So the BTA setup would in fact help protect the servo and linkage right? I like the idea but I don't know about having the 4 link arms running in between the steering linkage, I guess it's been done before and you probably know alot more about it than me but I don't know...just trying to learn a few things before I start tearing up the WK and screwing things up too bad...

The boxing in of the top helps add ridgity but you will be just fine without it if you use decent material.

Hey guys, I'm looking to download a copy of the template, I'm going to pm harley like he said in another thread, but I've got a couple of servers I could put the template on where it would be publicly available for download if anyone can get it to me quicker

Looks good!

Nice to see everyones time isn't wasted, including mine.

I gotta say it is cool to see so many people using it. Hope to see even more!

*edit*
Whats up with your link mount on the servo side?

Not sure what you mean?

I did have a problem with things binding up when turning to the right, but I wanted to get everything put back together to make sure things were gonna fit/work right. I'm not sure what to do with this problem, any suggestions?

Also, does anyone that has used this mount have and pics from the rear of the servo? Was looking at things and the shock mount is really close to the servo...I turned my link mounts on the axle because I'm going to make a 4 link but now it looks like the shocks might interefere with the servo, in fact, I had to move the shocks to the backside of the stock upper mount in order for them to clear...


Edit: Duh, now I know what you meant, I don't know what was going on there, I did have to trim it up a little after I took the servo plate off and on a few time and realized it was rubbing...guess I could've trimmed the plate up instead but that dremel on aluminum screaming was starting to drive me crazy..

If your going to make the tab for the third screw, why not use it. I don't understand?

To make a long story short, the only drill bit I had that was the correct size to make the hole in question broke while I was making the holes for the servo to mount in, which is part of the reason I'm only using three of those four holes - it started to deflect so much on the last hole that it's out of place. I'm going to remake this mount at some point, probably in aluminum, but that's better than it was stock - now if I could just find guts for the front axle!

Well I finally got my WK in the mail today. Thanks to Kevin from TCS.

I will get to making a mount when I get a new servo. Probably a tower pro.

I don't have the stuff to make it 4wd so I am not sure when I will stretch it.

ASAP. Seriously, stretching mine made a huge difference in the truck's ability to crawl reasonably, even in 2wd. Although, I must admit, it crawls much better down hill atm than up hill.

Just scored two complete WK axles for $95 so looks like I will stretch it out this week and get the servo template cut out. I hope whatever fool drew this thing up did a good job .

I think it's funny everyone makes the tab for the outer screw but never uses it:-P
