Are you talking about the length or width?question is this. I found a used rail kit for a chevy . thing is the rail kit came out of a boat that had 22 in rails and I have 23.5 in rails. is that not gonna work or can it me modded to work?
Can you not get some aluminum plate to make new plates, and use the old plates as a template, and just make the mounting tabs a little longer?bulb Do you have a jigsaw and a router? They wouldn't be too difficult to make, especially since you have motor plates already, that you can use as a template.if any of ya hear of a used Rail kit or Hardin,Guardian kit that will work for me let me know. Im trying not to shell out for brand new if poss.
Not everyone has to pay themselves to do work...I just bought a clean 2 x 2 remnant at a local supplier for $40 bucks. You can get a front & rear mount out of that one piece.Are you talking about the length or width?
I am guessing you are talking about the motorplates being an 1-1/2 narrower, you are pretty much out of luck and you will have to make new motor plates. Probably cost $250 to make new wider plates off your old plates.
If you don't care how it looks, you can probably get away with making wider mounting blocks as the plates would still sit on the rails.
Ok, that makes more sense now!i dont have a rail kit I was thinking of buyin the one that was 22 inches but asked here first if I can make it work.
