I'd move it to the inside, but rather than using angle iron I'd make a small triangle gusset that went down the rail a few inches.
Get a BBC weld up header kit from a well known rod and race parts supplier.
If it still needed to be tapped out rather than just falling out, it'll be fine with just loctite.
Small tip. I made a set of headers this summer for my project and made a little tool to help mark my cut lines when cutting bends to fit. It's...
I had a 54 when I was in high school (1980s) and that's where I remember it being as well.
I should have never sold that truck.
I have a Miller Digital Elite and I love the lens (X mode especially), but have the same feelings about the headgear as you. I have the knobs...

Yet another reason why I live in the land of long cold winters.
Making an odd shaped piece of transmission tunnel and I had no poster board to make a pattern with...

A 48 International pickup that doesn't really fit the theme of this board.
Put a 302 Ford with a manual 4 speed in a 54 Dodge pickup I had when I was 15.
