Road Kill...

A poor little groundhog met his demise when the drag link on Lil' Pepe caught him while out for a drive.  Unfortunately, the groundhog wasn't that little and bent it.

The axle uses early ford spindles and with them, the drag link installs from the bottom.  Normally, the original Ford axle has a bit of a drop to it and there is no issue. However, with a true straight axle, the drag link is the lowest part of the car.  So, time to make it install from the top.

The original holes were welded up so that they can be re-drilled a reamed with the taper on the correct side.

Hopefully, we should be able to get everything reinstalled tonight.
