Default Re: A 29 on top of a 30?

The front cross member as mentioned is taller to accomodate the shorter 28-9 radiator. I found it interesting in all my parts hunts and buys that I never was able to find a NOS 29 front cross member. It is my opinion as well as some others that Ford did not stamp out additional 29 front cross members but only 30-31 front cross members and told the dealers to shim the area where the 29 radiator sat with washers or additional rubber pads to raise it up to the necessary height. So all that said to say you could do the raising up for the radiator but I think it would be better to keep the chassis intact and just change over the parts you need to make it work as it was assembled.
