Next will be the front axel swap. Have to make an adapter for the steering linkage to the new axel to get the geometry right.

 

Wheelie bars might not be a bad idea as well Alan!  :smilewink:  :poke:

I've got to say, my kiddos have been great about this lately.
Ryan was a HUGE help all day. I really couldn't have done it without him.

Thanks for being such a good help Ryan.  I can truly appreciate Alan's appreciations for your help, as my son Josh has really stepped up during my surgery & now that I'm in the healing process.

I have never accused you of being a good paperweight... You're to darned skinny to make a good one anyways.

We negotiated a little.

Could you make a video teaching us your superior negotiating skills? It could go in a tech wiki.

Not telling you what to do Ryan, but to avoid this in the future I recommend shoving the wrong side of the bed up against the wall. :D

Rain rain rainrainrainrainrainrain...
Started working on the front axle this morning.
First, why I wanted to do this axle.
1" spindles and a wider stance

Due to the fwd sweep and the geometry, it's kind of a balancing act to figure what needed done to the steering without major tractor mods.

Now to change tires over, build a spacer for the diff in thickness and we can start making headway.

Better a paper weight than target practice. 

 

 

Honestly my dad thought my butt had a bulls eye on it for a while. Every time I went out to wander around in the woods he would shoot me in the butt with a pellet gun when I crossed over the fence. IT went on for a few days until I got his little  pump up pellet pistol and hid it under my jacket one day. I started over the fence and I heard the back door open and the safety release on the pellet rifle. I dove over the fence and pulled the little Crossman out of my jacket, hid behind an 8x8 fence post, and aimed it at him. He held the rifle over his head and said no more. HE knew I was a good shot with that thing. Mine wasn't even loaded. LOL. We still laugh about it.
