40*F outside. Not bad in the house. My wife has been fighting a sinus - cold deal for over a week. A chilly house is not helping her. We have smalll room heater, and the oven is used too




Leave the door shut on the oven - bake cookies and bread all day. That will keep her warm and keep oxygen:) ok in the house...........Smile

Disc brakes on Econoline spindles. Back on to this project , I shelved it about 2 yrs ago.

use of guide lines from a fellow : Roger. Carnut knows him as I recall?

Setup would not fit. Rotor disc was too close to bracket. No room for brake inner pad. Shave down the pad material provided space, seemed like wrong method.

Performed long search for different rotor with offset more to my needs. Found Mustang rotor, 1996 to 2003 ?? ... I bought rotor for 2000 Mustang.

Machine work to fit rotor over the hub. Enlarge wheel stud openings to fit the studs in the hub.

.060 shim to move caliper bracket out from spindle to center the rotor in the caliper. Fits well . now.

Drag car only. Not much IF any street use. Straight axle I was given from an old dragster from local known racer

OldSub, I'm VERY glad to hear you're in recovery mode. Cancer scares are right at the top of the bad list.

My disc to econoline spindles was a $9.99 speedway weld on bracket for 3" axle tube for a GM metric caliper . Aerostar awd rotors . A little cutting , drill 2 holes to match the spindle . Machine two 1/2" spacers to space the caliper out to the rotor . looks good fits fine .

gave the ol 1959 Triumph some attention today. Rolled it into the yard. Blew off and out a large amount of dirt n dust.

I am thinking : single seat in rear, roll cage, tube chassis with front axle out in front of the car, large tyres half tucked in the body

Too many doors for drags... Jeep frame it? Four big not huge tires, low center of gravity, alter wheel openings to jive, and go freak people out at autocross events!

I washed 3 vehicles, serviced 3 motorcycles and winterized the lawn mower and weed eater. It was a pretty good day for December.

Listing more stuff on ebay. Geez, where is all this stuff coming from?

Tony, I'll have to get some pix of my friends' Austin. It's got a V8, but can't remember if it's Mopar or Chevy (I think Chevy), 5 speed and huge tires inside the fenders. No back seat.

I worked on the outside furnace project today. It is going well and I should finish up with it and install it this week. I bought the duct work on Saturday and the metal for the outside shell on Friday. It will be the same colors and material that is on the outside of my shop.

Everything is taking much longer to do than it did just a few years ago.

I sure like my new plasma cutter. It has made fabricating easier and better.

I am anxious to get on to a car project.

John

Outside wood furnace is progressing. I have it covered in sheetmetal to match the shop. I will make the legs and feet next and then do some electrical wiring before it goes outside to its pad. Maybe it will be operational next week.

Found this on the front of the house... oh boy. I'm convinced by the tragectory that it was a stray. It only went through the first sheet of glass but I sure can't find what did it.

Did I hear you say you were not getting along with the neighbors across the street?

Odd that the projectile wasn't there. Attempted break in with a rod?

What stops the paint from burning off? Is there that much insulation in the burner?

The fire box is in the center. Then there is an air plenum surrounding it , where the air is circulated and heated. The metal plenum box is covered in insulation, and then the outside sheet metal, that you see in the picture. There are two inches of foil back insulation in the sidewalls and four inches on the top. The old boiler furnace, that I am replacing, would heat the shop and have snow accumulate on the top because of this high quality insulation.

As a side note, this furnace will take a 5 long stick of wood. I will not use pieces that long, but I could.

John

extra doors make entry & exit easier
