Mine is a V8 support taken apart, turn the middle, and put together again to make it a straight 6 support.

Look at Allen Grove for brackets. Gets spendy, probably no worse than an aftermarket serpentine, but they make a lot of brackets for conversion configurations.

I have them on the '38 with PS, A/C and alt and that is a tight engine compartment...

I would think an aftermarket company would make a cradle with a off set center formed to clear the radiator and move it forward about 3 inches,,,we use to cut them into to make it easy to remove the motor ,then take a piece of square tubing and bolt it in front of the cradle it would give room to run a long pump ,

My pic was just for reference. He makes brackets for long and short, small and big blocks. Here's a the link to small block, short pump brackets.

Ever heard of a "hydraulic" engine mount? Oil filled.

Never heard if you liked your last photo edit ( post 30,169 ).

After 3 weeks in Florida for work, I was able to spend a little time in the shop today. I ordered a set of load leveler air bags, an on board compressor, and a set of bell tech nitro drop shocks for my truck. I got the shocks swapped out, and the air bag bracket installed on the driver side. Hopefully I'll get the pass side mounted tomorrow...

I put some just plain tan and dark tan up there. Looked bad to me, worse than with red. Personally I think a "faded" (slightly less saturated and lighter) version of the b9ttom color would be as good as solid orange gets. Metall8c or pearl on top would be great.

I just spen5 a few minutesblooking back and forty at browser tabs with tri fives on them. It is too rainy to mow.

The 56 210 is halfway "fixed" compared to a same year belair since the trim is not as awkward looking to me. To me, and I think 56 has cool tail lights. Always have. The6 are neat but not as t8dy as 55s and 57s only belong on 57s. Having thoughts of seeing if I can make a front end that I can "stand to look at". Turn signals are the big killer for me, the grill might be able to stay but I want to flip the bumper and modify the ends.

I met with a Wick Building rep on Friday and went over what I'm hoping for in a new shed. He has a slot available in October, so that would be nice to get it done yet this year.
Spent yesterday packing and moving. I, finally, got the lift over to the new place. Wow, this building is small. I don't know where I will put the second lift and all the racking. I may try to talk my friend, that is storing my '70 Chevelle, into letting me keep the second lift at his place until I can get a building up.

Yup, we bought her Christmas tree too, as it is too tall for her new condo.



I took this pic to sell the snow thrower, but that is the lawn tractor I bought with the house. Nice unit, but a pain in the butt to get the lift arms on the mower deck. It is hydraulic and the book is as clear as mud on how to get them aligned. I eventually did and used it to mow the back lot at the building location.

If I had to use a snow blower much,,i would put an enclosure on it like I have on my golf cart and run some heat off the engine back to the cabin,,,i bought mine at sears,i think around $150 ,It has lasted 6 years so far,,

I keep mine rolled up if not raining or cold..makes it eaiser to get in without cover rubbing my back.

That building looks like a good clean spot to park the current favorites or DDs. Is it far from the house or is there an attached garage? I don't have your layout in my head yet. Always thought covered walkways between buildings are nice, especially up north.

Nifty mower inheritance, you could sure do worse. Is it gonna hunt?

Is she all smiles, about being at the new place?

All I gotta know now that the smoke is clearing is did the Buick come through the move unscarred? If it made the drive, thats a helluva old car in my book.

Call it BLESS.

Hope good times were had by all.

By going back to it, you've earned a fresh edit for the delirious project if / when you want one. Consider yourself blessed since I stopped prodding you about bumpers and grilles.

I have half a mind to make pics of everyone else's rides, but rolling on 24"s, yo.
