Packard Water Pump Rebuild Kit

Recommended Posts

Where would one go to find a rebuild kit for a 1928 Packard water pump? I have greased mine and it continues to squeal. The grease is also running out onto the shaft. It appears that someone may have gotten a little aggressive with a grease gun prior to my taking ownership of this car.

 

Thanks,

Gary

I have found that a good machine shops can rebuild pumps of this vintage.  It may be that somebody tightened the belt too much or did not lube the bushing and it is worn with too much shaft play.  Also, the belt on a 528 is tightened by rotating the pump around one of the bolts into the block. Do you have a parts or repair manual for this car?  They are reprinted and quite good.

The Packard Club:

also has good information online and a forum that is useful.

I don't know anything about the vendor that @keiser31 recommended.

Good luck.

What was the cause of the squeak?  Front  bushing or something  else?  Also I would like to see a couple of photos of the block with it out and the pump itself (impeller etc).  It would be good information for me and others.  Putting it back on and adjusting the belt tension.

I would post on my 5th series Packard Facebook Page

Thanks.

Here is a picture of the motor with the pump removed. It is my "guess" that the squeal is coming from the front of the pump. I won't know until it gets taken apart.

Thanks!  Hope to hear what you find in the pump.
