Kevin's Engine Overhaul Project

Engine Disassembly

With Kevin's Packard 352 V-8 safely in Craig's garage in Pahrump, NV, the next major step is to perform a diagnostic disassembly, meaning that as the engine was being taken apart, each part or assembly would be inspected for wear, breakage or other problems.

The Packard V-8 engine on its cradle prior to teardown. Notice the "dogleg" in the oil filler tube. This is to clear the aftermarket (dealer?) air conditioning compressor fitted to Kevin's 400.
