    Aah. So, you broke free both center blocks and only turned the upper torsion housing and then bolted the lower block back in the stock location?

    BBOE, BOTH blocks turned same amount..

    my current pamper, I was lazy and only broke the lower tube free… turned it and welded it.

    Short answer…. I think the front of a bus is too heavy to be turning one set of torsions, you need to turn both sets the same amount so the spring pressure is the same on the upper and lower arms……

    My update ….dropped the rear cradle, built a new nose cone mount, installed adjusters in front beam, installed a new WW bay tank with reserve assembly, adding a berg mid mount as soon as they send right frame mounts, still waiting on Nate for his “really good disc brakes”, hope to have it driving again soon if parts situation cooperates. Will Prob be on drums for the initial run  DD3D5300-E76B-4955-85B7-BE4E97DC9AB2923FF65F-75D0-4CA3-9923-2DDD490C67B01B8EA5BF-2CD3-492F-8D0E-995165DCE6DE8A576A98-A468-4F28-8FBB-66661347DFD4

    Great progress!

    Are you trying to  get it driving by a certain show/camp out?

    We will build it if it comes.

    Looking good Wayne!

    ive had a bro-ner over the BBOE since John finished it a few years ago, finally at a point in my life to become a copy-cat.

    Looks great! Short work of it to. Like Rusty said, an “I’m doing this thread” instead of; “I’m thinking of doing this thread”.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.
