Yes, I have considered that very thing. If you clicked on the link from hotrod magazine I posted in one of the first posts, that was exactly how they did it.

I am hoping I can find something that will work but can always build your idea too! Thanks for sharing.

I'm watching but just don't have much to say other than nice work and keep it up.

More work on the fuel line this week. I put in the E85 sensor, the fuel pressure sensor, a filter, and will mate up a braided line to the push on connector at the fuel rail.

Newest challenge is after welding up the flanges on the headers and installing them for what I thought was the last time, I found out the O2 sensor wonít fit due to it hitting the transmission cooling block! Damn, there is always something with these things!

Also, the O2 sensors I bought from Rock auto wonít plug into my harness. Double damn!!!

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: And so it begins.... 65 shortbed, lay frame, LT engine build

So my last post was the end of May! A lot has happened since then but the main reason that not much is happening is it is viscously hot here in Houston.

My buddy that had the shop I was working in had decided to go back to a full time job and work part time in his shop. That has set me back a bit as he will need to clear out the high priority customers before any fun time with me can be found.

I had to load the chassis and bring it back to the house where I am already bursting at the seams.

Iím struggling with the fact that this build was going to be a long one and now it is even longer!

The blue 64 with the camper top is what will be going on my chassis some day in the far far away future!

Logistic set backs suck almost as much as our lovely hot weather. I feel your pain on both. At least the 64 is together & can be enjoyed 'as-is' in the interim (the fertilizer from the b*ll sh*t).

That is true. I take it out and drive it early some mornings

I donít want to take it apart until I absolutely have to because it will be the point of no return after I do that. At least now I have a full truck to used and sell if I ever get to frustrated with the length of time this build is taking.
