okie dokie, well the engine has been in for a bit and i think we're finally making good progress.
had some problems with brackets [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] but Casey (irjpr) saved the day and found the ones i needed. Yesterday i got the alternator in (a little redneck engineering), the radiator mounted, and the electric fan and (redneck engineered) brackets in. Today was wiring day. First i ran the fan wiring...
1. relay mounted to inside of grill
2. temp switch in intake manifold
3. dual toggle switch inside cab (one for master power, and one for temp switch override)
4. grounds for everything and everything with its own ground
then i ran a ground for the alternator, then i ran a ground for the battery to the block, then a ground for the block to the frame.
hooked the battery up and nothing caught on fire [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
turned on the fans and nothing caught on fire [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
now all i have left is to fab a linkage for the throttle cable and the choke (quadrajet backwards), run some vacuum lines, plug some others, put some more oil in this thing, run the rest of the fuel line and we'll be ready to hear her run [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
well i guess i need to get the exhaust run too [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
anyway, things are moving along (though not very quickly - considering that i got the engine last summer). hopefully we'll hear some noise before the end of the month.
anyone have any pointers on any of the remaining tasks anything is appreciated. thanks,
