Freightliner, Finally Got it to Sit Level....Page 3

Got it to sit level, finally....All I can say is, YAAAAAYYY!!!!! I figured it out....After taking a flashlight to it, underneath, I found the shift tower was back too far.....I worked to get it to fit for a while, but I finally did away with it, all together.....That worked, quite well ....I figure it will never go to contest, anyway, and it was bugging me every time I walked into the garage: so I figured this was my best option....I can live without the shift tower, but it's not setting right was driving me NUTS....THIS I can live with....

That looks awesome with the Wilson Trailer. I sure would hate to drop the coin to fill those fuel tanks.
I did not attach the shift tower on mine till the last step. After the cab was mounted I taped the assembly to the bottom of the floor , lowered the cab . Grabbed a small paintbrush with a small amount of liquid cement and attached it to the frame mount. Perfect lineup and fit. Used a pair of tweezers to remove the helper tape and all was good.

I know the next one, I will have to try that....I couldn't believe how far off I had mounted it....Almost a 1/4 inch....

IF they don't sit level it drives me crazy until I fix it or replace what is causing the problem. Glad you fixed it JT...

Looks good! Good old AMT kits, the cab never fits right on these. I made one into a day cab and found it to actually sit level. Still a good kit and great looking truck when completed.

Great looking build JT. Glad you were able to solve the cab issue.
