“Next you’ll fit the right upper wishbone arm and torsion bar in the same manner as before using the parts supplied with Stage 63.”
This stage will be very similar to the previous one, just on the other side of the car.
Materials: All of these parts are plastic.
The parts supplied in this stage will not be needed until the next stage, so keep them stored somewhere safe for now:
Fitting the Front Right Upper Wishbone Arm and Torsion Bar
Retrieve your Front Frame assembly and all of your parts (with the Type D screws) supplied with the previous stage. Turn the Front Frame upside down and fit the two arms of the Front Right Upper Wishbone Arm into these recesses on the right side of the Front Frame.
Pay attention to which way this Wishbone Arm is installed. The ‘bolt’ details around the large hole should be on the bottom, as shown:
As in the previous issue, fit the two Supports into the recesses of the Front Frame, capturing the pins of the Wishbone Arm in place. Note how the larger Support A is on the right and how both Supports should fit flush into the openings. Secure these Supports into place with two (2) Type D screws.
When installed correctly, the Wishbone Arm should be able to smoothly pivot up and down. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:
Turn your Front Frame assembly right side up. Fit the round pin of the Right Torsion Bar into this hole of the right side of the Front Frame (circled below). Then, rotate the Torsion Bar until the wider end can be fitted over the square peg (arrow below) of the Front Right Lower Wishbone Arm as shown:
We have done all of this before, so it should feel familiar. We will install the Wheel Hubs to these Wishbones in the next stage.
