Item 41 in the wire diagrams and radio sheets section on literature page is what you are looking for. It is unidentified on the site but is a SAMS for the 51-2 radio. Seems complete but during the scanning did have a couple of pages get out of order. http://www.packardinfo.com/xoops/html/downloads/RadioDiagrams.pdf

I have a number of Sams at home so when I return next week I'll look to see if there is one for 1951. I may also have a 1951 radio somewhere with it printed inside the back cover so I'll check for that today.

Hi Don,
I was able to find a schematic for the 1951 radio from the link Howard provided. The Photofact number is 160-7. My radio is the 416387 model without seek.

Thanks John

If yours is not working, it likely needs new capacitors. Pretty easy fix.

I haven't tried it Packard51, but I all ways like to replace at a minimum the buffer capacitor in the power supply on these tube radios. Usually it is just capacitors, sometimes a resistor that has changed value with age.

I take it these are a fairly straight forward removal from the car? Remove the knobs, remove the nuts, unplug the antenna and power to it. Any braces etc... That need removed?

Believe there is a bracket at the bottom which bolts to the dash edge and on some there is an additional strap on the back between the rear of the case and firewall area.

PTV if you are going to replace the caps in your radio would you please post a pic or 2 showing the changing and what and how many caps there are. I would like to try my hand at doing the same thing to my radio. thanks.
