Today I got the rear crossmember welded and had the drivetrain mocked up in the frame. Boy , that is a big combo for a 36 frame requires some cutting in the x-member. Had to widen it 4 inches to accommodate the tranny. I had to cut a relief in the column aswell for the engine. Cut out a piece in center of the x-member then cut the flanges where it meets the rails front and rear. That made it possible to push the x-member outwards to the rails and widen it. Cut some small pie chaped pieces to put in the slots that was after the x-member was widend.Don´t like to weld such wide gaps.Will make a sturdy plate for the transmission mount wich will connect the x-members in bottom and compensate for the cutouts made tor the tranny and then there´s some engine mounts to be made and the welds will be grinded.
