Here is the 5-link upright / bearing / Cv drawn the old fashion way.  ;D

The old-fashioned way?!? I don't see a pencil and paper!

First the parts:

















I like the spacing, not a midboard, but narrower than any microstub.  :)

Made it to heavy.  It's 1/4" but would have been fine with 3/16".

Thanks to LiveWire for the EMPI CVs at a great price.  :)

Also the Timken bearing unit is #515017.

28 lbs.  Just for the weldment.  :-\  It's V-8 ready.

DS scared me with his 3/8" bending, but with all the triangulation I think that I could have got by with less.

I should have weighed my mids but I'm guessing about the same though.

Engine

You going to have floating caliper's on that car?  And I only can pick out three points.  Is it going to be like a five link with one link gone missing on each side.   ??? ???

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.
