Oil Level Gage - Packard Single Six - 1928 526/33
#1

As much as I love my my 528 and continue to enjoy driving it, I am amazed at the fact that checking the oil is essentially what you had to do in a Model T. With the fantastic engineering of these cars... really? no dipstick? I have seen what appear to be accessory level gages for the single six on photos of other cars. Can anybody provide me information on what options are available to make checking the oil easier in this vintage Packard? Photos, copies of accessory sheets or any information will surely be appreciated.
Thanks,
Rob

I am not familiar with that publication and will try to find it. Thanks!Quote:

After original Owen Dyneto factory information, the next best source of information would probably be the "Standard Auto-Electricians Manual". Mine is out on loan but several others who frequent this forum have copies so hopefully one of them will see this and respond to you.

Thanks. I did look at the diagram and it shows more information than the schematic in the Packard manual. Will look carefully at the drawing and see if it matches the words in the manual.

You might check the AEA drawings available in the wiring section at the PAC site. https://www.packardclub.org The generators are all shown with internal wiring and it looks to be the same for the 326 and 426. I don't find a wiring sheet for a 528 but there is one for a 1928 526/533 and if it is the same generator as the one shown on earlier models it is wired slightly different from them.

I believe Jason at AER is quite experienced with the Owen-Dyneto generators.

EDIT: Jason's website did not open for me this morning so don't know if his provider is having issues or the virus shutdown might have affected his business.

Owens Dyneto CG-678 Generator Internal Wiring Diagram (1928 - 526/33)

I am trying to rebuild a generator for my 1928 528. The Service Manual has a description of the generator and how to test it. The Parts Manual has photos of all the internals. However, there is no good diagram that shows the internal wiring. While it is a third brush regulated generator the description in the manual describes some unique features in this unit. What I am looking for is a diagram showing the internal wiring. Does anybody have any information on this? Know a shop who might have this information?

This generator was also used on a 326/33 and 426/33.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

Dell,
That looks like a good solution. That looks like a good way to go. Thanks.

Hi Rob; I used two pieces of 1 1/2 angle iron tacked together for the base, then used some 18ga with 5/16 holes in the center with 1/4- 28 nuts tacked over he holes. I tacked the 18ga to the lags of the angle iron to line up with drain holes in bottom of the box. In the pictures you can see the 18ga bent and welded to the fixed end and the removable end that attaches with 2 1/4-28 bolts in the drilled and taped holes. I hope this help and not difficult to build. Dell

This also has a 6v+ to 12- converter and a charger wired to the battery posts.

Dell, I would like to see what you have done. I do not have welding equipment myself but have access to somebody who does.
Thanks,

Howard - Thanks for some good options to pursue. I had not seen the battery box inserts on the Ulrich site. One of those might fit in the earlier space with some modification.

I have a new Optima battery for my 1928 526 Sedan. Since they are much smaller than the lead acid 6V, what creative ways have you used to safely install one in the passenger side battery box. I am sure solutions are good for many different models/years with this location for battery.

Thanks,
Rob

Based on the photo above mine was black. However, this is a 1928, 526 sedan. I have seen photos from a couple of other 526's and they seemed plain black like mine. No ribbing of any type.
