    No wheel came with it. Same splines as the f100 that I have mounted already. Need to machine to taper or press in a F1.

    Another piece to the puzzle. Not sure my stock flat will need 3 carbs so the ends will be blocked.

    Simple fix for too much carb is build a bigger motor!

    Great build, found it only today! Definitely reminds me of around here...my project is a '27 T touring, like the one pictured next to your frame a few pages back...
    Very intrigued with your sub frame channels, and the bends to follow the '32 'kick ups'.
    Best channels I've seen, please mention how you bent them. (Rolled?)
    Thanks

    Thanks,.Just sheer force and a common pipe die . Flange got a bit rippled but hammered out straight. Could have shrunk it wit a torch (or tried too) but it didn't come to that.

    Headway on my sub rails. It is a fun project and I'm lucky to have a square frame.

    Looking good.

    Did you move? It doesn't look like your old shop?

    Thanks guys . I've moved back home to the family vinyard in osoyoos. Bc. Canada's paradise. Incredible mild winter here normally but this year has been great. I have tomorrow off so stay tuned for an update.

    Got my tt welded and bones shortened. Moved the mount to the tapered area I hope its happy there. Sleved the joints in my bones and will need to repair one split seam.
    Anyone got tips on how to reproduce the odd weld beads on the bottom of wishbones?

    Fyi 17 inches exactly came out of the torque tube and about 6 for the wishbones. I did not have to adjust the angles at the mount bolt but it is slightly tweaked. I'm going to add some heat to them when I tighten it up tight
     
  26. Sub rails came out good Garrett. Keep the updates coming. Loving this build!

    Can anyone confirm this is a speedometer cable bracket? Fits on the clam shell. Might be part of cable brake system? If it's for speedo ,I'll use it.

    What is the transmission case from? I've never seen one with an inspection cover like that.

    Bought it from a street rodder converting to t5. Never noticed the cover . I'll pull it off and see if the normal bolt holes are under. It's an early trans with the shifter bent to swan shape. Got it for a song and it is nice and tight.
