Thank you! I'll be sure to do a little reading before I tear into that project.

I was working on brakes yesterday and this is the first time I've pull a drum and the brakes are brand new! I don't think they've gone more than a few miles!

Any chance you know part numbers for Front wheel bearing seals and the pinion seal? The parts cross-reference shows NOS17145 for front wheel bearing seals, but not sure about the pinion. Would like to get them before I pull things apart so I can get it put back together at the same time.

Speaking of rear brake drums, what are the chances of removing them without a puller? Not sure the last time mine were off, (the car is new to me) I suspect it's been decades.

Going to do a little parts shopping. Where do you think are the best places to source the following parts? I'm not building a show car, but not modifying it either.

-Master cylinder rebuild kit.
-Wheel cylinder rebuild kits.
-Brake hoses
-Radiator hoses
-Fan belt
-Spark plug wires
-Carburetor rebuild kit.
-Fuel pump rebuild kit.

This should keep me busy for a couple of afternoons.

Just picked up a '53 Cavalier with 70,000 miles on it. I'm new to Packards and I don't know much of the history of my car, but apparently it has been in storage for the past 40-50 years. To get my car running and reliable what items I should I refurbish, which should I rebuild, and which should I replace? TIA
