As far back as the history of vehicles goes, manufacturers have found it necessary
to employ high-priced workmen to stripe and finish the product. Striping
was just as good and no better than the disposition of the operator. It remained
for Packard to invent, design and patent the simple apparatus illustrated in this
picture for striping Packard bodies

This illustration shows an operator in the Packard factory using the Packard
striping machine. Much more than hard-to-control hands is saved, and again - a
better job is accomplished by this ingenious device.
Time formerly required to stripe an average body has been cut from 2 hours to 15
minutes.

This is a diagram of the controlled outlet used at the various stations requiring
frequent lubrication. Each outlet controls the flow of clean oil to exactly the
right quantity to each wearing surface. In addition to being metered accurately,
the oil is strained through a bronze screen and also through a pledget of cotton
before it is delivered to its destination. Clean oil is the only sure method of
reducing friction to the minimum. A car without centralized lubrication is not
a modern automobile.

Internal, expanding, self-energizing, three shoe brake used on all four wheels
of Packard vehicles. The cam at the top of the photograph spreads the two upper
shoes. This action on the upper left shoe which is not anchored to the backing
plate forces the lower shoe against the drum. The braking action is aided by the
rotation of the brake drum - thus a moving car creates its own braking energy.
Note the simplicity of construction and the constant pressure of each shoe against
the drum. Today's higher speeds demand better and more dependable brakes

This illustration outlines the oil flood valve and piping that provide -the extra
lubrication for the cylinder and piston surfaces while your Packard motor is warming
up. This device accomplishes automatically with the pulling of the choke-rod
further pocketbook insurance for Packard owners. With any motor at rest, the
cylinder walls and piston surfaces have a tendency to become dry. Then, with
the rich mixture, necessarily used in starting, this dryness is aggravated by the
presence of unburned fuel. The warming up period is no longer a period of destruction
to Packard owners, due again to the simplicity and excellence in design of
this capable oil flood valve. It reduces cold motor cylinder wear to the minimum.

In this department the motors, 82 at a time, are limbered up, being driven by an
electric motor for a minimum of 9 hours. They are then placed on a dynamometer
rack where they, in turn, drive a motor carrying an electrical resistance. Here
the horsepower, compression of each cylinder and general perfection of the motor
are determined. The valves, oil pump, carburetor, fan belt, spark plugs, distributer,
etc, are adjusted. Then, the motor is again torn down when a final
inspection and oil pressure bearing tests are made. After re-assembling, the
unit is ready for the frame assembly line.

Packard manufactures its own differentials. After they are assembled, they are
placed on this continuously moving line and come from the assembly room into an
especially constructed silence chamber where experienced and very competent men
adjust them for tooth bearing.
Perfection in differential assembly-, as in the manufacture of other parts of an
automobile,, comes only through deep study and much experience.
Packard manufactured the first spiral bevel gear ever used in an automobile and
it is, in addition, a pioneer in the use of Hypoid gears in rear axle drives, all
of which is important to your prospect because these are vital pocketbook parts
where failure may mean much expense and loss of time.

Here is another special Packard designed machine to improve manufacture. One
hundred and sixteen (116) holes drilled in the cylinder block in one operation.
Top of cylinder, top of cylinder block, manifold side and valve cover areas are
all contacted at one time.
The effort of four operators and four machines is thus concentrated in one machine
and one operator, and again - a job is done better for the protection of your
prospect's pocketbook.

The high compression cylinder head chambers on all Packard oars are milled out
on this machine. Most manufacturers do not go to the expense of this operation,
merely leaving this compression chamber in its rough state as when cast. Nevertheless,
this final finish on all Packard motors equalizes the compression in each
cylinder and also minimizes the accumulation of carbon because of the smooth surfaces
obtained by this operation. The size of each combustion chamber is checked
for accuracy by testing the volume capacity with alcohol (plus or minus 5c.c.) and
must come within negligible limits.
