    I just got a hold of a packard straight 8, and wanted to know what year and motor it is. The numbers casted on the heads are as follows 426408 288 std 327 at. Any Idea what year engine and if it is a 9 main or 5 main. Any help is apreciated. Thanks Looz Nutz:confused:

    What is the engine number? Casting numbers dont really help.


    the 356 cubic inch displacement engine
    from 1940 to 1950 has nine main bearings and hydraulic valve lifters.
    the exhaust pipe is held to the exhaust manifold by four bolts and nuts.
    288, 327 and 359 cubic inch
    displacement engine from 1948 to 1954.
    exhaust pipe is held to the exhaust manifold by only two studs.

    257 and 282 cubic inch
    displacement from 1935 to 1947. the cylinder head is 32 3/4 inches long.
