Canít remember where this got to again. Had the DD shaft machined down and tigged into the column so thatís all strong. Steering only works dunnit.

Got some universal seat runners, but if the seats mounted straight to it, the angle is no good and the seat is too low. Iím making up some blocks which are 3 inch at the front and 2 at the back which should work nicely for the seating position. They will bolt in between, but I might end up welding them to the runner.

Nearly called in again today Archie, but figured you'd be busy. I collected my radiator at about 3.30 this afternoon.

One side nearly done.

Bit of a gap between the runner and block, but will be putting in a rubber which should take up the difference. Or might end up welding it to the runner anyway

So once the bolts were tightened up the gap reduced a lot. Pretty happy with the results, but might get someone to redo them a bit nicer down the line.

Also it steers, but needs a bottom support bearing on the column to stop it twisting, but coming together a bit

Again canít remember whatís what and where I am in here.

We were looking at the height and trying to figure out why the axle adjusters werenít raising the ride height whatever setting they were on. Turns out it had some of the leaves removed which would allow it to sag for a lowered ride height.

Pulled the beam and arms to clean up before rebuilding with new leaves and seals etc. I was going to paint it all, but remembered I need to make headlight brackets to go on yet so have left that for now.

The bottom arms have the shock mounts on them, but as is typical with these the insert on the shock welds itself to the arm. I started to cut one off but it was being a pig so ended up using the oxy to get it hot enough to move. I then had to fill one with weld and knock back as Iíd cut into the arm.

Also the bolt mounts on the beam are just pressed and spot welded in place with a big gap, so I ran some weld across the gap to seal it / beef it up a bit.

Just need to put the arms back on and it should be back on itís wheels.

I've looked at those suspension set-ups several times & still don't really get how they work.
Progress though mate. I was wondering how you were getting on.
I messaged you a few days ago Archie Smiley

Yeah leaves that rotate to set the height and kind of link both sides.

Got your message will try not to forget tomorrow. It wasnít showing that I had an unread one and no email. Weird.

Back on its wheels today now the ride height adjusters work like they should. Currently set to the highest setting -
