It is 1 X 2 tubing. I believe it was 80 thousand thick stuff.

As for the transmission ... I have a transmission jack ... and have pulled the 400 Turbo from my 32 roadster a few times ... playing with different stall converters. EASIER than pulling the engine ... for me. The hood and the radiator has to come off ... and the front fenders ... and aligning all that without putting a scratch on it is difficult ... if not almost impossible.
