Re: First generation Rear motor mount

Here is a picture of the rear mounts (A-5090-B) in my December '27 Coupe. It has the rectangular cutouts 1/4" from the inside mounting side, which made them very prone to cracking and breaking.

Re: Tudor front seat questions

The picture you posted in #5 above is of my early '29 Tudor seat. All of my brackets are the forged type, not the stamped mounting brackets and rear cups.

Re: Brake backing plate

Often times on early 28's, the front backing plates were mounted with the heads facing out and nuts in. There were spacers on the early '28 grease baffles which made this possible.

Re: Frame welting application

You are correct. The rubber pads are tacked to the bottom side of the body blocks and sit on top of the frame. Any shims would also go between the body block and the frame.
