M2 rear step brackets info needed
« on: November 21, 2016, 03:51:26 PM »
Hi was wondering if anyone could give me the overall length or the bracket that braces the m2 rear step? I have mine but they were torch cut and I need to rework them.
Thanks

Which ones do you have? For the M1917 tripod or for the M2 tripod?

Sorry not really good at describing  things these bolt to rear frame and then bolt to the bottom of the step to support it
I can figure it out I have both pieces but when they removed the bed they torch cut them so I know I'm missing some material

Are these the parts? Don't mind the hunk of steel on the outside it needs to be removed.

OA length on those is 10 3/8" and OA width 3 3/4". They are made of 1/4" materiel.

I just measured a reproduction (superjeep), 10.625 overall and 9.75 from frame surface to center of step bolt hole.

It is an Autocar but it did go through a B&M rebuild to be converted to an a1. The brackets do look like they may have been trimmed a bit. I should be able to find a pic of them bolted up before I took it apart if that will help.
