    After cleaning out the torsion housing center, I lubed the torsion bar splines with anti-seize, slipped them in, along with new bushings, spring plates and torsion caps. 813BA1CA-D78B-4A91-B180-333AF63D010783E1D855-66C5-4B2F-9AC2-89BE5570352C33AAFA1E-1C1E-45F1-81B3-15D3D4D92171

    New ebrake cables and cable tube seal installed. 47ED7E70-044A-4846-A088-BB9E635B0366DD445A5A-B523-4EBF-A6FE-AC81065FABDB

    Mocked up a trans with the new front mount, fit, burned in, and painted. 014B7E56-79A3-482F-B036-6C6127FB117A8CC659AC-11F1-45FA-9BCB-A4E6627A6CE281E7479B-FDAB-4BA6-983B-0C90C237F141

    The rear brake line t mount is the most frustrating nut n bolt to install on any early car. 7F9CB140-71E8-464D-84A4-0390F69F4DE6

    Rear end is ready for the trans once it’s back from rebuild. 4336556D-293D-4C2C-865C-FBC50D884554

    We will build it if it comes.

    Finished cleaning the pan head area and laid down a protective rattle can coat. 1D571E54-2A50-4EFF-AB28-A2CE6BC2A048E93F76CE-9298-43F5-A86D-F3A16B36D77E

    Brake lines back in place. 06B88204-C797-4870-8156-E1132360EE319707F403-E299-403F-82CB-A1DBB1CDAD7A

     

    Cleaned the steering box and lots of hardware.  A0311189-D522-457E-AF70-0C633F35A70E4F5F7DEA-DE5C-4BA0-888F-271F2D749AB1

    Bolted the beam in. Pulled the lower torsion arms and flipped the springs to make sure we don’t have a saggy front end. Upper arms and spring flip in the morning. B81598D9-1F58-4CAC-A9E9-291AEB66A280C5DF7281-7259-4A4D-A59B-5FE039862C5B4A5DF24F-846D-44E5-A551-304380BE0B9B

    Flipped the upper torsion springs and bolted all the bits I could back together on the front end.

    Great work!  I figured you wouldn’t like my Western Implement tractor switch substitute…in my defense, I think WW was out at the time.
