Thanks to all who replied and yes, I will keep it authentic. It is original enough to show with no rats nest of wires, odd plumbing or other modern Mods and I sure aim to keep it that way.

The water pump on a 626 is on the left side of the engine and does adjust the fanbelt, problem is that there is not enough clearance between the bottom of the rad and front pullem for a thick belt to pass even turned sideways. The linkbelt thing should work fine. Thanks, Jim

I am starting work on this car and will have lots of questions.
Heater connections:Can someone send me the proper routing of heater hose from the water pump to heater. Car has an after market vintage heater. Believe the water pump lead should go to a metal tube on water pump side of motor to rear of motor then a hose up to the top tube of the heater.
Top rain gutter/trim that holds top material on. Will have to replace fabric top and some wood. Trim piece appears to have a fabric rope pressed into it to cover attaching nails. Who supplies that "rope"? What is the correct top material?
Shocks: Have read other posts about shock oil, fork oil etc. On my early Fords we use modern 90wt. What was the original consistancy for Packard shock oil?
Temp gauge: mine is dead, fluid/either may have leaked out. Who rebuilds these?
Fan Belt: car had modern belt too narrow. I put a link belt on which works fine. There was not enough space to remove the modern belt between front pulley and rad and had to cut belt to get it out. Would you have to disconnect rad to put the proper belt on?

Location: I am near Knoxville TN, anyone around here that has experience on 626 Packards I can talk to?
