Frame straightening 101


So after some extensive and calculated measuring I concluded that my rear frame rails were bent. Initially I thought it was only the right side but the left side was down.75 and the right was 2 low When Measured at the rear body mount hole. The rails were bent in the curve above the rear axle. I took a couple pics to show my straightening process. A little redneck but whatever works.

 This is a 67 frame that I got from Roger in Saskatchewan a few years ago. It was just sitting in the yard at the shop. I was cleaning the yard so I pushed it in to save it. I took a pic of to date code and it has PON stamped above it.

 Lol. Not on the bucket list. Ya never know when you just might need one. Actually trying to clean up and get things in order at the shop because I plan to put it on the market. Still lots of people moving here from Ontario someone must need a shop.
