A while ago I posted a query about the weld on connectors for tubing to make them removable in one of the engine removal threads. For the life of me I couldn’t find anything on the interwebs. But I just happened on them by chance searching for information in Chenowth Fast Attack Vehicles. Apparently, this guy used to work as a welder for Lynn.

I’m interested in these because removing the shock tower cross brace in my Beck would make engine/trans removal a snap.

I didn't know you were looking for these connectors.

I did this on a customer's Vintage Spyder a couple years ago with 0.120" wall tubing.

I got them here:

I built the 2276, fixed the trans that another "professional" "built", changed it to cable shift, installed a dry sump system with cooler/thermostat/AN hoses, and some other fabrication. I didn't rewire it, but maybe someday.

Made it MUCH easier to pull the trans. I did it 3 times before I fixed the trans for good. Builder got 3 strikes...

I didn't know you were looking for these either.  We use them in our fully caged 904GTS when removable door bars are requested.  I use the ones from TMR Products, they have a double index and 2 bolts per clamp, however we also use larger diameter clamps than you'll need for a shock tower crossbar so that may not be the case for smaller ones.

Yeah, I remember that. But when I went searching, I honestly spent an hour with no luck. Same with regular google. Like 8 said, I found these by chance.
