IMG 0761 IMG 0762 IMG 0763 IMG 0778  Starting to work on lowering the front end with Avis kit
IMG 0790  Setting the rige hight, rear is at about 7 degrees, used 2X4 to hold down the front bfg-bias-photoi-03 1a  500X15 Tire for spare, needed thin tire bfg-bias-photoi-03 1LInk  Spare tire 500X15 Link bfg-biasply-photoc 1a  590X15 Blackwall for Tires
bfg-biasply-photoc 1  590X15 Tire Link 000 0025[1]  I was missing the front engine tin and just ordered one today. photo (3)  The standard grub screw is on the right and I made two out of 50mm bolts Avis2  Bolt is just long enough
IMG 0842  I saw a suggestion to drill a 3/8 hole at each end of the indent.  Stock tube seem to be not quite 5/32 thick.  I drilled a pilot hole first IMG 0844  First pass with the grinder IMG 0845  Ground the slot for the grub screw, cut the indent up to the top of the original screw opening IMG 0846  You can see once I cut it the inner lock moved already.
IMG 0847  On to the other tube IMG 0850  Look at the piece cut out, IMG 0852  Reinstalled beam showing two pieces cut out for grub screw. IMG 0854  Against the bottom stop cleanance of front is about 5 3/4 inch
IMG 0855  Just resting on bottom stops IMG 0856 IMG 0857  Test fit where to locat the Avis adjuster.  I marked the full range, about an inch or 55 degrees, and the center.  My goal was to alight the adjust plate to cove up the opening IMG 0858
IMG 0859  This setting just got the center stop clear and clearance on bottom of frame head flange is about 7 inches IMG 0860  Made some cover plates for the back. IMG 0861  First right height is too low, you can not see air about the tire when looking in the opening. IMG 0866  Current positon, maybe one notch lower once I readjust the back.
IMG 0867 IMG 0862 IMG 0863  Pulled body and readusted up about 4 notches from center.  Back now needs to be lowered a little. IMG 0864

IMG 0954 IMG 0955  5.00X15 IMG 0956  Used as the spare, still a tight fit. IMG 0957  Bridgestone 5.90X15 tires on 5/56 356 Rims
IMG 0958 IMG 0959  Need to get some bullet hub caps IMG 0962 IMG 0964
IMG 0965 IMG 0966 IMG 0971 IMG 0976  I have about 3/4 inch before the spring plate hits the cast tower.  This translates to almost 2 inches of shock travel from center to full up.
IMG 0970  From the rear I took the bump stop and cut off 5/8 of and inch to creat about 1 inch gap and 3/4 to 1 inch of crush before it bottoms out on the frame.  The bump stop is not in the center of the frame tower pocket, not sure why. IMG 0994  Seat frame supports from Summit Racing.  They can be mounted as C or Z brackets.  I chose the Z and will weld them to the flat sides whrer the old rails were. IMG 0995 IMG 0998
