    Ah yes, freedom at last! I was a happy mofo when I got out of the Navy, don't regret going in but don't regret getting out either! Good luck in civilian life!

    Yesterday i dropped the head off to be machined for the tri-power set up. I pick up the head this Friday.

    Today I pulled the old motor and trans. Iam currently cleaning up and painting parts to go on the new motor. Ill get some pics up in the next day or so of the new motor.

    I got the head back from the machine shop and i am currently working on fabricating the 2car new carb mounting flanges for the tri-power setup. If everything goes smoothly i should be ready to drop the motor back in in a couple of days.

    great project. I liked the A100 Dodge pickups too...just about bought one back when they were a "used car" for the very reasonable price of $800.

    BTW, you're gonna need bigger casters on your creeper
