Good to know, will recheck the torque after I get some mileage on the car.
Thanks!

Thanks for the help, finally got it to move the right direction with the Brake Spoon and quite a bit of force. Was able to get a screw driver along side to hold spring off star. Hub is now off, brakes look like new, I assume a light grease on shaft to keep hub from freezing/rusting to axle?

Now I am really in trouble, went back at it, trying to rotate the star wheel and cannot get it to turn in either direction. Wheel totally locked up, only thing I haven't tried is getting car down off stands and seeing if I can roll car to free brake. The brakes were working fine prior to trying to remove hub to repack bearings. Arg...

Appreciate it. I started on removal of rear hub and could not pull. Started to adjust star wheel to figure out which way to loosen shoes and it is locked up now. Star wheel does not seems to only turn one direction. It does not appear there is a locking tab to prevent it from independently moving in loosen direction. From the drawings I have found it appears the lower spring acts as resistance to keep start wheel positioned. I am working the rear passenger wheel, star wheel at bottom, able to rotate it down not up. Down appears to be tightening the brakes. Is there something I am missing to get start wheel to move in other direction?

Thanks. I had looked thru manuals but did not find anything specific, will keep looking. I appreciate your processes and will proceed in same fashion but keep looking for anything Packard published. I did not find a service bulletin on this but will continue my search.

Is there a procedure/manual on setting bearings after packing them? Or do you just snug up and lock the nut on end of shaft? Thought there would be a certain torque placed on bearing.
Thanks,
Ducky
