56 frame footboard mounts

#1

Post by 58bob » Fri Mar 27, 2020 5:36 am

I have a 56 frame with no footboard mounts on the bottom frame rails and I want to add some. Anybody know the distances and angles of said mounts? I have checked out the frame drawing but can't read the dimensions. From the drawing it looks like they are mounted at different angles?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Call wasco frame, and buy his mounts.
He knows all the angles and distances.

I think it is impossible to position the tabs by measuring. Different angles and everything. I installed the footboards and the mounts I was going to use using the front mounts and positioned the rear tabs according to them.
