Upper Coupler & King Pin Inspections

The old pick up plate is dropped and inspected. There is a crack on a previous weld and a new pick up plate was required.

Fabrication begins on the new plate. The material is measured and cut to size.

The plate begins to take shape after the ends are bent into position and the king pin is set in place.

The structural supports and cross members are tacked into place before final welding.

Here the pick up plate is welded, drilled, painted and ready for installation.
