Default thanks

l THANK EVERYONE who's helping me, from trying to find parts to the
support ya all are givin' me.

update, got the wiring harness outta storage and started to get all the parts put , that way in places l know where they are when need 'em l don't have to search all over.

motor and tranny are in, have to fab up and put in a new part of the firewall and trans tunnel because the distributor sits 9'' into the cab.
the rear swaybar is mocked up and the new rear shocks look purty
also the welds are what's gonna stay since the front a chevy and the rear is a dodge for the bolt pattern.

Default Good memories

Hey Skull, sorry for your loss but glad to hear your going to finish the project. About 2 1/2 years ago I went on disability from work. I have since been diagnosed with ALS. I had been working on my wife's 66 Mustang for my 15 year old daughter. She has been helping me on cars since she was about 10. We finished the car last summer. Some days it was really hard, but with my daughter's help and lots of friends, we did it. Now she has awesome car that will be in the family long after I'm gone. You can't beat great memories. Good luck with your truck. I'm sending a few photos of her car....Mick

Lightbulb today, stuff

nice lookin 'stang. l know about the disabilty thing, having terrable artritis
and blown back discs..

the sway bar l'm using is out of a 1977 camaro. so, l got the rear sway bar hooked up. had to fab every thing to make it work, including putting in a another rear cross member to bolt stuff to. cut a hockey puck in half. drilled a hole in each one and used them for bushings. the cross member square tubing is off a stairmaster, thick tubing on that machine so it will be plenty srong for the truck.

Holy crap dude! I can only imagine how you feel. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I think itís great that youíve got the truck out and working on it again.

Hope the build goes well, looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Are there any more parts you still need?

Lightbulb motor

put in motor mounts from a 1972 chevelle today, that dropped the motor almost 2'' and moved it back a 1 1/2 inches, she's got a least a 10%
engine set back. with it set back that far l hope will make it handle ok.

when the engine was built we used a 1966 chevelle oil pan, since l had a dozen or so left over from my racing day's, and in the nova that put the clearence between the sub-frame crossmember and oil pan at 1'', its close but it works. there's lots of room for headers and all kinds of working room to get to the starter, oil filter and trans. exhaust wiil be easy, the pipes can go almost in a straight line out the back, dumping down just about 2'' past the rear bumper.
