You might consider the Nathaniel Dawes book, "Packard 1942-1962". Decent coverage of the '42-'47 models, and good appendeces.

WOW, what a creature!! Am I seeing it correctly, the nose, hood ornament, hubcap on front seat and bumpers appear to be ZIS 110, balance of the body appears to be an earlier (1938?) senior Packard? Spacing between the brake and clutch pedals and cane shift shape suggest non-Packard driveline? I'm anxious to hear more about this one, clearly a Russian/American mongrel!

1942 180 Packard upholstery material was a pure wool broadcloth. Best source is probably Hirsch Auto in Newark, NJ.

UPDATE: Photo taken some years ago by this writer of the ZIS 110 hood ornament on Johann Berg's restoration project.

Thanks you, Chris. It's quite well preserved, considering it is more than 80+ years old. The fabric is a Laidlaw striped wool broadcloth.

Depends on the needs, can be anywhere from trivial and routine to very extensive, rewinding fields, repairing armatures, etc.

Do you have a Motor's Manual? That type of info is usually there. I'll check mine in the morning.

PS - Slot to the camshaft side, per Motor's Manual.

The piston expansion slot to the camshaft side of the engine is pretty much standard in all the Packard in-line engines after a change around the time of the 7th Series, give or take. You should probably check the shop manual just to confirm.

John, it's just that I've seen so many problems caused by misuse of silicone gasket sealant, that I wouldn't recommend its use anywhere. Especially, don't use on fuel systems.

As a Packard with an interesting ownership history, I'm curious why you've decided to dismember it.

Publishing a specification for engine torque was not a particularly common practice in the prewar era.
