My tranny is out and so I am taking the opportunity to repair rust damaged sections of my skid plate. More properly, I am putting right the horribly bodged rust repair by the PO. The inverted towers that the mounting bolts go thru collect water on the undersides, since it is cup-shaped. Then the skid plate rusts where the bolts seat. The PO crudely tacked - and BRAZED! - washers to 'fix' it. The tacks did nothing and the braze set up electrolysis, so what was left corroded faster. The bolts have a chamfer and he used a flat washer - dumb.
All six needed attention and the center two are the worst. Just an island of a washer with braze around it floating in a sea of nothingness.
My Jeep is being repaired a 100 miles or so from where I am (the skid plate is here with me) so I would like the measurements to make sure that I have the centers lined up properly for the repair, which is entailing building up the sides of the volcano from good metal from good metal on the skid plate to a solid spacer that will then get chamfered to accept the chamfer on the bolt.
I need to finish this welding tonight or tomorrow, so I could really use those measurements if someone can send them along.
