Sorry the links didn't quite work out for you, I just pulled them from another thread.

Also.... we have the option to conduct a search at the top of the page. This has proved to be quite helpful in my never ending quest for more information.

Hopefully the pic above will help, thanks ohiodan!

Re: frame dimensions

I would love to see these in high res too, but I can't get anything through that site. If I can get copies of these, I'll post them where they can be downloaded by others.

Any luck with the high resolution images for a 1972 short step frame?

I would really appreciate copies if anyone has them.

Thanks All.

Re: frame dimensions

Well, I believe the ones referenced originally came from the "67-72 Factory Assembly Manual". Do they have one of those available for the later years?
