Thank you. I've never been this deep into a vehicle.  There's a whole lot of learning going on. A lot of one step forward then 2 back haha

Msd 6al box is mounted. Just getting into some wiring. Ended up putting a low resistance hei bushing in the distributor (was recommended I do so). Removed the hei module. I needed keyed power to turn the msd box on and off, I ended up removing the resistor wire and pin from the bulkhead and soldered a 12 guage wire to the pin and put it back in the bulk head, this way I have full 12 volt not 8 or 9.
I'm going from a 3 wire alternator to a 1 wire. In what way do I hook this up so that my ammeter still functions? Or will it function with just the 1 wire?

WOW - great build!

You are fixin to have one nice C10  :)

Are those 10" Cragar's on the rear?
'73 Chevy C10, 350, TH350, was a long Fleetside, now she's a short Stepper that's under construction (been in the Family since 1972).

Would rather push a CHEVY than drive a Furd

The rear rims are 15x8. But the 295/50 fits nice on them

Did what I can for wiring, time to put the nose on to keep going. Will take a little bit.  Frostbite electric fans are in the mail, that match the radiator I have

Is that right - that 295/50 looks a lot better!

I have 15x8 Rally's that looked fine with the Fleetside but not so good with the Stepper!
