Sometimes, I almost wish that I was running something like a Mod. PU  or something that was more bolt together---notice that I said SOMETIMES!!!!!!!!

The grass is always greener . . .

I find myself thinking, as I work on the Midget, "Geez, if I could only just lose this production-based crap and start with a build table and some tubes".

Tell you what, Sparky, I'll work on your car for a week, and you can work on mine. 

I suspect we'll both be wanting to go home by Tuesday afternoon! grin

Gosh guys,,, I sure know how you feel !!! 
But when the builds are done and the cars drive off under there own power that is when it will be hard to wipe the big grins off our faces.

We got a phone call from Terry Mouer today the front hubs and stub axles are actually being worked on we may have axles by SW.  We had a discussion about castellated nuts.  I have seen some somewhere that allow for very small adjustments;

What have others used for this---Timken wants very close tolerance on lash and preload.

Sparky,
Preloading tapered roller bearings (Timkens)is a very touchy proceedure and it is better to be to lose than to tight. The best way (in my opinion) is to calculate or measure the distance between the inter bearing races and then make a solid spacer to fit between the two races that is that dimension, this allows you to tighten the spindle nut as tight as you can make it because the bearing spacing (pre-load) is set by the spacer. I usually come up with the exact dimension then make the spacer in two parts one about 1/4 inch short and then make a series of .245 to .255 thick spacers in .0005 increments and then fit the bearings and spacers till the pre-load is correct when I really torque down the spindle nut. Doing it this way make is easy to always have the correct bearing spacing every time you take the hub off.

If you are having your spindles made have the threads for the nut made to the bearing manufacture's specifications for bearing lock nuts, this will require that there be a keyway thru the threads but then you can use the standard bearing lock nut and washer which give you an almost infinate amount of position adjustments for the lock nut.

Rex,  I think I understood that way they are being made is that the hub is being made to bolt to the outer stock GM 4X4 steering knuckle. The hub will capture the inner and outer races in such a way that we will have to use temp. diffs. to remove them and the stub axle will have an inner shoulder that we tighten against to achieve the almost zero/zero I am sure there will be little torque. As we turn the wheels any in and out movement will be transferred across the u joint to the inner axle shaft which will be able to move slightly in and out of the carrier.

Yeah!!   We picked up the 6 18" Taylor Made wheels,  had a nice visit with Taylor and Chuck,  yesterday and dropped them and 3 M/T 30" for the front and ordered 3 M/T 26"s for the rear.  Sorry did not have the camera with me for picts. Called Terry at Mouer Machiene Co---May soon have the front hubs and outer stub axles-- then to Texas and try to finish the axles

We got an education on mounting LSR tires yesterday---tried to pick up IIs new wheels an tires yesterday ---trying to mount 26" on 6" rims was quite the experience during 3 hours we got air in one of the 3.  I can't even imagine trying to  this at a shop that is not familiar with these tires.

Nate is going to have to use the HEAVY GOOP process---get them mounted sets them set for a week break them down clean them up them remount.. wow
