The July/August 2018 Restorer has a pretty good article by Bob Grady and Alex Janke on axle straightening. Worth a look.

Re: Model A Tudor seat help

LOL......I was wondering if those were some sort of re-pop. After looking at your pics again I thought what the hell......it should not be cast but stamped steel. Glad you have it solved.

Re: brake linings

Were the shoes actually arced to the respective drums? "Almost all the parts have been replaced" That could mean different things to different folks. What type of lining on the shoes?
