Yo estetic looks hella clean man! I haven't been on here in a long time l, finally checking out and catching up with ppls builds. Anyways looks good as far as the hood to carb clearance I had to get rid of my 1" spacer. I'm running both old and newer style hoods.

Thanks man - got the rest of the front end bolted on, and have the hood sat on there with the spacer and it looks like it may clear (seems to clear the cleaner stud but haven't thrown an air cleaner on it yet.

#racetruck... not a fan of the pins but you gotta do what ya gotta do when somebody puts a big ol' radiator where the hood latch lived.

Just waiting on a buddy to get his trailer sorted and handle the last few items to get this thing on the road.

She runs, she drives, she's LOUD haha - need to get the exhaust sorted and start cruising this thing.

I chopped my driveshaft down over the weekend, cutting it back before it tapers and welding in the new yoke made it just about perfect. Got a new trans yoke from a buddy that was in his syclone, so a part of my truck has been 10's in the quarter haha, so no conversion joint was needed... No more vibration then its ever had so success there.

Video to come

Little bit of insight into what this swap ran me -



Got lucky with the engine and trans, paid core prices for what is turning out to be a good running engine set (fingers still crossed but it feels great and is working even better). Items in gray are tools so they technically shouldn't go against the final price but they are there.

This is a 'budget swap', nothing fancy. Junkyard fan setup (which is a beast, Volvo dual speed electric fan, Volvo relay/controller, BMW temp switch), eBay alt/starter/pulleys, cheap shiny tins, running the stock fuel system with mallory return regulator, motor came pan to carb with a distributor and wires

Can anyone confirm the gas gauge signal color and output? I picked up a super cheap gauge on amazon but can't get it to read anything - think its the yellow/green wire at the dash plug?

Done.

Got it over to my buddies shop and we took a full 2.25" exhaust and magna flow mufflers that once lived on a 1970 nova and put together a dual setup dumping just after the cab. Not a lot of other options due to 4-link/bag and gas tank locations. The block huggers worked just fine.





V8 swap is wrapped haha... truck is back on the street - but had a belt let go in one of the rear tires (coincidently the one that spins when you do a burn out with a open h190) and have a big ol lump in the sidewall, so pathies are going back on for a bit.
