Well at a stand still. Need some rear shackles now...so going to order some and change the focus..finish the brake line plumping and setting up the roll control...

Question do I leave the rear brake line disconnected since I haven't run those lines and just put a plug in that port and bleed the fronts?

I'll take some more pics of the progress. Need to use clamps on the ubolts to make sure I don't jack up the threads when installing on the plates for the caltracks and start to measure a couple times to make sure they are the right distance. Someone said something about crites sells leafspring relocation to move them to the inside of the frame for more tire clearance

Still need to chase the treads for the ARP head studs..anything special for installing them. All fluids is out.

Need some help and guidance...the cam retainer plate bolt stripped out... was going to put a Heil coil or just drill a little more and tap it for the next size?

Still don't know on the pushrods yet. Using a 351w turbo roller cam and trick flow 1.6 roller rockers...

So close to having that together and then get the rear-end welded and keep the ball rolling... wedding in September 10th... supposed to be the getaway vehicle

Better get on it!!!  Try to chase the threads on that stripped hole yet to see if its salvageable without drilling or helicoil?  I have an adjustable pushrod if you need it to find the right length down the road.

I saw the pics on FB, what happened? 

 

*Edit* I apologize for not asking if you were ok originally, I assumed since you were able to post this up that you were ok. Was anyone else in the car?
