I believe that National 6005 is a rear axle inner seal, Packard part # 384121
and the 6009 is a differential pinion seal, Packard # 329655

A click and then no lights usually indicates a bad connection between the battery posts and the cables. Try a light sanding of the posts and the inside of the cable connections.

The 1951 Wagner brake catalog shows number FC3631 as the master cylinder repair kit for commercial chassis models. Diameter is 1-1/8"
Wheel cylinder diameters are 7/8" front and 1-1/4" rear.

Here is a photo of a 1955 tail light showing the grommet that goes through the hole in the body with the larger shoulder on the outer side
Installation at the factory would have been done by feeding the wire through the hole in the body from the rear and pulling the then soft rubber grommet in place from inside the trunk

The grommet is actually rubber, not bakelite so yours must be really petrified .
The electrical connector for 1955 is a spade type and not easily pulled through the grommet in addition to the wire being secured by the crimped fitting.
Best bet would be to chisel around the edges of the grommet from the inside to allow removal towards the rear and then use a sealant when it is replaced.

As I recall, you have to disconnect the connector from below the gearbox under the hood, then pull the wire out through the column. The other end has a bullet-type connector that should be able to slip through the washers.


And if you tie a piece of sting to the lower end of the wire before pulling it out you can untie to remove the steering wheel and then use the string to pull the wire back through the steering column.

Crater Lake in Oregon is interesting and if you get as far North as Glacier Park the Going to the Sun Highway (Logan Pass) is a must.

Yes, the single contact 1129 is used for the rear directional signal light

You need to remove the seat backrest cushion to access the nuts on the inside of the seatback frame

Thank you. Which years and models would it be from?


If 5-1/2" wide it would be for junior models up to about 1950

For 6" wide rims used on senior cars there does not seem to be a cutoff. I have seen this style as original equipment on a very late production 1955 Patrician
