Watt... Is the Correct length of the Watts Linkage Arms?
You mean I'm supposed to measure them FIRST ? Opps...
Not only did I have a bugger of a time with the Watts linkage, this is
the second time I've had to construct this page. I wiped it out doing
some other testing of my site.

Back at the build....

I assembled the Watts linkage like a pro. When I went to adjust the
arm lengths I realized I should have done it first. Before it was all
bolted to the car. I tried to measure and adjust with the arms on the
car. No matter how much I tried to convince myself this was correct.
I knew it wasn't. In this process I realized the arms hadn't been
level when I torqued them the first time. So after taking everything
apart, going to the hardware to replace the Nylock nuts with new
ones. I started all over again SLOWLY... The third time was a charm.
Everything is the correct length, level when tightened and I'm now
the best Watts Linkage assembler for yards around.
I quit taking photos of bad Watts linkage assembly. So you have
these and then magically it's all done. It's my own fault. On to the
next bit...
