Re: Steering column bracket

Those clamps are available from every supplier and at every swap meet you can go to. Pretty easy fix. If it was mine I would convert to the late 31 column drop and avoid the gas tank altogether.

Re: 28/29 brake hub

These are steel drums right??? I don't think you turn them like you can the cast iron drums. There isn't enough meat in them to cut out.

Re: 28 AA front axle

Keep in mind the AA perch pins are different on the AA from the passenger car. the 28's had front shocks and the ball is up a little higher than on a car.
