Re: 2wd swap

Looks good.
Nice & level lowers. Uppers appear right on the Camber curve.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Thanks, been awesome to watch him learn and understand the dynamics of the steering geometry and suspension geometry.

His teacher deserves an 'atta-boy'.

I only wish I had someone share this sort of knowledge & encouragement to soak up as much skills as possible when I was younger. He will reap the rewards now & even more as he grows.

Wink Re: 2wd swap

Thank you.

But at this point I'm just the enabler.
The depth of his understanding is way beyond my knowledge.
He was explaining to me how he may put the upper ball joint on the bottom of the upper arm to help the roll steer.

So neat to see it all making sense to him.

•Edit•
Maybe posted this before.
2010 beginning of our dash swap.
Never knew he was paying that much attention

Re: 2wd swap

Today we swapped center sections.
3.82 to a 2.91

Forgot how nice the ring & pinion set was in the 3.82

Re: 2wd swap

The cast iron hub we made had some serious run out issues. Don't know if it was the studs we pressed in or the chineseum rotors.

My kid found these wilwood hubs for a c10 spindle.
Wilwood 270-13217 Hub


They'll work with our rotor and caliper with about 1/8 machined off the caliper bracket and machined another 1/8 off the od to fit the Id of our rotors.

Now onto motor mount and transmission mount.
Fusion360 and sendcutsend are cutting those for us

Re: 2wd swap

In the sun.
Some fall cleaning since it's cool enough to do something other than sweat.
His 1st design motor mount, I wanted to use oem style clamshell stuff and he said it uses up to much room for headers.
Then the ratchet strap didn't get a full wrap and dropped our mockup block on our F body pan.
He handled it like a pro- owned the mistake and thankful he didn't catch it.
