Does anyone in Seattle have a big bearing Ford 9” narrowing jig I can borrow for a day?

    Trying to shave a couple inches off of my housing. Thought I had a line on one through a friend of a friend type deal. My friend has too many irons in the fire to line it up for me which is fine. Thought I would ask here and see if I can borrow one through another Hamber. Just don’t want to buy one since they are pretty expensive for something I wouldn’t use much.
    My housing is prepped already. Just need to jig it up and start welding the ends back on.
    Thanks

    A little advice. Install the line-up bar and bearing mandrels, tack weld the ends on. Remove bearing mandrels before welding any brackets to the housing. Housings always seem to pull when welded on, and it can be difficult to remove the mandrels and bar after welding.

    I leave the slugs in the ends BUT I lubricate the carrier, bar and end slugs with anything handy. Yes it can be a fight to get apart but loosening the pumpkin nuts and a little persuasion seems to do the trick..................................................

    Might give Dick Jaklewicz a call; Dick's Gear Works. He's in "outer Lynnwood" in the Floral Hills Cemetary area. (425)672-6918. I sold him all my 57-64 Olds-Pont rear end stuff I had; he told me he straightened rear ends, it only makes sense he would narrow them. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
