DAMN, thats not good at all...




Damn,i have a problem whit my chasis, one of the edges of the from bridge (i call bridge the part that holds the engine bases and the TTB edge), well, on my front bridge, the left side of this, is just lose, i mean, its broken, tha only thing that holds that in its position is just one bolt, and ITS NOT THIGHTNEN, (hope you guys get what im trying to say, lol), well, i went to a place where they weld chasis and he told me that he can weld it but he cant tight the bolt because he cant get to the other side of it to hold it, so, have anyone else have this problem? how can i fix it? weld it or what? hope you get what i tried to say and hope u can give a lot of help whit this, im worried about it...

Re: DAMN, thats not good at all...

I'm surprised you have bolts holding it together. Most have rivits. I don't understand why you can't get a wrench on it. The whole front crossmember is stamped steel so you should be able to access it. Is it just the motor mounts or the whole crossmember?

Re: DAMN, thats not good at all...

reweld it. The only way you're going to access that bolt is to take the whole crossmember off. I'd just reweld it, gusset it some more, and forget about it.
