Ken....I built a '91 Jag XJS rear. I centered the pinion between the wheel flanges by offsetting the right side pivots 2" and then shortened it 6...
'58 Pontiac rear suspension was very similar.
Like the coupe, Stu.....Welcome !
Any sprint car gear can be flipped over and used as right-side cowl steering.
Was going to build this 'til I bought the green one over on the left.
I mentioned Lubrication Engineers gear oil in a previous post (#24). It was the best lube I ever used in my sprint car quick-changes. I see that...

Beautiful job !!!
Try contacting him. That's my only DVD. I also have it on VHS tape but I'm reluctant to let that out of my sight.
I sent a DVD of Minnesota Dragways stuff to HAMBer "oldrodslive"....might be something there you can use. My partner and I ran an A/D there from...
When you decide on your design, I probably have everything you need. Bars, tube housings, bushings, arms, and stops.
I have one for sale that has a push-button on top and ratchet teeth at the lower end.
The rollbar and frame profile look a lot like my Speed Improvements kit car.
Welcome, Gordie.....staying warm ? :)
Welcome, Luke. We like T's up this way too. :)
5.175" X 3.1416 = 16.258" circumference. 10 degrees = 1/36 X 16.258 or .452".
Back in '67 and '68, when I traveled with a car show promoter, I got to drive the black car a lot. Even got arrested in it. :)
I drove the red...
