though I've been working on electrical stuff and suspension bushings while I wait for some more motor parts... who would have thought a tiny littl hunk of metal would hold me up 6 weeks

Man I gotta tell ya…sometimes ya gotta make do with what you have on hand. My radiator of course wasn't a factory original, so like most after market stuff…they don't quite fit and in most areas need "modification" (see my earlier post about my header faux pas.). Well it was fitting right against the radiator support, at the top tank…I damn sure didn't need to be wasting time….I came up with a pretty quick fix though…I had some 1" alum square stock cut the pieces to fit and drilled some holes, had the right length bolts…wal-lah…redneck tech comes in handy when you've got a tight budget for your project.
Tomorrow I gotta go around and finish putting the rest o' clamps on, install the electric fan, install the solid motor mounts, run the tranny lines, add a fuel petcock for security reasons and wire the ignition system.
Oh yeah…about trying to install the radiator upside down…I'd rather not talk about it. Let's just say I wasn't "on my game" yesterday.
The other day I figured out my exhaust system…it is gonna look so trick and be so custom; how you say, S I C K…..well I'll let the cat out of the bag when the time get's nearer.
thanx for y'alls support!

I help out a friend with an old 66 dart and the diagram for the ENTIRE CAR fit on an 8.5x11 sheet
my engine swap on the other hand
I'm thinking I might send it out to have someone else do it for me

you gotta remember that i didn't take the car apart several years ago. also i've lost the pix that i took 17 years ago for reference to show me how to put it all back together....
i got the starter in and wired, and every thing fell into line once i found the fuse block and figured where the plugs belonged....i'm working on putting the ignition switch and the gauges in.
i got a wiring diagram that is 8.5 x 17 in. from classic wiring on ebay. that is worth it's weight in gold.
yeah, your swap is a li'l bit complicated....i've been contemplating getting a friend for 30+ years to come up to my house and tie up some loose ends that i think can't get done without assistance.

that doesn't even include the transmission harness either
and the reason it doesn't include it is because I don't have one and have to make my own
