56 Ford
« on: July 08, 2020, 09:38:32 AM »
Anyone have an idea how to lower the front suspension on a '56 Ford? Spindle has two holes, using the top one just doesn't do it. This is a mild '50's custom I'm working on. I just know some racer will figure it out.

  I'm guessing your working with the AMT/ERTL '56 Ford Victoria kit....
          there's a couple of possibilities....
  1)  put the round peg on the brake drum in the top hole (raised position) and rotate it so that indent portion is pointing up.....keep in mind you will have attach the pin that goes through the spindle to the brake drum and then remove enough of the pin so that it is flush with the back side of the brake drum.

  2)  remove the locating peg and simply attach the brake drum to the spindle at the desired height.....you will still have to remove enough of the pin so that it is flush with the brake drum.     
The only heroes in Washington are buried just outside of it in Arlington
