DETERMINING STANCE OR RIDE ATTITUDE

IDEALLY, BEFORE YOU DISASSEMBLE YOUR PROJECT, PLACE IT ON JACK STANDS AT THE RIDE ATTITUDE YOU WANT. TYPICAL HOT ROD/STREET ROD STANCE IS NOSE DOWN. TYPICALLY, WE USUALLY SET THE FRAME AT THE FRONT, FOUR INCHES LOWER THAT AT THE REAR. THIS GIVES A NICE STANCE FOR THE MOST PART. ONCE YOU DETERMINE WHAT ATTITUDE YOU WANT, MEASURE THE FRAME FRONT AND REAR, RECORD THIS NUMBER AND SET THE FRAME UP AT THIS ATTITUDE WHILE MOUNTING YOUR ENGINE/TRANS AND ALL SUSPENSION.

2: Can I still use my stock gas tank with your kit?

Yes, the rear mounts don't interfere with it. On the rare occasion the there is any problem, the tank can be moved forward slightly.

3: Can I install this kit with the body on the frame?

Yes, the kit is able to be installed with the body on, although not as easily. On the 35 & 36, the floor covers where the front mount is so, a bolt-in kit is about the only way but, the upper bolts are difficult to install on all body on installations and so the top of the mount could be welded from below. On 37-40, the floor is above the mount and so weld-in or bolt-in can be used, with the weld-in actually easier.

DETERMINING REAR AXLE WIDTH:

Determining the width of the rear axle on any car requires a lot of information. Several factors come in to play here, whether the car is fendered or fenderless. Also the year and body style, and wheel/tire choice. If the car is to be fenderless, the wheel and tire combo become the major factors. All that is necessary is to determine the wheel/tire combo and make sure that it clears the body when body roll occurs. Usually, one to one and a half inches clearance between the inside of the tire and the fender well is adequate. These requirements are necessary on a fendered car too but, clearing the fenders is a dimension that also comes in to play. Fortunately, clearance between the tire and fender is less critical and does not need to be nearly as much. Pretty much, as long as the tire and fender don't make contact with each other is enough clearance. As the body rolls, the tire moves away from the fender. Remember, when ordering a rear suspension kit from WEEDETR, we can supply a new 9" rear assembly that is built to the specifications for the car and has the suspension brackets already installed.

2. Can I install this kit with the body on?

Yes, there is no problem installing this kit with the body still mounted to the frame.

3. Do I need lowering block with your kit? ,

No, unless you are building a "tail dragger" style custom.

1935-48 wide X-member kit:

1: Will this kit allow me to use an overdrive automatic transmission?

Yes, that is what the kit was designed around, that and the large heavy duty transmissions.

2: Can I use this kit even if I plan to stay with the axle front suspension?

Yes, but you will need to split the wishbone as there is no provision for the center ball mount, plus most late transmissions need the pan clearance.

3: Can the transmission be removed from the bottom with this kit?

Yes, again that was one of the criteria when this was designed.

4: Can this kit be installed with the body still on the frame?

Yes, it can but we really don't recommend it. You need to extremely careful when removing the original center section so as not to damage the floor. It can be done but is much easier to do with the body off.

Volare Emergency Brake Cable Brackets

1: Do these brackets hold the end of the emergency brake cable because there isn't anything to hold them on my calipers?

Yes, these brackets hold the wheel end of the emergency brake cable housing since the original one is part of the spring mount in the car.

2: Where do these brackets mount?

These mount to the caliper mounts where the dust shield originally did.

3: Are these something I really need?

Yes, since the emergency brake needs to be activated just about every time the vehicle is parked, to keep the brakes adjusted properly.
