Re: Pic of #4 rod/bearing.

The bearing doesn’t look bad. As others have suggested, clean it up and see if you can set the correct clearance. I like to use Plastigage for this.

Re: Replacing Rear Drum Seal

I use a big screwdriver to remove the seal. Brattons and other suppliers sell a tool to install the new seal to exactly the correct depth.

Re: Replacing Roadster Door Lower Seal

The new seal slid in the channel pretty easily. However, the passenger door does not have an old seal or channel - no evidence a channel was ever present.
