PostSubject: Removing frame   Mon Nov 14, 2011 3:26 am

hey everyone, well i posted in the old forum but as we know its out of action, at least for now anyway, i just want to know whats the best way of lifting the frame off the chassis? should i jack it up, or should i run some straps around it and lift it with a engine hoist? Any other ideas? Thanks, Joe.

Joe. I am going to brace the inside of my body a little before I try to lift it off the frame. The rust and age have weakened it and I don't want to twist it in any way. I plan to lift my body off with a four point carlift If I did not have a lift I would Jack her up and roll the frame out from under her. I am building a rotisserie so I will mount the body on that.

I use a forklift and trucker's tie down straps to raise the bodies off. Definitely brace the body by using square tubing or c-channel to fit where the doors were. 4 grown men can lift the body off, but to prevent back injury, it is better to use a hydraulic hoist.

The other way is to jack the body up slightly or have a couple guys lift front then back and you place a 4X4 between the body and frame. Once thats done, floor jacks until the rear hump clears the 4x4 then roll the frame out.

i like the sound of that, what about putting the doors back on for strenght, instead of making braces to stop the body from flexing?
