I hate bad trips too!
I miss that video , current linky for us ???
got my kids to watch it for 20 min the 1st time i found it lol.told them the end was really cool.
Wow, that is a bad trip!
Albino Black Sheep rocks my world.
i kept watching it for a couple minutes! lol grinning the whole time, then waiting for it to end... lol Dont know whay i laughed, but its funny for some reason
This is the best one.
Click "watch this movie"
it's not original to albinoblacksheep -- though they have the Wheeeeeeee! song -- but is in fact from Weebl:
He also has the fabulous Football Badgers:
Read carefully the map of the UK
Also good: Magical Trevor, and On The Moon.
(And EricM and DesertRat, do I *seem* like I'd do drugs? My life is weird enough without them! )
LOL! I gotta admit, I had no idea what your post was about. I thought to myself, Aaron doesn't seem like the kinda guy who does drugs, he's to busy trying to fit a dually axle under a SRW bed ... but here's all the proof!
Glad to find out I was wrong. All though, I'm not sure if those videos are much better! But I guess it's nice background music while your photochopping your truck together. Yeah, yeah ... if it wasn't for the rain, we'd both be out wrenching.
Well ... I ended up with dually drums and SRW hubs, so it's a 67" WMS dually
And the rain doesn't stop me ... just replaced the wiper motor for my trip up to Mendocino tomorrow.
What did you do about the backing plates? Did you have to relocate the flange they bolt to on the axle tube?
Yup, I moved the flanges back all of about 2". To use the 3.5" dually drums I have to use the dually backing plates, which have a little offset in them ... and had different parking brake cables than mine, grrr.
I could have moved them back another 2", and used the dually hubs, which would make it a C&C axle ... but I wanted access to the bleeder screws, and kinda like the inbetween look. It's not a C&C dually, but it's not a super-wide rig either.
Ummm ... I still gotta do a real write-up, but here's some pix:
Hmmmm, does the inside tire clear the inner wheel well?
How much does the outter tire extend past the sheetmetal?
If you had a FULL load, would the outter tire hit the sheetmetal before the leaf spring bottomed out?
How hard was it to move the flange back?
You know what I'm thinkin' ........... dually work truck with no fenders for the guys to tear off!
Oh ... wheel wells were tubbed in 3" each side... maybe 3.5", whatever two ridges of the bed is. Looked like the inner tire would JUST clear the sheetmetal if I took off the lip there, but it woulda been ugly. Anyway, I know you wanted the 48" inside width, so I do lose that.
I don't think I have the gear to simulate that kinda load on the truck ... but I don't see the outer tire hitting, maybe if it was articulating
The flange was easy; Kert @ DIY4X made 'em for me ... grind the old ones off (tiring, but boring easy), then locate the new ones and burn 'em on.
