I know of no diagram (except factory engineering) that will give you what you need. You would have to find a MUST II/late PINTO engine/suspension cradle and either adapt it to your rails or take the specs off of it.

Cool

Check the Steetrodder Magazine indexes, a few years back they ran an article about cutting trimming a stock crossmember and installing it in early chevy or ford.

this is just a suggestion,i have made my own mustang 11 front ends. there is a lot of work, planning, measuring, fabricating, etc. for the price you guys can buy them its really not worth it. good luck with your project.

Maybe a good compromise between buying a complete pre-fab or building from scratch would be to go with one of these:

Welder series in Canada sells laser precut fold and weld kits. The last time I checked My son was planning to do one for his 36 ply and the price was only about $ 125 Us for time and materials it is a bargin. they sell a lot of other rod stuff.
