Hi well the final allignment of the body.Is there any written document about how to go about it.or has anyone got any advice as to how to go about it. Many thanks Gerry (NZ)
Nothing special, other than fitting the body to frame blocks. That can be done after the body is on the frame. Lever up at spots, and slip in the blocks. Some are held fast with wood screws, you may see small holes in the subframe for those.
Original blocks to see location. There are blocks too at the rear crossmember. And at the front cowl, a smaller block for fitting wood screw thru the leading edge of the splash shields.
Body on, you can if you wish not fully tighten the body to frame bolts at this point of assembly, but have found if frame is straight and firewall lines up with the dash to frame brackets, then fix the body in place to continue the rest of the assembly.
Is your frame STRAIGHT? Many 26-7 frames are sagged in the motor mount/firewall area!!!
Hi thankyou very much for the help.it just looks like a bit of adjusting to be done .Yes the frame is straight,the two frame to body solid mounts in the front lined up straight away,Its the adjusting of the doors is the problem ,Many thanks Gerry(NZ)
