Default Re: 1941 Ford Pickup frame-off restore for the next generation

Reassembly time to rolling chassis.

Front U bolts needed shrank a little. Seems the truck frame had a additional support inside the cross member and the new U bolts I got were a tad long, so cut down 1/2" and rethreaded 3/4" more and redrilled cotter pin hole. Left is new, middle is shortened and right is original.

Front end done, shocks and springs bolted in.

Engine cleaning begins, used a friendly cleaner, spray bottle, and lots of elbow grease. New mounts installed and back in the frame.

Trans pulled/checked/cleaned. Its all there, wanted to make sure nothing broke/missing in there is all.
