Re: WTB, Rear 88A platform bed crossmember

FYI i hve heard of people stripping the pockets off them and taking them to a sheetmetal fab place and having one made from this as a pattern. Then re-riveting the pockets back on the new one.

yea finding a good one is gonna be a needle in a haystack.

Re: Early (2 piece) brake cross shafts won't come out

well the 1 piece shafts after this style had to have been riveted on after its inserted into the frame. No other way to get the horseshoe out without removing both arms.

Id guess you have to remove the arm rivet and slide the shaft out towards the driveshaft on both sides.

Re: dual high paint color?

my guess would be black as well. Werent they made by Detroid Gear and Machine co? cant imagine ford sending them paint to paint them green when any old black will do.
