    Awesome project, subbed! And I really like your wife's C10. My dad has a 67 C20 in a similar color scheme, although it looks like someone actually took care of your C10 since it has shiny paint, haha. What's going on with the Model A frame?

The seta has the piston dome like a 2.5, but in the longer stroke. If you are using the 200 casting head, then it's a complete eta motor.

      You are correct, my mistake that is what I meant, 2.7eta not super eta, i am using the 885 head

      The c10 is a really nice truck, just over 100k on it, original paint with a little patina, we detailed it quite a bit about a year ago, which still seems to be holding up pretty well.

      The model A is something we will probably be starting fairly soon, during the breaks while the 02 is out getting the cage and then again for paint we will start on it fully, weve been collecting quite a bit of parts for it.

      Currently looks like this, but nothing is really bolted together, just sitting on the chasis

                Well the good news for me is that my wife is possibly a bigger gear head than I am

                    Nice build. Keep up the good work.
                    Did you modify or redo the welds on the turbo manifold?

                      I did not, this is actually the turbo manifold that wobbie had run in his 02, in fact all the turbo parts except my turbo is from him. He has said that he did not have any issues with the manifold when he ran it so I decided to just run it as is.

                      However I picked up a tig welder last week, should be here next week and I figure once I finish everything, a good fun experiment might be making a turbo manifold from scratch, so I may just build my own down the road.

                            Got a little bit of time to work on the car today, was hoping to get a lot more done than I did, but o well, progress is progress

                            I got the trans and a dummy block in so that I could make sure my tunnel will clear all around, hoping I have enough room for the slave, took awhile to get the both in there and bolted up since it was just me and no hoist





                            Then there was about 2 hours of getting under the car measuring, climbing back out, cutting etc making the trans brace, I got what I think should work all finished up, now i just need to clean up the welds so it can mount flush and get some holes drilled to bolt it in



                            Should get that mounted tomorrow and hopefully be able to tackle and finish most of the rest of the trans tunnel

                              Spent a little time today working more on the trans tunnel





                              The trans tunnel is now constructed for the most part, need to finish connecting it to the fire wall and to the rear of the trans tunnel





                              i was worried I would have to shorten my akg selector rod but it looks like it should clear the ebrake lever, I may look into shortening the ebrake lever 3 or so inches which would then leave me with the same distance between the shifter and ebrake as stoke, well see I have investigate how it works and the ease of shortening it
