Thanks for the Chart Dave, It is helpful and I would err on the side of caution with any settings. I am not sure which grade of material is used in the head studs but I shall call the previous owner's mechanic and ask him for the head torque settings. The matter is not pressing as there are no bubbles in the radiator flow.

Sounds like a good idea, I just thought that rather than re invent the wheel...someone may have already has been through this journey.

Hello all, I assume by the lack of response that no one really knows the 3 - 25 Twin Six head torque. It is definitely not in the Owners Manual. I shall therefore Torque to 45 ft/lbs flattening it out from the centre, as it appears reasonable for the head stud size. Any comments or notes of caution based on previous experience would be welcome.

Yes Mal, I have always wanted a Veteran Twin Six to complement the 38 Barrymore Twelve. It is a lovely vehicle and I am just fettling it a bit. It has Armstrong Power Steering and takes some shoulder strength to steer. All the best to you Mal. Peter and Ann.

Hello all, I recently saw a sale listing for a catalogue of 1956 Packard options that included seat belts. Has anyone any details on this option? Has anyone actually seen these? I am very curious.

Agreed, but the 4th/5th Series 6 was a truncated 385 motor with six cylinders of the 8 cyl 385... same rods, pistons, rings, valves bearings, etc. I have a few 626 motors with side mounted pumps in the shed. I shall take a look and measure up. Also later production Sixth Series motors used a larger engine compartment and front mounted water pump.
