"AP" General Discusion / sand rail design
« Last post by Baloo on August 02, 2018, 02:43:06 AM »
ok I have dropped my engine into my sxs and I don't like the car subframes now they look …………….. er well  pants,  anyway I always saw this as a prototype and might remake the chassis with out using the subframes but that led me to start looking at pictures of sand rails they look much neater with a transaxle as it all appears uniform or balanced, maybe this is what I should build after the sxs, so the question is does anyone here sell plans or kits or could we do a virtual design its probably the suspension I will struggle with, no sand dunes over here so suspension travel can be modest  maybe 12to 18 inches ?  would still be a car engine and box probably the audi v6 as it comes with a transaxle and is fairley short so it dosent push the seats to far forward                                                                                                                                                                                            thanks   Andy

That is a sleeve for the piñon bearing. What happens is the hole gets egged out from the thrust. So to save the case you bore the hole out and put a sleeve in it. When putting the bearing back in you need to heat the sleeve and use a press to make sure it goes in all the way.

Hey guys,  I'm back from the dead!

I will be there this time! My wife suggested that I take a vacation with the rail. 😁

My truck and trailer are around 31'. Does anyone want to split the cost of a spot?  I'm going to show up on Sunday, the 21st, and I'll head out on Thursday.

the two things I see that looks like thy added was a bearing retainer on the main pinon bearing. and he tigs the shift forks in place, after adjusting them. I will get some pics of the bearing retainer tonight it could be factory. but it sure looks like it has been machined out.
