Title: Cross Member
Post by: Ma Deuce on December 24, 2019, 03:16:12 PM
Got my new cross member installed after consolation with Steve V. Someone had torched old one off to pull tranny I presume. Looked like it was 1/2 in too long but after measuring top and bottom of frame, bottom was tweaked in a 1/2 in. Picture show’s how I spread it.worked pretty slick. Guess there’s a reason why they had one to stiffen frame.

Nice job. A little ingenuity goes a long way!

Nice jack work. That does seem like the weak part of the frame without that crossmember in place.
