Re: 640 Battery

I`m using 6V lead/acid batteries. Batteries where I have the possibility to refill water and control the status of the battery cells. My batteries last for at least 6 years, and it`s only a question about maintaining the batteries.
I`m using a 165Ah, 6V battery, one of the largest you can get in Europe (EU.165-6V Exide Vintage). They will completely the space of the battery box.
Could start current capacity is 900A.

Aluminium Moulding on top of front seat back, open car before 1929?
#2

I have a moulding for the top of the front seat, in solid aluminium, for sale.
This moulding in aluminium has a slight different curve compared with the steel moulding for 633/640 Phaeton and 633/640 Touring

The overall width in front is 50 1/2 in.
The overall width in back is 52 1/8 in.
The overall length on both side (outside) is 8 1/4.

A more accurate pattern or dimension drawing can be made.

Top folding iron. Which year and body type?
#3
Quite a regular

Odd Moen
For some years ago I bought a 640 Phaeton project, mostly in pieces, including a complete set of top folding irons, which I later on recognized that did not belong to a 633 nor a 640 Phaeton.
Do anyone know if this top folding irons belong to a Packard, and if so, to which year and body type?

The top folding irons shall have 4 bows, and the irons have the appr same overall lenght (back to front) as for a 7-pass 633/640 Touring, but do not with for this body type.

It`s a special detail close to the aft bottom part, as marked on the attached photo, which can be usefull to identfy the the top folding irons orign.

Engine number including the letter C
#4
Quite a regular

Odd Moen
I came across a engine with a correct engine number belonging to the 1929 Super 8 series. But the engine number located in the front left motor mount include the letter "C" in the end.
What do the "C" in the end of engine number mean?

Re: Forged cam rockers for 1930 385

Odd Moen
A stamped rocker arm can be replaced with a forged rocker arm. For a 1929 I know that the forged rocker arm from e.g. 1934 is little bit longer, and then it is needed to change the position between camshaft and crankshaft with one tooth, to secure the correct timing.

Re: 1928 Transmission Bearings

Odd Moen
I can not remember that is bearing is within the transmission, Shouldn`t this bearing be the aft pinion bearing in the differntial?
Purchase a standard SKF millimeter bearing and grind it in a lathe, as I have done for all my Packard`s

Balancing connecting rods
#10
Quite a regular
Quite a regular

Odd Moen
Do anyone have any information about the maximimum difference in weight between the pistons and connecting rods from the Packard factory in the 1930, or which max weight difference between the connecting rods should be achieved by rebiulding a Packard engine today? On the today modern engine I have been told that the max weight difference between the connecting rods should be 1 to 2grams. But the Packard engine is a low speed and a long stroke engine. Should also balancing the connecting rods by weighing the big and small ends be performed on a engine overhaul today?
