The Service Manual specifies 110 to 125 ft-lb torque for the bushing nut in the idler lever (Specifications Section).
Nothing is mentioned about the position of the idler arm with respect to the mounting bracket but I believe that it makes sense to bottom out the bracket in the idler lever nut and then just back it off until the bracket reaches the most obvious mounting position against the frame rail with the steering centered. That should allow enough leeway for full travel of the steering linkage.

Wheel #2 is not Packard. Looks like a Buick rim.

The earlier R-11 will bolt up to the later transmission case as the splined extension on the transmission mainshaft for overdrive is the same for all years, so an easy changeover.

I have 3 used Auto-Lite IGP_4502-E distributors that came from another Packard parts collector many years ago. They all have late 1953 date codes.

Some clarification after further checking the parts list:

I was incorrect in stating that the 1951 overdrive transmission was different than 1952-54. They are all the same for the standard model cars.

What is different for the Henney cars is the sliding output shaft and flange (Part # 426944, Group 3.236) which mates up with a Mechanics u-joint rather than the Spicer u-joint used on the standard models.The rest of the unit is the same as the other cars including the longer housing. Unfortunately that output shaft is unique to the 1951-54 Hearse & Ambulance chassis so probably almost impossible to find.

It would appear that the transmission from your car was replaced with an earlier type at some point.

The transmission with the shorter case in your photo appears to be an R-11 unit rather than an R-9 as the R-9 has the lockout lever and solenoid on the right side where the R-11 has them on the left.

The missing part an the transmission that you just received is the lockout switch.

The overdrive transmission that you have been sent is the 1952-54 version which is different than 1951 which still used the shorter 1948-50 case for R-11 overdrive as shown in your photo.

Re: WCFB Carburetor Venturi inserts?

The Carter catalog for WCFB carburetor No. 2084S used on 1953 Packards shows the Primary side main venturi inside diameter as 1-1/16" and the secondary side as 15/16", so the inserts that reduce the secondary side inside diameter are quite possibly factory.

Re: 1946 voltage regulator

What looks like a voltage regulator with 6 terminals is the relay for an R-9 overdrive.
The voltage regulator is a separate unit with 3 terminals.
