Here are 4 new pictures of my engine installation in my truck. Click this link and then the next 3 pictures http://rides.webshots.com/photo/2724272330080251109JbMOHu

I have all of my engine accessories figured out and mounted. Also have new drive shafts made and installed.
Presently working on cleaning and regasketing my new Roadranger RTO-6610 transmission (to replace the non overdrive version currently installed).
The clutch linkage is almost done, just need to drill a few holes in the frame and install it.

Next on my list is making all my brake and fuel lines.
Also trying to find a company to custom make some air tanks for me for my air starter. I need one or two at about 8" diameter by 6 feet long, and a few at about 10" by 5 feet long. Then I will mount them and plumb everything.
Shortly after that I will have a running driving chassis.

Wow Grigg, That is sweet work. I love the time you are putting into the fabrication. Your patience really shows, and the outcome is spectacular! I can only see the pictures for a second or two...guess cause I'm not a member of "rides webshots"? Anyway, clicking back and forth, I was able to see your awesome work.

Thanks guys,
It's fun to work on, and the end of the tunnel doesn't seem so far away now.
I could not have gotten this far with out all of you guys to answer questions and provide suggestions.
I can't wait to drive it, perhaps this summer....

That is some really nice work. I like the fact your engine swap isn't something you see or will hear everyday. Very cool.

It's too bad we live so far apart cause I'd be happy to build those tanks for you. Anyways... keep up the good work.

PaulyBuilt,
Is building air tanks your profession? I would like for my tanks to be certified, that's why I am looking for an air tank company to make them rather than do it myself.
Anyone ever had air tanks made by a reputable company?

Try www.mantank.com or www.penway-inc.com or www.steelfabtanks.com

My company does business with all of them. Steel Fab seems to have the longest lead time, but best prices. Penway and Manchester are the two we primarily use thanks to their shorter lead times and superior service.


Never hold your farts in. They travel up your spine and into your brain...that is where crappy ideas come from.

Looking good Grigg, are you going to do a cross country trip with it when done?
