cab mounted to new chassis

ford v8s and international vs chevy and chevy V8 there is about 6" difference in the wrong way.  had to cut into the international fire wall.  hacked and patched and done, will deal with it more when doing the interior.  i knew anyway i did it i would not like so it just got done.

looks good as a rolling.  hoping the fuel tank and canister play nice when its time to mount the bed, but steering brakes wiring first so it can turn itself around in the shop bay. 

most parts in hand minus exhaust and glass.

after 2 hours of chasing wires and book reading with no start

MikeMike stopped over to use the lathe and some how stumbled upon Ford uses the same exact connector for the ignition switch as they do for one of the smart distribution box plugs and i had them reversed.  what a terrible POS ford is. 


back running! bah!

fires from inside cab with a key.  that took a lot of work.  under hood harness trimmed down.  A little more work under dash as required keeping the cluster and parts of the old ignition switch, two power modules.  bah!

the one in my appartment is WAY over sized, i wish i had the effort to carry it over.  probably be much better in the larger space.  the newer unit that i stuck in i bought for the trailer and is smaller.   Has a remote control which id love at home.


left it cranking tonight, see how it is tomorrow.  i expect to take a half day.  need to run out to Palmyra to grab a new 4l60 pump

I need to stop and get some pictures of this one. My Grandpa seemed mildly interested in it before you ever started working on it.

hope to start working on finishing up the electrical and get the bed mounted this weekend.  shouldnt be long for a test drive since its already plated and insured.
