I have been still working and taking a few pictures.

tapped in bolts for steering stops, I ground that boss flat so the bolt hits straight Mocked up the tie rod. cut off the rear frame and built a back porch. I need to find or make an 8" pitman that has the same splines. Now that the steering box is all mounted it just occurred to me that I probably could have swapped in a ford box, too late now.

Had a few hot days here so been moving slow and nothing exciting to report. Adding gussets and fish plates isn't sexy.

Started mocking up my high steer bracket though. Pretty happy with it so far.

Planning to finally sling the rear axle under tomorrow and get it back on all fours



also managed to fumble the cut off wheel.

this finally happened this weekend, got it down on all fours. I'm pretty happy with the ride height.

now the detail work starts.
drive shafts
brakes
shocks
steering
tub


The high steer bracket from last week was a colossal failure. I was not even drunk but for some reason did not consider it fitting inside the rim and I also did not consider the drag link hitting the spring when turning to the left. I set it all up with everything straight and did not look at the turning angles. Live and learn.

Looks like a MAJOR oversight here.

Now that I am looking at it, how in the heck do you plan on tipping it and driving while the weight of the vehicle is balanced on your driver's door? Don't tell me you plan on driving with all 4 wheels on the ground, say it isn't so!

*grin*

I guess most of the future pics will be either mostly level or far more dramatic.

True story. I have been using walmart cheater reading glasses for a few years and it suddenly dawned on me to put them on when welding. It was a game changer, I kept thinking the lens was dirty. I have always like to get right up close when welding and probably way closer than when reading a book. #slowlearner

helping a friend get ready to move cross country so not much progress this week. hooked up steering hoses and worked on re engineering the high steer bracket. No pix tho.

I did put in the cj tailgate for a test fit and it's perfect. Anyone know what this is from? Cj6? 7? 8? Need to order a gasket
