    Just caught this thread and gotta give it to ya nice work. Not exaclty sold on the front end setup looks like you aint got much travel goin up without hitting the steering arm or axle but hopefully it'll work for ya. Good luck

    it'll work just like a "normal" suicide mount.

    true, and true.
    except that in this case, a flat tire or bottoming suspension can set the low frame horns into pole vault/ jousting mode... it could get ugly...

    The radiator will sit behind the axle and in front of the spring mount

    I haven't seen many pics in here, so here's mine. It was a 4 door, chopped 3 1/2 inches, filled roof, back door, it'll be a flat head with a 5-speed, dropped axle, 8" rear, full fendered, '32 grille shell and gas tank in rear. I hope to drive it this year. Wish me luck.:D

    nice work so far
     
  26. Any updates???

    BTW, I was looking thru some old magazines and noticed that Pinkee's Rod Shop used the same front spring arrangement (suicide bracket underneath the leaf spring stack) on "Loaded", their '28 RPU.

    The spring doesn't know (or care) if it's bolted above or below the bracket.

    No pictures, but here's a link:

    Nice build!

    I used a similar setup for my front spring and I have to tell you, you seriously have to make sure you get the frame right the first time. You can't shim it as easily to adjust the ride height... unless you want it lower. Mine puts the crossmember SUPER low. It's almost below the scrub line. It makes me nervous for sure. I'll never build a front suspension arrangement like this again without making a way to adjust it easier.

  28. I've heard this pole vailt theory relative to scrub line many times.
    My opinion is that the vehicle would only pole vault if the frame
    dug into dirt surface or very uneven pavement. More likely scenario is
    it will simply skid-scrape to a not very controled stop. That was from
    personal experience!
    jtille;
    excelent craftsmanship and sound engineering. Enjoying the build.
