02-05-2012 09:58 PM Cleaning up somethings
Raised the car up on jack stands to make it easier to work on the lower areas,and underneath. Fixed the lower rear areas of the front fenders where they meet the running boards.Also cleaned up the main parts of the running boards.Also makes it easier to clean up around/under the car.....

02-05-2012 09:49 PM Exhaust
Been working on a few things including the exhaust.Having the car sit so low with the bags dumped,I ended up using a pair of mufflers from Spintech,they are the thinest mufflers I could find, and some of their 3" oval tube. Used some tabs from Deeds Engineering to mount the system,they are pretty trick and have a bushing that can handle up to 500 degrees. Added some mounts to bolt everything to frame. Made some cutouts in the running boards for the tips to stick out.

01-18-2012 09:04 PM Power Steering Pump
With the pump bracket sorted out,I needed to put the cage bar back in.I pushed the pump all the way in,all the way out and centered in on the adjustment bracket. Checked it for pulley clearance,and hose fitting clearance,the return line elbow can be rotated toward the steering box. Ended up trimming some off the bar end,then rotating it outward slightly.Then welded the bar back in.

01-18-2012 08:52 PM Power Steering Pump
One of the challenges I created for my self was the power steering pump.Between moving the motor forward and adding the front cage bars, it did not leave much room for the power steering pump.The front motor mounts are also in the way. I've been using Alan Grove brackets so far,and used one for the pump also.I'm using a GM type 2 pump for its small size. I ended up having to cut the end of the front cage bar loose to try and get things mocked up into place. It turned out that I could weld the pump bracket into my existing motor mount and could make things work,(not the best looking,but functional.)The pump has a serpentine pulley on it right now,ordered a v-groove pulley that's not here yet.
