   This is very true !  My 80 B was damaged in just such a fashion at a
classic car repair & restoration garage that SHOULD have known better.  I
was not happy. 

   My advice is not to use the cross member to jack up the car.  A better
idea might be to jack each side under the "A" arms of the front suspension.
