Thanks for including us in the buildup of this T-Bolt hybrid, the Silver Bullet would have had nothing for this. Cool Shocked

I  apologize for the delayed response -- Thanks for your comments FalconEH.
 Made a 500 mile round trip to pick up the the 557 for the Fairlane with ported early "A" heads/shaft rockers -- single 1050 gen 3 dominator -- 13.9 compression -- Roller cam -- Danny Bee belt drive.
 I then for my day job had to work nights for a week that screwed up the schedule. -------- Qkiss

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0312
A few tips and ideas for notching tubing. The drawing shows the way we notch tubing. The tube is fit to the ID and not the OD of the tube. It leaves a full depth V notch for a good root weld by eliminating the feather edge as shown in the drawing.  



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0313
A 1 1/2" X .065 tube is being used here to demonstrate the concept. Full OD depth on a 1 1/2" tube would be 1/2 the tube diameter or a 3/4". By fitting to the tube ID and eliminating the feather edge the fish mouth notch with this wall thickness is only 3/8" deep. Above shows the 3/8"depth mark layout on both sides of the tube @ 180 degrees.    



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0314
A fun idea to get your head around. It is not necessary to have a 1 1/2" round tool to notch a 1 1/2" tube.  The tube is being notched on a flat 20" diameter disc sander. The tube is ground to the 3/8' line on one side then flipped 180 degrees using that flat as an index guide to grind to the opposite 3/8"line.      



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0317
After a radius blend on the disc sander and installed in a vise. The sharp edge is tuned up with a 1/2 round file.



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0318
This just shows the file tube relationship. To get the picture it was easier to balance the tube on the file than to balance the file on the tube in the vise.------To not confuse ------ the file work is performed in the vise.    



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0315
After a few licks with the file we have a perfect tube notch. Once you get your head around this concept there will be more to fallow expanding this idea.

I love it great work and craftsmanship. this build is what inspired me to do the stormtrooper 2.0 build the objective is for it to look like my small tire car but full tube chassis.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0342-1
Fitting  a 3/4" tube with a 1 1/2" sanding drum. In the above post we fish mouthed a 1 1/2" tube with a flat disc. Keep this concept in mind.  So why not fit a 3/4 tube with a 1 1/2" sanding drum?



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0344
The way this works is by increasing the attack angle of the tube/drum relationship. The photo shows the concept in action.  



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0329

Now moving on ------- How about a lazy mans way of figuring tube fitting at an angle. Rolling Eyes  Hold the tube to be notched at the desired angle against the tube to fit and measure the gap in line with the tube.    


    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0331
The notching here is being done on a milling machine with a stout mandrel and hole saw. Set the tube up in the mill vice with the same gap as previously obtained and you have your angle.  


25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0332
The cut being made.



   
    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0335
The finished fit.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0324
And one more little tip. When TIG welding a little air relief hole needs to be drilled to relieve the pressure build up due to the heat as the weld is completed to prevent the pressure from blowing out the weld puddle. I like to hide the relief hole in the tube center.The tube in the picture will be moved up to the line for welding. Smile  Smile  Smile  Smile

The primary link the one piece tube that passes through the secondary link. The secondary link is made up of two tubes with a center tunnel tube jigged for welding with an angle iron fixture to hold every thing in alignment tack welding.

    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 IMG_0415-1
The primary tube has left and right thread rod ends on each end of the tube and by loosening the jam nuts the tube can be turned to lengthen or shorten the tube to adjust rear housing position. The secondary tube has the primary tube going through its center so it can not be turned like the primary tube so this photo shows the left and right hand thread turn buckle that accomplishes the same thing made from hex stock.

Cool Cool Cool outstanding work! Only one question,is that x- link track bar setup not going to binde up possible articulation of the rear suspension? I know this isn't a rock crawler Laughing and it's got the arb also....interesting to see how it works.

Thanks for the at-a boys guys.

   Cool 40 ---  That is a very good point about binding with articulation. It has been awhile since the X bar build but I don't remember considering articulation bind.  Rolling Eyes It is some thing to keep in mind though. I believe as a race only set up it will be OK. If it were a street car set up with no anti roll bar it could very well be a problem going in and out of drive ways at an angle for example. IMHO I do not believe Ladder bar cars gain any benefit from a arb. I have seen in the drive way example a ladder bar pro street car not articulate at all and pick a rear tire clear off the ground. In this same type application I have seen the housing brackets tear a big chunk out of the axle tubes.  Crying or Very sad Oops got off on a rant.
   Back to the point -- I have no idea how much articulation this set up will tolerate before binding but I am fairly certain its OK.  





    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 011_zpsxzsifchv
The anti roll bar is 1 1/4" diameter X 20" long



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 010_zpshpc3zeg5
The arms a splined and clamped -- No movement here.



    25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 2 012_zpsc660yrjx
With this set up articulation will be minimal if any at all. ------ But you know what they say about your BRILLIANT idea. If you try it and it does not work. Guess what ------ Scrap it ---- Its time for a new idea.  Embarassed  Embarassed
