We are trying to get this fabricated and need some changes discussed at your level.
Attaching the cable plate to the base plate:
What is the weld symbol at the bottom right of this sketch referring to?
Can I remove the weld symbol? I think it is redundant from the one below on the 1/8" / 3/8" on the bottom right. (See Figure 2.jpg)
Lever Retaining Cable 3/8" is shown in the report: should this be smaller/ more flexible?
I seem to recall this being a fairly limp cable, 3/8" would be stiff.
Smaller would hold the lever to keep it from flying into traffic, and breakaway if snagged on the impacting vehicle.
Unsure of size of cable (See Figure 3.jpg) " found in Pooled Fund Progress 2005 V3.ppt
3/8" was used on the short radius system (See Figure 4.jpg)
The ¾" hole used in the small gusset plates out front is too large to place at the location shown & still allow a weld on the bottom side, the metal gets too thin.
The bolt used to retain the lever we don't see dimensioned: can I change this to a ½" bolt and use a 5/8" hole?
If so I would raise it 1/8" and move 1/8" right- this will allow enouph metal to weld too.
