Panhead Rear Hub and Brake Set-Up

I want to get this rear axle, brakes and backing plate the best I can.  It's better to check it out this way before you get the wheel all done.  You can feel and check it more accurately.
Now I can check the drum, dust ring clearance and backing plate anchor tab.  All original parts !  It sure makes a difference, with fit.  H-D really had some quality control I've got to say. 
I snug up everything, and there's no binding.  Just a little drag from my new(kinda stiff) star hub cork seals.  The frame is straight in the back.  Axle right in the center of the slot.  No twist.  Now comes the hard part - riveting on my NOS sprocket and NOS dust ring - a two-man job.
