Default Rotisserie Question

I have a rotisserie that i built from plans on the web. I need to replace front cab mounts and floor sections. Where does one attach the rotisserie to the 'tub' and not bend anything? Rear seems easy. Front looks tricky..

Should mention I'm working on 76 Scout II..

Not knowing what roto you're talking about, I used the body mount holes at the rear and fabbed brackets for the front. I used 2 x 2 box tube and 2 x 2 angle. I drilled holes in the angle that lined up with the inner fender well inside flange, 2 holes on each side. I had the tub resting on benches so it was level both ways, front to back and side to side. I then bolted the angle to the inner fender flange. I tack welded it just because! Next, I positioned the roto "arms", which were short of meeting the bottom of the angle, and welded the box tube to the bottom of the angle and top of the roto arms. The MOST important step is plumbing up both ends of the roto. If they're NOT plumb, it will NOT rotate smoothly. It will be in a constant bind. I can turn mine 360* with one hand. I'll try to post a picture later. Another important factor is having the weight as close to the rotation point as possible.

Thank you sir. I was unsure if the flange in front was tough enough to use as a mounting point. Your reply helps me a lot.

Hopefully, here are some pictures. They are taken with the tub turned 90*. I didn't have room to lay it flat last night. I did tack weld the inner fender flange to the firewall is several places. I figure those welds may be ground down if necessary without being seen when assembled.

You're very welcome! I'm glad I could shed some light on the subject for you. I can't stress enough how important having the tub level both ways and the ends of the roto plumb are. It makes all the difference in the world. Ask me how I know!?!?!?! Take your time and you'll be fine!

No updates yet. Work and holidays got all in the way. Hope to have her rotisserized next week. Then the fun can begin!! In the meantime, here's a gratuitous home made rotisserie pic since we all like pictures.
