IRS Rear End Geometry

Frustrated with the cold, I brought some of the work to my basement. Coming up with a rear end geometry wasn't easy. It took a number of tries but i was able to design a common plate to keep it all together.



I then used styrofoam to mock everything up.




The frame design itself is just about finished but there is a challenge regarding the the explorer end cover that I am using. The bolts are actually angled upward and everything is asymmetric. So before I start cutting tubing I would need to triple or even quadruple check everything.

I love your mocking up this thing as you are. You just can't spend too much time on mocking and templates.

Good job ( I hate using styrofoam and all those weightless little pieces flying around my shop) I mocked my '31 frame up for the '32 gas tank with dimension framing wood and matched the steel to it size wise.

As far as being cold - wait til tomorrow

It's finally warming up here in MN after hopefully one last huge snowfall. How's the project coming along?

Cold!

After the coldest winters in decades, it is finally warming up. However not consistent enough for me to do anything outdoors. I'll probably get going again in a month.

It has been a grueling and depressing winter. Six month of cold weather and the coldest in decades. We finally have had 2 weeks of warm weather.



Over the winter, I had purchased a Model A wishbone front end. After my first mock up, I realized that my front frame section was a few inches too long. I have adjusted the length and measured the radiator to motor distance and it seems quick workable.



I also attached the IRS rear frame mock up and it seems to be just right.



I still have to move the motor back about 1 inch and will have to trim the transmission opening. After this, I'll be glassing in the floor, firewall, and making a transmission tunnel.



My seat were originally 1 piece but they had a huge recline and didn't quite fit. They have now been trimmed into 2 pieces. I quite like this look.



The manifold throttle bodies were soaked for weeks in degreaser since they were seized solid from carbon build up. Now they are spotless.

Hopefully the next time you see the motor, it will be painted to prevent further aluminum corrosion.

Got an early Mustang steering box. Yahoo!


....and a 3 core rad from a 1965ish 6 cylinder Falcon wagon. The 6 cylinder has the correct location for the water hose.

Well the hope to keep this build purely Ford has been squashed. Got a great deal on a pair of 10" headlights off a 1928 Pontiac. Also picked up an original Model A rad shroud.
