1948 Packard 288 cu in voltage regulator

While starting, there’re was a bright flash on the regulator, the cover was off, I turned the engine off.
The ammeter has pegged out on charge. The right coil points have frozen shut. I turned off ignition and next morning my battery drained completely to 0.
One question is what happened?

I read that Napa has a replacement VR. Does anyone have the correct Echlin model number?
Just another roadblock on my journey to get this car on the road.
