Someone likely backed over a big rock. I have 2 that are so bent they need replacing, the others can be straightened. Find a piece of pipe large enough to fit over the mount to use as a pry bar. Put a jack under the inside edge and pry it back down and toward the rear. You shouldn't need any heat.

new running boards, laying under the truck and cutting off all those old rusty bolts wasnt that bad but man was I dirty, trouble is the Boards came from one place and the hardware from another so hopefully the bolts well get here tomarrow, good chance to run it up to the car wash and power wash as much as I could before a layer of under coat
Made the huge mistake of letting 54-3100 set for 6 weeks without starting. xc#xYgtr alcohol in gas. everything is new, tank,lines a perfectly rebuilt model"B" and runs like a sewing machine. Glass fuel bowl has tablespoon of water. This is Florida so all my work starts again, little 54 runs awful. Going to drive 16 miles to a WAWA and get white gas (no alcohol), Only going to use WAWA blue pump gas in everything built before 1972. Dang. Just to make this ol guy happy call your local WAWA and ask for a blue pump. Thats what I did today. Doc
Doc, I have found the humidity here in Florida contributes to the moisture in gas. I'm also a big fan of non-ethanol gas from WA WA. I use it in my small motors also. It doesn't seem to go bad like the corn fuel.
When I die, I hope she doesn't sell everything for what I told her I paid for it!
