I don't believe anyone sells a new kit for a DYI approach to rebuilding the wiper motors. Occasionally some old Trico kits hit ebay but most likely gaskets and soft parts would be thoroughly dried out if you did find a kit for your particular motor.

About your only practical option for a reasonably fast and decent job would be to send them to Ficken Wiper Company at the link Joe provided. For a relatively low cost and decent turn around time, the return of a like new motor is well worth it and Ficken's rebuilds are highly recommended.

Are the ‘48-‘50 motors Trico? The one in my 1948 was not which was a surprise as I sent it off with many other later motors to be rebuilt by Trico themselves back in the day when they still did that sort of thing. They returned it untouched.

According to this Trico Catalog https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/dow ... 5-51TricoPartsCatalog.pdf the factory supplied Trico motors for the 22-23 series Packards.

I have no idea how many companies might have built vacuum motors but don't remember reading of any shortages or substitutions that might have required a temporary change like some of the prewar shortages of clutches or other mechanical items. They did make a change in motor location during the 22-23 production but I think that was just a matter of different Trico parts. Perhaps yours had some aftermarket repair part installed.
