    Thanks. I found that. I was confused with that at first. I wasnt reading it right.I get it now. example you measure line A in that direction then the other way.
    Points C&D should be the pints to use.

    you can use just about any factory holes or marks on the frames to produce multiple diagonal measurements. Bolts through the alignment holes will get you close but these extra diagonal measurements will get you spot on.

    In terms of adjusting with the motor in. I suspect if you used bolts in the alignment holes then you won't need to move the s/f much, if at all. That would mean loosening the s/f bolts just enough so you could take a come-a-long or a BFH and do some minor adjustment.

    Thanks Aaron. I didn't have to much time to work on it today.But after measuring a couple of areas of the sub frame it was off like 1/8th". The problem is with the nose cone one side is good. I think its the core support is off.

    Yeah, 1/8" isn't going to cause the type issues you are seeing. I would stick with the plan you have now to get things straight.

    I did this with just the flux no gas.I would recommended using gas if you can. It was the first time at wielding. I took my time and worked my way all around at different spots. That was a long time ago I did those floors. Cant wait to get back at it.Its been a tough winter around here!!!
