Re: Brent's '72 Custom/10 SWB stepside build

Well, we got the new place and started moving in over the summer. Still don't have everything arranged in the shop (to say the least), but the '72 made it into its new home, nestled snugly right up front in the 8000 sq ft machine shed. It won't see any further progress this year, but it's in the best place it's ever been to finally get stuff done once we're settled and the weather is starting to get decent again.

Re: Brent's '72 Custom/10 SWB stepside build

I know you posted this many years ago, but I just wanted to say I appreciate the level of detail in your front end brake line pics. I'm about to put mine back together and I kind of forgot where everything went, so this really helps.

BTW, you have a great project! Everything is really well documented.

Looks fine, but still irritating.

Got all the lines secured today. Had to manhandle the front-to-rear line with the funny bends at the front end, but in the end it all turned out nicely. Pics follow.

In the meantime, I finished up everything I could, which is everything except the fitting at the tank. My only question is about how I routed the line up to the rail and whether anyone thinks it'll be a problem. It's well away from the exhaust and I couldn't come up with a better way to route it without risking interference with something else. I can move it if I absolutely have to, but I hope what I have is okay.

The line is secured every foot or so with stainless cushion clamps. As you can see I used the 12" Dorman double-bead line as-is. Some people have cut it down and put a new flare on one end, but I decided to use my tubing bender and get creative with the routing instead. In retrospect I would have used slightly shallower bends, but it's fine as it is.

Just noticed that the clamp on the right (front) of the fuel pump is slightly crooked. That's gonna bug me until I correct it.

Feedback is appreciated. I don't need my ego stroked but I would like to know ASAP if I did something stupid.
With the fuel pump at the top of the fuel tank in the frame what happens when the tank gets low on fuel. The fuel has to go up hill to get to the pump. They say this pumps will not suck fuel they have too have a gravity feed. It's time for me to do a fuel system and was wondering how this has worked out.

Dearly wish I could tell you, but for various reasons I had to put the project on hold in 2010 and haven't gotten back to it.

I had to do the same thing 3 years ago. Just now getting back at it.
