Mounting the bulkhead on frame issue.

Hello,
I am still working on the 72 88 on a 2a frame. I am installing the bulkhead and I am having an issue with the holes for the mounting bracket off of the steering box. The holes are an inch low and about an inch toward the front. Are these 3 holes different on a series 3 frame? Bulkhead seems about square and in right.

Had no issue installing a IIA bulkhead on a Ser III frame, on two different 109s. I always thought that they are interchangeable. My left wing is off at the moment, I could take some measurements if that can help you.

Hi there,
I just came across your post and recognized the issue that I had at one point.When assembling the bulkhead to frame and steering bracket, I was told not to bolt everything down tightly until you have the bulkhead, doors and steering all in place , so that you can adjust so that the door gaps and and bulkhead can be squared up. Once everything is in place and possibly shimmed ,then you can tighten it down. I made not of the bolts that needed to be tightened , so they don't get forgotten later.

Half an inch of shims is not unusual there. As said, there are some things that can't be adjusted (bulkhead vertically because of the two big bolts at the bottom), but everything else has a lot of adjustability. Bolt it up very loose and add shims as needed including washers to move the bulkhead forward. Was your bulkhead repaired? That could also explain the gap if it is really a full inch off.
