Default Re: 2001 club cart bent frame

The height is good just one bent in a bit, kinda worried about cracking the aluminum if I try to bend it back. Could open a whole other can of worms, thinking redrill. Also where is a good place to order a front leaf, mine appears fairly sacked out

Aluminum isn't very forgiving on bending,especially when its' bent one way,and you want to bend it the opposite,it tends to just snap.You could try heating it with a rose-bud or large cutting-tip,and have a friend ready with something to pull with.I would plate it after though,just to be safe.

Aluminum doesn't really "Grow",especially past sheet-metal thickness.It bends,but becomes very brittle and begins to fracture,by heating(Annealing)you can stress-relieve it and can form it without failure.The trick is to keep it hot enough to flex,without it starting to form puddles.Keep the heat to it,moving away and back as needed,as you stretch it back.A come-along or porta-power would help alot.Get it back to where it needs to be,back the heat away,and allow it to air-cool,while still supported by whatever means you pull with.Hope this helps.
