I want to see how this works but it would work here just for getting the wood all the time.

Seeing the pipe in the attic, will that be supported somehow? A lot of weight there with water in there.

Surprised JR didn't ask you why your heater looked like it once had 30 gallons of water in it.
(I assume the drain plugged up at one time? condensation?)

I saw that but forgot to ask,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Getting there pretty nice. I was thinking of building the slide for the exchanger the same way as you posted.

As a thought, have you thought about using quick disconnects on the lines for maintenance? You could secure the lines better and still have access. It is low pressure so the only issue would be flow.

Yep, looking good but I agree with the bracing. Even a small cable "X" along the sides will do so much and you know you are going to load it up!

So when is the web site going to be up? Looking for a few things for the SAS as I finish the sub.

Used the scaler for those hard to get to parts, worked great (as I said, I cleaned to much)

Old brake lines worked fine. Fuel pump is bad, tried to jump it but nothing. Getting this running should up the $$ some for sure! Going to cut a hole vs drop the tank, just seems easier. 

Paint the hood black, use bedliner under the side trim and TSC desert tan for the rest. Should look good!

Cleaned, painted and installed. Did way to much cleaning for a flip, but thats me.

Getting the drums turned and had to get longer lug nuts for the 14mm studs. Drive line matced up to boot.

Got another interested in it and the guy at O'Riely's turning the drum said I should ask more.

My opinion. Don’t wait for it to happen again. If you don’t think reason or logic will prevail. It’s much less suspicious for the dog to make an exit now.

Some TRN logic there. Sure you don't to upset someone who has brought you in. However safety over rides feelings often. If it disappears right after something happens there could be some issues. If it just disappears, it's where is the dog?

TRN, you mean it doesn't get "that cold". Funny I have to both heat and cool mine.

Don, in post 119 it looks like that small drain line is going up before it attaches to the main line. Is that the picture or an issue?

I have a big set and a small set of those cutters, work good.

Keeping with leafs both for price, ease of install and keeping from getting 10 inches of lift.

I ran across the idea of using sliders instead of the shackles. Reviews look good, really good. They say they help with stability since you don't have that shackle being twisted in turns.

These would also allow me to keep the spring pads as is. Allow a lower front mount with these flat on the frame with maybe just a plate and gusset, or even a bolt on mount?

Anyone used em at all?

If I don't go with a big name there is a local shop here I have used. Valley Spring Works in Dixon and Sacramento Spring too.

No website but I have used them a couple times for both a re-arch and the military add on to my sub build.

My research was showing more complaints on the deavers vs alcons. I did a worksheet on alcons but have not heard back

Have my gears on the way and looking at other things. (spring vs preload steering arm on the 60)

Or if you want to save some work, just reposition the left one and shift the whole axle so the right one lines up.

How would that work? One wheel out 2 inches more that the other  :huh:


Anyway I had a nice long post and never submitted it  :popcorn:


Yep, easiest is to move the pads, use the kit, done. Shawn wants me to go with deaver springs, love to but a grand for springs!!

So you like the dogleg over the straight shackle? Shorter bolts will be stronger and allow more flex.

You know the diff between a contractor and a enviromentalist? The environmentalist lives a house in the woods, the contractor wants to build a house in the woods.

At first it seemed simple, but there is no SAS kit for the Dmax and a HP D60 with 36.5 leaf mounts. I want to stay with leafs, coilovers break the bank in many ways.

Now Sky has a kit for the later HP D60, but it has the 8x170 bolt pattern and ball joints. That D60 also has 38.5 pads and uses angled shackles. I thought why not just push my mounts out 1 inch or so and go with the same idea, but with a small twist (well no twist). The SKY SAS kit is not expensive, but all I need are front and read hanger and some shackles, right?

So my idea is to move the pads out a little on the axle. 1 side is easy and the HP side is a little more work but not hard. This may not even be needed once I measure some more, but my frame is 38 inside to inside now.

So front mounts can go where I want really, just match the pad width. Shawn tells me keeping the spring mounts sorta level works best and caster can be managed with shims if needed. For the rear mounts you drill the frame and weld bushings in place. Plenty of meat there on the frame, inside and out. So why not extend the upper tube and use a longer bushing vs the angled shackle? Then on the spring end just use an alum spacer (or weld a steel spacer) giving me straight shackles? This would add about an inch to each rear shackle bolt.

Just wondering if the stress on the longer bolts would be to much? The upper should be no concern as the shear would be on the ends just like a short bushing. The lower with the spacer might be a concern, but would it?

After posting I think a welded steel spacer on the shackle would be a better idea placing all the stress on the bolt ends as is the normal

Here is a pic showing how SKY does it and my idea.

Cleaning this is a bare, think I will have the D60 blasted for the Dmax.

Have a solid bite on the flip of this, just need to mount the 9.5 after a little more cleanup.
