I'll give you one bit of advice so you don't do what I did... don't use a regular SBC. too heavy.

or how about not lol... keep my thread alive! haha

glad you got it running. don't forget to weld or brace those steering links before you drive it.

there is one line in the rear that was leaking. one fitting where it come out of the tunnel and makes a turn toward the passenger side just needs to be tightened and the one on top the rear end is the main issue that i never fixed.
