Base and Carriage Reassembly

Post by JPG »

This thread is intended to illustrate the reassembly of a MarkV Base and Carriage.

Notice the use of 'horses' to raise and support the 'work underway'. This allows rotating the entire frame so as to better 'get at' those things normally difficult because they are 'underneath'. Keep this in mind when viewing the pix. Many are viewpoints you are not accustomed to seeing! The legs are intentionally left until nearly last for this reason.
