The engine looks easy to work on with that long hood. The frame rails look split at the top flange.

are you talking about pic 3 in the body set? that looks to me like the body to frame shim plate. 

when you are up to your armpits in alligators,

it is hard to remember you only came in to drain the swamp..

You're right about the shim plate, but in one of the suspension pics it looks like the frame has been plated and there are dimples around the rivets like rust spreading.

In photo 7 of that set there is a straight line for a splice where the top of the trunion on the right side bolts on. I'd be real leery of the condition of the rails.
