Ah, wasn't aware of a Regal Lancer. looks great.
Had a '57 Dodge Coronet back in HS. Not sure, but I think the Coronet had a shorter wheelbase ?
Great job on a great car, GG !
Is the car to the left in this pic a '57 or '58 Royal Lancer?
OP said the studs he had were straight....no knurl; so mgtstumpy's chart wouldn't apply.

I've used the 50/50 mix for quite some time.
Put it in a plastic squeeze bottle that has a long spout with a very small hole at the tip.
Turn the good plate edgewise to press against, and use the other bent plate as a support at the hub center, if it's reasonably straight. A bit of...

BG & S on Superior St has a good rep

If so, there seems to be a lot of those available....
Used the compound
It was turned between centers, not "chucked" on a big ol' American lathe.
I just kinda guessed where the center shown by the red line would be....
I made this anvil around 1972. The college had a bunch of surplus rail from somewhere and was free.
Couldn't pass that up.

An interesting film for HAMBers about Kearns;
And here I was always fussing around making sleeves to solder onto the tubing.
@Dyce Do you heat up the tubing while forming it ?
A few whacks with a soft hammer with the lower jaw in a vice will bring that into alignment; or some persuasion with a big Crescent wrench....
Those lube systems were more than likely Bijur. I don't recall if they used "std" 1/8" tubing; or something metric. Quite a few mfgs used the...
