Tim,

I have a Weaver Model G 3 ton capacity wrecker boom mounted on my '26 TT --- what dimensions are you looking for?

I have Donnie Browns old crane. I could use 1) a couple of photos of this area. 2) dimension of angle iron and aprx length along the edge 3) length of this round rod. 4) a couple of photos and overall length of crank handle so I can carve up a foundry pattern. Post here or email tmorsher@icloud.com mucho gracias!

Tim,
You have a 2 ton crane. Should say so on the cast iron data plate. Yours has 2 axles of mechanical advantage and Jack’s 3 Ton is larger and sports 3 axles. Makes a difference in measurements.
