Happy 2014, since Christmas I have installed my speedometer gears (electric to manual), steering wheel, and today my drop down battery box tacked in place. I used my original batt. box and switched sides. I also cut the angle part of the box. I added angle iron with a number 7 cut to allow it to drop down. I will use a 75 type battery.
Remotes: I plan on installing battery remotes in the passenger side vent that I replaced. It will be hidden with panel access for a jump off if needed.
Well new job and a true week off. My wife worked and the kids played in the yard. This what I got done: wired all rear end minus temporary tail lights until I get my bed on, all gauges are wired inside the cab, gas tank secured plumed and wired. Inline brake line removed, adding an electric one, 700r4 tv cable added. I had to modify the edelbrock bracket that says it fit. I also had to modify the throttle bracket. Studied the 700r4 TV cable before doing it. I thought everything was going to bolt up when I purchased all the same brand, why not; I had to modify everything else. In addition, tightened everything up, steering, water pump, brake pedals etc.
Things to do:
Find a 12 volt switch source for tach. (Might tie into my gauges)
Front end sheet metal and wire it.
Vacuum line to booster
Mount battery box and remotes
