That is a 54 only motor and relay box which had a two relays in the enclosure used for reversing instead of the separate but oppositely wound field coils most of the postwar Packard reversible motors thru 56 had. I think it might have been sourced from Autolite. Don't remember ever seeing one up close and have not been able to find a Packard wire diagram for that optional all electric seat. It would be 6v so I would consider that setup to be relatively rare. Some Ford products used the same motor/relay setup for both seats and windows.

It was going from head to water pump.

In traffic it would start to go passed the operating temp.

Are you bypassing the heater? If so, just plug each side.

The Jackard was bypassed as well with just a hose, which is shortcircuit of hot water back into the engine. I removed the hose barbs on the back of the motor and waterpump and replaced with pipe plugs.

Yeah, that's what I was wondering. That's the way to do it and how it was done from the factory for cars without heaters, as told in p. 12 of the Accessories section of the shop manual.
