    Just curious. I eventually want to go link bars and build a watts, I've been brainstorming on welding braces on the factory steel cover

    Its a T3/T4 with a 60 A/R same one everyone used on the imports from my days. But if i can budget later for a better one i will. going to call a favor from a friend and get the manifold made so it will be fancy.

    you want to build your own? Looking at your work I’m sure you could. If not I would reach out to Ron and dave at http://www.ronsutton-racetechnology.com/ I’m sure there is something that will work for you. I would do mine a little different if I built my own and i would have had Ron help with it if I had known them at the time. But this will work just fine and I know it will not go anywhere.

    its the FTR watts https://www.fullytorquedracing.com/m...atts-link.html. Center section is great, the uprights to the chassis were the weak link in the SN95 application IIRC

    Did a little CAD (cardboard aided design) drawing for the shock mounts and some other tabs I needed. Making forward progress. Torque arm mounts and cross member is next.

    Crossmember madness!
    I started the driveshaft notch, had to make room for driveshaft and torque arm at full bump with a little room for any pinion changes.





    Next up, torque arm crossmember. My original idea was to use the same material as the frame. But, after tacking it in, I realized there could be a driveshaft issue. Being a Ranchero, I will have to unbolt the shocks to get the wheels to drop low enough to get them off the extended wheel studs. Looking at the way the 2x3 sat in there, it would hit before the rear end drooped out enough. So, back to the drawing board






    Lastly, the shock crossmember was originally going to include the anti roll bar mounts, but I quickly came to realize that there would be a shock and anti roll bar interference issue. So on to plan b for the anti roll bar location.

    I think I have one of my grandfather's circle templates in a drawer with his slide rule!

    Did not know those were still in use.

    I might be the only one. 15 years ago when I was building mini trucks and prepping off-road cars that is what we used. I kind of have fun trying to figure some of this stuff out.
