Patents generally expire between 17 to 20 years from date of issue. More likely than not the patent on the original drop I-beam is past the expiration date. The original patent applicant can be located however.

What particular year are you interested, and the application use, since there has probably been different modifications to the patent?

Not sure I understand where you are taking this project, but see if this helps:

Fabricated front axle I-beam

Yes sir, I can:

See the blue ribbon line across the top of the forum page... to the far left is "User CP"... click that.

On the left side column go down till you see "Pictures & Albums"... click that.

Chose the album to open.

Of the pictures in that album, click on the one you want to use as an album cover and open that picture.

At the bottom right of the picture you will see "Edit Picture"... click that.

Under you picture you will see a circle "this is your album cover"... click that.

Now click the button to "Save Changes".

There ya go.
