The body is off and on the rotisserie. Worked out pretty well. Thought I'd share some photos with you guys.

First is the brackets bolted in the door frame. Second is ready for liftoff.

3. Cab off frame.
4. Setting up rotisserie parts.
5. Lowering on to rotisserie - a bit front heavy (pivots located at geometric center, not the center of gravity)
6. Another view

That should do the job. Most I have seen locate on the firewall and back of the cab to rotate the other axis. If you don’t have to rework the hinge areas for rust it will be great. Great work. Now get after it. chug

Thanks

I wanted to avoid going the other axis because the cowls were so far gone. I thought I'd have a better alignment with the brackets on the door hinges and strikes. Very little repair needed at the lower end of the A pillars, so this should give me good access for repairing that little bit.

I got a lot of great info from these posts. Thanks to all of you guys. I love the rotisserie idea. I have 2 engine stands, although one is in use right now. I will be building either a rotisserie, or at least a mobile platform to move the cab around on. I'm surprised to hear that the flange tool is such a bad idea, but I do see the reasoning behind it. Thanks to all of you guys.

If you are building your own keep in mind that 3" tubing fits inside 3" pipe for your pivot point.

I used a couple of engine stands because a bunch of the work was already done. Easier and possibly cheaper than digging up the parts to fab everything. At least I thought so. The stands I used were $50 each shipped to me in Alaska, which is a smoking deal.
