That’s what I figured but the dwgs done in 1965 show 8U11.5 but also adds “purlin” so I’m guessing it’s a “purlin” section rather than a channel … it sure looks like a channel on site …

Looks like a C8x11.5 (8" deep, 11.5 lbs/ft)

Does anyone know the designation "8U11.5" as applied to a channel section?
