I expect Erik Barret can also do it properly.

I've traded emails with Erik but he is 6 hours away, Katzorke is even further. Erik thought there was someone in S. CA who could do the straightening ergo the posting. However, I do thank those who took the time to respond as it is greatly appreciated.
After 25 years of running my T a lot, I'm having new Babbitt poured and a new crankshaft installed. Knowing I have hit lots of pot holes in the road, pan straightening is on my list of things to do. Now it is just looking to find someone reasonably close.
