    Thanks Az, very nice of you.

    Yesterday was spent fine tuning the fitment of the moving parts.

    Here's the driving shaft with the bearing ready to be fitted in the gear housing.

    This is the wheel shaft in its bearing

    This will be in turn attached to the drum that will interface with the wheel*.

    This whole assembly will be attached to the axle

    Inserted the screws for the axle and spring

    131.jpg

    To realize that it would not slip in. So I had to open up the springs

    132.jpg

    To finally figure that I did all this work on the front side while I only have the rear axle.

    A couple of minutes later, everything is in it's proper place.

    and a sneak peak at a tire being printed.

    should receive M2-3 mm screws tomorrow, Will be able to finish assembling the rear train.

    That would've been cool. I did like my Mecano game when I was young.

    The tire did not come out as well as I wanted. One side is perfect the other is crappy.

    So I came up with this plan

    Made a timelapse of the design so far if you are curious to see how that goes. You can speed up the video to 1.5 the usual speed. It will be shorter

    Got my M2-3 screws late this afternoon.

    I assembled the whole rear end. Very happy with the result.

    The 1:6 scale will print all week. For example, a tire will take 9 hours to print. I will start modeling the front axle.

    This is an epic to say the least! A tremendous amount of work you are putting in.

    bb.... here might be more than you want or, you may want more. Let me know. This is a basic IDEA of what the driveshafts are made up like. I think the most important thing for you will be the diameter of the driveshafts. They were VERY small in diameter. A trend that makes the original driveshafts easy to spot. This is because by modern engineering standards, they should have been larger in diameter. Most replacements are much larger in diameter as the small 1.25" outside diameter .120" wall tubing is not real available anymore. Now a day's we would call classic Jeep Driveshafts PTO shafts or "Power Take Off". If you get the driveshaft diameter wrong a purist will spot that right away!

    I had to take a photo. The file is to big for the forum. PM your email and I will send it to you in a Word Doc.
