  • dist. support weld.

    I have several support weldments that are bent and twisted. This is the result of many years of mechanics using prybars and sledge hammers to get the dist level so it doesnt drift to one side. Was wondering if anyone has a good way to straighten these out. I have tried but with limited success. Short of replacing them (070-007-357) at about 75.00 a pop I would like to save as many as possible. When you look at them from behind the post that the dist. is mounted on is not plumb with the bracket.

    Re: dist. support weld.

    are you talking about the tubing supports or the channel supports?

    Can't imagine the tubing being out of wack enough to just give it some serious heat and twisting it back into place.

    Channel may be another story, maybe open up the two 5/16 holes on wheel guard and dist weldment adjoining flange to get more play.

    If it is really tweeked you can cut off and reweld that flange.

    Whatever you deside, good luck!

      I used a 20 ton press to straighten mine out. It worked fine.
