Re: broken screws in oak, drill or give up?

Pre drilling (OMG) will help. There are chart's that show different size drills to use with hard wood and soft wood.

Re: Front cross member needed badly

How big of a crack and where? Strength, now and in the future, may be stronger by welding than replacing with bolts. If you are going to replace use rivets. IMOH

Re: Assembling rear brakes - is this correct?

Correct on the service brake arm. Dust ring value? - questionable.

Pin - equal amount on each side and peen or press upsets on each side.

Grease the shaft before installing.

Lug nut washers

Wheel holes are good. Will lug nut washers help to keep them like that or are they a bad idea for use on good holes?
