Default Beam Endplates etc. in CAD.
Re:: For the Tech Bin?   

I thought I'd share these here too. Free to use on your own risk.
Thickness recommended for the endplates 10mm.
Baywindow endplates.dxf
Bayewindow endplates.pdf
Works for both early and late bays.

Splitbeam to baywindow.dxf
Splitbeam to baywindow.pdf
This one works both in splits and baywindows. In baywindows giving an extra drop in the front without changing the splitbeam suspension much.

Split beam endplates.dxf
Splitbeam endplates.pdf
The shocktower mounts differ some on the endplates. They are moved up but still fit under stock wheelwells.
Caster is increased to -3degree angle to improve the driveablity with a little rake too.

Finally these Horseshoes also in 10mm thick plates:
Horseshoes for baywindow.dxf

Type-1 pre-66 endplates.dxf

Hmm. Seems like the lower tube on my Baywindow endplate drawings is slightly too low. I have to doublecheck that and correct if necessary.

Not that much that it affects anyway negative.

Sorry...

I thought you might have had the Balljoint end plates in there... Not just link pin ones... Looks like I'll have to get off my ass & measure my own then...

Yes, I'm not sure I will be making those either as those need to be made in several pieces welded together...

Default Re: Beam Endplates etc. in CAD.

I was thinking more along the lines of making them like the l/p ones. I would think you could do the same & use l/p shocks for it... Just a thought... I don't kow if it would work, but, it was an idea I had.

Might work. But I will not and am not able to do the research if it is doable. First of all I dont own a balljointbeam to measure from.

Default Re: Beam Endplates etc. in CAD.

That is funny, I'm in the "other boat"... I have 2 B/J beams & NO L/P beam.




I'm sure it won't be hard to figure out what I need to know... Even if no one can answer it for me! But, I'm thinking I can use the same location to mount a L/P shock on plates designed for a B/J beam, on a B/J beam. I guess the main factor is figuring if they both have pretty much the same travel & same shock mount location toward the back of the beam in relation to the tubes.

I was thinking the same but I'm afraid there is a catch.. Otherwise you would think someone else would have made a beam for o----o shocks for a balljoint beam too?

Default Re: Beam Endplates etc. in CAD.

Rob (Hotrodheb) has made at least one... I just don't know how it all works out... I'll measure my beam when I get home & see what I come up with. I'm probably not going to do it... But, I like the idea of having something custom for the Shorty's beam plates...

Sorry, I dont have endplate files for post-68 bugs. Might be possible to make ones that would be as mentioned above.

Have to look into that some day.

They work but need a little tweaking for cutting.
