    Ligthin' up, maybe he has other things in life to do right now?!?!?
    Auh, no humor I see...
    Hey, 10-28-2018, 02:04 PM Mykk replied. That was a Sunday. I don't think he was working , on the road, or other. I could be wrong of course... He's not the only person that does this. Someone comes in, asks a question, and maybe, just maybe he will reply the same day. Lately, you never know.
    Now, put yourself in the other person's shoes, that is replying, and trying to help, that same day, cause maybe he has to go to work the next day...
    Besides, this was just a little humor, to hopefully get some replies. Not lighten up types...
    Ok, carry on...

    DennyW, didn't realize you were waiting on me. I'm sitting back waiting to see if jerry clayton decides to tell what he sees wrong with the spring.

    I'm waiting to see what part of this project is ratty.

    Maybe he has a shiny chrome rat hood ornament?

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    Well, I guess that most of you never ever worked on anything that had leaf springs? You have the U bolts in wrong and the plate with the hole in it goes on the bottom with the hole over the end of the thru bolt-the u bolts clamp arond the leaves, not beside them----- Sorry that you seem to be offended, but the idea of these sites is to share info and help others from doing some basic auto engineering stuff in a manner thats gonna maybe cause some mayham on the roads-------

    Thank you for the input Jerry, I'll re-visit the front leaf U-bolts and mounting. I'm not offended.

    Just wait for the welds. Then it'll look ratty. But seriously I'm using the term rat to describe a non-traditional rod that won't be following any given guideline, even ratty ones. Just a project that has what I want, where I want it, done how I want.

    Sounds like me in a way. I like to build something, or redo something to my own tastes. Like my chevy truck with a merc engine. My seat is from an older Jeep Cherokee, bench style. Things I have that I've had for a long time. Figuring out how to blend them in. I mean, hell, I even still have my old 8 track player. My heater is an old Firestone one. hahaha

    Nice catch Jerry. Luckily this was just mock up and he can fix it. That is why these forums are nice. No one got hurt and he didn't have to learn the hard way either.

    Sorry Mykk, I didn't mean to butt in. I think I'm moving on now. Take care...

    It's gonna be a sweet ride Mykk. That motor is so unusual it helps make it a standout.

    Keep it comin', lovin' it over here.
