I was not happy with what I could accomplish using the McNerny attachment using the extended kingpin so I decided to try what Mack Cole suggested and make a new spindle. I was going to post some pictures but that has vanished.
Send 'm to me, and I'll post 'em, Les.
Anxious to see what you finally come up with on those front brakes.
One more to come.
I am ready to send my order!
Les, what angle are you using between the spindle and the king pin?
This spindle has 5 degrees of camber to accommodate 3/4" of increased wheel offset.
Les, is it necessary to harden the spindle?
The originals aren't. Interestingly every original spindle I have looked at lately has had a hardness test done on it originally by Ford (the "dent" about 5/32" diameter). This spindle was made from heat treated 4140 so it should have good properties for this application.
