My wooden beams that go along the side (= the ones lying on top of the poles) grip around a really big metal H beam from the main construction so they can't move back and forth. Because the wooden beams in between the side beams push them against the wall of the main construction the whole thing also cannot move side ways.

All this was discussed with a certified engineer who calculated the metal and wood I need. The only thing he did was leave the split in between two poles and I think it's stronger to have it on top of a pole, which is what I'm gonna do now :-)

the very fact that he approved and designed an open unsupported gap between supports is what would bring up questions of if he was truly qualified if it were me. If that is ok to him what else is? Sometimes a second opinion can make a big difference on what you believe.


'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, 750 CFM double pumper, Holley Street Dominator intake.
