Project Swedish Banger Tudor
.I will use tube shocks so I will not need the dog bone attachment so it was cut off. It makes the spring hanger look cleaner anyway.
I will use polyurethane bushings in the shackles so these sleeves have to be removed. After 87 years they tend to be kinda stuck but a little heat and measured amount of violence will bring them out.
These are 1940 Ford rear torque rods and they are much stronger and they look better than the model A part. Since I am going to loose the torque tube and run a open drive shaft, I will need some sort of torque rods for the rear axle as well.
I had to angle the left motor mount to clear the location of the Vega steering box. Maybe not pretty but it works. Chrome Swedish valve cover on dirty motor for effect!
There…engine is mounted.
I am telling you…Henry planned for a Volvo with four speed overdrive in the model A chassis!
Sometimes you have to roll it out for perspective. Now I realized that I need to make the trans cross member the attachment point for both front bones AND the 1940 rear radius rods.
