Looking for some help

Post by markt » April 27th, 2016, 9:29 am

Good morning,
I am working on my TT to AA Express conversion, in the process of assembling the box. Does anybody have the measurements for the measurements for the floor sills... measurement from the front bed panel to the center of sill center floor, sill center floor rear and the sill rear? I have these ready to install but don't want to drill the holes in the wrong location.
Thanks,

Mark

I think you are asking for the location of the 89-A three cross sills. I don't have the measurements - but the cross sills must be placed so that the floor skid strips bolt to the centers of the cross sills. If you have skid strips, then they can be bolted at the front and rear to provide a location of the three cross sills. You can see information and drawings at http://aafords.com/open-bodies/express- ... etails/#cf

Thanks Neil,
I don't have my skid strips yet, I will wait on this step until they arrive.

I have a document (Floor Skid Strips & Retainers 88-A & 89-A.doc) which contains measurements for the bolt holes in the skid strips. That can be used to make a plywood skid strips with the holes for the cross sills to insure their location is correct. If this is something you can use, then email me and I will send you the document.
