For the 22nd Series, there were 3 small jewels for indicator lights in the lower centre of the instrument cluster bezel, red on the left for high beam, green in the middle for the R-9 overdrive and amber on the right for the directional signal.
The receptacle for the overdrive indicator light in the was eliminated from the rear cluster housing after the R-11 overdrive was introduced but the 3 jewels in the bezel remained.

Packard did not change the instrument clusters until the 23rd Series came out but left them the same as the earlier 22nd Series when they changed over to the R-11 overdrive late in the 22nd Series. The indicator light for the R-9 was just not used or installed for the R-11.
The R-11 was a factory change.
Looks like someone installed a later instrument cluster in the auction car.

Here is what the starter switch looks like on a 2 barrel carburetor. The 530S single barrel will be similar.

Ramcuda,
The 385S will probably be OK in the short term. The venturis are the same diameter but some of the jets are different, so not ideal but may still work.

Chris,
The main difference on the 530S from the 477S is the presence of the CarStarter switch which is redundant for cars with a pushbutton starting switch. The remaining specifications are pretty much the same.

Good info, thanks Brian. Any idea where a guy can get a rebuilt 477S up here? Chris


No, I don't know of any sources in Canada.

Carter is the preferred replacement for the original Chandler Groves carburetor and the following model numbers will work:

WA1 Model 359S which was superseded by 477S
WA1 Model 477S is the best replacement
WA1 Model 530S may work but the linkage to the accelerator pedal could be different

The Stromberg Model BXOV-26 was also used on the 6 cylinder cars

There is no mention of tolerances on brake drums in any of the Packard specifications or service literature that I have been able to find.

I do have a question concerning the document that you sent. Did it come from the Packard Proving Grounds archives? I've looked at the information stored on this web site and could not locate it. So, from where did you get this which might then give me another source when I'm looking for something.
Thanks.


The information is from Service Letter Vol. 10 No. 7 dated April1, 1936 and can be found on this site under Service Letters on the Home page.

AC parts must have been shown in a separate list as there are none shown in the 20th Series parts list

No, the transmission case is different for overdrive.
