The reassembly went faster then I thought it would so I missed getting any good pics along the way.

A bit of paint cleaned up the bumper and got it ready to go.

So we based the width of the winch mount off of a standard fairlead but then I ran across the Factor 55 fairlead and assumed it would be the same width. I was wrong as normal so into the mill it went.

After cutting down the ends and chamfering for the weld I wound up with a good snug fit.

I wound up getting a bit distracted so I threw on the TBI while I was waiting for some of the touchup paint to dry.

The eBay air horn and intake I picked up around 5 years ago finally found itself atop an engine. The intake pipe has a tab near the filter so I plan to tie it to the hoop support once the compartment fills up a bit more and I can nail down the angle it will need to sit at.

So I wound up with a DUI distributor but man, that cap is going to be tight!

Quick shot with the cap/rotor off for future reference.

The cap wound up interfering with one of the unused mounting holes so it was time to trim it down.

And a bit more along the neck

This is once I had taken enough off to fit the cap so I smoothed up the surface a bit to make it look like it was supposed to be that shape.

I got it reassembled back on the truck with some fresh paint.

Here is a shot of how snug it is. Just enough room to adjust the timing and the height is set just right so the plug wires just clear the neck. Now I just need to play some Tetris to figure out the best way to lay them out...

Well it is official, I finally have something on the truck that works when a button is pushed.

I got motivated once something was running to finally work on those pesky brake lines. A piece of tubing made quick work of the spirals.

I couldn't figure out how to route the clutch line at first until I thought of running it straight under the booster.

It turned out ok since all of the lines lined up well to head down and under the body.

This will be it for the evening. This is directly underneath the gas pedal where the brake, clutch, fuel, and locker lines all converge. The one pointing left is for the clutch and the one pointing down is for the front brakes. I plan to run a flex line down the upper link.

Here you can see the rear brake line where the flex line will connect and run down the upper link as well

I ended the fuel lines behind the links where I plan to install a rear fuel tank with an in-tank pump.

I threw this on while I was under there. It looks a bit odd but this VSS adaptor was made to also have a speedo cable connected to it but I wound up capping it with the blue cap since there is no room for the speedo cable unless I add a 90* adapter.

Clutch Slave Cylinder

Yup, stole that idea...

Made some more progress on the clutch slave. Picked up a pull slave cylinder from Eric and made a small bracket to hold her on.

This was my first attempt at it...

But I didn't take into account for the raised PTO cover or how it would try and bend up when the cylinder starts pulling.

So I redid the bracket into this. Hopefully this works out.

It's snug at the top but has around 1/4" of clearance. The rest of it fits well in the area it has. A small reroute on the hard line and hooking up the flex hose and it will be good to go.

Rear Fender Clearance

I needed to swap out to heavier springs so I figured it was good timing to test out some flex.

I wont bore you with the stages of trims between what is above and below but this is where I stopped. It still has about 1/2" of upflex before it hits the inner fender so this will be good enough to get it going down the road. Once we tune the suspension out a bit I figure I can do the final trimming and come up with some sort of fender flair.

The axle is in the same position as above but this is a shot showing the clearance between the tire and inner fender.

And back on the ground. The top of the final cut was right along the transition from the flat to the contoured portions.

And a little web wheelin. You can see the scraps from trimming near the chop saw. The sheet metal has gotten pretty flimsy so I am going to need to reinforce it before it's on the road for to long.

Neat work, great attention to detail. I'll be pinching some of your ideas when I get around to fixing my '65 before too long Keep it up, I look forward to seeing it finished.
