yer im just a quiet lad, haha. had a little set back to night , relised the bar on top that carrys the shock needed lifted up about 1/2" as i could not get the calipers on , so i had to totally undo sundays work , the round bars are temp, just to hold the diff square , i need to drop the back end of the diff , as it's still high,

you can not see in the pic but i have put a 1/2" spacer on either side under the four bolts on the top , whats that they say , you learn the hard way?

i had the shafts done off my father inlaw , he's a fitter,and he used the big lathe at work , dowl in the center , then weld then a tube on top , then back in the lathe and spun , he said there ran nice and better that he expected, anyway i gave the diff a coat of black gloss and put it all together, and the total length came in at 52" , +3" per wheel = 58" total width, , i'm going to have to re make the top bar that carrys the shock as it's still not clearing the the hand brake mechinism! no biggy , that will not take that long , i ordered some left hand and right hand thread rose joints off ebay today , i'll buy some cds tubing and make some ajustable linkage bars ,skip says this will be the best way to square up the backend and give two solid points of contact .









this photo shows the brakes hitting on the top bar

i would just slide the bar back until the front holes line up with the rear holes on the housing and then weld another lenght of angle and drill some new holes that should work and no wasted steel?

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

i hate wasting steel, because its a hike to the steel factory to get new stuff and it only comes in 6 meter lengths , that means i have to cut it 3 times to get it home

the new ones are 900 bucks over here. unless you have someone that can machine you one. they are step on price unless you find a used one like skip did.

i'm a big guy and the steer wasn't bad on the 1200. but it maybe harder on the 1500 want know until it's built.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.
