01-12-2017 05:24 PM Cab spacers and springs
I have been getting some screeching and rubbing between the cab and frame. I cut some 1/8 inch spacers and placed them between the cab and frame. I also added some springs to allow the cab to move as the frame flexes. I made a guard to prevent the springs from chaffing. By adding more spacers to the rear of the cab I was able to adjust the gap on the hood.

01-12-2017 05:19 PM Parking brake issues
My parking brake handle would not travel enough to apply the brakes. It also kept cutting my handle boot. After closer inspection I found that the pivot point was too low. I had mounted it too low on the bracket. I relocated it up higher on the bracket. It still was too tight for the boot. I got a piece of ź inch aluminum and machined out the bottom to allow the boot to slide within the boot clamp.

So I had some clearance problems with my front tires rubbing. I went on eBay and got some thinner spacers. They fit very sloppy. So I machined a spacer to fit inside the spacer.

10-15-2016 03:14 PM New decal
It seems that everyone that asks about the engine they say “What is it a 350?”. So I picked up a 327 decal at Fall Carlisle. Guess what the first show that I went to after applying the decal someone asked, you guessed it “What is it a 350?”

10-15-2016 03:13 PM Overheating problems
I know that I said that I would mount the fans to the radiator, but I changed my mine. I took one of the suggestions and cut out all the metal that I could without weakening the shrouds/fan mounts. . I then added some rubber weather strip around the fans.
Let’s see how well this works.
