1937 frame blueprints

#1

Post by montuckymatt »

Yesterday while doing winter maintenance on my 37 I noticed my top motor mount was completely sheared off. It cracked on both sides just before it meets the top tube. Anyone have blueprints for the correct location of this bracket? I have a repop frame and the rear tank mounts dont align with the 37 tanks i plan on using someday (im running a chopper tank right now so it doesnt matter). If im going to redo it, id like it to be in the right place! Thanks!

You can get the motor mount here - https://www.wascoframe.com/store/knuckl ... rame-parts
Bolt one original tank on frame to locate mount and tack weld.
Remove tank and weld bracket.

The factory built frames using precision jigs so everything fits, reproduction frames are not as good as original frames.

A lot of these parts come from the same horse.
Installation is the same using an original gas tank to get it positioned properly.....
Have your friendly local indi dealer check on this for you.....

Call me stupid, but as displayed that will not work.
I can say with conviction that Wasco frame parts are the best, the best.

I guess i do not see how it will work very good since it is already welded at the bottom, what do you do beat it on?

I don't see a problem. Steel is flexible, and should slip into place with just a little effort. But if that is too complicated then look elsewhere....
