I haven't heard of Naval Jelly in a long time

Plow truck would sure explain that!

One of the guys here did the same sort of thing with an ex plow truck, it worked out well for him.

This was a plow truck. It was parked in a yard most of the time. That's why the frame is so bad.
what are your plans for this truck? aside from the rust, the abuse and shock loads plow trucks get play hell on the frames.

Drive it !!

I know what you are alluding to, But she runs so sweet and the cab is really clean and the clutch feels nice and tight. After 30 years of being in the welding industry, I have seen what plowing can do to a truck. I drove it up onto the roll back when I brought it home. Drove it off too. I think she will be ok as a daily driver in the winter.

To me, the hardest part is going to be replacing the radiator support. That's trash, Where is a good place to get a aftermarket one. Rock auto is some thing like 165.00.

That frame looks like you came from my area. That is how most of that eras frames look around here. The treatments they use on the roads make so you can't have nice things.

I've seen the repair you are attempting done may times. my advice is take a air scaler and hit the frame to get rid of the rust and scale. where ear plugs and muffs as it so loud it will be deafening.
Then take a punch chisel and test the frame all over for weak/thin spots. then patch or replace the entire frame depending on the severity of the damage.

Por15 is good stuff and lasts and lasts. once you have it fixed up slap the por to it.

Where are you at in Pa? I live 5 minutes from PA. 5 hours from the southwest corner, lol, so it might be worth the trip. Are the frames the same?

Try Jeff's Bronco Graveyard, and also try Dennis Carpenter Reproductions and LMC Truck for your core support and other parts you might need along the way, and also check your local salvage yards and eBay as well. Hope this helpful to you.

i wish you the best of luck! i dont know if this is can be done on light dutys, and i cant find any pictures off it being done. when i worked for a Kenworth dealership some guys would support the cab, engine, trans etc on jack stands and remove one frame rail at a time to fab double frame inserts. you might be able to the the same thing and either repair or replace the frame rails. just a long shot crazy idea
