    Still having trouble getting one of the king crab wheels mounted. I did some more weld profiling, and filled the weld edge with glue, they are having problems with the tire bead not sliding past the weld.

    The Visser precision valve covered are being made right now. Extra tall fins for cooling. Theyโ€™re getting black anodizing, and contrast cut afterwards.

    My tire guy just ordered me a box of 50 TR415s. Letโ€™s hope it fixes this problem! I have probably 12 that leak down over a few days. Fingers crossed.

     

    Well these won’t work with my wheels. Too big. My tire guy used another one. I’ll get the part number.

    The window frames came back from chrome. One less thing to worry about.

    The front wheels look good with a wider tire compared to the usual 135. What size are they?

    I’ve been installing 185/60 yokohamas on the front of everything lately. I like the bigger tires….I also like the 185/60 because they match the rear tires and don’t have the stupid rim protector strip.

    Hope you do get out to Texas.

    Mary and I are thinking of heading over to Colorado in August to get out of these 100+ degree days.ย  Not sure if we’ll get all the way GJ, will see.

    On the ground yesterday. Pictures later.

    Needle bearing beams have the best ride quality. You can see here how freely they move without shocks installed.

    Started with installing the pedal assembly, but ran into the pedal stop not fitting. Here is the new pedal stop, it clearly didn’t line up with the holes in the pan. So i headed to the cutting wheel and welder to make the pedal stop bracket fit as it should.

    After some trial and error I got everything to line up well, here is the finished bracket installed on the pedal assembly. Once i got that sorted I was able to get the pedal assembly installed and greased along with a new clutch cable, throttle cable, and brake push-rod all installed and greased as well. I installed 2 new brake switches, installed a reverse switch in the trans, and filled the trans with fluid. Since the master cylinder is a updated dual circuit, i had to add a tee so once the body goes on we can tie them both into the original fluid reservoir. Installed a new Bosch starter and installed the positive battery cable and rubber grommet.ย  I then installed the steering box and tie rods with some good ol’ anti seize in the threads.

    Once all that was done, it was time to move onto getting the brakes bled and adjusted and getting the emergency brake all assembled as well.ย  After looking up pics of how the early E-brake setup is and Franz showing me, we had to fabricate a missing bracket that the assembly needed. This bracket is what holds the nuts from turning when adjusting the E-brake cables. Its a small bracket but it took some effort to get right from only going off pics, but I got it done.

    After all that…. it was time to install wheel spacers on the back so the tires will clear the spring plates, and then installed the wheels and we then got this almost assembled pan on the ground!

    We should install the wire harness, speedo, and switches first. Much easier to do now.

    I sent the speedometer off to Orange Empire Speedometer in the spring for a rebuild. Ryan told me it would take a while because of the pandemic.

    Iโ€™ve been trying to get in contact with him this week without any luck.๐Ÿ˜ง

    Does anybody know Corona Ryan? I am about to give up on him.

    Iโ€™ve bought a few pair of semaphore lenses from him, always good service?
