Thanks bob. OI and soltz.😎
No progress today. My back is only good for about every other day on this floor stuff.
I also have a couple of more sticks of the heavy 1x2 coming in Monday.

Made up the trans mount today.
The cross piece is removable.
Clean up and better welding once I pull the Engine / trans out to work on the frame this fall.
Keep on keeping on.....

Looks better than the stock cross member.


Just curious, would the stock S10 cross not do the job?

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Speaking from experience, I'm sure the S10 crossmember would need to be moved back a whole ton. If he had it, they're pretty awkwardly shaped too. Sometimes they work, sometimes it's easier to make a new one.

Now that I think about it, I had to rearrange the stock cross member just to get a 305/200R4 in my chassis for the 39.

I had the stock crossmember Skip. As snopro stated it would have been more work to move that one back as well as modify it to fit in a different part of the frame.
This one is simple and strong.( Iím still simple just not so strong any more.)

Front floor cross member/ body mount welded in.
I put these on a stand as the S 10 frame is boxed from the B pillar forward.
With the stands I can sneak a nut in their and it levels the floor too.
Side rails are in.
Next is some braces from the side rails down to the door sill.
Then a couple more 1x2 cross members.
Keep on keeping on.....
