General Discussion / 29 Build Thread - Part 2
« on: November 12, 2017, 05:10:35 PM »
All Suspension Work Completed

The original Build Thread was getting quite long so I decided to start another since this Thread completes most of the structural work and all the suspension restoration.  I must admit that new springs all around and repairing the problems with the mismatch shackles makes a big difference.  So after a year since I started the restoration the car is finally sitting on it's own four wheels again and in perfect alignment.
 




So on to the next chapter.  I'll be working on replacing the floor next ?

Very sorry for the forum being down for the past 20 hours.  I believe we are finally back up and running.

Sorry for any inconvenience.  Please let me know if you experience any issues with functionality.

Tom & Dave, Thanks a lot. Its been an adventure working on the suspension.  Once the rear is finished I can get the car back on its wheels.

I had new rear springs made by Eaton Detroit Springs.  The car should be set for the next 100 years:

The pictures of the tracker motor look fine.

Ill check into some photo sharing software and see what the costs might be.

Perplexing Issue:

I was preparing to install my new rear springs and while cleaning up the parts I noticed that the rear shackles were different in length.



It appears that the passenger side of my car had some early suspension repairs.  If you recall the front passenger side had a different shackle and a welded top leaf.  Now I find that the rear springs have different length shackles.  Passenger side (WME) approximately 3" between pin centers and the Driver's Side approximately 3.5" between pin centers ??  Which is correct. 



Also the larger driver's side shackle had a marking on the center bolt.  [R] ??



I assume that these differences are why my car always sat a little lopsided.

Can anyone verify which length shackle is correct for a 29 4dr. Sedan.  You can check your car easily by measuring between the grease fittings they sit in the approximate centers of the pins.

Many thanks in advance, Chet...

Mine is 35-40mph as well...that's where she is most comfortable.

Ted,

Isn't it a little dangerous to be going that slow in Florida.  I do 70-75 and I have to stay in the right lane so I don't piss off the locals. 

Frank,

200 mile trip in one direction is pretty gutsy. Life in the slow lane sounds like fun.  Its great that you take those trips.

Chet...

Ted,

I made the topic sticky so it will stay on top.  I am interested in the answer.  The cost you stated is pretty high.  If enough are interested I could setup a photo book for a nominal fee.  Just for forum members.
