1977 frame

HI Gang......I need some help here.... again. Just bought a rolling '77 F-150 2wd frame way up here in Ontario Canada. Which was originally from Georgia. The problem I have is the front cross member (where the engine sits) is pushed up on the right side, like the PO had ran into a large rock, tree stump or some other immovable object. I want to find out if the frame is been bent or racked. Is there a point. on the frame, that I can start my measurements from? I only paid $150 CDN for this so I don't believe I lost. I want to replace the frame on MY 77 cause the left side front rad saddle support was bent al the way around to the tire. I can cut the good part off the Georgia frame and mig it to MY frame, or heat and bend the engine support cross member back into place on the Georgia one. Any help is appreciated.

Maybe check with flowney, he just rebuilt a wrecked frame and I'm sure he took a lot of measurements.
