I know there is probably an order but don’t remember. Tune your C pedal first. Do the fourth and then the fifth. Check your tuning after each adjustment to make sure you are on track. Then do your ...

When I checked LP Discography it gave me these:
Billy Robinson, Jimmy Day, Bob Foster, Bud Issacs, Sonny Burnette. So out of those I guessed Billy or Bud.

Forrest if what you have is a Silver Face Twin Reverb try popping up the mids to around 8. Try your lows on 5 and your treble on 3.5. On tube amps mids can be your friend.

Can one of you go into a bit more detail on how to make this work? It sounds like you are using the hex on 9 to make a half stop for string 2?

The changers on this vintage are perfect. You only need a single/single changer because the barrels do all the work. You can have endless changes on one pull rod.
