    Decent progress made today. i put in the steering rack and front bracing, along with the fan, oil pan, etc.
    one thing i ran in to was the crank pulley was not aligning very well with the water pump or the alt. it was about 1/8+ inches in. ended up pulling it back off and getting some 1-3/8" x 14 ga shims from Tractor Supply. i cut a notch for the key in the shim and put the pulley back on. Lines up quite well now. guess i never noticed it before.

    tomorrow i will do some odds and ends and then prime the oil pump. still waiting on the rocker assembly but i want to have as much done as possible when it arrives.

        Well pictures always make things look better. but it is certainly better than it was before.... well all except for one thing. for those who look closely, they will see i have the cross-brace in upside down. realized it when i went to put the radiator in.
        always something.... and i even had pictures to reference. ha!
