Re: Fc 170 frame straightening
i would say it would be ok, but it wont "spring back" just push it out to the right size with the new cross member. i wouldn't worry about metal fatigue either, as it was moved in and sat, now you move it out, and it sits.
So the previous owner welded a crossmember right at the rear of the frame but they didn't make it quite long enough so it pulled one side of the frame about 1/2 an inch which doesn't sound like a whole lot but it's very noticeable! My question is how "springy" is the frame after so many years of being held in that position? If I cut the bad cross member out and replace it with the correct size do you fc experts suppose it will be ok?
