Well I installed the t-case and shifters.


Decided to change the suspension again. (for the third time) Started with a radius arm setup. Then changed my mind and went with a four link with a track bar, decided that the track bar was going to be in the way of the pinion brake. So I cut all of that off and started on a triangulated four link, which will also improve the angles on the links.

Before angle.


After angle.

Another round of parts arrived yesterday. Now the triangulated four link is mocked up.



I am much happier with the angles now.

Been slow with the updates (and with working on it). Here are some updates

Wiring and plumbing are done. Radiator is in, got lucky and I am able to use the stock fan and clutch.





My helper who thinks it's summer time.


This is what can happen if you don't tighten the torque converter bolts.

So your "helper" broke the torque converter..........ha.....(just teasing)

350 is a real good engine. Always liked them. Looking good.
