    My drivers side push plate for my MM1 tilts in a little bit. It makes it so the cross bar doesn't completely line up the 4 holes.
    It appears to be sitting flush with the frame and both push plates fit into the head gear and the pins pop all the way in.
    Am I missing something?

    Thanks guys. It was my fault. The bolt holes weren't perfectly lined up, so I when I tightened it down last night it pulled it in. I re-mounted it today and it's fine. Here's a trick that most probably know, but just in case. Install the cross bar so it spreads the mounts to the correct spots and makes the parallel. Thanks again for the replies. :waving:

    This wasn't an easy job at all. I had to modify a 7170 mount into a 7170-2 style mount. Little bit of cutting and welding. Box frames are nice, but it sure makes it a PITA for bolting anything on. :realmad:

    Glad they fit. I'd never try to modify a Chevy mount to fit a Ford or Dodge or the other way around. My generation of Dodge has a couple styles with slight differences. I just copied the pics from Fishers site for the modifications.
