Re: 88-A Platform Bed Mounting

glad i could help - i really wonder how precise they originally put them or if there was some kinda jig to drill the pilot holes for the screws.

i got some of the other measurements of its nearby plates so measure before you go drilling int your board. hopefully it fits close enough.

Re: 88-A Platform Bed Mounting

Re: worm drive drive shaft

I remove the rear most rivet. The housing at that point has a little bit larger diameter giving the replacement pin more room. I'd be reluctant to swap the bronze gear around as by this time the gears are pretty comfortable running where they are. to expand on this yes the rear pin, also the catalo...

(already removed plates and wood is very weathered but screw holes will be present and obvious) mine would be on a march 29 platform setup.

Re: Ride hight?

Never mind, I guess I do not explain myself well. i think its just because we dont understand what your trying to do. like what is your end goal? what are you trying to build? there may be a language barrier as well and we dont mean to offend but we have never ever had someone request that measurem...

Re: leaf spring restoration

Thanks for your reply, Chris. What is gained by spring restoration? Does it improve the ride? As a practical matter, I don't envision loading this AA with enough weight to challenge the suspension. if all the springs are apart, sandblasted to remove all rust, painted, then some graphite slip plate ...
