1980 F150 with swiss cheese frame flexes too much . Is it better to box the frame or just plate it over the holes( much easier) or both ??????
When I put my drivers rear tire up on a bank at P2P my clutch wouldn't fully engage - maybe I just need to adjust the clutch???

NEED CARB !!!!

id say box it, thats what i wanted to do when i had my old ford. or you could have it fish plated(not exactly sure what it is but a guy who worked on rigs reccomended me doing that)
another thing you could do is build crossmembers under there.

frame flex is not a bad thing, people think it is though. look at rigs when they take off from a light, the whole cab twists up and over.
