Thanks Mal
No luck finding the on Max Merritt site
Those I found on the front brake setup. I have had no luck searching Max Merritt for those. I will try to find gasket material locally and make my own go Don’s route and contract Olsen’s gaskets
Is there someplace else they would be identified in the parts book?

Both Max and Kanter appear to have the kits for Group 12.0313 Rear Axle Seal which include gaskets. Didn't see any separate entries for only gaskets.
Link to Max Merritt
Link to Kanter
DIY gaskets would be much much cheaper and should work well.

The generator looks like a Delco which was rebuilt. I don't think the rebuilder's name on the tag has anything to do with the Chrysler Corp. The Delco generator would be appropriate for your Patrician. Chrysler products used an Autolite. Thanks for your updates.

Update:
new oil pump from Jack Vines installed, thinking of pulling rockers and giving them a good cleaning before startup.

I am in need of some brake drums, mine are worn beyond all hope, no luck sourcing locally. Mike Dulinski hopefully to the rescue, again. if the shop wont resurface them I don't know what to do. is there any point in continuing with out brakes? and yet I am

my version of the TL holding tool, a pipe hangar and some threaded rod. currently on the parts car as I removed the lower
A frame to replace the pooched one on my car(hope it holds)

received my bushing kit from Dwight Heinmuller

Awaiting a shipment from Tucson Packard


Torsion level links??? when I look at parts book it mentions links with 1, 2, 3, & 4 grooves. the links on my car has 2 grooves, the parts car has one with 5. is this correct? how much will putting them in my car raise it? maybe save an oil pan from road rash?

also discovered crawling under the parts car these revised adjustable compensator transverse load bars

That is really interesting.
I wonder who had that car, and did the modifications?

Unknown as to who is the architect of that was LTRD

Can’t find anywhere, where the load arm links had 5 grooves
