Checked the street side of the frame. Even though the axle mounting plate is distorted more than the curb side frame there are no cracks. Just to be safe I had a local iron supply shop cut me two 7.5" X 61" pieces of 3/16th flat plate that fit over the axle mounting plate. Got the axle bolt holes lined up and drilled 28 - 7/16ths inch holes at 8 inch intervals along three longitudinal lines. Welder will be here on Wednesday to repair the crack. Still need to know what kind of repair and plate configuration works best.

Lightly loaded heavy rated axles could also contribute to frame cracking, but it would take a long time to show up.

Andy, How do we check for bad rubber rods in the axles? If Henchen recalls their axles will you notify us? Thanks
