OK, i'd sure like to take another road trip your way. when i get complete we'll have to hit another "local" show together........


got the steering column and shaft finished and installed, used parts from 4 different vehicles, (nobody said it was easy being cheap).




incase i didnt' have enough going on, i decided to start the wiring. got fuse panel mounted and bundle created.....

got about 90% of the wiring completed and just couldn't wait any longer to start the engine. I dont' have a gas pedal or throttle linkage (progressive carbs are hooked together) no clutch linkage etc....
1st start adjusted timing, checked for leaks, burned off all the paint on head/exhaust etc....

video is 2nd startup.

http://youtu.be/YAIuUnPNIfw

also put 9 quarts of gear oil in everything, and installed the Moser shafts.......

I installed the "hanging pedals" from a 78 ford F-150 and used a power master/booster for brakes awhile ago. I'd planned to use the rods and levers that came with pedals to operate clutch, but after looking at amount of work and modifications i decided to go with a Hydrualic Clutch setup.

so m y search led me to the clutch setup used on 1960 to 68'ish Dodge W300's. It's a 1 1/8" bore master and 1" slave

Hi Gregg, glad to see your nearing the finish line on Mater! Last time I saw it in person it still had quite a way to go!

I'm actually living in PA myself now, I brought back an old CJ3B that was built in Spain and sold in Italy, it's going to be my winter project this year. It came stock with a Perkins Diesel engine, so I'm going to have to brush up on my diesel skills! It's a little rough from the OP-Lift, but it made it in one piece!

Take it easy, maybe we'll meet up at some point and talk about building crap!

Thumbs up 300 i6

This is a cool build. I love the 300 with the 3 carbs on the custom intake. Actually the whole thing is trick, I can't really pick out one thing that I like better than the others. its all pretty dang cool.

Great job!

Dude I definitely miss your Jeep,but you have gone so way over the top on this build. You know my physical condition,but watching the start up vid(love the push button start) I swear I almost got wood! I know the technology you have put in this is more modern but it looks like a brand new '53.

I love the truck and I have followed this build for a long time. I still however just don't know what the purpose of the doubler is but hey it's your truck.
