Thanks Todd! Power steering cylinder mounted. Need to get another 90* hose when I get them made. Mounting valve is next.

Can't wait to see how you do the valve and  control.

Me too!:laughing-rolling:

 

This is somehow getting mounted where the fan gear sits now. I will be using the stock steering tower as the power steering shaft is the same diameter as the gt14. I will simply mount the valve, insert the shaft and cut it to length, weld the pieces back together and reinstall the steering tower. Sounds easy, hope it is. Then I will get all my hoses made.

Axle and spindles were a little on the worn side. Reamed out the axle to just under 1" and installed 7/8" id x 1" od brass bushings. Waiting for a 7/8" reamer to finish this up. Should take out all my slop. :thumbs:

Also today I thought I would try my pattern on some plywood for my fuel tank before I have the aluminum cut. Looks like it will work just fine.

Try getting ready to sell your house and transfer to another state. 

 

Id even considering selling the GT22-8 if I could find a willing soul to finish it who is willing to give me a fair price....

 

Worst Case it’s coning to show pretty much similar to how it sits currently. Might get turning brakes finished but doubt I’ll get the paint and finishing touches done by show time...

Maybe so but not having one WHOLE side in place (could) cause a small,  slight leak. .......

Well I have tile coming this week so the bathroom saga continues 💰💰💰. When I get that finished, IF the boss doesn't find anything else for me, I might get some more play time.

That is the see through side. Saves me from having to put a fuel gauge in it. :thumbs:

Got the muffler guard mount made and installed. Need to make a lower bracket to keep it from vibrating. Also trying to get some electrical components mounted so I can make my wiring harness.

While enjoying the nice cool evening breeze , I Started the wiring for the "firewall" I made from lexan. It will get painted so its not see through. I have two relays here, one for electric fuel pump and the other for the starter. Two fuses for switch power for a horn😂 And a power socket(cig lighter). I have a whelen patrol car switchbox I will be gutting and using the switches from that for headlights, fender lights and tail lights. Got to figure out a spot for a volt gauge.
