I've enjoyed watching your progress-very inspiring! I seem to remember that you had to adjust the steering box. We've finally got our '73 250 Revcon out of the shop and ready to drive-but there is so much play in the steering that it's very uncomfortable for me to drive. Am I remembering correctly? Do you have some advice for us? Thanks again for sharing your journey with your Flatnose Frank.
Hi, My name is Doug. I have a 1972 Revcon like Flatnose Frank. I wanted to know if you would share your info and knowledge about the tire and wheel issue? I live in Washington state, so the fact that the solution to my problem is only 3 hours away is very exciting.
Thank you for your time
I just love that bumper! I'll just throw something out there for you, in case you decide to power it. A simple option would be to use two air shocks with coil springs hooked alongside each for returning to the driving position, (similar to leveling jacks, but no messy hydraulics.) Individual lines would assure even pressure for the shocks to prevent cocking of the assembly and subsequent jamming. The entire thing could be powered by a 12 volt compressor (the little ones we carry in cars, or in my case in the rig for keeping my leveler shocks up to pressure,) and a three way toggle on the dashboard. Two solenoids with three fittings each (fill, standby, and pressure release,) would handle the actuator duties. Just food for thought.
I REALLY, REALLY, like the way Frank is turning out. Now you've caused me to start giving consideration to a name for mine. Hmm ...
