Thanks a bunch
Do the axles come out the same as a 9inch on a 53' car rear?
I've got a 48' in mine. used the whole front end from a 48' sedan, works fine.
I believe around 570 for a 239.
I have never used the SEM product but have used Bulldog adheasion promoter for many years with good results.
A buddy of mine put one on his 430 buick motor and had nothing but problems with it.
I used the same stuff on my Model A and it took a few days to dry completly, it'll dry just give it time.
Almost there, looking good Gary. I kinda like the scoop facing the cowl.

I'm runnin Edmunds on my 48' with stock studs.
You Guys rock. Man that look cool.
50/50 mix of ATF and acetone for penatrating oil works the best. learned that here on the HAMB.

Im just thinking if the truck is light and the bars are short the leverage could lift it.
Are the ladder bars too short?
