Re: HOW TO: Crossmember sectioning ...

I was considering this same thing for my build, since I am in the "Too poor for Porterbuilt" parts club as well. Very nice to have this how-to guide, thanks a ton for the time you took, and are still taking, for the write-up.

Re: HOW TO: Crossmember sectioning ...

John, excellent write up. I used the same motor mount perches on my '63 frame. I just cut them down to fit the frame rail.

Nice work, very thorough.

I know how aggravating it is to take pics while in progress on a project too, so thanks for sharing.

Re: HOW TO: Crossmember sectioning ...

Chief, after you section the crossmember do you go ahead and add 2.5" drop spindles ? or is this not possible after sectioning due to steering clearances....???? Kieth

You can. As for steering issues, the clearance problems are due to the crossmember being raised.

A dropped spindle typically is cast with the spindle relocated, but the steering arm is in the 'stock' location.
