Very well. The only shortcoming is, it is slow. It does allow one person to do it and it will be great for putting it back on the frame and getting the body shims placed.

I hung it on the all thread, pulled the chassis out from under it, raised it up with the jacks and spun the nuts on the allthread with my fingers to make it go much faster.

It will Pugsy but with the gear drive it would wheather or not it was balanced. It is still a little bottom heavy but I have it as high as it will go. I think I installed the T-brackets upside down. I should have assembled the T-brackets 180 degrees for the balance bar. It would have gone up another notch. If I would shim it up a couple of inches, it probably would be perfect. On a scale of 1-10 it is a 9. Not perfect but not worth changing either.

I am thinking that may be necessary too. I will be looking at it very carefully

The origional factory installation had these verticle ribs on the firewall.......



Then it had these lower pieces that "triangulated" it.......




I made my pieces wider in order to help prevent flex and welded them on all sides of the mounting plate to further help.............As I said, I will be watching it very carefully.

Eastwood Welding Flow Meter


No question that I like you all so much but not exactly sure why!

I bought a glass flow meter from Ebay for 10 bucks w/free shipping. It is a meter only and not a regulator. It was just a way of checking my regulators on both my MIG and TIG. How's that for "frugal".

I "triangulated" the front body mounts today. Should have her rotating tomorrow.

Ready to get her mounted.
