April 2014 I installed the new steering column from Speedway. I knew I would have issues with the linkage, trying to fit around the headers with the original frame and mustang 2 front end. it took a lot of measuring and experimenting, but it came out pretty good.
April of 2014 Got the radiator and electric fan installed. All stainless bolts, tranny cooler, and digital controller that will allow me to set the temperature control points, and add air conditioning at a later date. Added braided chrome covers to the hoses.
March 2014 While cab work is being done, decided to get ready to work on interior. The original heater motor was locked up, so decided to rebuild the entire unit. I had already had the local radiator shop overhaul the core when he did the radiator, so the unit was already out and disassembled. I ordered a 12volt replacement motor from LMC, but even though they claimed it was a direct replacement, it was smaller in diameter, and the mounting studs were narrower. I called their customer service, and they were clueless, so I returned it and ordered a different one from American Classic. Again, it was smaller, and customer service referred me to the distributor, who was helpful, but had no solution. What I ended up doing was to take the old 6volt motor apart and glue it on the butt of the new motor with black RTV. The pictures tell the story. Now it looks right from the firewall side.
