The Chilton's books I've seen have some good Info but are very generalized and don't have complete procedures. They are a good place to start and they will let you know what questions you need to ask, somewhere else. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

The seller responded that book contained no Packard specific information. But I found a Motors Repair Manual that covers 1940-1954. The seller for that says it contains the following sections just on Packards:

Body, Brakes, Clutch, Cooling System, Electric System, Engine, Engine Oiling, Front Suspension, Fuel System, Gearshaft, Overdrives, Rear axle, Shock Absorbers, Specifications, Steering Gears, Transmission, Tune up, Ultramatic Drive, Universal Joints

So I hope between this and the Packard Service manual and you guys I should be in good shape.

Ok I secured a 1940-1954 Motors manual and also a 1953-1962 Glenns's Repair Manual. So between those two and the factory manual I should have some good reference material as I go through the mechanical systems on the car.

On another note, we had a party here at the house last night. At about 10pm I went out to garage to get some more ice from our other freezer, and before I knew it I had 20 guys looking over and asking questions about the car. Alot of them had never a straight 8 before, and with the front clip off they got a good look at it. Even with the car in its rusty disassembled state, the guys really liked the car. About 30 mins later the wifey was yelling at me as all the guys were now in the garage, and she was still out of ice... <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

Yes, It's surprising how many people have never seen a Packard and even More surprising how many young people have never even Heard of them. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />
