Since I was so amazed by how AJ fixed the nutserts, I thought I would highlight that by itself. For anyone who is interested...
The area he is working on is one of the bolt holes for a front shackle hanger. The nutsert broke out and the PO drilled a large hole on top of the frame and bolted the hanger through the frame. He tightened it down so much that it cracked the frame around the hole. The metal is a little thin here so the repair was easy to do. Other areas, like the crossmember for the tranny where the metal was in better shape, it wasn't as easy!
AJ took a nut and bolt of the proper size and placed it over the hole.
He then took a Sharpie and marked each lobe of the nut.
Then with a cold chisel he notched each lobe.
He then took the bolt/nut combo and placed them properly over the notched hole, and with a BFH he knocked it into the hole. Go slow... the edges will take the shape of the nut and it won't spin. Don't hit it too hard and knock it into the frame! Once he set the depth he welded it up. I forgot to get a pic of that, but I will once I grind down the weld. It looked very good. I hope someone finds this useful.
Go Fish! <*////><
