Top notch craftsmanship with the frame lugs and axle plates. This is the kind of thread I get excited about!

I like everything about this thread! Doing Fresh bushes & spindles on the girder? I need to re-build one myself... I know there is not much to them, but I want to make sure I do it properly.. Will be watching closely.

Default Prep for tacking:

Thanks for all your kind words,

Right now i am putting the frame parts together on the jig to start tacking and doing the rosette welds;
In addition to the rosette welds i use dowel pins for structural reinforcement.



Question: You guys doing framework, do you ever re-use the original castings?

Throwback, I checked out your stuff, those risers & kicker pedals are top notch.. i am glad you liked my work, thanks a lot.

So hopefully i will finish the frame this week, at the same time i am doing some measurements and making a list for parts.

Haha, that is the way it always goes! It is amazing how few parts of a pre unit motor you actually end up using by the time you go through everything.

hey Tyler, its true...i dont even remember all the parts that i ordered within the last couple years just from you.
Will see you @ Bonneville this summer, looking forward to seeing your new salt flats racer...

Update:
This is where old meets new




In order to tack the frame together I first had to fabricate the tube cross-overs

Before cutting out the fish-mouths I bent the tubes to the exact angle I wanted





Test fitting




Beginning the tack welds

hi mozez, missed this one, sorry, i am going to restore the whole front-end, i am using most of the original parts but some new hardware, they are all original 26 tpi...already reconditioned the threads, i'll probably make some bushes as well, i will post detailed images later.



these front-ends require time and special hardware as you mentioned, good luck with yours.
thank you,

thats funny... i dont think that would be a good idea, your builds are all unique and inspirations for us, looking forward especially for the "Tesla" to be finished, thanks a lot Bozi.

hi fuelrod, thanks.

it is the little Tube Notcher from JD Squared


you can use it with your hand drill or drill press, it does the job

the fish mouth before the edges are sanded.
