    The disc brake conversion from hell. Can't make up some of the pitfalls I've had. Some mine, some due to nuances, some to Chinese trash.
    The completed side and the hold up on the other. Once its together I like it.

    Back on all 4. While the 300 bathes think I'll start tinkering with the steering. Will go Saginaw box, shaft doesnt look too complicated. Stroked looking at the prices of aftermarket columns.

    I’ve been looking at aftermarket columns too. Not too hateful.

    Glad you’re making progress. Too cold out there for me.

    This should be rather painless. Forgot I had this Commando mount. Never mind the barstock spacer, just keeping it off the shackle bolt. Once I scallop through the crossmember the box/ bracket will slide back and closer to the rail it will clear. I'll include a brace from the opposite rail. I will sleeve through the drivers rail.

    I'll be able to shoot the shaft just under the motor mount to the column. Double joint below the column ( around 50° there) support bearing and a single joint at the box should be good. Once the tie rods are flipped the draglink will be just about level.

    Don't forget to pull that shackle bolt around before you lock in the box mount.

    Hustled home on a beautiful sunny 60° day. Bored through the x member. Welded in a 3" scallop. Mocked up the box and bracket. Looks good. Bore through the frame rail for some sleeves, probably add a doubler plate this weekend. Looks like the drag link I have will work for now

    Drilled and sleeved the frame horn. Added a doubler on the inside for stiffness ( somebody forgot they had bar stock spacers in there during initial mock up so the scallop in the x member ended up a little passenger :whistle:) Drag link doesnt look hateful even not flipped yet. On to sorting out the column and shaft.

    Nothing noteworthy today. Filled the D30, had just enough gear oil around. Bolted on the mech. fuel pump. Moved my 200lbs of flywheel inventory back to the front frame horns to see if the Ranchos will settle. Doubt it, likely have to move the front hangars to get any shackle angle.
