That's Great Tom,

That was a trade that was a win/win for both of us.  My car is sitting perfect with the new springs and correct shackles.   :)

Thanks for sharing!  Also looking for a better way to share pics since Photobucket is now charging $$$.


Do you want to play with the Photo Gallery I put up ?  Let me know.  You can't beat the price.

Is it the same as the Restoration Supply mat that John is talking about.  Also do you sell this mat ?  and if so what is the cost ?

Thanks Dave for the input.

The software I loaded is open source and gives the user the ability to make their folder viewable to the public, to registered users, or private. You can also create your own folders.   I haven't played with the software and was hoping that some users might play with it.  I think it has potential and being open source we have the ability to make modifications although I try to stay away from doing that because it makes it a problem every time you upgrade the base software.

The software was free and I still have a lot of open drive space before I need to expand the hosting account.  Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.  I will set you up as Crazydave and will email you an initial password which I believe you can change when you log in.  Poke around and don't worry about breaking anything.  I'll also give you the user name of a test user so you can see what other users see if when they log in.

PS... Thanks for the kind words, Chet...

BTW... The hosting costs are pretty reasonable but you are right in that the maintenance and user assistance can be very time consuming.  I spent about 12 hours yesterday working on our forum outage.  Actually the Forum has been in trouble free operation since March of 2007.  Ten years ! Boy time flies.

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 ?

Dear All,

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.

Just an FYI...

I am looking into Photo Sharing Software that I can put on this server.  I am investigating whether it would be cost effected from a shared standpoint.  I personally support this forum but a Photo book with multiple users would definitely increase the bandwidth.  Not a big deal just evaluating the costs of installation and maintenance.

I will post details when I have a better understanding.  Definitely NO ADS...

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...
