    To me, the welds look to be on the cold side. They also seem undersized, and they also have quite a bit of inconsistency to them; which, could translate into lack of fusion issues along the length of the weld. In the mock up photo, I see some possible cold lapping along the toe of one of the fillet welds on the right side of the mount.

    I agree with Danny on this one. I'm not trying to offend anyone but the welds do look cold and inconsistent! What welder was used?

    Ya its hard to keep on track when the family is at home. I took them to the shop were one of our certified welders will finish them with the big boy we have there. My 225g plus is in pices getting a new paint job and decals as we speek, I was tacking them and got carryed away wanted to see one done and painted sorry. Thanks for speeking up, If I hand not known any better and stuck them on the truck with the trailer and the 05 jeep and lost them I would have deserved that one.

    Easier/cheaper to use a takeoff set of front brackets from a junk D or W 250-350, drill frame accordingly, and flip shackle. Side benefit it that it looks almost stock because it uses OEM parts. The guys at RamCharger Central don't visit the junkyard too often I guess. My work rig is a '91 W250 so I'm no stranger to this mod.

    As far as the welds, just finish the insides with 7018 and don't worry about it. The stock shackle isn't very strong when it's put in compression and will usually fold up before anything breaks. Stock shackle was designed to be in tension and is usually the weakest link in a shackle flip lift. EDIT: N/M looks like it's "done" judging by paint.

    I know for a fact 91 CTD's use a smaller ID bushing size (and bolt) than 93 springs. I think they made the change in 91.5 or 92 model year. If you decide to try the OEM bracket trick, measure the bolt size. It's not the same for all first gens.

    Ummm,,,, if "Danny" is who I think he is, you should be eating your words, right about now. The man has done more, comparing contrasting and critiquing, among power units, and the same among various brands of wire, than anybody else here.

    Railmen, instead of making fun, why don't you do the same sometime, out of your own pocket?????? Post detailed pics, also, Dan is well known for good, close-up, detailed pics. With explanations.

    Since you already know about the cold welds and are getting them fixed, all I have to say is nice brackets. Im sure they will hold up quite well with the correct welds.

    Im going to make a couple of these for my truck to replace the rotted out ones.

    Thanks guys for the comments. When this prodject is done I'll be starting on my trailer for the welder and compressor.
