Looks like a nice, clean Packard that I hope finds a good home. It's not a Classic, of course (no 1948 and newer Packards are Classics) but still a nice antique.

Keep in mind that the service manual photos and those in the Packard Servicemanís Training Manual were supplied by Bendix so are not specific to Packard. When rebuilding mine recently, I noticed several differences but nothing affecting the functionality.

Going from old memory, it should have the post as Chris described and the arm itself can be popped off the post as described earlier.

Donít run it until youíve determined the problem, especially the noise. Doing so may cause serious damage when it is likely something minor now.

This is perhaps not a great photo but it shows the piston down in the bore and once removed taking out the screws that can be seen and removing the steel plate, the seal just sits there. It should have no glue or adhesive of any sort but may be stuck with age.

Incidentally, the dust seal that is visible here on the shaft is not included with the kits but I have had some new ones made in case you want to replace that too.

James, some photos would help but, in spite what it says to the left, I am in the same area as you so can possibly even come by and take a look (if masks and social distancing can be observed). In the meantime, check my 1954 Patrician blog which is linked below where I was working on mine and I have quite a few more photos not posted that might help. That work starts around page 13.

Khaki is a color even though it is commonly used as a fabric type. It is an Arabic word meaning Sand Color which is typically a tan so your confusion is understandable! Iím not sure when or how (or why!) it became a type of fabric.

I've been using the 535 for decades and didn't know they had a transistor in them! Is that something recent? Mine have always worked well in my positive ground Packards.

Kevin, have you changed your bulbs to LED? If so, a mechanical thermal flasher will not work and you'll need to get an electronic one. The one in my 1954 Patrician came from the UK but I don't recall off hand the place that sells them.

The engine number sounds like 1938 (photos would help) and there is a chart here somewhere on this site that would help but I can never locate it other than by chance. Maybe someone has it handy but I canít find it. I donít know what kind of numbering earlier engine numbers had but 1938 started with A, 1939 with B, 1940 with C and so on but, of course, this number did not match any other numbers used and was only for the engine.
