949, it was R9 and before that it was R6.

From an EBay post,
This auction is for a Packard R11 3 speed overdrive transmission. I believe these were used from the mid 40's through the early 50's. Overall it looks in good condition turns freely and shifts into the gears OK. I acquired this from an estate with a bunch of flathead Ford parts where it had been stored inside for a long time. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail. Thanks for looking.

TRUE?
Itís on the internet!

Well we decided to go for the restomod because my father is 74 now, Jack was his favorite actor and still is. I wanted to get this packard for him to drive but itís much to hard to drive and quite honestly doesnít drive all that smooth. A Lincoln chassis fits right under it, has air suspension, power steering, power disk brakes all the way around. We want it as a driver, a comfortable driver at that. The body and everything inside will be original, just a different power plant and frame. Sticking with the packard wire wheel set and white walls. Iím sorry you donít agree with what we want to do with it. If you know of anyone that wants the frame, motor, transmission and everything else bolted to the frame feel free to private message me. Thanks again.
