I Bought New, but found a bad Lower A-arm Tube bearing, the threads were bad.

I called and talked to Stan Yesterday at ECE, he said they would get another one out right away.

In the mean time i can work on either the Power Brakes or Power Steering, till i get that part from ECE, good thing is that ECE is only 2 days away from me so i should have it this week.

I did i little bit more work on the 67'.

I shortened the brake booster rod to the brake pedal. and then mounted the brake booster & Brake Master.

Of coarse the Brake lines did not match up, I was hoping , but did nto think i would be that lucky.

Mounted the steering linkage

Here are some pics

Ok just as suspected i let it sit for a couple of weeks and no one else works on it during my two weeks off.

I guess i better get back to working on it.

I have the parts back from the powder coater.

I did get some of the steering parts back on

I need to torque the front end bolts.

I pressed in all new bearings on the a-arms, and had some torqued.

Now it is time to install the a-arms

Whats the saying;
Apart FAST, Together SLOW

It's time to turn up some speed, I hope

Any update on this build? Just spent the majority of my morning at work reading up on this one - very inspirational!

I am in the midst of planning a basic build myself - 67 c10 with a straight 6/ 3 on the tree.

Hoping to see a finished product - great, great work!
