Popeye sits about 4" too high in the back. I think I know why. It's a large drum Ruckstell with a Hassler setup like I have never seen before. Normally the pancake type is used on the 26 - 27 rear ends. All this stuff clears the brake drums and wheels just fine but the car sits way high!

Royce, I think you are correct. The style in your photo are for 25 and earlier. The pancake style is for the 26-27 models ...

I didn't think those would go onto a '26/'27 rear end?! I would check it over very carefully.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Royce,they look like the saddles are to far outboard. Is the top of saddle up against the spring leaf end? If not,you may be able to shift them some. They will raise the body some .

Jack,

There is about 12" of clearance from the top of the tire to the bottom of the rear fenders. The last thing I need is for it to be higher! I am going to install a proper set of pancake Hasslers when I pull the rear end to inspect it.

Can someone post a picture of the pancake hasslers. I have never seen them.
Thanks

Any body got an advert for these shocks? Could be one of the "advantages" of using them might be the added lift.

All the blueberries squished out of my pancake hasslers on the first bump. Not the way to go.

I wonder - maybe my brackets are correct for Pancake Hasslers and someone installed the early beehive springs?

No, your "hangers" are for the "beehive" style, Royce. I believe I have some "bits & pieces" of pancakes laying around - let me know which direction you intend to go.

Steve,

I have a rear set of the beehives but am not sure if the ones I have are for big drum or small drum. Will look at them tonight and let you know.

I think the set on the car must be the ones for small drum / beehive based on what you are saying.

I'll try & take a couple photos of both types of rear hangers to show the difference - might be a day or two.

Here is the set I have. Are they for big drum?

Yes, they will fit a large drum, Royce.

Supposedly, some types of accessory outside brakes interfere with the mounting arms so one needs to "dry fit" to be sure.

OK I tried the pancake Hasslers and they won't clear the drums. They are for a small drum rear too.

Steve I would e interested to see if you have the proper hangers that go on the backing plates for big drum.

I found a thread where Larry Young installed a set like the ones I have and ended up with a similar problem:
