looking pretty good..

did you set the perch 3* back for Camber like Speedway suggests? When I put my frame togther ( which will be replaced/ rebuilt longer and better as soon as I get the chance ) I did it 3* back, but after searching some. I found some say that it's not nessasary... I will get the drop perch for the next frame

Randy,

To say you move right along with a build project would be the understatement of the year. On a "T bucket only" forum I have watched the progress on a really fine build carry on for 17 years. I know you are firmly planted here, being part of the donor pool to defend free speech (my hat is off to you for this), but any chance of sharing this most stunning build rate with the T-bucket group at http://tbuckets.lefora.com/ . I know you are a busy guy, time is valuable, but I can promise you nobody on that site as witnessed build progress like the lucky folks here. With those hours you put in, and being from La, are you a offshore oil patch worker?

Bob

It will need a longer tie rod moving the pivot points closer to the wheel but with that all will be good in the akerman angle dept.

Matt.. It depends on what axle you go with... By the book it should be set around 3* up.. But I have set them up at right at level, with no problems.. I use the axle with the bat wings... The spring is bolted through the side.. On some axles the spring is bolted through the top of the axle... The one that goes through the side of the bat wing can be set at any angle you want.. But I like to set it level.. The axle move's in a arch.. But with the long arms.. It's so little movement up and down, don't really matter.. Some WILL tell you different..

Mr Bob thanks for the web site.. I will try, But sometimes it's hard to do just one site... I never worked in the oil field.. But I did help build the boats that supply the offshore.. I worked in the shipyards pretty much my whole life... Had some other trades also..

You know the old saying: Jack of all trades, Master of none..

What kills me is this "truck" (it isn't one yet ) didn't exist a few weeks ago. This is one thing I love about fabricating, making something that didn't exist the day before. How gratifying this must be for Randy to create an entire truck that didn't exist!
