Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime




The passenger side was the worse. There wasn't much holding it together.

The drivers side was a much cleaner break.

The drivers side went back together pretty smooth.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime



The passenger side was a *****. We had to twist it and use the jack and jack stands with a ratchet strap to pull it together. Weld here weld there and then it started pulling itself together. We weren't gong for pretty we were going for strength.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime




Tony went ahead and rewelded around the C notches on both sides and we called it a day. We will clean it up and plate the outside. Once we are done with that we will get the weight distributed right and start on adding tubing over the shock mounts to tie everything. I may have to do some adjusting and shimming on the bed. All in all a for a near disaster I think it went back together pretty well.

The rig I tried to get it home from the track with. It worked for awhile.

Damn $hitty deal, but good thing you caught it before it completely broke.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Yes it sucks Monty. In the end I'm glad it happened just not the 800 mile round trip and missing a race. I was able to rearrange my schedule so we are going to start back on it at 8am this morning. Maybe we can get it finished and I can get it home I hope.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime


When I got there yesterday morning he was doing some welding. He found one or two small cracks and welded them up too. Then we had to determine bar placement in the back. There was only a 4 inch long area to use. I got them marked and cut some holes in the bed.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I left out that I worked on the bed shimming it in the back .I think the bed gap looks as good or better than it ever has. It was never perfect because the of the way I had the cab mounted before the cage was built. If I don't like it when I get it home I can still play with it some more.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime





We sampled different angles of tubing bends with some templates. We decided on a 45 degree I kinda liked a 30 better but it would have been harder to weld at the bottom.

We got both bars bent and mocked up. Then had to call it a day.

Definitely looks like those will help the effort.

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.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime


I got it home yesterday evening. He didn't have time to help me with the floor and the tubs. I'm going to have to fix that mess myself. I've already gotten the tubs pretty straight. I need to cut up the pieces of the floor I took out and fit them around the 90 degree braces. Then clean this mess up and do some bedliner and paint the bars.

It will be interesting to see if it reacts differently now.

That’s kinda the same idea behind how mine is done, sample principal anyway.

I'm sure it will. If it picks up R/T that's not a bad thing. I hope it picks up a ton.
