Trying to drop motor on new frame issue.

Hello,
I am trying to put my motor back on the newer frame I have. My motor came out of a 72 88. The frame is a used one in good shape. It is from a 2a. I am having an issue with where the clutch slave is. It hits the crossmember below the motor and will not fall into place.
Does a 2a have a different crossmember? Any tips would be appreciated.

I don't know anything about series trucks but could it be a rhd vs lhd issue? was the same motor in the donor frame?
was frame modified?
do you have the old frame to compare?

I do not know if it was a rhd. The 72 is a lhd. I cut up the old frame and scrapped it. It appeard to be identical beforehand.

SIII trams won't fit a IIa frame without cutting away some of the gusset on the engine crossmember. SIII had a different style gusset to clear the slave cylinder.

So should I cut it away ? Is it going to effect the strength of the frame much?

Cut, yes
Effect strength, no

If you are worried, why not mount the IIA belhousing on the Series III transmission and use the IIA clutch release?

I guess I could, but I don't have those parts. It was just a frame with differentials.
