Just updating some of the progress and pics, on my now long term project.
The stock two bbl that I used to get the motor up and running has been replace by a TA470. With one pump of the accelerator lever, it fires up and idles very nicely..!


Also the stock exhaust manifolds have been replaced by Thorley's which I have more pics on in this thread I posted earlier. http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showt...light=thorleys

Also fixed a cooling issue due to a bad clutch fan that was purchased brand new out of the box.
Decided to to get rid of the clutch fan and shroud setup, and go electric.

There are several, and cheaper ways to go electric other than my way.

What I chose was Jegs 555-52118 dual 12" 3100 CFM fan.
http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performan...52118/10002/-1

And a Painless Performance fan relay kit.
http://www.jegs.com/i/Painless-Perfo...30102/10002/-1

This thing really pulls the air, fits the width of the radiator perfectly, and covers all but an inch gap along the entire bottom of the radiator.

I welded a mounting bolt on each side of the lower part of the radiator to bolt a 1/4 x 1" thick aluminum cross bar to. The fan rest on this, by bolts and large washers I threaded into the recessed nuts already mounted in the fan housing.
I added an aluminum spacer an a few washers on the bolts I welded to the radiator to adjust how tight the fan housing would contact the radiator when tightened down. First pic is view from the front. Second pic is view from back of the three bolts with washers supported by the the cross bar.


Bottom view


For the top, I used the same type of aluminum stock to hold the top portion of the new fan assembly tight to the radiator. I used the existing radiator mounting holes for the installation.
Now mounted up, the fan assembly is rock solid.


Well, thats all for now. Hoping that the next pics I show, are of a newly painted Cab sitting on the chassis.

Great work, looks amazing. What distributor is that, and where did you get the wire looms?

Updating again....A few pics from the body shop. For what I gave these guys to work with , I thought they did a great job. There are a couple of things that will need to be fixed after I bring the assembled truck back to them.
Many hours of ding removal went into the tailgate...$$$$$


both of the fenders I bought from a fellow member here. My originals were in need of some serious repair.

It doesn't look like it here, but the Box needed the most work. I almost scraped the box after they started. Was going to make it a flat bed truck, but my sweetheart convinced me to get it repaired. It turned out better than I expected.
Got the new fuel tank installed. Went to MTS supply and ordered a 25 gallon fuel tank and sending unit, that I mounted in the spare tire area. I could of went with the larger 31 gallon tank which is the same dimension but a couple of inches deeper. http://www.mtscompany.com/images/chevygmc/2225.jpg
Found a site that sells the fuel hose I needed to complete the install.http://www.jmesales.com/catalog/gasdiesel-farm,4455.htm
I'm starting to see daylight at the end of the tunnel for the first time. I still have a long way to go.
Fuel system is now operational to run the truck.
Lots to do yet, Dash is going in next. Thinking of scraping the stock wiring and going with new wiring from painless http://www.summitracing.com/parts/prf-10103
Aftermarket gauges, and a tilt column thru Summit also, along with Corbeau moab bucket seats. BJS offroad bumpers are on the Christmas list, hope fully Santa thinks I was a good boy.........?

Wow. Just WOW.

I've never liked that color, when Jeep came out with it for their (60th?) Anniversary. But it looks fantastic on that truck.

I can't believe how clean it all looks, you're doing an amazing job. Keep it up!

Back at the begining you said you never tackled a project this big. Looks Pro to me. Keep up the great work. Did you use POR15 on those cab cross members. What about the chassis and axles?
