This video is about the suspension and how parts of it work. He is rebuilding this tank and some of the other videos are pretty good. To me this one gave an excellent explanation of the shock absorber and the torsion bars.

Enjoy,

Yes, the Toyota did pull the tank, I am sure I saw that...

They talk about the steering mechanism and how it works in this one.

Those parts are a lot easier to handle in 1/35th-scale ....

Amazingly enough they use the Takom T69 kit as a reference also.

Jump to 17:45 to see it, something along the floor board.
