Where the pan attaches to the hump, remove the steel there so there is only a slot. Take two steel 10-32 or slightly larger nuts and drill out the threads. Weld these on the inside of the hump on the cross frame right on the endges of each side. Find a nut and bolt long enough to go from one side to the other and install the pan using the long nut and bolt. You may have to file the slot a little to get the pan to operate properly. I used a NOS 1.5 coil spring pan. I used 3 or 4 drilled out nuts to use as spacers so the pan was adjustable for pan tension.

Or you could just save yourself an hour of work and possibly a ruined trap. Look up a Miles trigger. If the pan is too loose. Open up the crimp trim a little off the inside of it then crimp it down a little.
