Original factory lining lengths can be found in the Specifications section of the 1955-56 service manual on this site.
Front shoes are 2-1/4" wide, primary (front) lining 11-1/2" long and secondary (rear) lining 13" long
Rear shoes are 2'' wide with same primary and secondary lining lengths as the front

Yes, 1951-54 is different due to the motor mounts on the side of the block

It is probably the HC head for the 1940-41 120 models, original pert number 351243 superseded by 367636
367635 is the casting number which is often within one digit of the number for the finished part.

From the literature archive on this site, this service literature from Auto-Lite has a detailed description of how the 3 element regulators work.

I think that someone just put the wrong part number on it.
The 1956 Packard rear bumper centre is 6480085, not 6488085 which is a part for 1956 convertibles.

Hi Brian, Thanks for the reply - good to hear from you. This is the video I was talking about. I got to it from a link on Packard Info, can't remember who or where. Are we talking about the same '53?

No, the car in this video is a 1953 Cavalier which is one of the vehicles from the huge Abelove auction in Utica, NY
