To avoid the wobble factor, eliminating the king pin spring & making plates for that & the crossover steering arm (more pics to come for that part).
I would like to understand more about the spring removal mod ( i have the 44 myself so not applicable ) did you find this on the net somewhere?

Love the dirty face picture too thats a classic!
