8/21 G - End crossbar fit between top bar and newly bent bottom archbar           Return to MSR&LHA Home page

At first glance, it looks as if the truck is too wide for some reason, but if one looks closely it can be seen that our top bar is resting against a lip on the tie bar formed by many years of constant jiggling against the previous (original?) side frame components. This means that the tiebar is a smidge short, but it worked. The ends of both tiebars on this truck will be welded up and ground down to correct such fits.
