After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

New convert under way  - Page 15 Empty torsion tube

Post  kevin924kevin on Mon Feb 01, 2016 11:06 am

As you can see by the pics, I have started the process of the torsion tube hoop. I will be adding a tube at 45 degree angle of each side of the hoop down on to the TT. Where the trailing arm mounts that will be cut away as per the lines on the tape. I am going to inset 1/4" plate inside the mount and out on the the end of the TT. There will be a gusset welded to the hoop and carry on out on to the top of the trailing arm mount. This should be plenty strong.

Well progress on the torsion tube is moving along. It's all layed up and tacked. I will pull the unit out tonight to make the welding a lot more simple. Once that is done, it will be time to cut out the center and fab the plates. If all goes well it should be completed by mid next week. Following that it will be time for final fitment of the other cross member and tack that in, lay up the balance of the cage etc, and weld. once that is done I will set the motor and trans back in to finalize the trans mount.

Incredible project Shocked
Don't think I have ever seen so much effort being put into a 924! But great to see that after several years, you still keep working Smile

thank you. I wish my time was better, but raising a family and running a business takes a lot of my time. My goal is to have it sitting on four wheels and running by June.

Still one of my favorite builds to watch. Great job Kevin.
The handling should be incredible with the more weight moved rearwards and wider tires.

I'm still curious what the actual/ideal length will be once your trans is set. You may get lucky and be able to use the C5 axle shafts. Remember, you can trim them down some.

Rob, that wont be the case. I have had the C5 axles in place with the trans sitting were it needs to be and they stick out into the bearing area of the trailing arms. Now in saying that I don't no how much they can be shortened. They appear hollow but I am going to check that out.

Did some reading today and the C5 axles are solid, so should be able to shorten and have new splines cut in for the 930 CV joint I would think, but I will confirm that hear with my machine shop.

What is your best guesstimate on what the lengths will be end-to-end?

Rob, I will measure the vette axles and provide a guestimate.

It would be where the Tri-lobe sets normally to the CV adapter

Rob my best guess right now would be 18 1/2" the vetted axle is approx 21 1/2" it sat flush plus or minus to the face of the outside edge of the trailing arm. The depth inward to where the axle will sit is about 3 1/4".

Do you have any idea on how many hours you have spent on this project?
