Default Wheelbarrow hot rod

More on the steering saga. The steering box / steering shaft situation looked like this:



It is clear the steering shaft needed som support. I also want the steering to be tight and smooth to the extent possible so decided to make a bracket with a bushing:



Welded the bracket onto my “cowl”:

Buttoned up the front end!

The front part of the frame needed some welding as I had only tacked the cuts I made to bend the frame. Finished those welds and cleaned the thing up:



Welded the cowl to the frame:



Drilled my pitman arm:



Made an adapter for my steering wheel:



Made the drag link, which was the same process as the tie bar. Put it all together and now I have working steering






I will focus in the rear end next. Alot of work is needed there as I have changed the plans to include a sprung axle

This is looking great. I love your attention to detail here. Just a thought but the part you cut off the front of the wheel barrow would make a great start to the cowl sheet metal. If you’re planning on doing sheet metal for the cowl that is.

Can’t wqit to see more.
