    Where’s the 25 hp and crashbox??

    sitting in a box where they should be if you really want to drive it much… sure a 25 will “work”  but it would suck..

    Came in Saturday morning and finished up the shifter install. Total pain, but small balls need lots of love.

    Parts have been stacking up for this one. 8B019473-69DB-46F8-82E4-3932C651F7580E2357A9-0C0A-4355-AD2F-003C3D5099DD21FB1524-BB4C-43FE-ABDE-194040DDDAA7

    Going to finish the brake system today. Unstuck, blasted and rattle can painted some OG brake  hardware. Fresh German rear drums epoxy sealed, paint when dry. Assembling front wheel cylinders now. 97104F15-6FDB-4017-A386-C720EEAA6D94783A8755-C032-45D3-93A8-F1FA7CBE20DC9A3D380C-CFF7-4AA3-873E-E35C04BFF81254923D96-19BF-4ADE-958D-849EB7FAD448

    Yeah speaking of this truck, I got back on the engine today. Cole is a Porsche guy or something now.

    I installed a fancy fuel pump, and modified a 6volt backing plate for 12 volt. Going for vintage look.

    Original heater boxes with big elements always work the best. Cleaned the insides, straitened dents, welded flanges, and modified the outlets to snake around the Wolfsburg (tube type) transaxle cradle.
