Frame Rails

Recommended Posts

I own a 2001 Mack CH613 that had an engine fire and burned the cab, hood, engine and tires off the truck. Insurance company

paid out as a total loss I bought the salvage back as this truck only had 12000 miles on it at the time of the fire. My question

is this. Would anyone be afraid of using the frame rails of this truck for any type of rebuild this truck is a double frame.fire only

burned around engine and then spread to cab nothing from the back of the engine was burned on the frame

You could probably use it as is but that is probably. Any twist, or deformation and it is a no go. If you look to where the paint on the frame has stopped burning, and cut off 12 inches back from there, it would be safe to use. I've done that several times.
