Ken,
The easiest way to do it is to bolt the rails to a spare oil pan to keep them properly aligned. Then weld a piece of 1/4" x 1" flat bar to the top of the rails just ahead of the oil pan. If you want to put a rear bar on, you have to bend it in an arc to go under the blower housing.

FarmallGray is correct on using an oil pan to get it exactly right. Here are the dimensions.....

If you use an 82 series cradle do you have to modify it?
