Been looking for a site that will maybe give me some tips on building my '54 Chevy 5 window P/U. The truck was originally from Ok. and is pretty much rust free. I picked up a '41 Chevy frame (so I was told) that already had a Mustang IFS welded in saving me the time installing one on stock frame and boxing it. I have a SBC 383 with a Dyers blower (dyno's at 648 hp). My question is I need to find out how to install a front motor plate and a good place to buy one. I have to move the motor forward some to get the distributor and part of the blower out of the cab. I would at some point like to put in a 4 bar set up with bags if that sounds worthwhlie doing. I'm going to make a roll cage from 1 1/2 pipe to stiffen frame. I've been building Harley choppers and bobbers for years but was center punched last summer (by some idiot texting) and the wife thinks maybe it's time for me to quit riding (?). Okay , sure, I can do that.....not. Anyway I want to get this little Chev up with the minimal for now just to get it running. I'll replacwe what I break as needed and as money permits. By the way am retired living on Sam's dime which isn't much. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Look forward to talking with you all. By the way the cab is channelled 4 inches on the frame and I'm running a Muncie rock crusher,
