I am so happy to be at a point again with the car that I can go out and work my five minutes. That's what I planned tonight, just go out and arrange bolts or something. One thing led to another and I got one side of the irons almost done. I am so damn lucky my brother had given me that other top iron set. There are different spacers, bushings and screws at every single point! I went and got one of the bushings and went and double checked and it was different than the one I was trying to match. Just a little different, I couldn't believe it. I had taken a ton of photos as I took it apart but without that other set I would be really sweating it.

I have the tap and die to chase the threads so they screw together real easy, a drip of oil on the moving parts and things are going real well.
