Ah, that's very helpful context, thank you. I'll try to set up the task myself and see how it works for me.
I think you will be amazed how simple the job is and how well it works.

I will be off line for a few days--I am going on a backpacking trip in the mountains. But I am sure you will have no problem getting the job done. But I would look for that one Stanley bracket as that is the one that lines up just perfectly. Sort of a weird coincidence how I just happened to have two of those and they are perfect as is, with where the holes are located, etc. for this job.

I should be back on line in about four days.  And thank you for your work on the Unofficial Service Manual.

Brian,

I am back from my trip. Did you install the seat modification  yet?

I found the hinge, but the pins were out of stock. I'll check another store tomorrow.

If you have trouble finding the pins, for now, just use a 2.5" or 3" bolt with a nut on the end.

Did you ever try it?

It looks like the correct hinge can be purchased here on Amazon.

No, I've been insanely busy. I can barely think to document the hacks I have done.
