    Huh, that's an interesting set up you have there .

    The front steer axle drums are held on with the lugs, the rear drivers are not, they use 8 bolts to hold the drum to the hub .

    I had some drums and good brake shoes left over from a part out I did last year, so the parts cost me nothing

    Yes to welding wire. The 4/0 is probably the cable that would carry 100% duty cycle and drop to maybe 70- 80% with 2/0 gauge. You are running cable the entire way, both + and - , not going to frame ground aren't you? It would be nice to have a switch but a plug-in, while very manual, works too.

    VR, that is the CTIS air line. While I have not had one apart yet, I believe the air passage goes under the inner bearing. They take a standard bearing and grind in air slots..... COST A FORTUNE.

    It will be interesting to see one apart. I am not using CTIS on my A3 4x4 but potentially could make it a manual system with 4 small regulators.

    Moved her, about 5 ft to the right and at a 45 degree angle... prepping to take her out for her first voyage of the season...less then 3/4 inch gas in the tank prevented me from running up to the station for some petrol.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...49665bcd0a.jpg

    I got a extra set of welding cable laying around for my sa200. as soon as I cut them, I'll drop a huge beam on the ones im using and need them. So I can just buy new cables and I got spare 3/8 inch eyes around here somewhere to crimp on.

    The Sherpa seems to be a good winch. The performance data are impressive...line pull 25.000 with 4.6ft/min at 210 A
    Unfurtunately not availble in Europe.

    How much was shipping on the Sherpa? Did hope you do a build thread on the install, I'd like to see how you skin that cat

    Installed some extra 'blind spot' mirrors today, everything helps when driving a left hand drive truck over here in the U.K.

    M-715, 1/4 way through restoration, its on the back burner as I go through and finish some other projects. The blue trailer does house a lot of parts for my one of my other projects-VW aircooled bugs and buses...can never have enough projects, especially if you get them cheap to start.
