Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Well my engine mounts finally showed up ...so today was all about getting the engine supported by something besides the cherry picker...
I boxed the frame in the section where the engine mounts are and further forward to the point where the steering box will mount...so I duplicated the same thing on the pass side..I used 1-3/4 dom tube for the main supports...this will later get gusseted and a cross frame brace when I get the steering done...in the 1st pic you can see where i had to bend the support on the driver side to clear the headers...

Also painted the new battery tray and temporarily hung it on to the firewall to check clearances...it's coming back off for new mounting bolts
