BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

Zach, last time I PM you we had problems with the pic. I know 1 other person interested in this as well, so thought I would just post.

Can your friend still do this? If not, maybe he can at least get the material, cut to size? I would be able to handle from there. $50 or so, plus shipping if he does it all, let me know... This would be a tapered block replacement, giving 1" lift.

Re: BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

If you put a 4 degree slope on both top and bottom wouldn't it make ti so both top and bottom where 2 inches from center hole/pin to front edge?

Edit: Correction 2 and 3/16 and the angles of pin and hole would be evenly balanced across block center line.

Re: BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

That's right Zach.

Don't confuse us here, it has to be just as drawn. If done this way, the block will keep my axles (TIRES) where they should be relative to the wheelwell. And, the driveshaft angle the way it was designed (more or less) from the factory. This will provide 1" lift, and will never crack, though the pin could still shear.

Just let me know Zach, and thanks!

Re: BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

Judging by the thickness then, you would cut and stack one of these on the existing block?

Re: BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

If he says he can do it for the about $50 do you want me to just have him start in on it, or do you want me to report back to you on what he says/thinks before i tell him to go ahead and make them?

Re: BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

No, I thought we said do away with the pot metal. I was talking about welding then machining to your specs. Just my Guess. I'm not sure where to get a 2 or 3" plate at?! [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] but I'm gonna stop at a machine shop that's on the way to work this week and ask. Can I use your diagram? It looks good to me.

Re: BurnedBronco, tapered block diagram!

Zach, YES, have him start. Just let me know your address or his via PM and I will send a check once we have a deal.

slickerthanyou, if just looked like in your pic you did not have enough thickness for the one thicker end. If it is to be a 1" lift, that end would need to be 2 3/8" thick, preferably out of solid steel.

Feel free to use my diagram. If you find that the machine shop has the material, have them do as little work to it as possible. Remember, they will probably charge you in the $50-65/hr range, so your blocks could get expensive, which is why Zach's friend is a reasonable way to go about this.
