Se6b outrigger question

Post by Jase675 » Thu Sep 24, 2020 11:39 pm

I have a galv 6b chassis and am wondering about the nearside front outrigger. The jacking point is set in slightly (about 40mm) which means the very front outboard corner isn't welded up vertically ie where the sill meets the outrigger. This seems to be because the body attachment bolt in that location is too far outwards and would have been covered by the jacking point if the jacking point was located in its normal place ie at the very outmost point of the outrigger. It all looks 'factory' but a bit odd. Anyone seen this before??

Hi everyone.
I found the thread Jacking Point from 2016 which suggests others have the same issue and was probably a factory thing but does anyone know why it was done this way? I'm tempted to alter it as others have. Thanks

Just don`t jack the car on the outrigger.
Use either the front of the chassis where the towing loop is, or under the main chassis rail.

I would ONLY use the outrigger to jack a car IF i was stuck at the roadside and it was my only option.

In any case I would never use the Factory Jack with it`s locating Pin only in an emergency, otherwise a flat plate or short plank when using a 3t trolley jack in the garage. :w
