    Lets see pic of your trucks

    Was -40.2 C here this morning, (Sask. Canada) my daughter went to Arlington, Tx. this week for a PBR event, and said it was -6 C there this morning, she was a bit dissappointed, she was hoping to see something a bit warmer on her trip!
  2. The rag joint is running straight, i was thinking of getting rid of it, but figured it might be good to leave it? I was thinking it would take some road noise out of the steering wheel, but i don't know, i havent driven it yet! I'll maybe revisit the steering after a road test. I dont see in any way at the moment that it would be unsafe.
  3. It'll be interesting to see how it performs. It has 3.55 gears, so it should be about right. I'll put a better intake and carb on later if I find a deal on something better. These engines respond to more air and fuel if you can get it through them. You'll maybe find this dyno test interesting, I sure did https://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/threads/dyno-testing-a-stock-1972-440.249866/
  4. There's a rag joint on the end of the column so I need the heim joint to stabilize the shaft. My dakota wiring is in good shape there's just too much of it haha! I'm using the stock pump(in the tank) Stock fuel filter also, I just added the fuel regulator that will give me 6.5 lbs for a carb (it's adjustable but preset at 6.5) it has a return back to tank (I used the factory return line). I had a 1968 440 hp spec cam on the shelf that I used. It was one I swapped for a bigger one in my 440 in my 1971 satellite. I'm thinking it will be an improvement but yes it's still a low comp engine. What's your thoughts? The alternator bracket turned out good, but it was after I was done I realized I used a ford style alternator! Oh well a bit sacreligious. I had to mount ps pump high because of those dang elephant ears, they blocked the fitting on the back of the pump. And if I went lower, the oil filter and rad hose were in the way of the belt.

    "Farmer fixes"

    This is how someone repaired one of the rear fenders on my truck. This is after I cut the piece out obviously. Functionally it worked, but cosmetically, not so good!
  6. Just an update. I pulled engine back out to go over it. I put a little bigger cam in it, new timing set, all new gaskets. Built new alternator and ps pump brackets. Steering works. Plumbed in the fuel regulator. Now I'm sorting out the dakota wiring harness, getting rid of everything not needed. I think it'd been easier starting from scratch on the wiring.
  7. Most of the stuff I've done is lots of measurements then draw in cad. The fuel fill I just cut the hole so the "bulge" fit inside the hole, then I didn't have to worry about the profile. The inside was hidden by the angle piece inside the box, which I profiled with the angle grinder. I don't worry too much about gaps, that's what mig wire is for. (Within reason)
  8. Haha, I must be losing my mind. I have an old chopper i built from a honda cb750. Did it years ago, but you got me thinking, it has Harley fat bob tanks on it, with a left hand and right hand caps on the tanks, well to my surprise the threads are the same!! Good advice on making patterns also Thanks!
  9. I'd like to find a screw in chrome dome fuel cap that would work, I've looked around but can't seem to find one. Does anyone know of any? This is the closest I could find, but not sure if it's same thread. Wow that's a long link I pasted!! https://m.ebay.com/itm/1978-1979-Chevrolet-Caprice-nova-Chevette-gas-cap-NOS-6410845/142669779286?ul_ref=http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5574735181&toolid=10001&campid=5336086427&icep_item=142669779286&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&srcrot=711-53200-19255-0&rvr_id=1827310808265&rvr_ts=6bfd1bd61680ab1d08500da1fffa6dfe&_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1&ul_noapp=true&pageci=97836c47-9619-4fac-b33e-2e6dbf817906&epid=12013805394
  10. So I finally tackled my fuel filler. I was hoping to plumb it into original fuel fill in the corner of cab, but was impossible due to cross members in the box being in the way. This is what I ended up doing, I'm not totally happy with the look, but it's functional.
  11. I, with the help of a friend, did a very scientific calculation of jumping up and down in the bed, there was no rubbing, i think it'll be fine. Unless i do a dukes of hazzard jump, but i have no plans for that!

    51 Seat rebuild

    I have a complete seat, it needs recovering, that you can have for free. But I'm in sask canada
  13. Just experimenting with different looks. I'm leaning towards 5" exhaust. With a nice turnout and in flat black
  14. I haven't done much on the truck. Got my wheels, And the dd to 3/4 round u joint for my steering. I haven't made a mount for the heim joint yet. No pics of that yet, but have some of the wheels. Sits low with the 185 60r15 tires on the front. I'll prob go with a little bigger tire maybe a 205 60r15?
