might want to look at this vid for homebrew cone/well fitting to finetuning. It'll probably take such a fitting or possibly a new cone to reach its full potential, but you are well on the way. Takes guts to mess with cones and such but it's well worth it.

Here is some info on Dobro serial numbers:

1974-1979 OMI Dobro: Y (#)### D configuration.

Y is last digit of the year (if this number is "3" it is actually 1974).

D is body type: D=wood, B=brass, M=steel or mandolin.
