I tried to mount the steering damper.

One side on the steering lever and the other side ...
The attachment to the front axle (1959) is missing.

Can someone give me the dimensions for the sheet and the thickness of the metal?

Where is the bracket for the steering damper attached to the front axle?
I also need the dimensions here. Thank you for your help.

The other end should mount to a bracket on the left frame rail.
Found this with a quick search:

Are there different versions of the front axle beam?
