Bolted all the pieces on and then had a neighbor help me load it in the truck, er sort of "in" the truck. 16ft does not go into 6.5ft without a little overhang.

Dropped it off at the museum (old one is next to it) and took a few pics for all us DOTs around here.

It came out OK, thx.  I wanted a few more bells and whistles, but time was not there.

So as the paint dried I made the pin. Welded a nut to the pin, drilled a .250 hole and formed this handle. Then drilled the other for a clip.

Then cleaned it with MEK and a scotch pad, then primed with ething primer.

Set it up outside and painted it Rustolium Safety Yellow.

After welding all around I added the wheels using old spacers from a lift kit (20 years old at least!)

So, got the tow bar done today. Was a late night doing little things and painting in the morning.

Modded the shelf for clearance to do the SS pin, was to long.

Then welded the spacers on.

You can find these all the time. made by Emco in Austria. This was 20 years old when I got it but the 6 crates of tooling was the clintch! Was still 3k and mine has the milling head.

Called a Maximat Super 11. Turns 11x27 with a 1.5 bore, 3 jaw, 4 jaw, face plate and power feeds. Will do all normal threads, metric and SAE.

This is just big enough for about 90% of what I want. The other 10% is doing rotors/drums. 11 inches just won't cut that.

Old Clausings or anything US or Taiwan made is good. I had an old 9 inch Jet that was great. Just turned 6 in but tought me so much, made in Taiwan. I had a gap bed 13x40 Jet, made in China. It worked OK, but you could tell it just didn't have that quality feel.

The I cleaned up and bored the 1.5 in rod to accept a .750 SS pin that will go through the tailwheel (.850) I bored it to 8.125.

The bushings are 3 inches long that will allow a welding surface all around and the will not be 90* either.

Nice write up. Was good to see see all the parts I have getting put on. Tate did me good too and my CC still hurts.

Using Norms idea on the nuts, but doubt I will get the whole axles. Nice thing is I have one axle nut wrench that fits the Dmax rear and the Subs front and rear axles.

How do the hubs work? They are sure purdy.

I already have the small HF one and it works good. Think I will try the purple degreaser in this one.

I have my throttle body to try in it. I have 65lb injectors, high pressure kit and will mill the top off and blend it. Should give me a little more umph with that beast without going nuts.

Then of course there are gun parts and other little things. I was looking for a 5gal airater type cleaning setup. Those work great but this will run without air.

You sure on the 6 lug guys? Ford and dodge used 5 lugs for a long time with 44's. I know they will be a lot wider, but I bet the knuckles will cross over? A 44 would sure be nice vs the 30.

I see XJs all around here built up being at the foot of the Sierras and a hairs breath from the rubicon.

Oh, the XJ shaft on the GMs gets rid of the rag joint. Popular mod on many of the truck forums.

Well, they have the Harpoon and the PT-17 of course. A Huey (OD VN era), T-28 Trojan (polished), Stinson Gull Wing (WWII British colors) and a frame work of a Bi-Plane I would guess around 1910. Was just told they have a T-33 on the way.

Throw some pics up if you get a chance to take some, if you can.

Will do but next week. Just came back from the Dr, had cordisone shots.

Looks good!

I see you have one of those Rockwell sawhorse/vise things....you love it as much as I do mine? I think that's one of my favorite tools. Surprised Don doesn't have one. Maybe one of us should put that in the tool section.

Yep, those things are great for anything! Not cheap but worth the price. Yes Don should get one. I think that Lowes make their own version now too.

Then I have to mount these wheels so the pin sits at around 10.5in (22in dia tail).

The tow bar can be pulled by hand, or the hooked up the swivel wheel is off the ground for towing. Hooked up to the plane for towing, all the wheels are "up"  8)

Now I have to bore the 1.5 inch rod for a .750 SS rod to go through the tail wheel.

Had to rebuild the cross slide first though. Bushing hand fallen out and the whole thing was corroded from a water leak. Ended up using a slab of granite with 320 grit glued down as a hone surface. Came out OK but it needs a little paint still.

Gas here is $2.00 and diesel is $2.50.

Just don't compare fuel to milk like the bozos on tv do. I don't put 50gal of milk in my truck, but drink a gal a week.

Here is Ca, you are better of making $8 and hour with a family than if you make 60k a year. At the $8 level, you have so many benefits it is like making 50k a year with no taxes!

Guess who gets most of that, illegals. And they use diff names to double benifits so as not to look like a family.

I agree Norm, been there myself when work was slow thats what I did.

IF you didn't get foodstamps or any other benefit and you and your family had to eat, you would work anywhere (see above) They are not doing that for free, nor all the other jobs they have taken over. Americans did it many years ago and would again if that is all there was or you don't eat.

Same goes for construction, landscaping and about any other work there is.


On another note, did you hear about how using search engines can sway the elections? People don't use their heads and hardly ever go to the 2nd-3rd page on a search. 60% of the time they hit the 1st or second item and that is the gospel! Now what if you controlled what came up 1st, like google does?

Huckabee is not a conservative. I used to listen to him on the radio. He doesn't talk to people, he tells people.

I heard the univision clown today, Trump did him good.

China needs us more than we need them. They sell a lot, but not high tech. They have cheap labor is what makes em a player at all.

And we would not have to boot out one person. Secure the border and take away incentives is all. No $$ to any state or city who gives benefits or asylum to a non-citizen or illegal. No work-no welfare, no stay!!
Per the Constitution, congress makes the laws on how you immigrate or become a citizen. That is not in the 14th Amend, and it states so "subject to jurisdtiction" IE, you are a foreign national here illegal, your US born child is that of the parents. When you are 18 you can return and ask to be a citizen. same thing for any diplomat, ours or theirs.
