Awesome!!!

I am loving the one of a kind touches you are doing on this build!

As far as the tensioning, I thought I saw a power steering pump bracket in the piles of chrome parts. That would allow a place to tension the water pump belt.

Or- for the vintage look you could go with a gutted non functioning generator that had the tensioner on it, but only served as an arbor. Im building a traditional inspired kb hot-rod
now and might very well consider the alt on the rear axle/ gen on the engine.

You are certainly figuring things out on your own, but some grain o salt input comes with the territory.

I wont likely make it top the rmihr before I swap a cummins into my travelette. The 11 mpg on the tow rig might just be a deal breaker at this point. Not sure where I could get a trailer long enough to hall them all in a single trip

I'd guess that at freeway speeds you'll see 2000 rpm on the shaft with a 7" pulley driving a 3.5" pulley on the alternator you'll see 4000 rpm on the alternator. That will give 50 amps on a 62 amp alternator. That will work.
I am glad I have your approvel, guess I will continue with my hotrod. Thank you for giving me the go ahead

Here's how I ran the wire from the alt. Back to the battery. This looks very clean and also will protect the wiring.

Also got the fuel line to carb taken care of, tonight I will mount the fuel pump and finish the line. But you can see the conduit in the frame is a nice touch.

Man, I bet you were about to abandon the entire mission if that alt wouldnt charge, having a custom 1.25" alt pulley would have been way more than the project was worth...

Keep up the great work man. Hats off to ya!

Just in case I never see this beauty in person, can I request a you-tube vid of this thing leaving the line at max rpm?

I have got to hear that engine.

Well today I got the fuel pump mounted and plumbed up. I used dash 6 hoses, the inlet from the tank will be dash 8 to insure there is sufficient fuel to feed the beast.

For those of you who are following this build here's a little incite on brake plumbing. Coincidentally this is the way I have my SSII is set up also. Plumb the front brakes directly from the master cylinder and the use an adjustable proportioning valve to the rear brakes. Then when you set up the brakes adjust the valve so that the rear brakes lock up well after the front ones do. Here a picture of the valve mounted on my truck, you will see the conduit that will be used for wiring just above the valve.

As far as the belt for the water pump goes, I spoke with Jeff today, the plane it to walk a belt on between the crank and water pump. The truck will have an electric fans, and no other accessorys so this should be fine. If I need to I will take a pulley loose, and work the belt on this way

Whose proportioning valve do you like to use?

There is a great fellow in astralia that is repoping the nose badge thank god. I have looked and bought three or four of these grill shells and still never found a good one. This is like the cherry on my hotrod.
