      Thanks! My hope is that it will make the truck more drivable. Since the rebuilder dolled up the oil filter with decals and did the whole thing with correct paint, I decided to decal the air cleaner also. I have also repainted the inside of the entire clip. I'm leaving the outside all rusty looking. During the time the engine was out I have rebuilt the tranny, added sound deadening to the floor boards and fire wall, and add a stereo w/speakers. At some point in the future I plan to redo the bed with Brazilian Walnut.

            That does look nice. I kind of like the painted intake manifold. Interesting fitting on the heater outlet. What did they do that for?

            Is that a old Ford 4-cylinder in the background?

              The fitting is the standard manual valve for the heater on the head. Don't know what else they have going on. I actually have never been to their place. They specialize in vintage engines especially Model A. Check out their web site:

                Very nice. I imagine that you are in a hurry to start getting it dirty on the road.
