spent the weekend finally building my spare wheel carrier and I reckon it turned out pretty good but I am biased :D
the finished product
Image
and the journey . because I only had an idea and no plan it was a case of cut and tack weld one piece at a time
first mount the stub axle
Image
then
Image

Image
Image
I mounted the clasp like this coz I read it on another thread and the idea is it pulls down as well as sideway's to keep it al firm and tight with no rattles
Image
I'm pretty happy with the homemade springloaded lock to hold it open . I tried buying something but couldn't find one
Image
Image
Image
Image
my welding is still below par for neatness but is improving but the penetration is excelent so should be strong as

That looks brilliant Mark!
Top job mate.
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

Re: Mudsharks project 62 busted axle

Unread post by mudshark » April 20th, 2013, 6:35 pm

last time I was home from work we went up to janowen hills for the weekend and it was a good time but on sunday in the area known as "the quarry" at the very top of a verysteep climb about 20 mtrs high I heard a bang and lost forward momentum and rapidly started going backwards I hit the brakes but it started to slide sideways which would have ended up very bad so I had let the brakes off and just steer it backwards to keep it shiny side up it was a fast and scary trip down but we got there . and the culprit a snapped rear left axle it probably wouldn't have been so bad if I had the rear locker in coz at least one wheel would have drive so I put a new axle in today but I can't belive how clean the break was check this out


it was a bit of a trick to get the axle out but I ended up drilling a hole in the axle and tapped a thread then put in a screw and used a dent puller to get it out

but thankfully it's back together and working there's a couple of other things yet to fix it was a bit of a rough weekend
cheers Mark
the site won't let me post pics ?? can't figure why I'll have to try again after dinner

Re: Mudsharks project 62 exhaust repair

Unread post by mudshark » April 25th, 2013, 6:15 pm

another casualty of the easter weekend was the exhaust pipe this was my tail pipe
Image
i had to cut it off at the tracks as you can see she wasn't breathing very well lucky my mate had a hacksaw , I now carry one . I got a quote from Midas $280 for a new tailpipe fitted so I went to the wreckers and paid $22 for a couple of peices of 2 1/2 inch pipe and spent the day adjusting it to suit . I decided to run it over the chassis and out behind the back tyre to hopefully avoid future squashed tailpipe (yes it's a regular occurance) there was a fair bit of cutting and welding cos I don't have a pipe bender but I'm pretty happy with the result anyway some pics first the new pipe you may notice the joiner plates there's now 3 peices which makes life much easier
Image
Image
Image
the new route
Image
Image
and the new exit point
Image
Image
and as an added bonus I can now grease the greasable shackle :D
oh yeah and where I put the front joiner
