Re: project "C10 Fever" (68 factory black 396 swb)

I wasn't sure what PS hoses to buy to fit my CVF Racing setup, which has mid-mount alt and PS pump, so I just bought hoses that were supposed to work with a factory pump to start somewhere. Needless to say it was not a good fit, and would have conflicted with the inner fender. It probably would have worked, but not for me.

I couldn't find any info on this particular arrangement, so I poured over images on Summit and other sites for all kinds of PS hoses, with a basic idea of what shape I needed. I ended up going with these part numbers, which worked pretty good!

return line: inlinetube.com part no. for 71-72 trucks
pressure line: edelmann 70911 from summit (not a direct fit application)

And I bought an OEM ps line frame clamp from a forum member to finish it off.

The driver side header (Sanderson BB8) bolted right in, no conflict anywhere.

The passenger side was another story.

1. I have wavered back and forth about pulling my th350 (functional, in the truck) and rebuilding my th400. I have the parts, it's just that I'm trying to draw a line so I can move closer to getting this thing on the road. If I pull the drivetrain, I'll end up replacing the driveline and diff (I have a set of posi 4.11's also) and then I'll decide to pull the cab, etc, etc. So anyway, I leave the thing in there, and go to bolt in my headers and wham. The th350 dust shield flange is freaking huge, and sticks out at least 1/2-inch too wide. It hits the header flange. So I cut and grind and cut and grind the trans flange, and finally get it to clear (thankfully with the fenders off, I could sort of reach in there). Problem solved. Which leads to the second issue.

2. Now that the trans clears, the starter solenoid case hits the side of the headers. I already bought the wrong starter once, which was for the wrong flywheel teeth apparently. So I bought another that's correct for the flywheel, but hits the headers. So I am frustrated at this point, and ended up carefully and surgically (not, ha ha it's called a BFH) recessed a small portion of the header to clear the solenoid. Fortunately I got these cheap, and no one will see it anyway. I would have bought another starter, but I would have had to buy a $100+ mini-starter, and there was still a chance it might not have worked. Anyway, I got it to clear. After I knew it would work, I pulled it back out, and mocked up the trans cooler lines. They run RIGHT in the exhaust path just below the header. LOL! I'll deal with that later. Headers are installed.... I made sure to wire up the starter first, because it will NOT be easy getting in there later if needed.
