    I'm getting ready to have some spring perches welded on to a 14ff from a 1 ton. What I need is the measurement from center pin to center pin between the leaf springs. Thanks.

    I have a 12B on the ground and center pin to center pin is 43". The new perches on the 14b have to move out aproximately 3/4" each.

    Fred,

    Thanks for the info.

    BTW, how's you conversion coming along? I haven't been able to work on my K5 for the last month so it's still not done.

    Not as fast as I would like, but am going to take my time and do it right. I am in the process of sanblasting and painting the axles. The 14B went pretty quick, but the 60 is a little slower going because of the knuckles etc. Have you seen Jon's axles yet?

    I haven't seen his axles yet, but he called me yesterday and he told me that he was gonna start going through them. He also told me that he was going to email me some pictures of the axles and some boggers he just bought.
