Bracing a hydraulic louver press

09 April 2018 - 02:45 PM

I have a louver press for punching 3'' louvers. the machine is an older unit and has preformed as required. I have read that minimal flex is key for clean punches. The punches I have seen the machine do are alright...  I am uploading a picture of the press to see where other members might consider the weak points of the frame. what sections should require additional bracing or gussets.


510 Front Sump anti-sway bar

04 February 2018 - 02:36 PM

I've been searching for about a month on where to find a sway bar for a Datsun 510 with a Ka swap. It is a KA24e with front sump and flipped cross member. I just checked at Futofab,  Is there any other manufacturers? Out of all the old threads I've pulled up, it seems no other company makes them any more.. Are there any junkyard swaps available? 

My 510 is low so the trick I've seen where people make a platform for the bar to hang down lower is not an option. I have been driving without a bar for the last 2 years, its a goal of mine to improve the cars suspension before spring, with this being the major piece missing. 

Pictures because............obviously they are needed on Ratsun.


Edit- spaced the Date- I see its past jan 2018 :)
