Default Re: Flathead project

I'm going to my shop today and will try to get some pictures of the heim joint setup on a car I'm building. The nice thing about the heim joints is that you can get them in a lot of sizes and varieties. They have rebuildable joints, joints with grease zerks, teflon joints, etc. The one I'm using is rated at 80,000 lbs. It's set up in just about the same way as the ball setup in "JSeery" 's examples, except that I have the heim directly below the pivoting cross piece in the U-joint.
