   The Rear of the Chassis.

   

This page deals with the work on the rear end of the chassis.

Firstly I fitted the Differential to the Sub Frame as per the manual.

Then lined it up to the JBA chassis and fitted it.

This was fitted minus the rest of the Independant Rear Suspention parts.

The IRS parts were next along with the rear springs from the donor Sierra, the round spacers that were supplied in the kit are now replaced with square spacers welded to the chassis by JBA. Also added were the bump stops again from the Sierra.
The rear dampers were fitted and the drive shafts connected to the Diff and hubs.

Above is how it looked from the front.

Next I fitted up the rear braking system, using new drums and brake shoes and wheel cylinders and in the photo above you can see the handbrake cable in position. ( supplied as an extra from JBA )

I received the new Build Manual from JBA after I had completed these tasks. However I shall have to do a modification to the Spindle Carriers. This has to be drilled out and tapped to accept an M8 grub screw to secure the conversion bush. These grub screws are supplied in the kit.

This Photo was taken after I fitted the Grub Screw. 

That's it between the bolt head on the left and where the text is.

I still have the brake and fuel piping to run and fit the petrol tank which is slightly smaller than the tourer tank.  At the moment I am concentrating on the engine strip down.

But that is another story.
