Fitted the brake callipers onto the brackets to ensure the gap was correct for chrome plating. Approx 3th required both sides. Removed the callipers and stripped them down. Took them to the chrome platters should get them back next week.

Well it's been a while a new shed, kitchen & bathrooms later I can now carry on with the bucket. Well you may notice a few changes like the front axle. It is now a Super Bell 4" drop I-beam. I was not willing to crack test and x-ray all the welds so out it went and in came the I-beam.

06-11-2006 02:01 AM Steering Box
I have been told many stories on what type of steering I should use. As I can't use the late model steering rack mounted to the front cross member due to bump steer, I was told to use a Suzuki four wheel drive unit. Then I was told to use a Toyota land cruiser or an xw Falcon. After looking at a lot of different types I found the VW Comby to be the easiest to fit, it clamps directly onto the main frame with 5 bolts. I machined the gearbox to get the steering box further forward so the shaft comes into the body above the brake peddle to avoid interference between the brake and accelerator. We are left hand drive here so there is not much room between the steering box and the starter motor.
