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!
