What is the payload capacity for a front i beam axle

I was kicking around using a cummins 6bt in my project on the boards, but I want to run a I beam style front end like one of the ones speedway sells. How would one of these do with a 1000lb motor resting on it?

It might ... but I would be leery. If you want a I beam ... find a Henry Ford one. They are forged ...

They installed them under 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton pickups.

That Cummins is HEAVY

the tube axles are listed with a 2,500 lbs weight limit for the entire car as per Speedways listing.. that's pretty much a T bucket with a full interior, tall windshield and a 350/350 engine/ trans combo

I would go with an original, or a good aftermarket I beam..
