Well, it leaks somewhere...it was flat when I got home that night. We'll figure it out.

Busy day. I set the stock ride height on jack stands, leveled the frame to my floor with shims, attempted to locate the centerline of the rear axle (this will be the 1st of many attempts), set the axle in place, and set an old driveshaft in place for reference. This phase will be more about measuring, and MUCH less about cutting and grinding...

It takes what it takes to get it right, don't get impatient. Did you find the leak?

I think it's the cheap valve and gauge. They were $3 each, so I got what I paid for. Thanks for the encouragement!

Still trying to locate the centerline of the rear axle. I did better today, but it was frustrating to say the least with this heat wave. Mine happens to line up perfectly with the center of a rivet.
But on the other side the river is 1/8" off. Such is my life. I think I'll measure from the back, square up both sides within 1/16" and call it a centerline. The manual says 3/16" deflection from side to side is within tolerance for a "square" frame.
Cheers...
