The Jalopy Journal
So long, thanks for the memories.
Join me on my own forum to ask off topic suspension questions http://www.industrialchassisinc.com/community/
I will no longer post any updates about this project here.
If you would like, follow my Facebook page or my website.
Going to do my best to keep this thing minimalist and clean too.
Cool, I suppose the guys at Lenco misinformed me when they told me it was possible to downshift even this particular model and that the only thing...
I have no idea what would prevent it from downshifting. It's a planetary trans, constant mesh sort of thing, like a Model T, and nearly every...
Since a Lenco trans isn't much more than a mechanical Powerglide, yes.
Yep, you got it.
Trying to actually work and post at the same time is tough.
crap, train of thought jumped the tracks.
Missed a whole section of the story. When we started the tear down of the Chevy into it's component...
Going to float this and see if it's permissible.
This project has had a very strange path and I think the customer and I have finally solidified...
Thank you gents for the kudos.
Most of what I do these days falls far outside the HAMB. For instance, a 1953 Studebaker with 2007 CTSV drive...
Been busy with off topic stuff, so been away for a while.
Here is some of the more "On-Topic" stuff.
Not building the frame, just the center bits. They would work the same if you lengthen the frame.
Or are you asking for a possible kit to...
Figured while I was at it, I might try and do a full bolt in 32 Style K-member kit to go with the new rear legs people had been bugging me for....
Customer and friend asked me to build him a Tardel/Bishop style frame. Couldn't leave well enough alone.
I have Alibre' Design 2012
I try and construct the rails with the fewest welds possible, but yes, flat plates bent and welded at the corners to...
Owner brought it down, not really sure how.
There is some benefit, but marginal at best. The weakest part of a '32 frame is the S-curve up and over the rear axle. If you were to do anything,...
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics:
The front mounts are bolt on to my Full-X:
Brought to me from Juneau AK, in tough shape. Was the original frame from his car with mods done by a local. Brought it to us to install one of...
Bob, you know this isn't the place to air this out. If there was a problem, why haven't you called me?
We never did anything to the Nash steering...
Yes, Towel City cheaters. Only have a mile on them so far. Tomorrow I reset the valves and finally get to actually drive it.
Here's the wrap up:
I opened up the hole in the backing plate to allow the pin to drop another 0.100" lower, did the whole procedure to align the...
Try this on for size. At first Richard said the pin was too low then backed up thinking about this situation. When he was first dealing with the...
Just spoke with Richard, gave me some ideas.
