The panhard bar mount has to be cut off and welded on the other side.
I washed a bunch of weld off with the plasma cutter,but not all of it,tomorrow is another day.
My mag drill arrived today.

Pics of the axle.
darn I missed it. I thought it was hearing aid day, not rear end colonoscopy

Well,i was waiting on my new chineesium mag drill,and the hearing aid appointment was not until 3:45,so i had to do something.
The kids and i jacked the frame up and cribbed it up and then me and my Jap friend slid the axle out.
in an hour it was over.
Then on to washing the welds off of the panhard mount,that kind of work sucks,but it has to be done.
I also have to add a drain in the bottom of the housing and a vent hole in the top,and then reverse the spiders and cam bushing tubes.
they all bolt on,no big deal except for removing the hubs and drums.

I miss you Bill!!
