Default Re: wrong front cross member

Hello "Stumped",

I too learned about front cross members. I am no expert on these but what I found out is that there are about three types of members-the 1928, the 1929 and early 1930 and then the 1930-31. From what I know about it-the 1928 has the raised front motor mounts where engine bolts direct to these raised mounts. Then you have the 1929 which does not have the raised motor mounts and has the round holes where the radiator bolts to with the raised radiator mounts. Then the 1930/31 with the elongated radiator mounts holes and the lower radiator mounts. From what I understand if you get the wrong cross member you may have problems getting your hood to fit the way it should.

Anyway that is what I have found out about this member. Others on this site can maybe help you more that I can and know more about this than I.
