Putting Burd-Gilman shocks on all four corners of my gow-job.
These are the same snubbers as the original 26-7 snubbers, except they originally mounted right in the center and only used two (one front, one rear).
Here's what it looked like before I put the shocks on. I'm trying to build what I imagine a kid would have done in the early 30's.
Model A 19" wheels? How much lowering do you get in the rear with the kinked spring ends?
Roger, it looks like about 1 1/2" maybe 2". The wheels are 19" Chevrolet.
Cool, Chevy had 6 bolts like wood T hubs, but I guess you still had to make adapters?
Adapters for the rear - 1 1/2" aluminum plates with the bolts going all of the way through from the brake drum side. The lug nuts and wheels then clamp the whole mess together.
The fronts just use the Chevy hubs, which fit right onto a T spindle.
Tom, very nice!!! Did you bend the front axle? What's the head?
Yes, I bent the axle. The head is the Fronty with two intake ports.
Looks nice Tom!
Tom, that is a choice head, not that I need to tell you that. I'm a little envious .
