Had a couple minutes at lunch to look closely at the car as it stands now. The fuel pump/vacuum pump had no vacuum lines attached to it at all. The fitting on the manifold (below the base of the carb) has the large tube attached to the top, which goes to the brake booster and vacuum tank. The tube to the power brakes is capped off since the brake unit was removed some time in the past.

The smaller fitting is routed to the wiper motor. I'm assuming the line from the vacuum pump is supposed to connect to this fitting, and the other line from the pump goes to the wiper motor (like Howard said).

I'm seeing lots of oil contamination around the base of the carb, probably due to the oil getting sucked into the fuel. I'll pull the carb and clean everything up. I have new oil, just need a filter, then I'm draining everything and starting fresh. Lesson learned.

Not clear, 254525 came from the motor or the vehicle number plate?

EDIT. OK, your photos clarified it. Thanks. Your thief-proof number places your car at just past the midpoint of Sixth Series production.

Sure, the serial # is 254525 and the firewall is 029338.

Burr, care to provide the body serial or thief-proof number? That is the large 6-digit number embossed into the cowl.

The number you provide in the first post and call a serial number can be either a motor number or a vehicle number depending on where you found it. Packards didn't use serial numbers but rather vehicle numbers which were stamped on a brass plate on the cowl. Care to clarify where your number came from?

Acc'd to Kimes, the 633 was introduced August 1, 1928 and was produced until August 20, 1929. Motor Serial numbers are 233017 to 276166. Assuming the engine is original to the car, an early number would indicate your Packard was built in 1928.

Packard did not I.D. by model year until late in the game. In the '20s the cars were identified by Series, yours being the Sixth. It is entirely plausible that the original title stated the date of purchase as the "year" of the car.

Thanks! So, it could be a 1928 633. It does have a 8 cylinder.

Thanks Gary, you're speaking of the two listings with forged rockers by Pack120fan (Ulrich): 1930-36 Super 8 half set and 1932-39 Std/Sup half set - levers good for 384?

John,

Appreciate the quick response. I did check out that information but, was only confused more. The title I have says 1928 633 but, the 633 was 1929. Do you know where to look for the body number?

Thanks!
Burr

Many Sixth series cars were produced in 1928.
