Hello,
I have an original 1929 Parts book which shows the visual components of the CG-678 and the CD-777 and CD-800. I have attached pictures of both. Hopefully this helps.

John

Hey Henry,
I guess it is my turn to step up and try to help. I have mentioned in other posts that have an "unmolested" '29 Seven Passenger Sedan. Well, the wiring underneath my dashboard looks like it has been attacked by rabid mice, and as some of you probably know, the wire coatings in these pre-war cars tend to crumble in your hand after 90 years, when you touch them. However, having dispensed with the disclaimers, I would be willing to investigate the wiring in my car to see if I can help with the conundrum. If you would like to pm me, we can swap emails and photos and see if my car is in any better shape than yours. At the very least, the whole exercise may prepare me for the task that awaits me.

Hi,
I am by no means an expert on the late 20s cars. I have an unmolested 1929 model 645 7 passenger sedan (virtually identical to the "big" limo for '29). The instrument panel is metal painted in a woodgrain pattern. there is a strip of wood for the dashboard. I seem to recall either hearing, or reading somewhere that Packard used carpathian elm veneers for the wood trim on the late 20's cars, but I refer back to my opening statement.

Hi,
Why shouldn't you use silicone gasket sealant? Anywhere else it shouldn't be used? Thanks

Hi Owen,
Just curious, what is the concern with a stainless steel water pump shaft?

Hi Jim,
I am still looking for a few items for a 1929 645 Sedan. One of them is an intact battery box. The bottom of mine has rusted through, and I was going to undertake the unenviable task of re-creating it. If you have one that isn't corroded, I would be interested. Please pm me and we can discuss the possibilities further. Thanks!
John

Hi,
Bruce Blevins in Grand Blanc Michigan (blevins33@aol.com) makes all the drip plugs and connectors for the Bijur system on many of the pre-war cars, among a host of other items like shackle pins and various specialty bolts, nuts and washers. His stuff is extremely high quality because he is a machinist and he works from factory blueprints which he purchased many years ago. He is also a great source for those same factory blueprints which he will photocopy...for a price. If you send him a request for a blueprint for a specific part, try to get the factory part number from a catalog because he researches them by part number. They have saved me from a fair number of quandries as I have replaced missing and/or incorrect parts on my car. Bruce is spending less time on this part of his business and more time travelling, but his nephew is thankfully picking it up.

The Bijur Company is still in business (www.bijurlubrication.com) and has the original drawings showing which drip plugs are correct for each lubrication point on the early cars. If you email them, they will send you a copy of the drawing for your car. They were very accommodating a couple of years ago when I was on the same quest. You will need that drawing if you don't have it already as the replacement plugs that Bruce Blevins and Classic & Exotic sell match the plugs on the original drawings.

I have a sixth series car and the drip plugs do not come apart nicely to be cleaned, and replacing that tiny piece of wool crammed down inside is impossible on the early plugs. Unfortunately the plugs are made of aluminum and if you bend or damage them at all, they do not seal well. Good luck!

Yup,so there is at least one other car out there that has that same little piece bolted on to the end of that filter. Thanks for legitimizing my funky little part!

Hi,

I have an original owners manual published in August of 1928 for the sixth series cars, that for some reason actually shows a picture of this odd little contraption. I also have an owners manual for later in 1928 (again for the sixth series cars) which does not show it, on the same page!. I also have an original copy of the parts book. Packard continuously released updated pages for the parts book, so the pages in my copy range from 1929 to 1930, but it still has parts for the sixth series cars. Page 176 of the book shows the filter that Classic and Exotic is now making for the 1930 cars (7th series). Oddly enough, right next to that filter is a picture of the gasket for my crumbling valve (I included a picture because you just cant make this stuff up!). I am beginning to figure out that Packard made a change from the nuisance valve to the integrated unit some time between 1928 and 1930. Interestingly, the page in the book that references the oil filter for the 645 (updated to December, 1930) references the part in the picture, so unless I can find the "nuisance valve" that was clearly factory equipment in August, 1928, I will probably be investing in the updated canister which was in use in December, 1930. Wow, what a journey!
