If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

Hey guys. I picked up my wheel cylinders from Carquest, but didn't have time to put them in until now. They are a different part number again, but I didn't want to post until I had made sure they would fit. So, to that end, these are Wagner numbers. If you check my post from Nov. 12/12 you'll see that Federal Mogul couldn't cross the original casting numbers. Go figure.
Here's another set of numbers to use to get front wheel cylinders, which I assume will fit 48 -50. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

Front left - WC14493 box also showed F14493
Front rt - WC14494 " " " F14494

Hope this is a help to others.

I am new to Packards and this site. My car is on the road, but has some minor issues. I have been reading and posting questions. The people here have been most helpful with information and advice. Thank you to all who contribute in this unselfish manner. And thank you to Kev for having the presence of mind to put this great web site together and the perseverance to see it through to what it is today.
Cheers to all that have made this site what it is today.

Went to NAPA this morning and they wanted just over $48.00 each. Yikes! Still cheaper to buy them here and not have to pay shipping and customs. I also checked with Carquest. Numbers are as follow:
Frt Lft EW155998
Frt Rt EW155999
R left EW74995
RR EW74996
The adapter was about $5.00. Front are about $37.00 each and the rears are about $13.00 each. Please note that these are Canadian funds. So I ordered the front ones. They had the rear on the shelf.

Ross - Thank you. I will be calling NAPA tomorrow with these numbers. I was on their web site and found it all. The next logical question, to me and my addled brain anyway, is what about brake shoes. If I may impose, do you have numbers for them also? Thanks again. Really appreciate the cylinder info.

I still need some help for wheel cylinders for my car. I did an internet search using the wagner numbers that BDeb provided with not much sucess. Only to the fact that they chase back to now being part of Federal Mogul. I contacted them with those numbers. Here is what I got back in the e-mail. Quote - I am sorry, but the wheel cylinder casting numbers you gave below do not interchange to any current product, also check by application and we do not offer any wheel cylinders, did show some wheel cylinder repair kit, but you will need to call the Federal-Mogul Techline at 800-325-8886 and press option 2, as there are other question to see if we offer the right kits.

So I guess my next question is, if replacement cylinders are not being purchased from the Packard sellers and going after market, per se, like NAPA, then what numbers are being used to buy them? I can buy wheel cylinders for more modern cars for about $20.00 each. I have a hard time accepting that a wheel cylinder for my 49 is 45.00. I just want to explore all my options here in Ontario before I go another direction. Already looked in to sleeving. Absolutly a stupid price. Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

I have tried the Wagner numbers and the guys at NAPA had no listing. Doesn't mean there not out there or a cross reference. Half the fun is the search. I need to replace the front ones as I currently have one that is stuck.

Would you mind checking if I have done this properly?
Front left 302948, and right is 302949
Rear left 302050, and right 302951.

Do I use the the chassis number the same way throughout the manual?

Thanks again for your help.

Hello All. I'm looking at the parts manual for my 49 Deluxe. I am trying to determine the part number for my wheel cylinders. I understand that the vertical row of numbers on the very left of the page are the part numbers. How does one use the info in the next colum over to determine the car. Mine is a 2362 with body number 2301. Thanks for your assistance.

Re: Dash switches

The heater box is part of the car. Long and narrow running under the dash on the firewall. The fan/housing is on the outside of the firewall on the passenger side
I can hear the fan running, but its very faint. I'll post a picture of the switch under the dash later. When the snow finally hits here, I am going to remove the damaged fan switch and see if I can repair it get the fan to work as the owners manual states. Push once for hi, twice for low, and third time is off. Haven't noticed an underseat heater. The front lower portion of the front seat has no cut away for air movement. I would assume that's how it's done, as I've never seen one. Does an under the seat heater blow to the back seat? I've been under the car and there's no hoses, again if that's how is done. I'll also check the wire. I appreciate all of the assistance. This is a new car to me, and I'm trying to learn all of the qurks and eliminate the incorrect issues it has.
