At least, the clearance between the inside fender wall and the tire is no longer an issue. I have lots of room to spare now.
rooster wrote:Cracker and all, I would like to use a torsion style axle on my next build. Cracker is using Dexter brand, and what I can see it does not adjust up or down. Steve in his c/d shows a torsion axle that is and runs across to the other side and is adjustable, what brand it is I don't know. Why is one brand better than another? What is the best place to get one or the other?

You may want to consider using the brake flange to mount your fender. I've seen pictures here somewhere of a builder who did it that way. You can get a nice close fender to tire clearance that way since the fender moves up and down with the suspension. No need to fuss with inserts/bolts through the body either.
Just a thought,
