Drove down to Frankfort today to get the title work started. It was a waist of a trip. Did not have all the paperwork I needed. Rolling Eyes

I will Johnny. Everything you buy she said it has to have the person you bought it from's name, address and the VIN of the car you took the part off of and it has to be notorized. There is a little more. I will do a thread on what it all takes and post it when I get it all done.

Took a few days off. I wrenched my back putting the rearend in the truck when Corey tried to flip it around while we was walking with it and the club's grill out and some family time left a few days with nothing done.
Went out for a couple hours tonight. Figured out my front brake line brackets and got them on. The rubber line was too short to reach the frame and this is a budget build so I found some brackets, bent them and opened one end up for the rubber line. I still need to clean up my welds but I have some more frame welding in that area so I didn't worry much about it tonight.

Day 28
It was cool enough to try to get something done tonight. Didn't really happen though. I got my other rubber brake line bracket mounted and ran a few fancy bends on some brake lines. I thought I would be able to get the front brakes hooked up but when I went to run the line into the master it was too big. So I need to grab a couple fittings to make that work.
I figured I would get the cables hooked up for the battery. I bought the cable and had to put the ends on it. I soldered the ends on and everything was going good. I had just enough cable for both - & + terminals. I unbolted the old junk that was on the engine and put the new cable on the starter. A few turns and BAM!! I busted the stupid housing for the solenoid. First time I have ever done that. I wasn't too happy and of corse have no junk starters laying around to rip the solenoid off of.
I'm getting down to the little stuff and seems everything I do either doesn't fit, work or I break it. I was a little ticked off so I called it a night.

Day 30
After searching a few stores i found the fittings I needed to get the front brake lines all hooked up. The front brakes are all ran and hooked up to the master. Worked on a few samll things tonight. Little more on the battery and some other stuff. Everyone kept saying I would rip that small drive shaft apart with the big block. I had another drive shaft so I did a little cutting to get what I needed. This is just to get it rolling so I can move it around. I will pull it and have them balance it when I get time.
Here is what one looks like if you have never done it. Measure where you need it cut. Toss it on a chop saw to get the straightest cut you can. Then cut away below the weld. You will see the clolor of the metal change when you go through the tube and into the yoke. Have to watch close. Knock it loose and this is what ya have.

You will have the weld still on the yoke. That has to come off. Like above you can watch the cutting wheel and it will start to show small signs when you go through the weld and into the yoke. Clean it all up and try to fit it. It will be tight. If you have a clean cut on your tube and you feel that it's even to both side of the yoke then start welding.

Like I said this is not the best way but it will make the car move. Don't do this and think you are going to be blasting down the road at 100MPH. It may shake the bolts loose. If you are not sure about your welds have the drive line shop fix it for you. If you trust yourwelds and measurement and you know you are close then weld it and have them balance it.
One short driveshaft. I still need to switch to the 400 yoke but that should be too bad.

Guy up in Ohio chopped the top and then it went on Craigslist. Not sure who has it now.

You would do it all over again! cheers
I wish I would have had video of us in the 34 that night. That was a fun night. Racing around with Tim in his 195?? Olds, screwing with the bikers and Kenny almost falling out the door. I thought for sure he was going to rip my seat out of the floor and drag me out the back door with him. That may be a story for that one thread we posted about car stories lol

Here's a few pics I got from Eddie. The top was dropped.
