I replaced that piece with a piece of .5 plate on both sides and added another  .250 to the hitch I built. THe hitch had to undergo several modifications to get it right . Tell me where to send pix and I can send them.   Mike in florida   mCI 7

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Here is a photo of the back of Sojourner's bus frame. He modified the frame but this part is almost the same as OEM. The plate appears to be about 3/32 or 1/8. The diagonal is 1 1/2 square tubing. there is plate on each side of the diagonal.  As a general rule, I try to always use stainless steel if working below the interior bus floor. 
For some reacon, the BB is saying my file is too large, but is smaller than anything I have previously posted??? Jack

David, Heres a pic of mine. It was not rotted out, but I built new longer engine rails and welded on. Half inch thick steel is over kill but it won't rust out. Mine is an 80 5C, not sure if it is stainless but will look if it will help.  Tom Y

OK,
Here's a picture that Jack sent me:

 "Anyhow this is a photo of the rear frame after repair on Sojourner's bus.  The lower and diagonal framing members are 1 1/2" square tubing.  The plates are 1/8" or 3/32" thick.  All material is stainless steel and was welded with a mig welder using stainless wire.  Jack"

hello      here is a picture of the hitch with the plates behind it. The original plates were almost gone and I decided to replace them and add the hitch. THe hitch works because of the green angle welded to the side. That is required for this design more to come  mike

Hello   THis pix shows the hitch removed and the plates that replaced the original stuff. WHere steel met stainless I welded with stainless rod. THis hitch is not the final design because it was modified to add plates to each side. mike
