Peter,
To the best of my knowledge, all 6th Series 626/633 cars had the same engine bay length as the 5th Series 526/533 cars regardless of whether they had a side mounted or front mounted water pump. The front mounted water pump on the 626/633 cars was drastically redesigned to take up far less space than the pumps on the earlier cars so that the eight cylinder engine would fit in the space previously used on the 5th series 6 cylinder cars. The engine in the 6th series standard eights is a very tight fit, length wise.
David

I doubt you will find any wood patterns for your car, attached is the Packard body illustration for your model. If you have it professionally enlarged to the maximum size then draw scale grid lines on it using dimensions on the drawing , you can scale off missing dimensions.
Unless you can find an identical car with exposed wood this is about as good as you will get in my view.
The copy does not look very clear, send me your email by PM and I will try to send a better copy.

I agree with Peter, I have had the same experience with my 633's and the 126 but not as often.
Those starter motors are about the easiest to remove of any car in my experience. Just one easily accessed bolt.

Its many years ago since I set these horn buttons to work on my 2 633's and I regret not taking photos. The wire up the steering columns terminates with a tiny ferule soldered on to create a contact and to hold it in place. The insulating bush simply insulates that contact from the column and holds it in place.
The button has a brass screw under its centre that connects to earth via a washer under the top of the spring and the spring onto part of the steering column. The spring holds the button away from the live contact. When the button is pressed the spring compresses and the screw head contacts the wire completing the circuits.
Hope that helps.

There is a very poor illustration of this part in the parts book and it fits all 6th Series cars, part number 159707 copy attached

2) The spark plug on the fuelizer is not necessary and would likely cause vaporization issues in hot weather, it was needed when fuel was much less volatile. I have left the old one in my 126 with a dummy lead for appearance only. The fuelizer was discontinued shortly after the First Series cars.
3) When I rebuilt my 126 many years ago I could not find new spark plugs so I used modem plugs with an adapter to fit the larger threads. I believe the correct plugs are now available. The Autolite parts finder on line list the plugs as 3076
5) I have stripped many clutches for this model and always found them to be in good condition except for the large splined hub that fits to the transmission. The splines have always had indentations that prevent the plates from separating properly. I had my hub splines recut deeper and all new metal plates made to suit.
7) the attached sketch shows the engine mounting.

A copy of the original Packard parts book is very helpful with its illustrations, Merritt has them, they cover the 1922 to 28 models. A service manual is also available and worth having but itís not nearly as useful as the parts book.

I have sent you a PM .

The wire that runs up the steering column to the horn button is live so it needs to be insulated. Pressing the horn button shorts it to earth completing the circuit and powering the horn

I can confirm that the generators from a 1930 740, 1929 633 and 1922 126 all interchange mechanically. The generator parts of each vary considerably but the drive and mounting plates are all the same.

I use these instructions when adjusting the brakes on my 633 which I suspect is the same as the 533. I have had good results however I have never succeeded in having the brakes pull up absolutely evenly under all conditions.

These instructions are on this site, there is a lot of good information here.
