It looks a lot longer from the front view. Do you have a rough drawing of what this is going to look  like when your done?

Question, are the pk frames lower in the rear? Is it the camera angle? Or did you design it that way? Sorry it's curiosity.

Walked into Ryan's shop today. I haven't checked on his project lately. The pictures don't really do it justice as to how long it is. I suppose I need to stop more often. Luckily I only live across the street. Lookin great Ryan.

It is just an optical illusion in the side view picture but Ryan can answer better than I can. That is a cool looking rig!

No, the frame is not lower on the rear. The illision is caused due to the floor in my garage, under the square plate is the well and the floor is sloped down around the well. The front of the frame is on the high spot in the floor, and the back is on a low spot. Yesterday when Neighbor Herby (concernednaighbor) saw it in person he even said the same thing.

This spring when I was planning this, I made up this quick drawing on paint. It is likely going to be a lot different in the details, but the concept is there.

Last night I put the engine block, oil pan, bell housing, clutch housing, and tranny together on the bench. Then, I moved them onto the frame so that I can start with the drive-shaft.

7119A539-E81C-43CA-903A-0E79A130AAA9-189

 

Before I can make the drive shaft, I have to make the drive tube. Once the tube is fabricated, I will have to rotate the differential the little bit I need, then weld in a plate to mount the engine. Once I know exactly where the engine will be, I can get the drive-shaft made up. After that, I will have to cut the drive tube in the middle to put in a pillow block for the long drive-shaft.

I got the circles for the ends of the drive tubes cut out! The plasma cutter, and the circle guide worked awesome! The one on the left was the first one I cut out, and I was not very happy with it; although, I figured it was not that bad. Then I cut the middle one and saw how bad the first really was, so I cut out another, the right one.

Nice clean cuts!

C193B0C8-BB16-48B9-A395-97D261B321E8-233

 

I have to figure out how long the tube needs to be, then I can cut the pipe to size. Before I weld the circles on the ends, I need to put a large hole in the center. I am going to see if anybody I know has a hole saw close in size, but I will likely end up using the plasma cutter.

After thinking a little more, I decided that I did not need to track down a hole saw after all! I could make a different type of circle guide to use with the plasma cutter! Here is what I ended up with. It is much simpler then the other guide I made; the corner hole is for the pivot around a bolt, and the large hole is for the tip of the torch to go into. The small hole on the left was already in the piece of metal.

13093CE2-A4F8-4A92-AF57-64D4918CA6D1-370

 

Next, I had to drill a hole into the center of the circles I cut out yesterday, for the guide to pivot around. Here is the guide after I fit it up. I put a nut and washer on there to keep the tip of the torch at the desired height.

6A0302AB-D7F7-4400-9577-A0C37D4A7F57-370

 

The guide I made worked great!

1C6FEAA6-267F-45D0-9838-0CD1E4C228CB-370

 

It is not exactly a perfect fit, but this way I will still have some room to move around and play with the tolerances a bit. I have about a 1/16 of an inch around the pipe.

F5631DB8-0868-48AC-96D6-D247DC528978-370

 

I also had time to get the holes drilled into the circles I made. The circle on the right bolts to the tranny, the one on the left goes to the differential.

71C81CB7-ED06-4DA8-BA7F-F957263B8BAF-370

 

I am not sure if I will have time or not, but I am going to try and get the circles welded into the pipe tomorrow.

I did not have time to get the drive tube welded together, hopefully this weekend I will get it together.

 

I have been wanted to get this picture since I got a rolling frame put together, finally got it tonight! Just a comparison on how long it is.
