Front End Mocked Up On '35 Miller-Ford

front end mock up 001

It's all there now. It looks a little busy with the addition of the rack and pinion, tie rods, and panhard bar, but it's really pretty simple. Everything is just tacked right now, until I'm happy with the way it all fits and works. There are just a couple minor clearance issues to address, then I'll take it apart and finish all the welds, and paint it. Then it will be assembled with the proper bolts, not the junk that I used for the mock-up.

Adjustable Camber Spindles

cycle kart front suspension mock up 007

I still have some work to do on these, but this pic should give you an idea how they work. They adjust from approximately 1 degree positive to about 4 degrees negative camber. Oh, and I found this awesome smart phone app, a clinometer. It reads out in tenths of a degree. Makes a job like this easy.

Making Good Progress

cycle kart front suspension mock up 001

I'm nearly done with the experimental torsion bar front suspension. Everything is there to the point where I could support the axle with jack stands and actually put my weight on the frame to test it. It feels like it's going to be pretty stiff. According to the formula I was given for figuring out the spring rate of torsion bars, it should be around 83#.
