I was wondering if, while i have the back wheels off ground, drums off, if I can turn on the engine, and put in to gear, and check the spin of the axles to make sure no visible wobble or warp,, or, is that just an stupid thing to do?  not putting on the on the gas, just checking on idle.. or, if that would do anything at all to figuring out my wobble before putting on the drums again.

Pass on running the car on stands

Just grab the axel and physically move it around to see if you feel less than a tight fit

Put it all back together and test to see if problem is corrected

Enjoy

Kim, take the tire off and put a few of the lug nuts on to hold the drum in place. Run at idle and check the drum and axle at the same time.

Ok.  Soon as i get them bk from machinist.  They are having trouble cutting new face in drum.  Ssid they are getting chatter and not cutting clean.  Thay have moved to the lathe to get more stable grip.  At least thats wat they say.  Hoping they dnt tear them up an i have to get new set. They are expensive

Be sure the car is supported well as you will need to get in and out of it --to run it in neutral --as that will be shifting the cars weight a bit
Putting chocks under the front wheels helps keep the car in place

Not sure what it is you are looking for by running the rear end in place like that

Enjoy

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
