    Seat Brackets

    When I removed the brackets that hold down the front of the stock '56 front seat I didn't notice that they were different. Now when I decided to put the seat in, I'm not sure which one goes on which side. One has a tab on one side. I'm not sure if the tab goes forward or to the back. Can anyone help me?

    Tabasco,

    I've had a few of those brackets in my hand from several different cars, but I'm not recalling ever seeing a little 'tab' like is on one of yours. ??

    Thanks for the replies. The one with the tab also has the holes in a different place. Put it on one way and the seat won't go forward enough for the rear holes in the floor to line up. Put it on the other way and the seat doesn't go into the bracket very far. Maybe a previous owner replaced one with one from a different year car. I will dig around in my parts boxes and try to find one without a tab.
