02-06-2011 05:38 AM WARPED

The crossmember warped about a 1/4'' form the top of the large exhaust holes to the ends.

I had to clap and heat at the same time to straighten them out.
They still bend about a 1/16'' but that's alright.

02-04-2011 06:38 PM TRANNY CROSSMEMBER


With the GearVendors overdrive unit, I will be able to have a fully welded crossmember and not need a removable section at the transmission.

I made a clamping/tacking tool from a hose clamp to help get the first tacks on the elbows.

For the rear elbows, I just had to keep everything flat on the bench for tacking up and everything stayed nice and flat.

The front elbows need to be running parallel so they will be square to the tranny crossmember. I clamped them with the hose clamps and clamped the whole works to a large tube to keep everything in line.

I got the crossover welded and polished up.

I then made up a tool to draw lines on the elbows to get a nice straight cut.
