Hi,
Would anyone have a jig or drawing dimensions on welding new spring perches on WT diff Housing to suit NT chassis?

Could we chat about RUF conversations at the next shed tech session please?

I have a jig but it only works for the rear and only when bolted in to my jig as a full floater, sorry.

Normal procedure is to remove one at a time and keep the angle the same as they’re moved in*. Unfortunately they sort of overlap so you can’t really use one to reference the other. Measure 45 times weld once.



* unless you want to add caster at the front, which I’d recommend.

I finished a wt to nt spacing conversion not long ago. I'm a real noob. Steve provided a lot of good advice. Feel free to PM me with any questions you might have. I did build a jig of sorts for the front but my work is unproven at this stage so keep that in mind.
