Two stupid questions.
Quite a regular

I am restoring a 2150 lwb Limousine.

First question: Is this the left or right brakeplate? The small welded on bracket goes fwd or aft?

Second question: What is the size of the big grease fittings. They seem to be about 7/16 but conical and I guess 27 tpi. I bought 1/8 inch which are the only non metric available here in Sweden but they are a bit smaller.

Right side. Tab aft.

For the lubrication fitting, you'll need to identify which one(s). Here's a listing from the 1948-1954 Parts Manual.

Thanks for the information.
What I need is G119512. Seems the dimension is 1/8 NPT which is what I thought I bought when buying 1/8 inch fittings. Now when You have answered my question I have found the fittings I need on e-bay. I will also install the brakeplate on the correct side.
Thanks for information.
