29 626 transmission shift play

Had the gearshift lever out of my 29 and after putting it back in, way too much play. Is there some sort of shoe that might have fell out?

I ran out of inside space and bought a refer semi trailer. Took the axles out and set it down on blocks and built a ramp to it. I have my 29 626, 32 Ford tudor and a 55 bird in it. The refers do not sweat like storage containers and also are reasonably mouse proof.

Re: '29 Pilot Bearing

Not sure if the 626 has the same bearing as the larger cars but the parts book will give Packard numbers for both. A established bearing house should have some cross reference books that may cross your bearing. You could always have an oilite bronze bearing turned to fit or just take the id and od of your bearing to a bearing house and let them get you one that is the same.

Heater may be stopped up, I had one that I had to take out of the car and back flush it with pressure, rusty goo shot up in the air three feet when it broke loose.
If your car has run fine in the past that is one thing, if you have aquired the car and do not know the past history, another thing. Usual suspects are, time retarded, loose fan belt, air in block, blockage in hose and rad core stopped up. Do not know about the 34s but 29s have a honeycomb core and once stopped up do not unclog. If your 34 does not have a tube type radiator I would be suspect. Pull off the hoses and adapt a good running water hose in the lower hose, lots of duct tape will work and turn the water to it, water should pour freely out the tope hose, if not you have rad problems. Of course a leaking head gasket will cause problems and is usually evident once the engine reaches operation temp by the presence of bubbles in the water.

Rob, You have the makings of a fine car there. The 626 is a fun car you can spend some on and have a lot of enjoyment from. I recommend ordering the owners manual, parts manual and repair manual. These will orient you to how to service and operate your car. Your car has some neat draft deflectors, and accessory and cowl lights which jazz it up a little. I have a 626 totally original which I have made road worthy and it is a fun car to have.

6th series rods and pistons

Jim Eubanks
I have read the repair manual and still do not know the answer, can the piston and rod be removed thru the top (head off) with the 626 3 3/16 bore engine? Book talks about pulling the cyl off the crankcase with rods and pistons still on the crank. The "Packard Paddock" website has the cyls being removed. I asked him about that and he said the engine was coming out and all the way down anyway.

Re: Engine Motor Number Photos Needed

Owin, I know this has been discussed before. Engine number, frame number, steering gear number, Firewall vin number plate and theft proof number. My 29 has a correct number that matches the title on the firewall tag, different number on the frame and steering gear and as of yet, no number found on the engine left front leg. So, what is the relation of these various numbers, especially the firewall tag versus frame number?

I had a problem like that on my 29. I put a ceramic filter in the sediment bowl under the autovac. Car had set for a while while radiator was out. When I put it back together and test drove it, first had what I thought was autovac problems, engine would surge then discovered the vacuum wiper hose was off next to the wiper motor. That fixed then discovered car would shut off at speed. Removed that ceramic filter and she runs like a top. Really did not need it now since enough fuel had run thru the system since I cleaned and lined the tank that no further trash is coming thru.
