Re: Wooldridge 1940s Bottom-Dump Truck

Now that you mention it.....looking at those chains, it looks like if the doors open any more they may over center then bind... Might be better if they open just a little less so they can't do...

Re: Build an Excavator from Scratch

Re: Axle suggestions?

Re: Axle suggestions?
