Super A adjustable front end

Postby Riverman » Fri May 15, 2020 8:22 pm

I am going to be over haling my Super A's front adjustable front end. The holes on the axel tubes have become elongated. This make for difficult steering if on axel tube cocks one way and the other in the other direction.
My plan is to remove the tubes. Weld fill the holes enough that they can be drilled out to the correct size.
Is this the correct procedure to do this? I rather not take the simple fix of just spot welding the axel tube to the outer tube in the correct position.

I'm not a welder, but I think there is a technique where you insert a copper rod of the correct diameter and weld around it. The weld doesn't stick to the copper rod and you don't have to drill through hard weld metal.

I weld the bad ones up, stick it on the Bridgeport and use a good hole that is not worn to index the drill bit so I drill it at the right angle, you can do the same on a drill press

Thanks for the reply. The drill press method is what I intend to use. I do some welding quite often. Have not hear of the copper rod insert method.

Thanks Dale: I might try that method.
