I went off looking for artwork in Packard shop manuals. The only thing I could come-up with is Figure 20 in the ’48 shop manual, section 6 (attached). I also started looking at rear brake photos of other cars I own. Seem the 51 years later (1999 Suburban) the e-brake lever is still mounted behind the shoe.
I think you’ve found the reason that the shoes would not retract to the correct diameter. I know I always try to put things back the way I found them, but your experience highlights the hazard that the person before us may not have been so motivated.
