    Skittles aka: Timber Tiger

    Well let’s see if I can get back into the groove of a build thread. This is not so much a build thread but more of a continuation of my old Timber Tiger build on Pirate. I lost the ability to post pics easily and my documentation stopped.

    So Skittles has been burning fuel for a bit now. Feel free to ask questions if ya want... I’m sure I’ll post up a few action pics from the last few years also.

    So it’s in the shop now. Finally broke a semi float 35 spline 1541H shaft and it’s time to replace it. I had these shafts turned down by Jantz Engineering but I don’t think I’ll do that with my replacement.

        Here you can see the shaft bent. I had a quick vid showing the spiral crack running around the shaft also, but I’m not going to take the time to figure out how to post it.

            I think the reason for the break was a side load hit. I had a aggressive downhill drop that kicked me over to that side when I landed.

ID:	13552 So let’s get that new shaft in.

              Had to press the retainer down first to get the clip out. Click image for larger version

                Bearing and retainer off and studs out, two at a time.

                  Well my newer air/hydraulic press is actually shorter than my last hydraulic press. Not much room to press on the bearing and retainer without a monkey show of tooling involved.

                  So I used a tube slide hammer instead. Bearing went on easy, next is the retainer.

                        Wheel stud duty taken care of with a BFH, vise, and a hardened drift pin...

                          I like to see how much twist I get in my shafts. It’s amazing to see. My other shaft has over 1/4” twist in it, and has been that way for a few seasons now.

                              I had those same shafts and was curious how much they would take to break.

                              I figured if I ever broke one, I'd have Dutchman or moser make some copies.

                              ​​​But then again, maybe it would be better to just put those funds towards full float.

                              How to do you like the 4cyl/auto? What about the gearing? You have the 2.7/2.0 atlas iirc? What ratio do you usually use when doing technical stuff?

                              Oh, also, do you miss leaf springs?
