Crossmember

Post by marklein » Sun Jun 11, 2017 6:18 pm

I am in the process of modifying my frame to put a magnum 360 and a 4500 in my 67 power wagon. I plan on cutting the center out of the bell housing crossmember and adding a piece lower so that I still get the frame support at that area. From measurements that I have made, I will need to make a new crosspiece just below the existing member. Someone out there done this and can give me advice?

There is a factory piece made for that. Basically a piece of channel iron bent to the shape and bolted in. Sorry, no pics here :(

Spanner used to go from standard to auto. You have to cut the Bell H. support.

Thanks for the pic, in all my travels, automatic sweptlines are very rare in 68 and earlier trucks. I have not had one to part out or own, just standards. This one will still be a standard, but of a different type. I would like to buy one in Canada if I can, a lot cheaper that way when it comes to the border and shipping.

He's graciously going to send me the one he has. Not too difficult to make the second one out of angle iron. Thanks all.
