Scraper neighbor mentioned he had a couple of lawn batteries a few days ago. He saw me outside so he brought them over. First one charged in 30 minutes. Second one going now. $5 each is what he can get for them so that's what he'll sell them to me for.   They even fit the battery holder from the Q45 with a slight mod to the top strap that will make it even lighter.

Rookie.  1/18 to 2/1 between posts hardly counts as pulling an Angry.

You don't want to berk with Ms. Mary.  She's actually the scrapper's MIL.  I think in her 80s at this point.  She runs this end of the street.  No one berks with Ms. Mary.

The spring Turkey Rod run swap meet started today. I dropped Lil Stampie at school and headed down. 

First I found this beautiful Edelbrock air cleaner for $5. I think I might have over paid.

Next after walking 90% of the field I finally found a 351W aluminum intake for $100.

Woohoo I did some stuff. Not my plan for today but it's what called my name as I walked up. 

I started with grinding a rusty screw to free the grill shell from the Model A. Then placed it with the Jeep Wrangler radiator to see.

Oh that looks close. I cut off the Jeep side mounting brackets and ended up with this.

So freaking close. Then I did the GRM version of phone a friend and I'm waiting for the response.

You passed on that big yellow Accel Super Coil?  Every self-respecting muscle car guy had one of those on their car back in the 1970s.  smiley

Next time I run across one I'll grab it for you.  This Ford will be getting a GM HEI conversion.

Right now I'm in clear out space to build mode.  I sold a trailer last week.  That helps.  Think I'll see if the neighbor scrapper wants what I refer to as the engine trailer.  Then "build" a "frame table".  I use both of those terms loosely.

Oh I'd say like 90%.  I mean I have about all the parts.  Just need to throw them together.  It's that last 10% that's a bitch.

I got some pure sexiness today.

 

What could that be?

Turns out one side fits the diff flange. And the other side fits the driveshaft flange. 

This is exactly what I needed to make my junkyard Ford/C3/Frontier driveshaft fit my junkyard Q45 diff.  Thanks Scott and great job of taking a rednecks metric measurements and making a piece of art.

Fit on that thing looks spot on.  I'm really happy with that considering I didn't have the parts in-hand to test fit.

You're like a Renaissance Redneck.  Metric is no challenge to you.

Getting closer but still gathering stuff. 

Started out last week with bgkast offering two free Howe master cylinders. 

That got me thinking about pedal cluster so I thought I remembered a gas pedal from the tote of free I got when I picked up the engine. Yep found it.

Those MCs mean I needed a brake pedal and a way to adjust. After some negotiation with the seller I bought this Howe brake pedal with balance bar. Now I can have bragging rights on the lightest/coolest brake system.  Just waiting on a GRM express pickup by Tom in a few weeks. 

On the way to my last job I saw what I thought was some plexiglass sitting beside the road. Went back after work and yep 2x4 foot piece.

 

My frame "table" legs came in today. Notice that they're made of aluminum so that means the "table" will be faster than all those other frame tables out there.

I sold a trailer last week and a truck last night so I'm gaining my space back. I need to move the previously belonging to the cool Patrick trailer out so I can give the engine trailer to the scraper. That should free up enough space to start on the frame "table".

On the way to school this morning I saw that a neighbor had out these out at the street. Thinking they'll make good floors.
