Whoops -- sorry, Glen.  Podunk has indeed been in touch with me -- and this is the way he's going to be presenting his stuff.  It's sort of an experiment to see if it works instead of a regular ad.  I guess I'm at fault, if anyone, for not making a notice at the top of the thread, telling everyone what's going on.

Mea Culpa.

I can testify that the correct scrub radius hubs Terry made for my old RATICAL were the MAJOR reason it quit hunting its way to the finish line like a Roadster!!!!!!!!!  :-D

Shortened inboard side of front hubs for Milwaukee Midget to get clearance to drop front end. Also shortened spindles to clear moondiscs.

It's all about being short.

First class work, Terry.  All fits nicely.  I'll do some assembly this weekend and post up the pics.

Oh, and yes, I found the steering arms in the basement, so you can stop tearing your shop apart . . .   :oops:

An upside to this operation is that it gave me a slightly closer to 0 scrub radius - about as close as one can get and still clear the inside fenderwells.

Thanks, Terry - see you in Indianapolis!

Jacksoni was having problems with a shifter arm cracking in one of the bends. Black one, bend closest to open area. Machined new one with larger radius,thicker section and polished radii and edges from 4130 annealed plate. Made it thru Speedweek.

Sparky's shortening a rearend for Ms Liberty. Thought was to skin id of existing axle tubes inline with carrier bearing bores. Problem is existing tubes are approximately .080" off center. Not enough material to bore on center. We decided to skin id of tubes on their location parallel to bearing bores. Then turn OD of new tubes with a .002" shrink fit. Then "adjust" new axle tubes to get outer axle bearings in the right place.  Hard to believe factory machining is this far off.

Goofy me!  Now I've got it -- I set this up to be a read-only Forum page, and administrators and such can post to that kind of page.  That's why Stainless and MM and I see regular-appearing pages and youse guys don't.

I'm at the shop and the password (so I can get in and re-do the settings) is at home.  Later, okay?

Sorry for the cornfusion.

Thanks Jon- I have also been unable to post here. I wanted to thank and give many Kudos to Podunk for working with me on my shifter issue. He has posted some great looking photos of carving the arm from a big solid chunk of 4130 steel. I had previously had 2 stock shifter arms break with as few as 3-4 runs on them, Mfg was pretty clueless as to cause but very good with replacements for free. They are relegated to emergency spares. The one made here worked flawlessly at the recent speedweek making 15 runs. Great work!! Thanks!!!

All this time, I thought I was the only one singing Terry's praises. 

The guy's great, and he "gets it".
