Fred I notice on the axle, that looks like 22.5 degree up. That's what I order for mine. I ended up putting a 1.5 inch by 3/16 tube between it and the frame because it was to low. Do you have that same thing? Also, I would be interested to know how much room you have between the floor pan and the axle itself. After installing this one, it is very close. Darcey and I sat the body on the frame for the last time last night. Bolt it back down and that part is done.
Vic.

Hey Vic, couldn't tell ya on the angle, I ordered Paul's Fibreglass RV Parts, Repairs, and Service by Paul Neumeister
direct replacement axle.
I just finished the install last night. No the height is perfect.
maybe a bit higher than before but now has bounce.
As for floor clearence I had to get out the big Ford hammer
and modify the left side a bit to line up the mount holes.
The angle iron frame for the floor wasn't quite right.
Very happy with the axle cept it has fancy new bearing greaser
setup that my center caps wont go over. I hope stock dust caps will
fit cause I"m running my center caps one way or the other.
Pics to follow
Fred

I took a closed look at the axle of yours and I think my angle looks a little steeper than what you have. Measure from the frame to the floor and let me know.

Hey Vic, I never crawled under to measure the frame to axle distance but the angle of the tired stock axle is about 15degrees up so I think the new is less than that because the boler sits abit higher with the new axle.

a few pics to update activity.
Except for some angle iron interference that a big hammer fixed Paul's Fibreglass RV Parts, Repairs, and Service by Paul Neumeister axle was a drop in! Sure want to run my center caps!!
I'm in the process of moving the propane tank forward about 4 inches. I'm also offseting it a bit to make room for the jack handle. This will give me enough room for the spare tire between the tank and the cabin. The hold up is I lent out my welder,,,,. More pics to follow.

Fred that's looks good. Is that a 13 inch wheel? If it is I think mine's lower. I can't see that much wheel on mine. Level it off and measure from the hitch to the floor. Also on the wheel opening, did you make that little flare? I was thinking something like that. I think because of how low it sits, I'm going to open the wheel opening up. I was thinking in a tear drop style. What do you think? I need a little more opening for a wider wheel and tire.
Vic.

Hey Vic, the wheels are 14x6 and the tires are 185-60s.
From the bottom to the top of the ball mount is 12 to 14 inches.
I built the flares using double sided tape and cardboard to get the volume
and shape and added the glass.
I was after an opening that resembled the Comets openings.
Whatever you decide to do will look good but start on the curb side opening because the door can limit your decisions. Repeating on the road side is easier because the well is more open.
You will find you can get an 8 inch wide wheel in the well if it has a big negative offset. I prefer the 6s because you can have a better looking
positive offset and a good range of smaller diameter tires to select from.
How about some update pics on your progress. Did you book Libby's 2bit rv pk? it's only3-4 weeks and I got a ton to do yet!
Later

Yes its booked. Ed and Susan will be there and Kurtis was saying last night they are going to try to come. There are a number of units from the hood coming, should have good turn out. As far as the Boler, I just have to under coat the bottom and that will be it for now. My plan is to find a spot for the car for the winter, and put the Boler back in the garage. Remember, Libby, 2 weeks from Friday!! The rubber gods will be happy.
Vic.

You have inspired me! There will be a plywood top that hinges the top and front to swing up to let the toilet come out to be emptied out.

Hey Chris, happy to be an inspiration! Although I missed that when I put in my portapot. It is a little bit of a pain to remove but don't use it much so it is what it is.
Fred

Finished the spare tire mount tonight. Moved the propane tank forward about 4 in. left about 2in. and up about an inch. This gave me room for the spare and clearence to rotate the jack handle without busting my knuckles.
