Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

Well the first fire up could not have went much better. It fired up on the first crank and idled decent. The ECM is still how it came from PSI so it definitely needs a tune and I had to cobble together an intake tube so my MAF meter could be mounted. The Fans came on at 190 and 195 like they were supposed to. I am super happy so far.

Since there were no issues I'm going to get the front end assembled for good and fab up a permanent air intake that will clear the inner fenders. I did take some video today but I need my son to show me how to put it on here. We are off to a local car show but I will try to post the video tonight.

Man you do great work! But I noticed the relays mounted above the rearend. Are you using waterproof connectors on those relays? If not could be trouble in the future.

I'm like you, I don't like wires showing. I just got my truck back from painting. So I'm finally at the point of putting everything back together. You have given me lots of ideas on how to hide my wires for my truck.

This was my first job of hiding wires on my 67 Cutlass. I learned a lot on what not to do.

I have a small junction box(waterproof) like you would see on the tongue of a trailer that the relays mount inside of. Your engine bay looks great by the way.

It does feel good brother. I need to get the sheet metal back on and get it tuned. I'm ready to drive it!

Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

It feels like I have been away from here for a year. The truck is extremely close to being done but it's not there yet. For those of you that know me personally, you know what I have been going though with my dads health. It has taken the wind out of my sails as far as getting out in the shop and not much has gotten done in the past few months. I had an offer to buy the truck as it sits a few weeks ago but he never showed or called back. I have made up my mind to finish the truck, shake it down and put a few thousand miles on it and let it go to a new home. I really thought I would keep this one for a while but my heart just isn't in it anymore.

I will update this thread soon. Thanks to all of you for the PM's and texts over the last few months. My family appreciates it more then you know. I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving!

Mike

Re: 1970 Med Olive Project

It felt good to get back on the truck this weekend. I took my steering wheel to specialty paint and had them color match the wheel and mix a single stage and put it in a rattle can. I painted the new Iditit column yesterday and got it installed today.

I need to figure out what Iím going to do for shift linkage. Lokar makes a cable linkage that looks cool by Iím open for any suggestions.

Mike, I'm sorry to hear about your fathers health. I'm glad to see your back on the truck, the steering column looks good.
