Inching along here.

I built the carrier bearing housing from deign to finished product. I designed it to use two 63mm sealed bearings from the parts house and some Spicer components for the 1410 U-joint. It's pretty similar to a lot of other carrier bearings on the market, but I wanted the tabs in a different orientation. And I just so happed to have a 7 inch round piece of 7075 laying around. The only necessary modification to the Spicer part was shortening the yoke due to the thicker bearings than the midshaft was designed for. Next, I am attaching the yoke to the other end of the bearing and truing it.

My 94 did it all the time just dumping smoke or rolling coal lol at the flats. Was going to add a catch can and do away with the pcv valve, but its been so long ago I think that was the issue with mine.

No real progress, but a little more design/machine work.

This flange will be used to adapt a 1410 flange to my Toyota transfer case. It’s made of 1045 steel. It will be pretty tight to the mount in the front but I have about 3/8” of an inch of clearance.

Are you putting this between the 2 as an adapter, or going to press/weld the splines in the center to be able to bolt it directly to the case/output?

Bolted/ sandwiched in. The counter bored holes are the Toyota 60mm x60mm. And the threaded holes are for the 1410 flange.

I’ve been slacking off but will refocus this week. Starting on the steering mount for the front axle. Worked out the boxed mount on solid works and plasma’d it out. It’s a little short and low but my threaded risers for the ram will work this out.

Since the steering mount was a little low on the axle I wanted to make some threaded risers. 1.5” was about the minimum height that allowed me to clear the diff cover and keep it tucked back. I used some 1.5” square bar. Milled the ends and tapped the holes. It worked out and if it clears, it clears. The Clevis is the closest portion throughout the steering cycle and it clears the solid diff cover by about 1/8”.

Going to tie the 3 into each other with some 3/16 plate for strength, weld area and to hopefully make the design a bit more visually pleasing.

Got at it this weekend, and I am finally making good progress.

I wasn’t a fan of my first seat mount design, so I decided to change them up. Also, added in my floor supports while I had the seats out.

This morning I drilled and tapped my steering linkage and threw it on the axle. Still need to shorten one up (apparently I can’t read a tape measure) and polish them. This axle looks heavy. I keep meaning to weigh it, but forget to grab the hanging scale. This is going to be a majority of the weight in the rig.

Next up, winch mount. Had some 3/8 bar stock laying around which I used to support it between the 2 tubes.

Once the winch was on, I moved to the regulator mount for the propane.

Rest of the day will be spent designing mounts for my radiator, steering reservoir, steering orbital, steering cooler, and anything else I can think of.

No buggy progress this weekend. The days are narrowing before me and my fiancée tie the knot in April!

Since I am making a 15 minute move down the road to Stanfield, I am currently working on the existing 24x30 project shop that was already on the property where we will be living. When we first stared on it, it had no electricity, a dirt floor and a lot of junk. Now it has a 60 amp sub panel, full wiring, and as of this weekend a concrete floor.

The pour this weekend was quite interesting. It started at about 9:30 when the concrete crew arrived and promptly realized the weeks and weeks of rain in NC has caused the ground to become quite soft. Their 3500 dually was stuck in a relatively flat spot. We pulled it out with the tractor and on they went. The concrete truck arrives at 10, and we direct them up the driveway to a hopeful and different patch of non-gravel driveway. The beautiful 60k pound concrete truck made it a whopping 6ft off of the drive way while we had the 65 hp 4wd tractor we had no chance. We unloaded the truck one tractor bucket at a time, 10 buckets per 4 yards, About 200 yards from the building. Intermittently, trying to remove the truck from the mud with different equipment until the last, when we decided to bring out the excavator, which takes a while considering it only travels at about 2mph. We had the truck fully unloaded at that point and the excavator made quick work of it. The truck was on it way and the building had the concrete. All in a days work.

I don’t have much to show for work on the buggy this weekend. I did pickup my rear axle from getting gears and a spool. Also, I worked on some new (larger) garage door frames and insulated ceiling.

You getting any water in the shop on a good steady rain that comes down that hill? Looking at that bottom picture, may be worth grading that down a bit about 10ft before the garage doors and then have the grade come back up to the doors. This would create a little trench and allow the water to flow around the shop and down the left side (when facing the shop doors from the outside) of the shop.

Ask @Chris_Keziah how much he loves dealing w/ water in his shop since the PO did a wonky job on the build / grading.

Not yet, but what you can’t see is there is a giant hill to the right of this pic that drains water right aginst the foundation making some slightly damp spots. The plan is to cut it out and put a slight V beside the building that gets more gradual and turns in front of the building to remedy what you’re talking about as well... I’ve got a lot of grading to do and it’s on the list for sure. I’m planning to set up a 24x30 3 wall carport beside it, so I’ve got to make a flat spot for it.

That was my next comment. Make it happen or the water will make what it wants to make happen...and you won't like it.

It's absolutely joyous 🙄 Next shop will be at the top of a grade for sure.

I'm getting there. Got side tracked with life and other projects. With a few good weekends of work, I'll be out wheeling you on every trip with these bald tires. No worries.

Finally! In the new space and getting a move on. Axles are mostly together and under the chassis. The shock mounts are in the design phase and almost ready to be cut. Wheels are coming in Thursday, so It should be a roller this week (with some sick bald tires). The plan is to finish up some tube work this weekend.

Currently sitting at 18" belly height with 40" tires and 3 inches of uptravel. Thinking about raising that to 20" belly height with 5 inches of uptravel since it is primarily a trail buggy.
