Ditch the ammeter. Stay tuned to what I will be doing with mine!!!!
Well thats not going to work! I need a dropped TRE..... These are too long obviously.... Ideas anyone?
My research says its a 7 degree taper I think.
Cut you tube down to make it fit. If you have a tap to thread tube more to compensate.
Yeah that's last resort I think. I don't think I have a 1/2x28 die....
should be bigger than 1/2" i would think
Pretty sure it's 1/2x28, but left hand one side too
ok..just sounds small....the ones on my truck are 7/8"
not the sleeve the upper solid part, I think it's solid , where the stop bracket is. Can't you make that shorter to compensate for drop TRE. ? Then just re-thread with a die. ?
The threads I'm referring to are circled in red....that thread into the adj sleeve circled in blue....the part Jeff is referring to is where the green arrow points....that rod should be left handed threads I think...and can be shortened to make up for the longer drop end
I still think it should be bigger than 1/2"
Yes exactly, I just am exploring ideas before I hack a part that's probably unobtainium. And left handed big dies aren't going to be cheap....
Correction 11/16-18 threads
Couple weld- in bungs and some DOM tubing, similar to your panhard bar.
Any chance you could run that TRE on this end and flip the tie rod around? Obviously you'd have to get the reverse thread of what you have.
That's not a bad idea!! Off to go looks for bungs (hehe)
I'll look at flipping, have no idea of that's possible. Obky reason I need the TRE's is to drop that whole bar. It's hits the frame dumped
Is your new end lht or rht ? Hard to see threads thru the blue sleeve...
I have one if each (had to buy a set) but should be LH on the drivers I think.
What we're getting at is will they fit here....
Yeah I see it, I don't think so, they will hit the other link
Looks like Speedway has just what I need. threaded LH one end RH the other. Factory the outer on the drivers side is RH thread, inner is LH, so I should get a new inner that's LH also if I don't want to run it goofy and flip things around. They are 7.25" which looks just right!
Ok so I am reading up on Ammeter removal.... Should I just rewire this beast? American Autowire seems to be the best reviewed universal kit.... Getting rid of the glass fuses doesn't hurt my feelings. But maybe that's overkill also. I'm going Hamilton TBI so that will take care of most engine side of things.
But for the basics:
Batt+ to solenoid
Solenoid to starter B (with jumper to S)
Circuit 17 (starter control) to solenoid.
6ga (4ga?) from alt B to batt +
circuit 2 to ammeter (this powers everything inside AFAIK) Pull off gauge, leave connected to other wires there (to keep power to fuse panel dash etc).
Disconnect circuit 14 (runs from ammeter back to BHC) leave it off.
Disconnect 14 from starter to BHC, remove.
I have the American autowire for mine ...havnt installed it yet but it looks great in the box....15 circuit Is what i got
